What inspired you to create your username?

What inspired you to create/use your current name?
For me, I saw a YouTube Video with a person they kept calling 'Giga'. I liked it and I use whenever I can.

Re: What inspired you to create your username?

-My first username was something that you couldn't call "original." [The Ganondorf.]
-Then my username was changed into "Zelda Ninja." [I like Zelda, and ninjas. So, I merged them together.
-A lot of people were calling me "ZN" soon afterwords. Someone [I forget who] said that they were going to call me "Zien." [ZN sounds like Zien.] So, eventually, my username was changed to "Zien."
-I told Cody that he could change my username into what ever he wanted, so he did. First, he changed it to "Z.I.E.N" Then, Shiky told me that he wanted "Zelda Ninja" back. I told Cody, and so I was "Zelda Ninja" yet again. ...and thus, here I am now, as Zelda Ninja.

Re: What inspired you to create your username?

Original username was "Beh77".

Beh was created when I didn't want to lose a game of hangman and so made the word.

My birthday is July 7th or 7/7. (Slash taken away because it doesn't look cool.)

I took away the 77 because I dislike seeing numbers in usernames.

Re: What inspired you to create your username?

Warp is from one of my names on StarCraft, warper_darkmoon

the _ is also from my StarCraft names.

And Spark is from a character in a story I wrote back in the fourth grade.

Re: What inspired you to create your username?

Tacheon was a character of mine (both in the BA and in a book that I am currently writing), so I decided to use it as my original username, Tacheon Black. I then changed it to various different things, including TAB, Mr. Tabbles, and now Davy Jones, whose name I chose simply because there are few things in this universe as cool as Davy Jones.

TAB was your best username because it reminded me of that episode of Sarah Silverman.

Re: What inspired you to create your username?

Sunstar6 was my first username. It was a username from somewhere else and I was feeling uncreative. Also, I was 12.
I think... there was another username somewhere inbetween here, but do I remember? No.
Then Pyro Kitten. Because Fire is awesome and so are kittens.
And now, You Are By Far. beCAUSE it was the display name for one of my friends on MSN in one point in time. And. I liked it. Also I was bored the day I changed my username.
So, here I am.
I want to change it though... because The Boy is no longer my friend and most likely will continue to refuse to talk to me until the end of time. And it reminds me of him. WHICH IS BAD. I'd change it to Peekay, but the name's taken and I'm too lazy to ask a mod.
Yay.

I just kinda made it up.

Re: What inspired you to create your username?

Once upon a time, I knew a lady named prettypoison. Her username was unique, and she is intelligent to boot, so when I registered here, I wanted something that didn't normally fit together, but sounded nice anyways.

So, hence, I had brokenjoker. It was either that or violentsymphony. The latter is much to long though.

Re: What inspired you to create your username?

My original username (Puck) was created after the Shakespeare character of the same name. My Current username is the alternate name to Puck.(As is the name Hobgoblin, which is what i had originally planned my new username to be)

Re: What inspired you to create your username?

I named my username after what I had originally planned to be a goddess for my Zelda Fan Fic (when it was going to be an alternate universe), but then I decided to make it post WW, and used Din instead.

Re: What inspired you to create your username?

a few years ago I got onto a subway, not knowing that that day my life would change forever. While we were underground, about five minutes into my ride, the subway stopped. We lost power. No one was sure what had happened, but we knew it was bad. Someone headed to the front of the train, and came out and told us in a voice so trembling that the driver was dead--his head looked like had been bitten clean off, his neck snapped like a piece of beef jerky. Seeing that the radio had been destroyed, and that none of our cell phones worked there down underground, we decided to brave our way out in the tunnels, and try to find a way to the surface without being flattened.

A party of us struck out. One of us was a very frequent rider on the subway, and noticed that for some reason the driver of the train had been taking us in the wrong direction. these tunnels, he said, were constructed all wrong. The usual tunnels had been reconstructed ten years ago. This section of tunnels was supposedly abandoned. His explaination was interrupted by a group of mole men, who were presently surrounding out party. They were armed to the teeth, but we were taller and faster, so we were a match in hand-to-hand. There were some causalities, but we all fought valiantly.

That's how I got my nickname, Lly the Moleman Slayer. But I call myself just Lly here, because it's pithy.

Re: What inspired you to create your username?

My original user name was stupid. I pretend it never happened. This one was not very creative either. Fire is cool, and it burns stuff. Combustion is cool! And I love birds, so I put the two together and became Fire Bird.

Re: What inspired you to create your username?

Well, it relates to why I joined ZU. Sort of.

My name was inspired by a lack of inspiration, and frustration with a bad internet.


I was just looking at zelda things on the internet and I saw a picture that I wanted to comment on on this site called Zelda Universe. I noticed you had to be a member, or something, and I tried to regiester but it wouldn't work and kept freezing. So, I got very frustrated and came up with the first mediocure name that came into my head: DekuQueen

I really hate it, but people call me DQ anyway so... meh.
