Where did you get that username?

So, how did you come up with your username??

Well, I love Toon Link and when I beat my first Zelda game (Wind Waker XD) I had 989 rupees, so yeah.

Re: Where did you get that username?

I really felt the need to come up with a new one, so I thought maybe something to do with Zelda but with a slight twist would be pretty cool.
THEREFORE
The Temple of Lime was born!

Re: Where did you get that username?

It's a nickname. My friends gave it to me because I study Russian.

Re: Where did you get that username?

I was signing up for the Scifi channels boards and needed a name. I typed random things into it and somehow I came up with Unit7. Then a year later I was signing up for something else and I needed another username and Unit7 was again on the top of my head. Since then I have been using it for everything.

Its sorta funny though. I normally hate having any sort of number in my usernames. But Unit7 seems to be the only exception lol

Re: Where did you get that username?

I named one of my first World of Warcraft characters Jeezy, just because it sounds cool and because it sounds a bit like my real name. I couldn't come up with a decent username for ZU, that's why I decided to use it again.

A lot of people assume I like rap music because of it, but actually it's the contrary.

Re: Where did you get that username?

Fierce Deity was taken and this sounded pretty cool (My brother said it was stupid but I showed him ) and since then it has just become an identity... (ZU was the first website I EVER registered on...)

Re: Where did you get that username?

Well, before I had this username, I would use the same username for all websites I participated in, which was "InColdBloodXx."
Needless to say, it's quite embarrassing.
I came up with that name when I was 13 thinking it was edgy and cool, and just kept using it over and over because I was too lazy to come up with anything else.
Anyway, now that I'm 20, the embarrassment that came with that name was too much to take, so I came up with a new name to use online.
Valexi has a nice ring to it, plus it has my real name in there (Lexi), pluuus [size=1]it's the name of my fursona.[/size]
So, I just started using this name recently; and I changed all my old user accounts on other websites to this name as well (that was a tedious task, but at least I don't have to be embarrassed of my username anymore).

Re: Where did you get that username?

Well, originally my username was MindDrone, but since I have a certain fondness for Greek mythology, I studied all the lesser gods. I didn't want to use something so obvious as Zeus, Poseidon, or Hades, and I wanted a certain ominous feel to it. So I did some research and found out that Hypnos, god of sleep, had three main sons, Morpheus, Phantasmo, and Phobetor. I rathered enjoyed the fact that Phobetor was God of Nightmares, so I stuck with the name....

Re: Where did you get that username?

I've seen so many of these threads. o: Now I feel old.

Anyway, my original name in 2005 was "Sugaroxxx" (sugar rocks), which was also my name for several instant messenger clients at the time. Then, worrying that the three x's were sending out some kind of dirty porno vibe, I shortened it to "Sugar".

Then I decided that I didn't want the capital 'S', so I cast it out into the gutter like the dirty whore it was.

Think of an Ultimate Rupee. Now think of Ultima.

Now think of RupeeUltima. That's how I got it, but I don't remember the EXACT reason.

Re: Where did you get that username?

The "Zeruda" in my name means "Zelda" in Japanese. Then I just added "Miss" for no reason. I've been wanting to change my name to "Chiaroscuro" for a while, which is probably going to be the name of my manga that I'm developing (still. I've been working on it for months trying to make it complex ;_;. ) but it might change. Maybe I should change my username sometime soon.

Re: Where did you get that username?

My original name was Zeldoom which came about by asking some folks in a chatroom to help me find a username for this place. After a while though, i decided to use the name i always use on gamer boards: Florina. Florina is a character from Fire Emblem 7.
