Origin Of Usernames

There are some funky names out there, and I thought it'd be cool to make a thread about the history of them. This thread has probably already been made before, but I'm relatively new, so I probably missed it, and now that I control the forums I decided I deserve it.

So, I'll start. Spud is an awesome sounding word for potato, but of course, it's already used on every site. I USED to be called Spudxd6(the last three letters random button mashings), but I think Alpha(the first letter of the Greek alphabet, thus ALPHAbet(which is alpha-beta)) sounds cool. So, that's how everyone's favorite Spud came to be.
Your layout has been removed.
My name comes (obviously) from a Pokémon, one of my favourite Pokémons to be exact.
Nickyxplosion came from dethklok with nathan explosion but i changed the name in order for it to be my scene kid name xD its been original and no one has it :D
Toaster, Nickyxplosion, boozer, The Kid

I have many names :p
My username comes from the awesomeness that is myself.
One day on the IRC, it was somehow revealed that I'm actually Chen (a Touhou character) in real life.
fuck yeah meowingtons
The Eggs of Saear | #extreme | Spade's Gallery of Visual Arts | PM me | My YouTube channel | xkcd | Dinosaur Comics
What is this, the fourth one of these now?

My username is a number. I just think it looks cooler this way.
May we meet again outside the battlefield.
If you don't know where I got my current username from, then I will cut out your heart and feed it to the many Miley Cyrus fans out there.

My main username, Ladida, was just something I randomly came up with.
My username, SpikyRat is a reference to Sonic and the Secret Rings. To be exact, some characters call Sonic a "rat", and he's spiky, so meh.

... Earlier on I was just using random things that came to mind. (Well, except for goldensonic15, that was a reference to Super Sonic. Don't ask why I keep referencing Sonic. XD)
Good fucking bye.
Hell if I remember.
S.N.N., the abbreviation of So Not Normal, was pretty much a randomization of three words I thought up one evening in 2005. After people starting calling me S.N.N., I just stuck with that.

anonimato its an spanish word, the normal word its anonimo and the translation of that word its anonymous.
basically a random word that come from my head in the registration.
I do pixels sometimes
Tails was pretty much my favorite game character a few years back, and adding his super form onto it sounded even better, so I used that for the first site I registered on. From then on, it's something I've stuck with, though I'll tack a 61 to the end if Supertails is already taken.
total unoriginality ftw

Although, MEEP was a name I started using in relation to amospeak, a made up "language" on the IRC we use
Mine is George and Jorge put together with 3 random numbers at the end.

Jorge is my real name, and you pronounce it "George"Free counters!
Mine is close to my lastname, and I just added 0444 TO IT TO BE RANDOM.
Jack Levin is character from the F-Zero franchise and he is one of my favourite characters (besides Captain Falcon) and I decided to use this name.
Demonsul? Smushed it together one day. It's grown into a character all of it's own.
My usual username "Red Chameleon" is just something I thought of by using my favourite colour and creature together. =P

Although the one I'm currently using is not something original. Ran Yakumo's a character from the Touhou series (who first appeared in Perfect Cherry Blossom) and she's a kitsune. =3
Raibys...just like Lymia, Nhimor, and Aeiouna, and other Zoincailla characters I made, I usually create the names by just putting syllables together that sound both interesting and cool. Raibys is one of my oldest characters, (I made him almost 5 years ago!) and is basically the one who I can identify with the most. Therefore, he's basically become something of a representation of me.

I chose "icebox" because we have SMWC in a strange tradition of members whose name starts with "Ice", so I decided to get that wave.
