Mine is from a Shonen Knife song I heard once, I could only remember the chorus so I kept singing it (much to the annoyance f my friend XD). I decided to use it for the name of a band for my media project because I thought it was cute then I decided it was so cute I'd use it myself =3
This is the song btw

I think my avatar pretty much says it all. It came about when I was playing SSBM. I just love the Climbers, and yes I play them. It's really just stuck after that.

My username is so weird, but I love it xD
Its pronounced Ree-Nu-Kee. It comes from the names Rin and Yuki which together mean "cold snow".
Rin is my favourite Vocaloid and Yuki was my first ever OC, I origionlly used the name for a fandubbing channel I had on youtube but it just stuck for cosplay.

Well, 'sei' is supposed to be 'spirit' or one of the Chinese constellations in Japanese. I recently discovered a huge love for astrology, and so yeah, used that. The 'bun' is from 'bunny', because I've been told I'm like a rabbit (despite being quite outgoing rather than skittish and shy). XD I don't know why. I love the username, though.

Well mine has a slight story,
I always looked for a unique username nobody would ever have, although with so many people in the world it was hard to do.
SO I took my favorite game type characters to figure something out. I decide I like wizards as a game style character, The idea of real magic intrigues me.
Then I thought what element would I use if I "were" a wizard myself and concluded that fire was my favorite.
I ended up with Wizard and Flame So tried Flamingwizard, That was taken I tried flamewizard again taken Then tried Wizardsflame again fail.
SO I thought long and hard and came up with "Flamewizo" Which never gets declined when I sign up to sites/ forums. It was ment to be lol so it stuck. I've had it now for practically 9-10 years now

mgg of my username is short for mexicanated gothic gangster, it came about about 8 years ago when i used to use a lot of mexican slang such as amigeo, gringo, holmes, kapassa etc etc, at the same time i was going through the goth phase everyone went through and i was also watching alot of gangster films.
the thunder part came about back in 2002 i was a big wrestling fan and was part of a small group that liked to wrestle every now and then, i created a character that was meant to be the pride of england aka thunder the name kinda stuck.
so there you have it, bobs your uncle, fannys your ant and joes your grandmother.

My name is Nicola. I got Music 2000 (for PS) which only allows three letters, so my sister suggested Nix. I then got mistaken for it being a guys name (another version of spelling Nick), so added it 'ie'
However, it became apparent that Nixie was quite prelevant on the net, so I added "the Pixie". Although it appears THAT is now being popular. Which annoys me cause it never use to be used at all. And I've had it for almost 9 years now.

My username is a reference to Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, since I'm a big fan of MGS. It's a type of snake that is a UMA ( Unidentified Mysterious Animal ) or cryptid, and one of the optional side-missions in the game is to try and catch one.

That quote is still amazing!
I do wonder how many people understand the reference, though xD
It would mean a lot if you could SO TOTALLY "LIKE" ME on Facebook! ^_^
My Cosplay plans change a lot! If they conflict with what I've written elsewhere, the most recent take preference.

My middle name is Cerys, and I like cats?
But no, that would be FAR too mature and normal... In actual fact, I did the whole 'I WANT TO BE INTERNET FAMOUS GUYS!' thing when I was younger (why?! Why did I think this would be cool!?), so spent AGES trying to think of a handle...
I didn't want it to be anything remotely Japanese sounding, and my favourite one I came up with was 'DoomKitty' (so goffick) but then it turned out that was an Emily Strange branded thing, so I just used my middle name instead...
And that is the terribly embarrassing secret behind my screen name.
The only good thing which has come of it, is that no one else in the bloody world uses it, so I've got the same handle for literally everything. Which, thinking about it, may not be so good after all...

There's a bit of a story to mine. =D
Basically when the BBC version of Robin Hood was on filming season 2, I did a bit of work with some of the cast. I was joking around with one or two of the other crew members and said that I wanted to kiss Allan a Dale.
The guy I was talking to laughed and said 'you'd be kissing Judas then.' After that every time the guys saw me they'd shout out 'Judas kisser'.
When I signed up on here, and had to think up a username all I could think of was KissingJudas because of that conversation =D

Mine actually started on a Roleplaying Forum. I had created four characters, two of them are names that I love. These are Dusk and Midnight.
When I created a Deviant Art Username, I wanted it to have something to do with one of my characters names in it. I chose Dusk because it fit in with what kind of username I wanted to create.
The 'atNight' part was just a random impulse that I put on. DuskatNight sounds quite mystical to me, because you can't have a Dusk at Night. If that makes sense. xD

My reason is so shameful, haha! It's derived from "Palletshipping", ie Ash x Gary from Pokémon. I needed a dA username and what I wanted originally was taken... I just went with this instead and it ended up sticking to me. I like to have the same username over certain sites - anything cosplay related has pltshp as my username 8D

I used to go by Isuzu (named after Rin from Fruits Basket) in various places on the web, then K-On came out n I became a fan of Azusa who goes by Azu-Nyan, so I did the lame fangirl thing of dropping the i and becoming SuzuNyan XD

My usual username, Tepshie, is just an anagram of Stephie (my name pffttt;; ). SO ORIGINAL IKR?
Alas, CosplayIsland for some reason was being a COMPLETE BITCH when I was trying to sign up to this site >8| I tried twice over with the username Tepshie and it didn't work, so I ended up going with SockFish... Which comes from a tagline I always have on my MSN screen name "Your fish ate my socks D8"... I can't even remember where this came from pffttt;;; Some cracked out 3am convo I imagine...
So there we have it 8D The terribly un-interesting story of my usernames!
YOUR FISH ATE MY SOCKS D:

I used to be very into the CATS (the musical) fandom and I loved Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer. When I was making a new account on deviantART, I wanted a username that related to those two that wasn't already taken. I know that people spell their names differently, but it just so happened that this spelling wasn't taken on dA... or anywhere. XD It's pretty much my alias on every internet site now.

My brother kind of gave me my name. When I was younger my brother said he thought Neji reminded him of me... Later on he said the Jet Li reminded him of me in Romeo Must Die. (His name is "Han" in the movie.)
Thus Han Hyuga. XD

when i was growing up, i always wanted tropical fish. by the time i was 10, i had read every book on the subject at my local library, and was about to buy my first aquarium. over the next 6 years i kept more and more fish. i was a member of a local aquarium club, and was winning awards for my displays and specimins. when i started college in 2002, i did drama, and everyone in the group had a nickname excet me. until one day, the teacher came in to find me reading a copy of "practical fishkeeping" magazine, and started to call me "Fishboy".
later that year, when i got into online forums and stuff, i was thinking of a screen name i could use, and was thinking along the "Fishboy" theme, when the name "Fishyfins" suddenly came to me, like a flash of lightening.... and thus was Fishyfins born
