I always thought Chili was the coolest of the three brothers in Unova. I have two brothers and my older brother used to always have profile pictures of Cilan on here so when I joined, I chose Chili. My younger brother chose Cress.
First off, I think this is a great thread topic. I feel like usernames are an underrated expression of individuality, and it's really cool that, because this thread was made, people have had and will have the chance to share with everyone an example of their creativity that otherwise might not have been acknowledged. Too cool
That said, I came up with my username (which is pronounced KĪ-rin) when I was, honestly, just trying to think of a cool-sounding name, one that was unique and maybe a little otherworldly, like something out of Final Fantasy. It's pretty much what I've always done with Pokémon games, and I've been happy with it. I'm also a writer, and a couple of the names I've thought of in the past were recycled into names for my characters.
I like the DBZ series and Majin Buu is my favourite villain. Kid Buu to me more accurate. I also learned a couple of years ago, that ''booze'' is another term used to describe ''alcoholic beverages''. Since i like both these things, i decided to combine ''buu'' with ''booze''. That's how Buuz was born.
When I was deciding for my YouTube channel name, I was deciding what username that I was going to use. I knew that I didn't want to make it too Pokemony but I wanted to keep something similar. I originally went with LucarioWolf but I dropped the Lucario part due to the whole thing that I didn't want it to be too Pokemony. DaAura was a cool way of bending Lucario into it somehow make it still be Pokemonish but not making it obvious.
Once the option to change username happened during that small frame, I decided to switch from LucarioWolf to my YouTube username since I wanted the co-relation between the two be more connected.
Sir Spacebar is a basically the only name I use, anywhere I go.
I'm part german, so when I was coming up with a username, I went with something german. At the end I decided on Herr Leerzeichen (lit. Mr/Sir Spaces) Because 'Herr' and 'Leer' have the same vowel sound.
That name eventually evolved into Herr Leertaste (lit. Mr/Sir Spacebar)
After a long while (2 years), I decided to drop the german stuff and just use an english translation.
I still believe 'Sir Spacebar' is one of the most original and clever names I have ever come up with.
My favorite character in the anime is James (well I like Team Rocket in general). I liked him even more when he got a Mime Jr. (one of my favorite Pokémon). Thus, I decided to have both of them as my username
