Reason Behind Your Username
I've always liked these topics, especially on big forums.

Well my username everywhere I go has been Axel, or Citan Uzuki. On one Fire Emblem forum that I went to, I signed up as Axel. It was fun, and I got to know everyone there. One time when I was on AIM, someone IM'd me and said he was the admin of the forum. I knew it was him since he put his screename in a topic, but I asked him to prove it anyway.

Well, the method he chose was tochange my name to Smelly Gopher. After that we had a nice chat, but I told him I was getting fond of the name, so he didn't change it back.

So when I came to this forum, I tried to sign up as Axel, but someone already took it:(. I was thinking of using Citan, but I've used it on so many that it got stale, so I went with Smelly Gopher.

What's the reason behind YOUR usernames?

Re: Reason Behind Your Username
lol, cute story!

Umm... My username (which is normally written Boötes) is a constellation. I always tend to sign up on sites with a constellation related name, mostly because I'm such a Black family fan girl. I chose the constellation Bootes because it's got mythological associations. Also, it isn't really fancy name like Velpecula or Lacerta, which suits me as I'm not a very fancy person.

Re: Reason Behind Your Username
Iv'e been using this one for a while, i thought it up when i was trying to think of a username for another site, and i was eating popcorn at the time, and i thought to myself "Mmmm this popcorn's yummy" hence the name Popcornzyum.

That was pretty stupid, but i like it now :p

And you can pretty much guarantee, that nobody else has already got this username too, another reason why i like it :D

Sussudio August 29th, 2007 4:38 pm

Re: Reason Behind Your Username
I'm absolutely useless at thinking up decent Usernames so I usually just try to think of something like a song, film title or whatever that would sound ok for a username *lol*

Sussudio is a song by Phil Collins and he's my favourite singer :)

Re: Reason Behind Your Username
Sirius was my favorite character when I made this account when I was ooohh... twelve.
I'm just too lazy to leave behind the childish name.

Hysteria August 30th, 2007 9:23 am

Re: Reason Behind Your Username
Well Muse are my favourite band and Hysteria is my favourite song by them so.. put the two together :p I also love 'hysteria' as a word alone. If you ever see "Hysteria" on a forum, chances are its me, or "death_in_vogue" :)

REMEMBERALL August 30th, 2007 11:05 am

Re: Reason Behind Your Username
I chose this name because it's easy to remember :lol:and I love Neville reminds me of him :)

Ginevra921 August 30th, 2007 12:21 pm

Re: Reason Behind Your Username
I love the names "Amalia" and "Ginevra". I chose Ginevra coz it's Ginny's name ! And I was born on the 21st of September... :)

Alcyone August 30th, 2007 1:33 pm

Re: Reason Behind Your Username
I wanted a cool Harry Potter-ish name so I went searching for constellations and Greek deities and I came across Alcyone (Al-sigh-o-nee), a greek goddess (a minor one) of peace, tranquility, and the ocean. It's also a plus that it rhymes with Hermione!

MrVengence August 30th, 2007 11:43 pm

Re: Reason Behind Your Username
Sympathy for Mr. Vengence is one of my favorite movies, and i couldn't really think of anything else.

Unfortunately no creative story behind mine. :no:

member_of_SPEW August 31st, 2007 1:02 am

Re: Reason Behind Your Username
I don't know; when I signed up on Mugglenet I was stumped, and I decided I wanted it to be Harry Potter -related and not have numbers. I decided on member_of_SPEW because I think I would join SPEW if I were at Hogwarts. And then when I joined here, I wanted to keep it the same. I was kind of surprised no one already had it, actually.

Sorafune September 1st, 2007 6:17 pm

Re: Reason Behind Your Username
Sorafune is my favorite song by the Japanese boyband TOKIO and the song was used as the theme song for the funniest Japansese drama series I've seen: My Boss My Hero XD

Re: Reason Behind Your Username
I love these types of threads, too, some of the stories are so entertaining.

Now, while I can't divulge the actual secrets of my name, as I'm sworn in secrecy to what it means, they do actually mean something. It's supposed to be that 8m=5, and 7w=6, two seperate things, but I'm not allowed to use equals sign, so I just combine it. They actually both mean two different people's names, but that's the part I can never tell. I promised a friend of mine, the only other person in the world who knows, that I'd never tell, and I haven't.

Hermi0nechik92 September 1st, 2007 11:21 pm

Re: Reason Behind Your Username
Um, mine isn't that creative... and beyond obvious! I am very very Hermione-ish, love schoolwork, also any gilmore girl fan would know me as a "Rory" but Rory has nothing to do with my nuttiest obsession!
I LOVE :love: harry Potter , like with a passion! I love the name Ginevra after Ginny, but i look quite a lot like Emma, so I went with Hermione, but hermione was taken, so i tried hermi0ne but that was taken, so i tried hermi0ne chik, still taken, so i added the year i was born; and well there you have it. pretty boring really!:err:
