How did Skrillex get it's name?

I know how deadmau5 got theirs, but I starting thinking about Skrillex's name. How did it come to be? Also, how did he get so famous so quickly?

    Skrillex is just a cool name he made. I'm guessing someone was either drunk in the process of the name he got, or it just popped in his head one day. As for the 2nd question, He made dubstep that was more dance and fun oriented, and it sold well among both casual listeners and non-hipster dubstep fans. He got his break from deadmau5 and mau5trap records, which explains how he got sold on a larger scale than most small-time dubstep artists.
