BR 3 letter nicknames

A genuine question, whats up with a lot of BR/SA CSGO players having their in-game name consist of only 3 letters? Watching Clutch season 3 I noticed that a lot of BR/SA players have such names, with some teams like hltv.org/team/10826/e-galo having multiple players like that. Is it just a coincidence or there is a reasoning behind it?

He is from São Paulo. I played with him in 1.6 and i never thought that he would be a pro.

How does it even relate to the post. He didn't say that BR players are the only one in the world who use 3 letters as their nicks

idk really, i'd prefer some other nicks but they were already either taken or people just got wrong idea about what's the reason behind it.. Skyline/SkylineGT (my actual nickname) - doesn't sound right in cs Apex - taken Venom - OMG IS IT BECAUSE OF THE MOVIE??? - no fuck off Mr Inferno/Inferno - IS THAT BECAUSE U LIKE MAP INFERNO??? also fuck off Zex - they kept saying sex -.- (sure i get it but cmon) in 2016 i settled with mds and that's about it.. (only to figure out few years later that there's another guy called mds which is pro/semi pro depends how u want it but at least our sign up date is 4 months of difference so at least that's something)

There are two types of 3 letter nicknames, just randomly put together letters, which may or may not be the player's initials, or an actual word that has a meaning and an attachment to the player in some way. The first type is gross.

if i'm right they're cutting their name/surname to make it easier like in football, no one would remember full name of "kaka- Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite", "ronaldinho - Ronaldo de Assis Moreira Junior"
