Global PokédeX Plus Forums _ General Discussion _ Where did your username come from?

Posted by: Lunastar Apr 26 2009, 02:18 PM

I've seen a lot of unique and intresting usernames around here, and I'm really curious about where some of them came from. I know some of them probably have some nice stories behind them, so share them here! ^^

Also, this is kinda like a contest at the same time (if you feel like it) Nominate someone you think:
1. Has the coolest name
2. Or vote for someone who has the best story behind said name

I, personally, changed usernames from site to site. When thinking about one for here, I decided to go outside my usual Silver or Kunada (If your curious about those two, ask anyway XD) and use one I either hadn't used ever before, or only once before. It took forever for me to remember that I went by Luna on a vampire RP site, when I was trying to see if one of my friend would recognize me if I changed my name (it actually worked for a month, until I gave them my Gaia username. Whoops) Since Luna was taken, I just added 'star' as a suffix (Warrior fans will know that 'star' is given to leaders of Clans) and there you go. A username I could actually remember :P

Edit: GAH. I am SUCH a noob, despite the fact that my group is 'member.' A thread exactly like this already exsists pinch.gif

it's a long long history..

nowaday I hardly remember the reason why adopted this nickname
but I know that are two words combined, one is Kenshin and the other one is
the japanse word of Grotesque

It's an Old nickname.. but I'm so happy with it cat.gif
greetings fellas~

Posted by: Fire Phoenix Apr 26 2009, 11:16 PM

I liked Phoenix's at the time I joined, but I like it better if people called me Suzaku.

Posted by: kenguro Apr 26 2009, 11:21 PM

so you will be from now on Suzaku

Posted by: Arekya Apr 27 2009, 12:20 AM

Kiriel is the name of a ball jointed doll I own, a character of mine for RPs and stories, and is a demonic character in a book I read (though mine is female and the book's isn't). Kiriel also means Mirror of Souls.
*Edit* Whoops, I forgot Kiriel had already been taken here, so I used my older nickname, based off my real name but edited up, Arekya (from Alexa). I like creating names based other names and then using them in stories and such.

Posted by: Himawari Apr 27 2009, 12:24 AM

My username is from a manga that I really love "Koko ni Iru Yo!" and Himawari is one of the main characters from that manga. It means 'sunflower' in Japanese. :]

Posted by: Mi10ticFan Apr 27 2009, 12:25 AM

Mi10tic: I fiddled with Milotic by changing the 'l' and 'o' into numbers

I actually like to be called candy, or mystic

Posted by: Wolf Princess of the Moon Apr 27 2009, 12:30 AM

I just used my Gaiaonline name. XD
But when I thought up that name for Gaia, I like Wolves and when I thought of Wolves I thought of the moon. XD and I just added Princess for fun. XD I usually go by Wolfie for short. grin.gif

Posted by: Gengardevoir Apr 27 2009, 01:13 PM

It was back in August that I thought it was cool to merge Gardevoir and Gengar. Patchy is my usual name, which is my nickname irl, and short for my real name.

Posted by: Mentarie Apr 27 2009, 01:17 PM

My username is a fusion between my real name and my prefer Pokemon's name : Mentali (Espeon in Franch).

Marie + Mentali = Mentarie. =)

Posted by: crob8 Apr 27 2009, 01:23 PM

Well, I used to use mirage on websites, since I couldnt think of stuff, but I found that a lot of people use the username, so I got my favourite pokemon, crobat, and was gonna make it Crob@ (since @ is commonly used as at in some cases) but the website I first tried it on didn't allow @ and other symbols in usernames, so I chose eight for no reason whatsoever XD

Posted by: musical Apr 27 2009, 01:44 PM

i use Musical for pretty much everything. my gaiaonline username is Musical Tears, but on that i just go by Musical. also, on dragonflycave, i'm Musical. On my leafgreen game, my character is named Musical. hey, i like music.

Posted by: Rukario Apr 27 2009, 01:49 PM

I used Rukario for a short time span before joining here, knowing it was the Japanese Lucario. But, when I did come here, I realised that there was a 'dex, which could use Japanese names, so it probably isn't that original here. sad.gif

Posted by: PKEgglover Apr 27 2009, 03:56 PM

I'm an Avid fan of the Mother series and the psychic power is usally called PK.
I also LOVE Eggs!

Posted by: Choco Apr 27 2009, 04:03 PM

When I was 12 (or was it 11? I really don't remember. I think 11.) I made this website called 'chocolate pikachu' (it was terrible, ugh). That became my username for everywhere for a long time until I started asking myself why. I hate pikachu. Why is it in my username? People were calling me Choco anyway so I just started signing up with that. When it's not taken I use CicadaShell or BatFood. Just because they sound cool. :U

Posted by: Lunastar Apr 27 2009, 05:23 PM

XD Some of your stories made me snicker (It was friendly, I swear!) Does anyone know if there is an option to change your username? It'd be quite silly if there wasn't, but I have no clue how, and Im sure Im not alone O.o

*ish surprised to get such wonderful responses grin.gif*

Posted by: Ririka Apr 27 2009, 05:29 PM

I can't really remember where my name come. XD

It is actually my name on several other sites, so I would have to trek back to the first sight I had this name on. I just..random played around with litters and words until I came up with this, then years later ended up finding out it is an actual "name" from some cartoon or anime, but -shrugs- whatever.

I liked the name so I stuck with it.

Posted by: Mist Wanderer Apr 27 2009, 06:13 PM

It, and my member title, come from an RP forum I work on. It's Naruto-based, and I help run Mist village, hence Mist. My old character (before I retired him) spent long stretches out of the village (though he shouldn't have--he was the leader), hence Wanderer. I also had a banner in my signature at one point with it. Spirit Walker is the title the character I had between that one and my current one had, owing to his talking to ghosts and keeping a veritable herd of them around. I briefly used the first one's character name here (Saito) but switched it when I could to something that sounded better.

My title at most other forums is Darkloid_Blues, but this one doesn't allow underscores, so. <<

Posted by: Suzuki Apr 27 2009, 07:30 PM

I played out of a Suzuki Violin book for my Solo & Ensamble.
i thought it was a cool name-I even named my gerbil Sukki (its short for Suzuki)

Posted by: Acid Apr 27 2009, 07:33 PM

Mine is just a character I made that I just....stole the name from. I'm a thief like that. I'm pretty much known as the same thing everywhere, so I don't really want to change it.

Posted by: SpeedStaple Apr 27 2009, 08:36 PM

Well there was an author who had moose in the name. So I decided, "I like moose!" and combined it with an adjective to get LethargicMoose, which I actually used on some pet site. Then I realized that sounded horrible. So, for another site, I took an opposing word, speed, and combined it with the coolest sounding random object. Now it's my username most places I go.

Posted by: marvree Apr 28 2009, 09:06 AM

Marvree comes from Marv that was my older brother that died when he was 9. Vree comes from Vrijheid --> Freedom in English and together it was Marvree so yeah.

Posted by: Lugia295622 Apr 28 2009, 09:07 AM

Lugia comes from the pokemon lugia. I'm going to change my username to something that involves Keroro Gunso and pokemon. Cause that's the kind of person I am. xD

Posted by: Ashi Apr 28 2009, 04:08 PM

I'm positive everyone thinks I'm so lame for having the nick name "Ashi" or that I'm some wannaba-girl-ash from pokemon. TRUTH BE TOLD I actually hate hate HATE Ash from pokemon. With a passion I do!

I got the nick name "Ashi" short for "Ashley" since the girly/preppy name didn't really suit me. Me and my old friend would watch Princess Mononoke over, and over, and ooover again until we had every line from the movie memorized. She use to always call me "Ashitaka", the male lead from the move. But it one day shortened to "Ashi" and I've been stuck with it ever since.

I wouldn't change it for anything. <3

Posted by: Lunastar Apr 28 2009, 05:22 PM

I am both surprised and delighted about the turn out of names ^-^ So far, if I had to nominate someone, I would say Musical, but only because Im an epic music fan and band geek. So... heh. What do you all think?

And another story, this time behind the name Silver, my most common: One day I found my sister on a Warrior based roleplay site. Being both in love with Warriors and stories, it seemed perfect. I had everything picked out and ready for me to join the sight, except for one thing... a name noes.gif Seeing as I was basing my character of my current cat, Cinder, I decided to find a fitting name. I couldn't use Cinderpaw, because she was then a character in the books, and I didn't want to copy. The only other grey color I could imagine at the moment was Silver, so my character was Silverpaw. When the site died shortly after my arrival, the name carried to my next site, ITM. I was on ITM from a few months after it's birth, to its death, were by the time Silver had become my permenant nickname cat.gif In fact, ITM2 was created recently, and if you're intrested, please please please contact me. We're trying to get everyone together after the head admin deleted the site for no apperent reason and we lost everyone's contacts :-/

Posted by: Dys Tuvai Apr 29 2009, 03:59 AM

Pretty well copypasta from the other thread here that asked this question...

Dys Tuvai is an amalgam of several things.

The Dys part stems from 'Dysschema', a moth genus. I did one of those memes ages ago which involved using random Wikipedia articles as answers, and it threw 'Dysschema' at me as a band name. I REALLY loved the idea - and in time, Dysschema became my... second-most common name.

The Tuvai part... I am a huge fan of the Wild ARMs series. I was watching a clip on Youtube of the final boss fight of Wild ARMs - Alter Code: F (the enhanced remake of the first game... I liked the original better. <<) and really loved the theme that played through it. Said final boss is named Zeik Tuvai. I have no idea why, but The 'Tuvai' part sort of snapped in my mind and connected with the 'Dys' of Dysschema... And I've been randomly going as Dys Tuvai in some places ever since. XD

Posted by: Kuda Apr 29 2009, 04:27 PM

Short for Kuda-Kitsune.

Ever since i read that one XXXHolic manga volume with that adorable/awesome kuda-kitsune in it, It's been my favourtie mythical beast since. Partnered with dragons of course <3

Kuda-Kitsune means 'Pipe-Fox Spirit"

Posted by: Palindrome Apr 29 2009, 05:09 PM

My real name is Hannah. With that comes only two nicknames in life: Hannah Banana and Palindrome. Hence the username.

Posted by: LilzGold Apr 29 2009, 08:56 PM

LilzGold comes from a dead relative who I've never met. I just stole her name and edited it till it sounded cool to me happy.gif Her name was Lillian Godbold and she was something like my grandmother's aunt or something far off. Originally it was gonna be LilzGod, but I felt uncomfortable with the "God" part. It would've probably make me seem up myself or something.

Posted by: Holy Gehenna Apr 30 2009, 06:33 PM

"Gehenna" is the name for Hell in the Angel Sanctuary manga by Kaori Yuki. Add "Holy" in front of it and you have "Holy Hell"- which could be taken as a curse or as an oxymoron, depending on your mood. xD

I like Porygon so...Pory, there aren't an interesting story behind, sorry :P

Posted by: DresdenComplex Apr 30 2009, 08:20 PM

Last year for English I had to write a research paper centering around the works and critisims of one author so I chose Kurt Vonnegut. I had read Slaughterhouse Five earlier in the year and that book is centered around the firebombing of Dresden during WWII. One day I was making up random screenames for random anime characters (I was bored...) and some how came up with about five somehow pertaining to Dresden. When I started making accounts on different sites I just picked one of the screenames I had made up. When one ended up not fitting (to many characters in it) I chose another one. I decided on DresdenComplex XD

My name is the same on every site so if anyone has seen a DresdenComplex (with or without a dash between the two words) it 's me.... I'm just so original... XD

Posted by: Christopher Wallken Apr 30 2009, 08:23 PM

Christopher Walken is a well known actor who has been in movies such as one of the Batman movies (which ever one has the penguin) as well as Hairspray. He is well known for his famous line "MORE COWBELL!" etc.

Pretty much I was watching Grandmas Kisses and there is a line where they yell his name so I made it my Steam User Nickname and it stuck.

Posted by: AlanaMae Apr 30 2009, 08:25 PM

Just the word "Evolution", really xD

Posted by: Koolkatt Apr 30 2009, 10:25 PM

A long time ago, when I played on virual pet sites (like neopets and marapets.) I just randomly chose a name, and at that time I wasn`t all that smart and all ways `spoek lik dis` I used words like `kool`and `katt` so I guess thats sorta were it came from, that and I think katts are kool.

(an alterintive username I have is Kuromimiluna, my friend and I were overly obbsessed with anime in grade 6 so she created a couple charaters , Bandit and Luna... and she came up with Kuromimi...

Posted by: Solx May 1 2009, 01:49 AM

Well, originally it was a name for a character. I was writing a novella for NaNoWriMo and the plot was all seat of my pants, I didn't have names for the two leads so I temporarily named them Sol and Lun. They eventually got more fitting names but I became quite fond of Sol as a moniker and took it.

Posted by: 885ertd May 1 2009, 07:54 AM

Well, it all started as my Neopets username. Since its easy to remember, I use it all the time.

Posted by: Wolfshade May 1 2009, 08:00 AM

I'm a big fan of wolves and one day I just knew: Okay, Wolfshade is my new nickname. And now I use it since 2007. ^^

Posted by: Linkachu May 1 2009, 08:32 AM

Usually this turns into quite a novel, but I'll try to keep it short. Ages back, about 6-8 years ago or so, a friend of mine was in a drawing mood and asked for suggestions. At first I told him to draw Mog (the Moogle) with a Link hat, but I quickly changed my mind and told him to draw a Raichu with a Link cap instead. I've always loved Raichu, and I have a strange obsession with Link's hat, the Triforce, and the Master Sword.

Anyways, he drew the picture and showed it to me, saying, "It's a Linkachu!" I loved the creation and the name, so it stuck. However, I didn't technically start using it as a screen name for quite sometime (possibly 2-3 years later). When joining a new forum I'd wanted something that wasn't as generic as my usual Pokemon-related nickname (Raichu) and Linkachu worked nicely. Been using it ever since.

Posted by: Corri May 1 2009, 02:44 PM

I've had this nickname/username on other sites before.
But it's a shortened nickname for Coriander. A plain, but
really pretty (I think) flower. However.. on here, Cori was
already taken, so I just added the double 'rr'. I think I
like it better this way. cat.gif

Posted by: KT2 May 4 2009, 10:55 PM

Posted by: Mariku May 5 2009, 12:28 PM

This is a shortened version of my normal user name, Mariku -- Kitten.

Mariku comes from Marik from Yu-Gi-Oh, who is my favourite character. I was originally called that by my girlfriend beause I was a psychopath during duels and I had the Winged Dragon of Ra in my deck. The kitten was later added because...well, I'm a kitty -3- But I didn't add that here due to laziness....

Since nearly everybody got problems speaking out my full Name (Berenika -_-2.gif') espacially some of my japanese Friends, they took the first 3 letters "Ber" of my Name and changed it into "Be-ru". It also signs me, because I'm wearing a little Bell (jap. ベル, Beru) at my neck or in my hair ^//^ I also got bells at my bag ňÓ.

They're just very intresting Stories about your nicknames happy.gif

mine came from my ex. i was having issues finding a username for something(i'm guessing gaiaonline) a year or two ago, and he suggested this name to me. i've been using it everywhere ever since. :P

Posted by: Doommagic May 6 2009, 02:40 AM

It's actually a shortened version of a name of a character I created for a fandom I was in years ago: Doom of the Unlucky Magics. She was basically a talking black cat with magical powers who was out to create Armageddon...Unfortunately, she really sucked at it and her powers always backfired on her. XD But as you can see, that name is a bit of a mouthful, and when I first started using it as a username, just 'Doom' was already taken, so I tacked on 'magic' and there we have it. ^^

Posted by: Hisashi Shoutai May 6 2009, 03:08 AM

Posted by: Neverland May 6 2009, 11:49 AM

Had a tab open at livejournal when I was signing up for this site. Was looking at someone with Tinklebell in their icon and thought why not when asked for a username. I never use the same nick name at any site.

Posted by: Pakuretsu May 6 2009, 12:14 PM

My name comed from when i was little, and wanted to play runescape, i inputed a usual nickname my friend did (we shared accounts the) and it showed it's in use, and showed i could put some numbers, so i chosoe the chocie 00999 happy.gif cause it's pretty easy, i dunno why :*

Posted by: Petetg14 May 6 2009, 12:51 PM

Man, I've used this name for as long as I can remember. Basically it comes from Family Guy, which was my favorite show a few years ago. Peter Griffin=Peter G, and 14 for my age when I made the account. It's just been so easy to remember, its my insta-name.

Posted by: PsygnosDoraemon May 6 2009, 04:46 PM

Pretty long story.

Back then, one of my favorite game developers was Psygnosis, with DMA Design, who also worked with them periodically. Both were responsible for the famed Lemmings, Appearing on the Amiga and later other formats, even the canceled arcade conversion by Data East. Another part of my name was the exact name of the anime Doraemon. No, it's not another Pokémon clone, this anime came many years before the Pokémon franchise even made it's humble beginnings, and was around when the creator of your praised game was young Japanese lad collecting bugs as a hobby. The anime itself was a bright moment for me to cherish while back when I started watching some episodes I was at my pretty dark moments of life, where I was angry over two students from 9th grade and I just refused to forgive them. I pretty much got over that grudge, and I'm now truly laid back.

Posted by: MarillTachiquin May 6 2009, 04:55 PM

Doraemon FTW! A good, classic Anime that has more than 30 or 40 years airing, even it's creators have passed away.


About my username, I've use it maybe since Pokemon Gold/Silver. Marill became one of my favorite pokemon and Tachiquin is my last name. It used to be Marill_Tachiquin, but on a pokemon forum, I tried to change it from a depressing name I had because of something that happened to me, to my old username, but there was a new "# characters limit", so it became MarillTachiquin.

I always use that username on everywhere =P

Posted by: KuroV May 6 2009, 04:59 PM

It's just a shortening of a username I use on other forums. Nothing special. =P

My username came from my love of the name "Karl" (who knows why! I love that name! And no, Karl is not my name)
I think the numbers came from....me subconsciously forgetting and remembering. Came from an anime show called S-Cry-Ed, when the main character was a prisoner(long story I guess...) his cell name was MP3228, and I guess(not even thinking about it) I put in Karl3328 for my first account on something else X3
It may sound confusing, because, well...it is! I really don't know what made me choose the numbers XD but yep, my username is Karl3328 (I have a few others on other forums, but those are other stories)

Well it kinda just popped in my head....but I knew i wanted it to end with the world "Angel"

I like the starlights on sailor moon so... thats where i got star light from.

Spyke was taken. I use Spyke in all my usernames, sometimes with a variation, such as SpykePine, SpykePorcupine, Hunter_Spyke, etc depending on size restrictions and mood.

My username comes from Azumanga Daioh and ChiyoChan is the name of one of the characters from Azumanga Daioh.

My username is what I've been going by on a LOT of sites recently. It's the title of a song by Dax Riggs, who happens to be one of my favorite artists.

Posted by: Sofa King May 6 2009, 11:19 PM

Normally I go by Nútsjesmoar, which is Frisian for peanut-butter. The story behind that is more complicated.

The story behind this username is far simpler (and hilariously juvenile). Just say the following out loud (Preferably with several people around in the room to hear you):

"I AM SOFA KING, WE TODD ED!"

Good times, good times.

Posted by: Silver Saoirse May 7 2009, 06:50 AM

I usually use the name SaoirseWaveglow, because it's my Wiccan name, but I use Silver Saoirse on petsites. It's just kinda random.

I'm SaoirseWaveglow on all non-petsites though. XDD

Ok class it is time history srsfacts.gif Ok Long ago I was called pokemonlover1639 but then I started playing pikmin so I changed to Pokeminlover/pokeminlover1639 when I played club penguin I was Pokeminlovercp Then I remember homestarrunner so Stinkoman and Homsar
were my favorite characters so fused they are Stinkosar and there class dismissed!

Back in my veeery early days on Dragon Cave, I worked super super hard to come up with gorgeous names for each and every dragon. I used Thesauruses and everything to make sure the meaning fit the dragon and everything. When I got my first special event dragon, I worked hard and eventually came up with the beautiful name Fatal Eloquence for him. Ever since, I've adored the name and I use it on every new site I join :]

My name's nothing special-it's just my username on AIM. XD

Posted by: Decontrolled Raichu May 7 2009, 06:44 PM

Was surfing Youtube when I came across a fan-made tribute to Raichu. Clicked on it and the song playing in the background was "Decontrol" by Drist. 2 and 2 clicked together in my mind and the phrase Decontrolled Raichu was born.

Posted by: Amina May 7 2009, 07:28 PM

I was in need of a new name for a wolf character that I would role play so I sort of re-arranged the word animal and came up with Amina grin.gif

Posted by: Lilo May 7 2009, 10:14 PM

Back in the day, I played a game called Darkness Falls, I was in search of a name, and the movie Lilo and Stitch was just coming into theatres, voila! Lilo was born!
I'm always surprised when I can use it on a site because it's either too short or already taken. If either of those are the case I go with Horsetears and the story for that is, I love horses and wanted something other than horselover or something lame like that, lol! So a lot of thinking later, I got a name I use practically everywhere =D

Posted by: Khyrstal May 8 2009, 01:52 AM

My name came from the craziest misspelling of my real name. A teacher once spelled my name as Khyrstian, which is totally wrong in so many ways. I thought it was funny, though, so I remembered it. Usually I just stop at Khyrst, but it's hard to pronounce, so I added the extra letters to make it a funky spelling of Crystal.

Posted by: Augustanna May 8 2009, 08:16 AM

August - first 6 letters of my family name. But I also use Augustanna [Anna's my name] version, because "August" is quite popular nickname ;F

Also, it is pronounced in different way.
Although, I have no idea how to write it phonetic for English-speakers :<
It sounds almost like this - http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/00/Pl-augustow.ogg , just without last two letters "ów" .

Posted by: Skyle369 May 8 2009, 08:25 AM

One day I was excited when AQW was going to be launched one day so I have to prepare a very awesome usernames
and make a poll to show it to my classmates. I had Skyle369, Shante369, Sonyle369 and I forgot the others but the one with most votes is Skyle369 so thatys why its my username. And why 369, because 3 is the first multipication table I ever memorized so its like 3 x 1 = 3, 3 x 2 = 6, 3 x 3= 9 so its 369.

Posted by: creepsly May 8 2009, 04:34 PM

I used to love the Cirque du Freak book series and Mr. Crepsley was my FAVORITE character. Naturally, I was crushed when he died. ( His death also shoved me away from the series. ) So, nowadays I use his name as my user name for sites I think I won't be interested in. I really do adore this site, though.

As to why it's 'creepsly' and not 'crepsley'... Well, I was about fourteen back then and always pronounced it 'creepsly'. It stuck ever since.

I'm also a fan of not capping the first letter in user names.

I hate it when people do it to pokemon, wow pets and other pets. Drives me crazy.

Posted by: MarinaMarth May 8 2009, 04:39 PM

Marina = Marina Liteyears. Ultra Intergalatic Cybot-G. Mischief Makers. If those names ring a bell in your head, you're officially the awesome in my book! =D If you don't, well... Marina's the crazy looking gal on my avi! XD

Marth = From Fire Emblem, a game series I adore. Also my main character in Super Smash Bros Brawl.

Posted by: Inerri May 8 2009, 04:53 PM

Inerri started as a name of my kajit character in morrowind (for those that don't know, kajit are a cat like beast race) I wanted to make one but I didn't want her to have an unfitting name. So after clicking reload for ten minutes on a name generator that popped up and I've used it ever since.

I was on neopets, and I wanted another account, and I couldn't think of a username, so I just sat there, and I heard my sister saying, "Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear. Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair." So I decided to use that, but FuzzyWuzzy was taken, so I tried Fuzziewuzzie. That was taken too, so I did fuzziewuzzie105, the 105 was from my old account, maddog105, which was also my email at the time, and was 105 because at the time I was 10, and my lucky number is 5. So I just tagged on the 105, and got fuzziewuzzie105, and that's been my username for everything ever since.

The name that appears by my posts is Anime, but my full username (which I use everywhere) is animetriplicate. Before I knew anything of the world of coding and hosting, I had this idea for a site which I would call Anime Triplicate. That idea kinda died, but I liked the name so much that, when I started joining sites and needed a usename, I went with it. I've stuck with it ever since.

It's an alias I came up with years ago. It started out as a name for a character in a story I'm still working on, but eventually I ended up adopting it as an internet persona. I'm a lot more confidant and outspoken when I'm associating what I say with this name. I use it pretty much everywhere, so odds are if you see the name elsewhere, feel free to start a conversation.~

It's just that I was trying to say something else you know, and messed it up real bad, my friend was like ''what the hell did you just say?''

The end. XD

Posted by: Stars of Sand May 13 2009, 03:09 PM

There's not exactly an amazing story behind "Stars of Sand".

Well, when I was about 8 or 9, I found a copy of Warrior Cats: Into the Wild.
(Loved the series ever since.)
And I liked Sandstar, and used to pretend I was leader of RiverClan (C'mon, I was only 8. xD)
Then I found a Warrior Cat RP siite a few years later and joined as sandstar97.
Sandstar's been everything ever since.. Photobucket, Lunapic, Xbox 360 gamertag, almost every forum I join(the username to this account is sandstar. xD).
I wanted something slightly different, and since one of my Xbox buddies once said as a joke, "Are you a star made out of sand?" I decided on Stars of Sand. I think it's quite pretty, so if I join some more sites, Stars of Sand will probably be the display name.
I'll most probably start adding things from Chronicles of Ancient Darkness, too. Stars of Sand COULD be linked with that... sorta. xD

I started out as Black Knight from FE9, then Black Dragon from FE9. I wanted to make a joke about how I always had Black in my name and chose Ice because it sounded cool and it somewhat described Weavile.

About a year after that, the AC/DC album was announced. I'm not named after that album, or the rap group. Or the band. Or anything else named Black Ice. Just to clear up any confusion, since I've had plenty of people try to strike up AC/DC conversations with me >>

I came up with it a few years ago when I was looking for something unique and pretty to use as my account name on Fanfiction.net, as I'd seen a bunch of stupid and/or forgettable names while browsing around. I looked out my window, saw a redbud tree, and it clicked. I've stuck with it ever since.

Chraelix actually started out as the name of my very first adoptable from Valenth. (A Kumos, no less) I liked it so much I started using it for everything awesome.gif

Posted by: Mukumuku May 15 2009, 03:37 PM

Hmm... Well, my username came from my addiction to the harvest Moon games from long ago. I think I started playing Wonderful Life on GC, say, 5-6 years ago? Something like that, when Gamecubes were new and amazing and everyone wanted to play SSBM and Pikmin 8D

So then, some background. Mukumuku is this white beastie thing that can be found in the forest area near the harvest sprite mushroom tree house or whatever it is. According to some glitch stories, if he likes you, he'll give you a pet lizard. So, I didn't really like him at first. ya know? Mukumuku is big, furry, and probably smells like 3 week old poop... but then, i saw Darien, the mad scientist of our lovely farmer village, trying to capture Mukumuku for one reason or another. And of course, I was like OMG ANIMAL ABUSE STOP IT NOW BIOTCH OR I'LL EAT YOU.

And from that day on, I was in love. To the point where I named my cat mukumuku... even though she's a girl. they have a lot in common, though 8D;;;

Why yes, i am a video game addict. why else would I be on a pokemon site? wink.gif

Mukumuku has pretty much always been my default SN, minus those dorky 6th and 7th grade japanese obssession years...

My avatar piccy is of Muku, if anyone doesn't already know him and his pwnageness <3

Wait, 42 isnt on my screenname.... oh well. Its my username.

Posted by: bluecheshirecat May 15 2009, 04:33 PM

Bluecheshirecat was one of the first characters I made up when I was younger - a rather terrible one, hardly any depth to him. Character development is not a fifth graders forte facepalm.gif
However, it makes a fairly effective username, and I've been using it for a few years now - it's the same as my livejournal. I've been using the username of kookaburra more recently, hence the avatar, after the folk song.
I might make a new character for this username later on, but I haven't made any efforts yet.

Posted by: Lilac Lana May 15 2009, 04:35 PM

Well, my favourite colour is pink (not lilac;; ) and my favourite animal is a panda. But when I tried to register at some place as PinkPanda, it was taken. Another colour I liked was lilac and LilacPanda was not taken. And I used that for a while. Then I just took a notion to use Lana, my nickname, instead of panda. Which became LilacLana, I like alliteration, so it stuck. |D

Umm.. I just came it up for an MMORPG character of mine.. then I just liked the name enough to give to my dragon character on DeviantArt.. which ended up becoming my very own 'dragon-form'.

Thus, I always name myself Trica on the internet from now on! XD

Posted by: Elysian Sable May 16 2009, 08:18 PM

Elysian Sable was crafted in my attempt to create a name for a story I'm writing for the main hero. I like Greek mythology, so I looked at things there, and I liked the name Elysian/Elysium, and it was inspired by a song also called Elysian. The Sable came later, which simply means darkness, or something to that effect, so there.

Posted by: Inoka May 16 2009, 09:20 PM

In grade 3 I made a story called "Ingoroka", or something to that effect.
My friends told me the name was too long, so I shortened it to "Inoka".
Ever since then, I've been using Inoka as my username.

Posted by: Douken Sota May 16 2009, 09:37 PM

Well, I first started RPing on myspace as Cloud Strife, but people complained on my methods (mostly the materia). They called using multiple elements GMing. So I decided to make a character to control only 1 element, the mage Douken Sota from Lyrann... ever since, it has been my online alias and my character's name when I RP.

Posted by: ZealiSee May 16 2009, 09:39 PM

It all started with an old old forum I joined called Ponju. I was trying to think of an interesting word, and found 'Zeal' in the dictionary... and figured it sounded awesome. But back then I was Zeal_The_Jugaloo_Piggy... I kept shortening it, 'Zeal_The_Piggy', 'ZealdaPigga'... and now it's Zeal.

Posted by: Rhyu May 17 2009, 02:53 PM

Mine is the name of uhhh... my silly little mental character. I think I made that name up a good maybe 6 years ago. It changes every so often when I get tired. Its kinda turning into Rio right now, and used to be Flare.

It doesn't mean anything per say. Its not a butchered spelling of dragon in japanese, which people seem to assume, its just random. Has nothing to do with street fighter either.

Posted by: randompeep May 17 2009, 02:55 PM

On the first forum I joined, it was originally going to be randomperson, but that was already taken, so it was changed to randompeep. The name stuck across 4 other forums, including this one.

Posted by: Midori Kappa May 17 2009, 03:02 PM

Mine came from by a character that i made as "fursona", it's a odd kappa (the japanese swamp monster) she haven't the turtle's shell and duck bills but she's green and have a pair of fin XD
So, because long time ago on msn i used (and use) the signature "midori kappa no densetsu" (translation it's like: "The legend of the green kappa" or "Legendary green kappa"...i'm bit confused T_T) now i use this as nickname =)

p.s.:In my avatar you can see the old look, the new it's quite similar but without glasses

Uhmm. I like Dawn/Hikari, and I RP as her, so I thought it would fit. My name was originally Saya Otonashi, from Blood+, but I changed it to be more Pokemon-ish, though both Dawn and Hikari were taken, and thus you have Hikarii.

Posted by: Syreon May 19 2009, 03:12 AM

Whew, this is a bit of a complicated one. I have an original story (planned novel) that features three main characters with Greek/Roman names to tie them in; one of them, the main!main, is Kyros, which is derived from Greek kyrios for "lord" and also could be derived from Hebrew Koreish from Persian Khur as a name for the sun. I grew really fond of these names, so when I found myself next making a new username on a site somewhere, I played around with it and got Kyros→Cyrus→Syr- as a cool-sounding prefix. It also ties in because I made up the name Siriana for a character ages ago and could easily change it to Syriana (this was way before the movie or before I'd heard of Pax Syriana, btw).

So my username on deviantART is Syrical (a play on 'lyrical') and, because I love the Eeveelutions, I decided my Pokémon-related usernames could be Syreon.

LONG STORY SHORT, Syreon = Eeveelution of the sun; possibly Flying-type. ♥

Posted by: KendoSword May 19 2009, 07:20 AM

First, I was my own name. Bad idea. Then I was Jigsawpuff. Stupid idea. Then I decided to name myself Shiny Suicune, after one of my favorite legendary Pokemon. Plus, it's cooler when it's shiny to me, because it's all blue. lion.gif But I decided that was a bit...meh, and quickly thought of a cool-sounding word to use as my next username. Bingo! I got Kendo, a Japanese fencing-like sport the likes of which I had never played before. Whenever the name was taken on a website, I'd choose ShinyKendo, in homage to Shiny Suicune. But I decided ShiynKendo sounded a bit dummykins, a little dumbtown. ( O_O ) So in my latest forum destinations, I've used KendoSword!

That's pretty much the complete history of my usernames. cat.gif

Posted by: GothyBeans May 19 2009, 02:26 PM

It's the name I use for my online comic - I got to used to signing all the text entries with "from GothyBeans", that I started using it for forum names elsewhere. I also get paranoid about people impersonating me on other sites. Stupid I know, as nobody actually knows who I am.

Posted by: Ebonycrow May 22 2009, 07:34 PM

Mine's about two years old now (before that I can't remember what it was), but it started as a name I'd be recognized as when in a coven--but I scratched that shortly after. I started to think it was a little ridiculous, some of the new agey stuff I was reading with "modern witchcraft" and it totally turned me off--I'm a traditionalist through and through and have no desire whatsoever to rely on modern practices of any kind. I kept the name though because I thought it was pretty, and it's now my pen name.

Posted by: Breccard May 22 2009, 08:25 PM

Hah, it started years ago (Maybe I was 10 or 11) when I was hyper and being random with someone about lemons and bananas... then we combined them into lemonanas, and I was the lemonanaqueen... so that was my name, until I tried combining bananas and mangos into Banango.

And then someone in an online game called me Ango, which no one did... But I liked it, and I just threw 'tan' after it to make it look spiffy.

Posted by: Twig May 28 2009, 07:13 PM

Well I use the name Twig 'cause I got from a book, Pendragon The Pilgrims of Rayne, I was reading. When I came to this one part of the book it described a girl named Twig. Here's how she was described "A tall scrawny girl with long stringy blond hair came up to me." I had to read this part over again 'cause for a second I thought it was describing me. Yeah, so that's basically where my name came from.

Posted by: PredatorLung May 28 2009, 09:13 PM

Late last year I got into this whole Predator obsession, and of course, Predator was taken as a username on the site I was signing up for. Thus, I tried to think of something interesting to add to the end. In the end, I decided on throwing a random organ at the end.
PredatorLung sounded pretty decent, and I love it to death. I try to sign up as Travis on websites, usually, being that's my widespread alias. PredatorLung is a secondary name, but I love it nonetheless.

Blak is a sub-species of a race of creatures I came up with for a story I'm writing. Also, black is my second favorite color. (First is purple, in case you cared.)

99 is my favorite song by Toto, and thus has become my favorite number.

Psy refers to my love of psychology and the inner workings of the mind and personality. My favorite part about writing stories is coming up with the personalities and psychological tics of my various characters. (My writing is strictly for escapism. I don't claim to be some epic author or anything. I just do it for fun.)

I use this name all over the internet. If you see it, it's me.

Tutankoopa is the 2nd boss from Paper Mario.

The first board I registered at was a Mario RPG fansite, and I figured I should've used the name of a character from the games. It stuck ever since, since I really like the nicknames Tut and Tutan.

Sometimes a typo makes it a bit of a meme, but it sticks.

Somethings I think I ought to change it to Tutan though, just to shed myself of Nintendo copyrights.

Posted by: Ruusu May 29 2009, 08:46 PM

Ruusu means "rose" in Finnish.

It was originally name of my bunny, which is now passed away. It died when I was 10 if I remember correctly. But it's still the sweetest and most loveable pet that I've ever had. I give the name Ruusu for it (it was the first pet I could name myself). n__n
When I started to visit in the forums and such, I had always different usernames because I couldn't right away think up something which I felt right for me. Then I typed "Ruusu" and loved it. 8D Also I've developed an obsession for white colored roses afterwards. Sadly I can't figure out a good sounding name which contains both the words "white" and "rose". xP So I'm just Ruusu, probably for the rest of my life and that's fine.

Posted by: DLG Jun 1 2009, 02:44 AM

Well first off. My full user name is DarkLord_Guy, but I use DLG for short, so remember that when you read below.

My name comes from a few things

1.The part that is "Dark" comes from my experiences in the past with drugs and other things such as suicidal thoughts and actions that made me feel left in the dark.

2. The part "lord" comes from the game Fire Emblem, it is my favorite tactical strategy game and the protagonist takes the title "Lord" as a class and is the only character through-out the game that gets that title.

3. The part "Guy" comes from my favorite character in the game Fire Emblem he is a youth who owes a thief lots for saving his life as a youth and happens to have become a Myrmidon(somewhat of a Swordsman apprentice) I liked this character from the first time i met him and had to use him as part of my user name.....oh and uh...my parents originally thought of that as my name but decided against it..

Posted by: eon trainer19 Jun 1 2009, 03:55 AM

Posted by: Imp Jun 1 2009, 03:55 AM

Imp.. Well.. I signed up for a website and I wanted to have a new name. Since my usual nickname on websites was 'Chizzy' or variations 'Chizzu', 'Chizzam', ect, ect.

So Apon signing up I went with "Imposter" since the site was fairly new and I wanted to be able to have a name people would remember(Lol it works. I'm known there xD). As a month went by, people there started calling me 'Imp' so I shortened my new nickname down to Imp. And there you have it. I'm Imp here. bucktooth.gif

Posted by: Draca Dog Jun 1 2009, 05:58 AM

Yeah), but I thinked it would be awesome and with creativity if I am a wolf. And Draca is an uncommon name, Draca Dog is not. And I invented this name..

Posted by: LostRealist Jun 1 2009, 06:31 AM

Lost Realist is the name of a song by a band I like, but it didn't just stop right there, mostly 'cause the song isn't all that great. To me it feels like... Like an idealist who is grounded. Like someone who wants to think positively, and usually does against the odds, except she knows the odds are against her. She knows she's probably wrong in the way she thinks, but she does it anyway.

A realist who is lost in her idealistic fantasies.

Lost Realist.

I adopted the nicknamed for an online game once, and it kinda stuck since then. Most people just call me 'Lost' though, and I think that's just as befitting =D

Posted by: Eudaemon Jun 1 2009, 08:41 AM

Tenshinchigi Years ago when I first joined gaia I was looking for a japanese word meaning heaven, turns out all those names were taken, so I went with the only one that wasn't, it was long, and kinda hard to remember, but it had one hell of a meaning:

Gods of Heaven and Earth.

Posted by: Icykat Jun 1 2009, 12:21 PM

I've had this name back since.. wow. maybe since the first time I got online? xD

Back then, though, it was simply Icy. There were numbers packed onto my name because icy was already taken (Naturally), but from then on everyone called me Icy. I actually created a charizard character based on the name, because they were one of my favourite pokemon at the time.

Over time Icy became Icykat, which is my first screenname and the first three letters of my own name, also a RL nickname of mine. I have a fursona named Icykat, aswell.

So yeah. That's how I got my username. Everyone still calls me Icy, though. ^^

Its actually a combination of Japanese words, (naturally) though in the case of the second word, a part of the word.

"Mizu" is Japanese for "Water" while "tsune" is the last five letters of the Japanese word "Kitsune", which as I'm sure people will know, is "Fox" in English. I'm pretty sure others have used combinations of words like this before, but its something I decided to do with my MSN name from time to time, and this particular Username I'm using right now is the same one I'm using on MSN.

Foxes are my favourite animal, so a lot of the names I use reflect that in some way.

A few years back, when I went to join another forum, I wanted to register as 'Terra', since she was my favorite character in Final Fantasy VI. Someone had already registered that name, though, so I went with 'Celes', instead.

It kind of stuck so I use it at a lot of places now. But not everywhere!

It's my character's true name.

and Nix was already taken. XD

Well, my e-Name changes all the time, going through phases.

I started off as TnTGamer. This was when I was about ten or eleven years old. I went on a site called BBB (Big Boy Battles >.>) and had around 1000 posts there. Then I left that community after about 6 months.

Next, I went to a Mario Kart Wii forum, which was pretty cool. I'd been there before on a different acount called like RacerBoi or something O.o and had 800 posts. But I came back after a LONGG time with a different username, HPGhostZ. I got about 3000 posts on that website under that name. I used the name HPGhostZ for a very long time on the computer, and now its my e-mail. Anyways, I still go to Mariokartwii.com once in a while, but not as much as before. This name originated from the name of my fish, Ghost, and the new computer I had (Hewlett Packard; HP)

Then, after HPGhostZ, I switched to TrickProject. I got that name once I started going on Pokemon Forums such as Marriland and Smogon, because I play Pokemon competetively. I also used it on Shoddy Battle. This name originated from the Pokemon Attack 'Trick.' You can use this to switch the item that you are holding with your opponents, which screws them up.

After that I shortended it Trick, which is what I'm using on this website.

Mine is what I'm going to change my real name to when I'm 18.

My real name is Cheryl, which I hate. It's too cute.

Mine is self-explanatory, for me anyway.

'Siberia' flows better than 'Russia.'

Posted by: TheBlob17 Jun 6 2009, 07:26 PM

I wrote comics when I was younger, and the blob was what the author, AKA me, was called when she went into the comics. I don't know why I was a blob, I just drew the character and I thought she was cute.

Mine is from..my irl name xD

Lo and behold, I shall tell you the story of my e-names. I have multiple around the internet.

The most used one is Neon-Blue-27, which I use on deviantArt. It evolved from "Bluefire the Fox," which was a persona of mine at one point. Always did like anthro characters, you can blame Sonic for that. The 27 was tacked on from part of my main email address.

I also have ShadowSpark on SheezyArt, which was something I made up at random, Ceff on the Raizap forums, which came from one of my old usernames (Crazy_Fox, shortened to CF, then converted to a noun.), and finally...

Ace Trainer Jet, my name on the Serebii forums and here. (Sorta.)

It should be obvious where that came from. In Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum you can talk to a certain NPC to change how you appear on certain Wifi things. I set mine on Pearl to Ace Trainer, and Jet is my trainer's name.


Before any of those I had n00b names like SUPAHGAMAH (Pokecommunity), TopGamePlayer (KWRPG forums), chris_random (new KWRPG forums), and other lame-ass names.

Posted by: Draikette Jun 6 2009, 09:30 PM

I invented my nickname when I was twelve years old (FOREVER ago!)
Some other people started to use it just a couple years ago but if you google "Draikette", you'll find mostly me and I'm serious.
Draikette is just like Draik (as in dragon) but a bit more feminine.

Posted by: Kitsune1494 Jun 7 2009, 03:09 PM

My name came from a group RPG story that me and my friends were taking turns writing. My chara was a fox Demon.

Well, the name "Alucard" came from the anime called Hellsing, and I decided to have the middle and last name to be "Van Hellsing" since it adds a nice touch of death. darkrai.gif

Hah!

Posted by: MetroidHunter26 Jun 7 2009, 10:19 PM

Well I got mine because Nintendo gave it to me for the Nsider forums and what a day that was lol. I just kept the name ever since. (I joined there around 2003 or so not sure)

Posted by: Jessu Jun 7 2009, 10:57 PM

Mine came from a friend I used to talk to quite a lot. She'd often scream DESU at me every few minutes, then she suddenly got the bright idea to fuse my name with it. xD I've been stuck with it ever since.

Posted by: Keshi Jun 8 2009, 12:24 PM

This is actually my childhood nickname, I used to go to a multi-culture school and the study of the Japanese language was required. My family has a deep Asian background, so I guess that's why that stuck. happy.gif

Metis is a roleplaying character a created. She's a lesser nightmare that was given sentience by being blasted by a psychic who was in a coma.

My username is not original, and its origin can be explained by "TWEWY", or by my avatar and sig for those who know what I'm talking about.

Posted by: Reika Ikorashi Jun 8 2009, 04:36 PM

Mine is my pen name, but for some reason, I think it makes a wierd username.

Posted by: Wishful Jirachi Jun 8 2009, 04:47 PM

Mine was just a pokemon I liked at the time and kept getting on the what pokemon are you quiz, and I just like the two word names so I took an element of jirachi.

I needed a user name for something a few years ago, and in my usual fashion was staring blankly at the screen going, "Uh... uuuuuh...." despite having known I'd need to come up with something. So I looked around and found an article on the uncanny valley effect on my desk, and used that.

There is a graph that measures human reaction to various things ranging from spiders, through puppies, to other humans. It plummets just before spiking back up to how we react to a normal human (on average) -- things like zombies, androids, cartoon villains with facial shading against the light, etc we react very poorly to because it's almost human, but not quite. Thus the 'uncanny valley'.

Posted by: Renji Tsukyomi Jun 10 2009, 12:19 AM

I've had many names, but my current one, I made up.

Posted by: MikiMin Jun 10 2009, 02:34 PM

I use it for everything. I wanted it to be just Miki, but that was taken when I first came up with it, so 'Min' got added to the end.

Posted by: Squid Jun 11 2009, 07:29 AM

It's simple. I love cephalopods. Squids are cute. <3

Posted by: Me0w Jun 11 2009, 12:14 PM

Well mine started longer. Many many years ago. Back before Invader Zim was cancelled on Nickelodeon. sealed.gif I used to be a part of a Invader Zim fanfiction fourm. Where we were each either a human, a robot, one of the irken elite.

I was InvaderMe0w! :] Then after years of using InvaderMe0w everywhere... GoPets, Kingdom of Loathing, PsyPets, Gaia Online, NeoPets, Subeta, XBox Live, WoW, Diablo 2, WarHammer. I ended up dropping the "Invader" part and it just became "Me0w" well I used that name in a lot of IRC servers too, and one had friends from real life in it, so they started calling me Me0w in school and stuff. Eventually it became a real life nick name and everyone called me Me0w.

When I went to college for radio, we had to pick "Dj names" for when we were on air on the college station. So naturally I picked Me0w. Now 2 years after that I'm still djing under the name of "Dj Me0w" for my internet radio work. The only time I dj under an actual name is if I'm doing am/fm. happy.gif

So if I'm at a site that lets me use 4 letters in my username I am Me0w otherwise I am InvaderMe0w

Posted by: MasterCharizard Jun 16 2009, 08:32 PM

It's a great song by +44, made up of travis Barker and Mark Hoppus from Blink 182)

Posted by: Tsukinaka Jun 17 2009, 03:21 AM

Tsukinaka literally means, Center of the Moon. grin.gif

It was given to me by my best bud who started this 'group' in school a few years back called the 'Tsuki & Co.', and she was a great fan of Japan's stuff so she self-taught herself the Language.

At first she called me Nakama, which means 'Company; Fellow; Colleague; Associate; Comrade; Mate; Group; Circle of friends; or Partner.' -From jisho.org.

Since then, I've been using it everywhere, on the Net to real life. My best bud calls me Naka now, short form of Nakama. cat.gif
