    My original username is just Yûn. But, given it's used by many people across the internet, I often had to change it for something else...

    Thus, I decided to add the name of my beloved Salamence I had on a RPG forum to it (also because the name of her Trainer was Yûn). Hence YunUroko :3
     
  2. xdreamcatcher

    xdreamcatcher Rising Star

    Really interesting idea for a thread!

    I wanted to register but didn't really had an idea for a name so I looked around in my room and saw my dreamcatcher. I also think the word sounds nice. And I added the "x" becaus I always do that on all my usernames.

    EspNeon Badge Collector

    Espeon's shiny sprite is neon green, so I just merged Espeon + Neon to make EspNeon
     
  6. Tuxlash

    Tuxlash Ba-doom-tish.

    My thought process:

    >Hit Register button
    >Got to think of a username but I want something new
    >Randomly remember a joke I participated in where you make an *original* character by mashing two existing ones together, à la Sonichu
    >Ended up with Tuxedo Slash, a combination of Sandslash and Tuxedo Mask
    >Tuxedo Slash
    >Tuxlash, sounds cool, might as well go with it

  8. Judge Mandolore Shepard

    Judge Mandolore Shepard Spectre Agent

    My username is inspired by three of my favorite video game series. The three series being Final Fantasy, Star Wars KotOR and Mass Effect. To be precise, the first part of my username is a reference to the Judge Magisters in Final Fantasy XII. As for the second part, well except for one letter difference, it is nearly a reference to one of the party members in Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II The Sith Lords. Now the last part of my user name, it is a reference to the player character of Mass Effect 1 through 3, Commander Shepard.
     
  9. BUG

    BUG insert joke so dated I don't even remember it

    My mom made my account for me when I was 12. Bug was her childhood nickname for me.
     
  10. Nyter

    Nyter Island Challenger

    Ny is from New York and the whole thing is a play from the word "Night"... I like night time more than day time so I am a "nighter" thus Nyter.
     
  11. Harmonie

    Harmonie ♫ Ad vivere

    My new username is NOT just an alternative spelling of "Harmony". It actually is a term used for ensembles of wind instruments around the 18th century. the username fits me perfectly because I love woodwind and brass instruments! I own a lot of them, and have played a number of them. I'm also going into Music History/Musicology.

    For me it was a mix between my first and last name smashed together. Once I got something that sounded close to a real word, I changed it to that word.

  18. lemoncatpower

    lemoncatpower Cynical optimist

    I had to pick a gamertag for xbox, when I played halo for the first time. Peppercat popped into my head immediately (no idea why, and this was a long time ago), and I love sour food so I picked lemons instead of pepper. Power because the t-shirt i was wearing at the same time had "POWER" written on the front lol.
