What We Know About His Family And Real Name
Muselk is an Australian game lover, known for his distinctive gaming videos on Twitch and YouTube. However, as you might already be thinking, ‘Muselk’ is not his original name from his family. So, what is his real name?
He was originally born as Elliott Watkins and his birth date is given as 23rd November 1994. A native of Sydney in New South Wales, Australia, Muselk was always inclined to gaming and everything related to it from childhood. He started playing video games at a very young age and in 2012, he created his YouTube channel – Muselk. The channel’s first video made by the gamer garnered lots of views after its release.
While we do not know much about the gamer’s family, we have confirmed that he has a sister known as Grace Watkins. Grace is also a YouTuber and does her vlogs on the platform. She was born on September 11, 1992. So, she is two years of Muselk’s elder. As of this writing, Grace has amassed over 5,500 subscribers on her YouTube Channel and over 47,000 followers on her Instagram page.
She is one of the video directors of a YouTube Channel known as ‘Click,’ which features videos from a team of Australia-based social media influencers. Other members of the group include her brother Muselk, LazarBeam, BazzaGazza, Prestige Clips (also known as Marcus), Loserfruit, and Crayator.
How Did The Name ‘Muselk’ Come About?
After we’ve known the avid gamer’s real name, let’s take out a moment to consider his professional name side by side. How come the name ‘Muselk’? What is its meaning and why did the gamer choose it? While we are yet to arrive at the actual meaning of the name, which is not popular in the USA, we have been able to find that it is popular mostly in Norway and Australia.
As for why the gamer chose the name, Muselk made a video where he answered some questions fans are asking about him, including his name. According to the gamer, before he began his career, he looked for a name that sounds so weird and short. That’s how Muselk popped up and today, he has become widely known by the name.
A Peep Into The Gamer’s Personal Life
Muselk may seem outgoing in his videos but the popular gamer is quite private with his personal life. It is not clear if the YouTube star is dating anyone at the moment as he does not share such information with the public. But Watkins was reportedly in a relationship with HyperShamer, who is a fellow YouTuber, also known as Hannah. The two went their separate ways in 2016.
After calling it quits with HyperShamer, the next date ever linked to Muselk is Lynette. Also known as Lunebun, Lynette is also a gamer who often appeared in Muselk’s videos, playing alongside him. However, they’ve not been seen together in recent times.
There was also a brief relationship that went on between Muselk and a female YouTuber named Oasis. They even formed a gaming duo known as Oaselk on Overwatch. However, Oasis would later reveal that there is no romance between them. She also mentioned about dating someone else.
It is hard to tell which of the above relationships were purely on romance basis or whether they were based on professional shared interest as gamers. However, the gamer seems to be really in a romantic relationship, this time with the singer Liv Bevan, who competed in the 7th Season of the singing competition reality show, The Voice Australia.
