  1. Takeshii

    Takeshii Well-Known Member

    Came from Takeshi Kaneshiro. Used to just be Takeshi or Takeshi_K, but when it's taken you're forced to get more creative. :)
  2. Matamune

    Matamune Of the cats

    Shaman King. The background story of Matamune specifically as it was a moving piece of work.
  3. Tackoman657

    Tackoman657 Lampent is good.

    One day, I was thinking of a username. Then I realized that I liked tacos. Then I added a K to it and stuck on 657 at the end of it.
  4. zapto369

    zapto369 Because I'm Worth It

    I've been using the name Zapto369 since I was 12-13, but it comes from the pokemon, my favorite pokemon actually Zapdos and changed up a little bit to sound like a person. The numbers are all multiples of 3 to make a sort of numerical trinity and such. I probably sounded much cooler in my head originally, but now it's sort of a personal legend since I've been using the name for so long.
  5. SkyTheAbsol

    SkyTheAbsol Dark-Type Fanatic

    So a really REALLY long time ago, I was a member of a website called Supercheats. My username was Skymin or something along those lines, I thought it was creative at the time. After a while, people would just shorten that to Sky or Shay (Skymin = Sky-Shaymin, after all) and I took that and went with it.
    Despite having a Shaymin-centered username, though, I pretty much always had an avatar of Absol, my favorite Pokemon. So if not Sky or Shay, I'd occasionally be referred to by some friends as "That Absol Lady" - so, when I started making new accounts on places (like here or DeviantArt to name a few), SkyTheAbsol stuck.

    'Tis a silly name, perhaps, but it's my name now so meh.
  6. Grey Wind

    Grey Wind Only rescues maidens

    Grey Wind is one of the direwolves from ASOIAF. Love the series and it's usually not taken so I use it a lot now.
  7. Kansas_Rocks!

    Kansas_Rocks! Awesomeness Trainer

    I live in Kansas and I think it rocks. Also, the band Kansas does rock, so it has a double meaning.

    DiaRubyTandem The Fastest Comeback

    Brendan/Ruby my favorite trainer!!
  9. Dennis Jansen

    Dennis Jansen Pokémon Trainer

  13. Viviaren

    Viviaren Smug Snek

    My name just came from Vivid and Virizion, and I’m not actually sure were the ‘ren’ bit at the end came from. I guess I just liked the sound of it.
  14. Emperor Empoleon

    Emperor Empoleon Honor of Kalos

    Gen 4 was new back when I joined, and I was a massive fan of my latest starter at the time :3

  16. RedJirachi

    RedJirachi Veteran member

    I first discovered this site searching for information on Jirachi. I planned on being named that, but it was already taken. So I based my name on the shiny version of Jirachi, which had a red coloration
  17. Master Calem

    Master Calem Time traveler fool

    My name is made up as a mix of many things actually. Calem may seem like a common name but actually is like an anagram of the first letters in names of characters that really inspired me. Also, it is very meaningful in some ways....you could imagine how surprised I was when it could form the name Calem. Also master also means an anagram of other things. Since then, it has been my name in many forums/games/etc
  18. Well, I'm a bit scruffy, I'm kinda old, and I'm a wolf.

    Ok, no, but it was just random. I like wolves, so I thought about putting that in my username for once, and the rest just followed, and boom. Just like that.
  19. Morty05

    Morty05 Ghost-type trainer

    I like Morty and Ghost types... so that is my first part of name. As for 05 it is just habit of mine to put 05 in all my username.

    I named myself after my favorite little murderous ball of stitched up sunshine
