Thought this would be something fun to do.

This name kinda came from my real name (beginning with E) and my favourite colour (Yellow)

How about you guys? smilie

I was much more into Doctor Who back then, and I wanted something to include my name, so there you go, my username.

All my usernames for basically everything nowadays is "M1chael5007"

Short story: Me being stupid.
Long story: I thought Bifrost meant something to do with cold. I was really info OC research at the time and my main(still is) one is an ice dragon. So "cold thing" it was.
Would probably rename myself to Frazil or Thundersnow or something at the time I found out, but eh, used to it now, still rolls off the tongue.

This was my third account, but was made shortly after my second so it could be an alt.
I was still a Homestuck then, and I liked Dave Strider, so StriderSwag was born.

I was on a Hotdog craze back during Skylanders Giants. I wanted something unique that related to Hotdog and I thought HeyitsHotDog was a good one. I went with it. Most people seem to enjoy it too.

@Bifrost Yeah, that's the kind of thing I would do.

@Strider Swag I always thought multiple accounts could get you banned! I feel so stupid now! smilie

@HeyitsHotDog I remember when you first joined back in 2012! I've always liked your username! smilie

Multiple accounts are allowed since you can't change your username. However, multiple active accounts used to bypass bans or pretend to be someone else in an attempt to troll are banned. If a new account is made, it is asked that the original one be abandoned forever.

As for me.... Back in 8th grade when I was super weeaboo trash but not as bad as I am now, I wanted to write a DNAngel fanfic with a self-insert character. I felt it best this self-insert have a Japanese name and stole the name "Seiki Tanaka" from the credits to DNAngel. Since then, the name and character have evolved to the point the character isn't as much me in terms of personality anymore and the name has also become a sort of alias for me. I use the name almost everywhere to the point that if you see it as a username on any site, odds are it is probably me.

I have used it so much, it might as well be just as much my name as my real legal name is.

LevanJess Emerald Sparx Gems: 3516
#13 Posted: 00:56:54 24/03/2016
"Levan" is a name that an old online friend came up with when I asked the chat to come up with a new username for me because my old one had Glaceon in it (after the Pokemon of course), so some people didn't take me seriously. I wanted a name that was neutral and didn't have any fandom mention in it. So he just randomly came up with "Levan" somehow and I liked it since it sounds unique... And Jess is my real nickname so I figured I'd mash them.

I would probably change it to SweetToothSuzy if I could though, after the badass Face Off creation that I think is so cool... I also go by DickGritty based off of another badass Face Off creation... Aaand I go by SaucedScientist (a reference to Rick and Morty), Fanceyo (a typo I once made of "dance you"), LJFoof (LJ being the initials of my LevanJess username and "Foof" being a dumb word that xat.com would sometimes end your default username in, and it always made me laugh when I visited xat when I was in elementary school), and Oshawoot, a typo of Oshawott.

I have a lot of usernames...

Okay, thanks for the heads-up! smilie

Anyway, seems like a lot of people focus their username on something from their favourite fandom. Awesome! If I was making a new account now, it would probably have something to do with The Lion King, hehe smilie

#23 Posted: 19:03:08 24/03/2016
I have explained the origins of my username on multiple different occasions but hey, does it hurt to do it again?

Well, I am self-entitled amateur musician. I have played guitar for 14 years and since I started I have enjoyed creating music as well. Well, after I already had finished one “album” which was the first I managed to create. I immediately started another project. Well as unimaginative git as I am, I couldn’t come up with proper name to the project so I titled it Project Unnamed. And suddenly it struck a chord (hehe…) in me and it has become some sort of phenomenon in my own creative life.

And I like the username I have. It is quite fitting, since username should be something you are recognized by and therefore it should reflect at some level your own self even though internet has tremendous gift of anonymity

I wanted to my username to be "parisrules12" As I loved Paris and I was turning 12 that year.

But I changed to what I thought was "parisrulez12" but I apparently made a stupid typo. If I got the chance to fix it, I'd probably just be "ParisRulez"

TTD Hunter Gems: 6328
#28 Posted: 17:11:34 25/03/2016
I used to be quite into bakugan so I decided to create a YouTube channel. One of the main characters on that show was called 'Drago' and his species was 'titanium dragonoid', so I decided to combine the two and came up with 'titanium Drago'. Unfortunately, that username was taken and YouTube suggested 'thetitaniundrago' so I took that. I tried using 'thetitaniumdrago' for darkspyro but it was too long so I used TTD - T (the), T (titanium), D (drago).
RainbowSkygirl Gold Sparx Gems: 2023
#29 Posted: 18:19:04 25/03/2016
My Google+ name, with 'the' removed due to length limit. Partly because it makes identification across sites easier, and partly because I'm not creative enough to think of something else.

#33 Posted: 02:45:15 27/03/2016
I was a dumb 11 year old kid who wanted to be "lol random and funny smilie"

The name has grown on me since then, but I've always wanted to change it to "PancakeSparx" or something professional like that since I originally made the username when I was really young. Or at the very, VERY least correct that damn misspell in "pankake"

I wouldn't change my name, but if for whatever reason I was told I couldn't be CAV anymore I'd probably go with Nomein, which is the handle I use for music and games nowadays.
StevemacQ Platinum Sparx Gems: 6533
#35 Posted: 00:43:08 28/03/2016
StevemacQ or Steve Mac Qwark, an alias used by Captain Qwark in the first two Ratchet & Clank games. The name itself is a lot like my first name Stephen. Another reason is because Captain Qwark is my favourite character in the games. I love Qwark because of my love for the Ultimate Fake Hero archetype along with Simon Belmont (Captain N), Zapp Brannigan (Futurama), etc. in which they try to show off how heroic they are but they aren't and it's played for comedy. Snow from FFXIII could've been this too if it wasn't taken as seriously as it was in the game.

Anyway, that's how I got my username, which is pretty memorable if you ask me.

Dragon: Much love for dragons.
8: VespidEndymion8

YESSS! smilie

I have had new usernames over the years to not be so monotone on the internet, "Vespi" has been replaced by the new names, since the "Dragon" & "8" are what give my brand, so these are left as they are. For short username, use the first normal / modified & the last, the "Dragon" is not included. And as code of initials: VD8, included with others too.
