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
