This is a question that any JackSepticEye obsessive will be able to tell you at the top of a hat. But if you're new to the loud, exciting, but mainly loud world of JackSepticEye the most pressing question on your mind will undoubtedly be 'where did this guy's name come from?'


Luckily for you, Sean revealed the origin of his name during a 2014 vlog. The video is linked below, but in short, here's the rundown:

His mother has always called him Jack and a childhood friend found out about this and started to also call him Jack as a joke. One day he was playing football and he got accidentally hit in the eye, hard enough that it started bleeding. Over the next few weeks the eye got a bit infected and then his friend dubbed him 'Jack Septic Eye'. And thus, an iconic username was born.
