What's in a name?

Post by ramenaddict22 on Sat Nov 02, 2013 3:08 pm

Hello everyone! I'm sure very little of us here actually use our real names, whether as a username or alias, so I was just wondering: how did you get your name?

For me, my username (ramenaddict22) was a result of a childhood of Naruto. 22 was just a random number I added because the first time I tried to create the user name ramenaddict, it was already taken. As for my alias (exe), it's in memory of the very first anime/manga I've ever watched/read: Rockman.EXE, or Megaman Battle Network as it is more popularly known.

I got my name from a character in a story I was writing a long time ago. He's actually a male character (aether -> angel -> got Aerlith from it), so I don't know if I can actually go back to that story and seriously write it anymore, haha. I used a longer and more feminine version (aerliyana) of the name for a while as a username, but it felt too long, so I went to the character's actual name, Aerlith, when I started covering/writing again.

Run-on sentences, what. xD

so in the end it was still an original name you made for yourself ;P
i was going to make something that was a mashup of words so that it'd be unique enough i wouldn't have to add numbers to it to use it a username, but i'm too bad with names...

Oh boy. My username has quite the history.

Except not really. See, there was one point in my life when I actually had a life and had friends and such. I was like, 7 at the time. This one friend of mine came over and was like, "Hey, let's download Maplestory on your computer so you can play with me!" And then I was all like, "K". So we downloaded Maplestory. I made an account. He helped me make my first character. He named my character for some reason. Legulus390r. I don't know how he came up with that but hey, I'm glad he did. That's how I decided to use Legulus , Legulus360, Legulus390r, etc. for my common usernames.

^Is that a Free! reference I see there?! Haha!

Shuuki is... well... It's the name I gave to an OC way, way back, and there's a long story that I never got around to writing down behind it. 

秋 is autumn, which I rather like; it's got a kind of romantic edge to it. It's usually red "aki," but there are tons of "Aki"s on YT. Also, I'm Chinese, so I decided to go with the on (Chinese) reading "shuu." 

記 is something like "chronicle." It's found in 日記 (diary - "day" + "記") and 記憶 (memory - "記" + "think/recall"). Kind of a tough kanji to explain. 

Also, it sounds kinda okay in Chinese too, which was important to me because my actual name sounds lame. .___.|||

Mine's really boring. I use the name sonic-nancy-fan on everything. I'm a fan of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, (not Sonic himself, everyone else, especially Shadow) and I am an avid reader of the Nancy Drew stories. Fan is self explanatory.XD I go by Joker because I am a huge fan of no Kuni no Alice and my favorite character is Joker~

@Shuuki: FREEEEEEEEE yessssss :DD
aah, you put so much effort into the meaning of your name! for a while, i was going to name myself kirin (like the mythical creature) for personal reasons, and then i realized the japanese and chinese way of writing is the same, i.e. very complex, so i held off on it xD

@Joker: yoooooooo usernames are never boring. it tells you so much about the person. when i first saw your alias i thought of batman's joker haha

muabbe was derived from the name of the haircut i currently sport + a nickname given to me by a former friend + a few letters from my last name.

i'm mostly pleased by the fact that it sounds nice and is easy to type and pronounce.

My Japanese friend's mother couldn't pronounce my name properly and it came out as Kimoi. It was really funny, because little did she know I really am a kimoi(disgusting/creepy) person.

@muabbe: i've seen a lot of people make up their names like that, as in a random mishmash of words, but i've never seem to be able to do it and make something unique :'D

@kimoi: LOLOLOL. did she know what she was calling you, since she's japanese? xD

My name comes from the time I was around 10 or so, and I didn't have a proper nickname, I just went by my embarassing YT username (I have deleted the account already thank god) and I wanted to something simple and easy people would recognize me from. Anyway, one day I was watching videos and stumbled across a video of a dog. The dog's name was pretty long, but it had the word 'taifuu' in it and I liked it. So I took it. But I was first a bit worried about stealing a dog's name, and since the dog was Japanese, I looked up the word 'taifuu' and found out it actually means something, and I kept it and thought if anyone would accuse me of stealing their dog's name, I could say I found the world by myself lol. And since then, I've been Taifuu.

TL;DR: I took my name from a dog. Yes.

I got my name from a comic i made when i was six. i called it Job and Nob and it was about two stick people in different enviroments doing stupid things. I was young and it thought people kicking eachother in the face was funny. then i saw this name on foopets that looked cool to me. i think it went irul3 or something like that. then job and nob came accross my mind then ikikurface was born. though i used Sad puppy before that and i dont use it anymore.
the name made me sound emo or something. =w="

How I got my name, huh? ewe WELL! One day... I was walking around my house... and I fell... face first into my piano, and the keys that came in contact with my faces were all low keys... 

NAH! Jaykay! I don't even have a piano in my house, nor do I know how to play one o3o

Here's the real story! So, my dad first wanted to name me Lolli; Lolli as in loli and not lollipop X33 And before the name Lokki, I went by a name with double K's. So, I switch out the 2 L's in Lolli and replaced it with 2 K's AND WHABAM! Lokki owo

... I'm an idiot... FISH :D

Post by Kumoshi on Wed Dec 25, 2013 4:12 pm

@Lokki: If I had to guess I would've thought it was a reference to the character Loki from the Marvel comics xD


Kaisoumizu was actually a name I came up with for my blog back in my weeaboo days xD I used some English-Japanese dictionary online to find the words for "reflection" and "water" and slapped them together. (thinking back on it, it's pretty silly since I should've at least double-checked with multiple sources to make sure "kaisou" actually meant reflection. I know for sure mizu is the correct romanization of water, though, so at least it's half right xD)

As for Kumoshi, that came later when I was thinking about what to use as a singing alias. One of the characters in my Chinese name is 云, the character for cloud, so I just took the Japanese pronunciation of it ("kumo") and added 子 (has multiple readings, but apparently "shi" is one of them and I think Kumoshi looks better than Kumoko). So there you have it. xD
