Khao is a super insanely long time evolution of my first name, and people actually call me that in real life, it's probably dethroning my first name as my real name, because of that,I use it everywhere since a very long time, the name is so full of awesomeness that even a mediocre rapper (I believe) stole it! Damn him!
I usually go by "Irgendein Typ", which is "Some Guy" in German. "Some Guy" of course being what I used before having a friend translate it. Most people would call me "Irgy" for short, so I just went with that when I registered.
I made up this word. It is a title given to any master of something. The continuation would be Granras, which is also made up word. It is the continuation in other things I use, but for the forums I just put Sye. So basically sye means Master and Granras was meant to mean highest frequency.
I myself preferred MegaByte, but Hexadecimal was also a really, really good villain.
I got my username from the TV show Space Ghost: Coast to Coast. In the episode Kentucky Nightmare, his show gets bought by a failing liquor store whose mascot is a shark, named Old Kentucky Shark.
My more regular username, Sailboat, actually derived from ZU itself. Way back when, I named myself Noob Saibot, after the coolest Mortal Kombat character. People kept misreading it as "Noob Sailboat," so I dropped the first part and just became Sailboat.
I should change back to that.

this isn't my usual username, but back in middle school on the nsider forums (anyone remember those? am i the only one? apparently they closed it in 2007...) i was gerudo_princess. my usual one, however, is missxgaia.
i guess it was made bc a) i LOVE LOVE LOVE gerudos and b) i'm a spoiled brat. XD

Did you know that "Panique" is "panic" in French?
Noooo not so super creative ;P
I figured it might be.
Also my SUPAH CREATIVE was actually sarcastic.
Other usernames I use elsewhere when Panique is taken are slightly more creative, but not really. I like Panique the best though, since half of my friends I see in real life call me Pani as a nickname.
Fun story: when I was in college last year, a large amount of friends I met that year didn't realise my real name wasn't Pani for a few weeks except this one guy and it took him about half a year to figure it out.
I was just trying to be creative and think up two words that were random but sounded good together, and I got this. It's so emo.
"I have a habit of falling in love with souls who have yet to be at peace with their bodies, their minds, their weaknesses. I try to build them, to find the parts of them that are missing in me.
I end up with holes in my chest."
My usual usernames are SheikahTao, LoneWolfTao or ShadowTao.
But lately I've been using ZoraTao, kind of replacing SheikahTao after I started to get bored with it. The Book of Tao is a religious book about a Chinese philosophy based on harmony and the yin-yang. (It's also my Internet name pseudonym)
Well, there I was broed with my old name. Then along come this dude called saul. He suggested Melpomene and I googled it. Had it ever since.
Go to saul for your names people!

Anyway, my name is a name I thought up when I was 16 to play Starcraft online. I really liked angels and mythology in general and Azrael is just a cool name (it's the name of the angel of death in the Abrahamic religions). However that was taken, so to make my name a tad more original I added Black to the end of it, 'cause black is all cool and evil.
It's been my online moniker ever since. I've been tossing up changing my user name to Saúl recently though. Maybe even Saúlito which is my family's nickname for me and Farore it seems.
Simply put, I created my current username because I needed something unique for my Xbox Live gamertag. At some point, I decided that the accented e looked better, and the resulting change in pronunciation was a welcome one.
As for my previous username (The Great Panda), it came about after watching one of the first episodes of Avatar that featured a giant panda spirit. As it was lumbering away, I randomly blurted the phrase "The Great Panda is done here," and it kind of stuck.
I recall wanting to change it to Panda the Great once, but I refrained from doing so because it sounded arrogant.
I have not changed my signature in going on two years now.
