BF3 & Origin Accounts Linked

A week-old tweet by DICE community manager Daniel Matros notes that player names in Battlefield 3 will be linked to the player's Origin account, in response to the question: "Will it still be possible in BF3 to freely choose your ingame nick(soldiername),like it has been with BFBC2?" His exact response was: "your name is linked to your origin persona." This is interpreted by BF3Blog to possibly mean that each Origin account will only be allowed to create one soldier for the upcoming military shooter sequel, but the tweet doesn't seem to be definitive about this. He also later responded "we'll clarify that going forward" to the question: "Will our Origin ID have to be our BF3 soldier name? Or can you make up a new name?"

Origin lets you use set a profile nickname ("Origin ID"), similar to how Steam lets you set a separate nickname. You can change it freely at any time. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that's probably the thing that's being used, not your email address or your original EA account name.
