Default Why did you pick your username?

I chose mine because, well, 'skittles' just sounded catchy. That's basically it.

I was much more obsessed with Fawful when I joined the SRB2MB than I am now...but at this point, I feel like that username is so heavily tied to my identity that I could never dream of being anything else. Besides, I still like Fawful...just no longer to an unhealthy extent. That is my username on just about every website where I actually get the chance to name myself...even "serious" sites like CollegeBoard.com.

Most of my accounts end with "Kirbyo", and that is because it was the first nick I used in a IRC room. Now about the Srb2 part is pretty obvious, especially if you look at my other accounts.

"Takashika" is my real name in Japanese. My classmate translated it, and now I'm not sure if it really is my name in Japanese, but it sounds better than my old name "NiteAngel" which sucked.

About 3 years ago, I was playing a server, during that time, I decided to name myself "Silver", during the netgame, I changed it to Sonic 2 in reaction to the other players name being just Sonic...after that I never really thought of changing it to something else even if I have other names now, sooo...yea that's how Sonic 2 came around to Srb2

One of my nick names was Bbop (Pronounced "Bee-bop.") and I was 8 when I made up the username, so why not add an 800? Every since I was eight I've been using my username throughout every account I own. (Note/Offtopic: I'm 13 now, suprised?)

Been using this name for about 5 or so years myself, but the 'element' I took it from has been around a lot longer than even that. When I actually wrote stories, I created this story element called the Project Dark Fox, essentially a genetic project to make the ultimate soldier, or better, MechWarrior. Of course, I made this up, a bipedal fox with lots of human traits, BEFORE I learned of the furry community.
With nothing better to take, I accepted this "vague" name.

I was getting bored one day and I started watching anime *thus started my anime frenzy.* I kept seeing the word Spirit and in Srb2 I can rail you from far distances. That started the Spirit Dragon series but now people just call me SD or Spirit.

My username is basically my name, C.E.N.Z (Carlos E. Nuñez Z.) And the "N" means "Nightmare" I took that from Megaman X6 (The Zero Nightmare).

Now for the the CtseFan (Chitose Fan), There is a Character In Fatal Frame 2 that's called Chitose Tachibana, I love Fighting her because she's adorable ...and Dangerous, So I became a Fan of her :D

The first message board I joined was made up primarily of fans of Planet Zebeth, which is a Metroid sprite comic. Having not yet settled on a name to use online, I wanted to pick something relevant to use. I took "Metroid Prime 2"(which hadn't been announced yet), changed it to "Prime 2.0" to make it more unique and catchy. In hindsight, the name was also ambiguous enough that it could be used pretty much anywhere without broadcasting myself as merely a Metroid fan who couldn't think up a name, which is why I kept it.

I don't care what you want Arf, I want to hear that story.

What's your real name? I can translate it for you o.o

Chose Ultimate because that was my name on youtube. Don't really like the name anymore. Sounds like I think I'm better than everyone. o.o"

Truth be told, I'm not entirely sure anymore. All I can remember is one day early on in high school I was experimenting with random fusions of nouns and verbs to see which combinations sounded somewhat cool. "Blacklightning" was the only decent one I got out of it, and it found ways to sneak into practically every other username I ever made since. I'm honestly surprised anyone has a backstory to their nickname any bigger than that, frankly.

I occasionally go under the name Jean Eric in some places where my usual username is taken. That's not actually my real name, more like a pen name crossed with a fanchar - I was trying to think up something generic at first, but at some point I actually used the word "generic" itself and twisted it into a play for words. That said, they're both pronounced similarly with the exception of the "Jean", and I was wondering if that thought crossed anyone's mind yet (at least, the few people here that already saw my gamertag anyway).

Oh, mine's pretty unspectacular. Google it and you'll find out. My name's also very cliched, but that's somewhat unintentional. I once made a hilariously stupid move and renamed myself to "Mahavishnu" on IRC, which led to a lot of funny reactions. Too bad I don't have the log.

Well, back when I was playing Warcraft 3 all those years ago, I forgot several usernames I had before, so I took my real name, swapped the J and the W around and made 'Wackjood'!

But, like the clumsy fool I am, I accidentally put in a h and as a result, created 'Whackjood' instead and I rather liked how that turned out, so, here I am today. With a name that turns out to have an anti-semetic meaning in another language I was never aware of until I met the Dutch.

Well, whack doesn't mean anything in Dutch, but jood means jew.

Anyway, my username was just made up at a random moment. It probably involved mixing 'spherical' and 'metallic' together. At least it's better than the name I previously used on forums... (3smile²)

I wanted to have a more intelligent username, so I choose Torgo. I thought it would be good for the srb2 message board because it would be original for the sonic community. Torgo is the "monster" in the movie "Manos the Hands Fate".
I would say that is pretty accurate. I wanted a unique username that I know no one else would take a similar name. Torgo isn't generic in the sonic world, so that is why I took it. If I signed up pretty much anywhere else on the internet, then it would be pretty generic.
