    I was going to say, "Who names their kid 'Zazie'??"

    But then I remembered that mine is Kreis.

    I probably would have went with Zoicyte, one of the villians from Sailor Moon. That was what I was going to go with for my username, but an alt account managed to swoop in and take it after the name change thread was closed.

    Not sure, probably French speaking people, since that's where the name appears to have originated. I changed my name so it would match my gender identity better, so I wasn't really born with it.

    Kreis isn't a bad name at all honestly. It's not common, but it sounds like an actual name and doesn't blatantly rhyme with something unpleasant.

    How is your name pronounced anyway? I always think "Cre-es" or "Cress" when I see it but I know they're wrong.

    It's pronounced the same as the name Chris.

    A long time ago I was obsessed with Phantom of the Opera, and over time my friends caught on and started calling me Phantom. I sort of kept it. Now my username anywhere I go is Phantom.

    Dragoniss is something that I've had since I was 13.

    It comes from the title of a painting that I did for art class in school. It was called "The Dragon and the Dragonis" It was of two dragons, one male and one female flying through the air. I had also done a lot of looking into dragons, at the time I was really big into them. I had quite the collection of dragon statues, sadly I had to sell them all due to moving a long ways and not having room for them. I was trying to think of a name for my first Gaia Online account and Dragonis came to mind. Sadly the name was taken so I just added an extra S at the end and the name has stuck for 7 years. I use it for basically everything, so in case I wanted people to know where I am they know who to look up.

    Though now I have begun to break that habit. I'm trying to come up with new names now. On some places, like my youtube, I've gone by The Antagonist Green, because Green is my favorite antagonist and I like to Role Play as his character. I've also just started using Cafemocha on Smogon/Showdown, because I like the paring and...Cafemocha just sounds delicious. Plus I wanted a name that sounds a bit more mature and doesn't have to be looked at in terms of Pokemon. While I see it as a Pokemon term, someone else that doesn't know about the paring or Pokemon in general won't know the difference.

    When Flipnote Hantena launched, I saw a flipnote for a type of shadow mew, and I kind of adopted the idea, revamped it and made it my OC of sorts, eventually I ended up calling myself Shadow Mew, and eventually I added super to it. And I decided to make an account on a website I can't remember and since SuperShadowMew was too long I made it supersmew.

    Saaatoshi!

    Well on Moshi Monsters, my first onlime game I played that had to choose a username from ANYTHING you like.
    I wanted my username to be perfect so I asked my bro how to spell television.
    He stopped half way through to talk to my sister and i heard that he said I and i wrote that down instead of the E. then he came back and told me the rest.
    So my username for that game was Telivisionhead
    On clubpenguin I wanted to use the same username but it had to space and will come out as Telivisionhe
    so I made it telivision.
    So my username is always telivisionhead or telivision
    I dont watch tv that much anyway.....

    No big story behind this one, I just thought "Poetry" sounded intriguing and mysterious at the time.

    I don't even like poetry.

    So basically, you are pretty much the only person on this forum who appreciates good songwriters.

    Hyperbole, but I find it hard to run into people who even know who Zevon is, "Werewolves of London" or not.

    My older username was Blany. I was asked by my elder brother to keep that username, so I did. Little did I know that this was all a prank played by him, as "Blany" means "stencils" in the Slovak language...

    My current username, AWildMew is obviously derived from "A wild Mew", as I LOVE Mew. No one loves Mew more than I do! 83



    I have officially claimed Mew (Pokemon), Poo (EarthBound) and EarthBound itself.

    At one point The Yogscast played a minecraft map and talked about a clone honeydew called Cloneydew. The 2000 was for fun, but coincidently was my birth year.

    A Sci fi Action Adventure series I've been writing for a few years now. The main character who's an alien comes from the planet that I call Zion. I've then replaced the I with a Y an used that as my username for everything on the Internet as well as when I play video games. There's even a few things that I've had to use Zion but it's mainly been Zyon.

    Somebody told me I said "Why hello there" a lot when greeting people, and I felt the shortened version was more appropriate for a username.

    When I was a sophomore or junior in high school, I was reading the school newspaper and I saw one of the writers was named "something Vernikova." I thought that it was a really cool name so I use it sometimes on the web. I generally don't change names from it unless the change is temporary.

    My name is actually based off of a character from Super Paper Mario. I've used the name for a while now (Xbox Live, other forums, etc.), so I'll probably end up changing it next time it's name changing season (I still don't know what I'll change it to though).
