What was the inspiration for your username?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous Discussion' started by Silent_Vibrava, Jul 13, 2013.

  1. The Hermit

    The Hermit Lone Operator

    The Hermit came about because it was the nickname of one my most favorite anime characters from History's Strongest Disciple.

    The name sorta grew on me because I felt it was a reflection of myself as I am now. Someone in solitude and isolation.
     
  2. pokemon special

    pokemon special No Angel

    You'd probably expect me to say the Pokemon Special manga, but it's actually based off this game I'd play with my little brother when I was a kid. We'd both pretend we were pokemon trainers and we were going on an adventure. I have no idea why we called it pokemon special (we had no idea about the manga at that point, not using the internet) but it was important to me when I made this account (which was quite a while ago, lol).
     
  3. Steamcraft

    Steamcraft Lazy Time Traveler

    That's super awesome, pokemon special! My sister and I played trainers, too; we were each other's companion yet also rivals.


    Steamcraft is split from Steampunk/Witchcraft~ The 'craft' usually leaves people guessing. :]
     
  4. LeafeonTheVoid

    LeafeonTheVoid New changes

    I always had an odd feeling since R/B/Y there should've been a grass type Eeveeloution, and ever since Leafeon was revealed, it has been my top favorite Pokemon ever since.

    The Void stems from a couple things: My love of Astrology and space, and a dark point in my personal life.
     
  5. JingIeBeIls

    JingIeBeIls 1+1=5

    I came up with it as YouTube username back in the time that Google+ didn't exist (I also don't have a Google+ profile)
    No idea why I wrote it as jingiebeils though, it's probably a bit confusing.
    I think I was gonna make the username jingiebeiis like the user heiisbeiis (Which is also kinda the inspiration behind my username) but that username was already taken.

    But I like my username that way, I still want to keep it like that and be one of the YouTube users that it still known by their username and not by their full name because of Google+

    I also used it on this site because I wanted to.
    lol

  9. HM02gon

    HM02gon Waiting...

    I was mentally going through a list of my favorites, and then a terribly sarcastic pun came into my brain. I also get my inspiration from jokes like "Got TM87?(i think that's it)"
    I'm surprised nobody has this yet.

  18. Shadow Aura

    Shadow Aura Well-Known Member

    Inspired by the two spin-off games on the Gamecube - Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness.

    The whole concept of Shadow Pokémon was very cool to me when it came out. So I dedicated my username to that concept.
     
  19. Aon_Epiphany

    Aon_Epiphany Dreams and Wishes

    "AON" are actually just my initials
    "Epiphany" was a nickname I was given in middle school by select friends. Something to do with them talking about how I was someone they could go to when they felt confused and I helped them see things from another perspective. One of my girl friends...er...female companions...whatever...said something jokingly about me being "her little epiphany" and it just kinda stuck within my inner circle of close friends since. I guess using it here is just a little nod to them.
     
  20. I study a lot of folklore and religion in my spare time, and I especially like reading about witches and their incarnations across all cultures. Baba Yaga is one of my favorites because she has such a multi-faceted character as far as witches go. She's been known to either hinder or aid those who encounter her, and she doesn't fall into a lot of the tropes that witches in many cultures fall into, like their supernatural powers being reduced to their sexuality.
