    Default What was the inspiration for your username?

    I'm just really curious because so many of these user names are unique.

    I picked my name because Vibrava has been my favorite Pokemon. Vibrava is known for the supersonic waves it creates. I wanted an oxymoron name so I tacked "Silent" as an adjective and viola!

    What about you all?

    The "m" is for my name; Matthew. The "junior" is because I'm actually a Junior, and 3 is for how many Egyptian God Cards there are. Aren't I original?

    I fused my own name with pichu :P Voila best created name ever! xYachu. (It's a lie. I just accidently typed 'u' instead of 'i'. Wa planning just to use my own name.)

    Mine is not really that inspired at all. I just took my favorite color and favorite animal and stuck them together. Though it does refer to my two favorite Pokemon (Flareon and Piplup, if you couldn't already tell) somewhat.

    Wow, that is actually a very smart name, Silent_Vibrava!

    I don't even know why I came up with this name - I made it on a Sonic The Hedgehog forum at the beginning of the year, I had trouble thinking of a new username (at this point, I had a very long hiatus on forums) so I just came up with this. I guess 'Retro' comes from my love of retro games, and 'Chaos' must have came from either my love of the Sonic Adventure Boss, Chaos or it maybe just a random noun that I came up with.
    I then decided to add an X at the end to make it seem like a robot name, haha.

    I don't really know. KL is just a shorter version of my name (Kyle). I came up with KL when I was playing Star Wars Battlefront. I guess it just stuck. I added the "izcool" when I needed a username for an account on Rooster Teeth. I haven't used the account in a while, but I still use KLizcool. Sometimes I get called KLiz. Sometimes I go by KL.

    Well, Cass is one of my main nicknames (my real name is Cassidy), and 1999 is the year I was born in! So I combined both of those to get Cassafrass1999 (actually, I think the username was originally my mom's idea... I was little back then and I was getting a Webkinz password, so yeah... I have kept this username on every forum I go on ever since, and trust me: that is a lot!) X3

    Nightmare- My favorite Pokemon is Darkrai.
    Hybrid- I used to have a habit of thinking up hybrid pokemon, so far, only a Gallade/Banette hybrid is used for anything.

    Though one of my usernames for another website is EnigmaRiddle due to the words' association with confusion and being the names of two of my original characters.

    in terms of sound, supersonic refers to soundwaves that are beyond the human capabilities of hearing so it would be silent anyway

    mine is just a word that means null/void, and it is only 4 letters and easy to remember and unique to this forum so no one from other communities can identify me

    My original name, Toobworm...I just liked tubeworms. I really, really don't know why. But it all worked out, because I had a drawing of a tubeworm family(pod, colony, swarm?) on my binder, and my now best friend asked about it, and we then started talking about things..!

    'Finch.' is named after Darwin's Finches, and the fine line between man and beast and kind of a merging of nihilism and equality and meaningless meaning meaningfulness, which ironically only vaguely fits my world view, now that I think about it.. xD

    Comet was for the name of my dog and Starlight was the name of the book I was reading at the time XD

    My username was inspired by the pokémon Klinklang, as it is my favorite.
    Although I do wish to change it... I don't know how though.
    We all make mistakes, but the biggest one we can make is not learning from them.

    I had to come up with a name very quickly, because my mom helped sign me on (I was young, Mom didn't really like the idea of me signing on a site, but I was almost fourteen, so...). So I decided to be "creative" and "witty" by replacing the "C" with a "K" instead.

    It's stuck since (because "KP" rolls off the tongue"). I don't have the heart to change it.

    One day I almost drowned, so I decided to take inspiration from that and choose a nautical title for my username.

    Actually, that's not true. There isn't really a real reason to it.

    I picked psychic, since it's my favorite pokemon type, and psycho, since I prefer attack over defense and status conditions/stat changing. I don't know why I spell it as 1 word, though. Guess I thought it was a good idea at the time.

    I'm looking for a Serperior named Serpedera. It'll be at lvl 98 or above. If you happen to have such a pokemon please PM me.

    Mine is just what I use for everything.

    It was my nickname in highschool. I was always taller and stronger than my friends and one day at football practice I DECKED my best friend who was playing QB. He got up out of breath and said Jeez Thor take it easy.

    And ever since then I use that as my username for most things and it works well here cuz I love electric type pokemon.

    I was 12 and uninspired when I created this account.

    But it was mostly based on the Pokémon Starmie.

    As for other sites, "arandombattery" on Sporcle was from when I was listening to the Master of Puppets album by Metallica, and my GPX+ name "Dulce et Decorum Est" is inspired by a WWI poem by Wilfred Owen.
