What's the inspiration behind your username?

I see a lot of interesting username's on here and I often want to ask where they got them from or what there inspiration was. So what is the inspiration for your username?

I got mine from the dubstep DJ's Nero link I love them so freakin much, it also means genius in Finnish. Though I only recently learnt that.

  • Mine is my username for my Pottermore account (randomly generated), but it's fairly new really... I'd changed my u/n a month or so ago from Ichierzen because my ex knew my name and would often read my questions/answers while we were dating, and I wanted my privacy back. And the source of that name was what I'd named my first trumpet about a decade ago.

  • When I was 19, and had my first car still (a black 1986 Camaro Z28), my friends and I came up with the idea of starting a car club. The idea was to paint all our cars the same color scheme (a variation of the black-with-red-stripe used on the A-Team van) and give our cars names that were more of designations than names. Had to be a word followed by a 2 digit number. Mine was Weapon 00. My friend Don's Monte Carlo SS was Riot 42, etc. I started using WeaponZero as my handle for everything after that.

  • Last name is Emanuel. Shorten it to Eman than add the Mr title. It also helps that when said really fast it sounds like you're saying "Mystery Man". It's genius, I know.

  • I saw the name a few years back on another site and thought it was pretty damn pithy. Thing is the name was myspace*bar*broke. I made the account at about 3AM and just typed "my" again. Guess that's what I get for trying to use someone else's material...

  • nice question, I use this name as my xbox live name and on a few other things but I'm starting to hate it because people are seeing an entire other word that I'm not to fond of. I came up with this years ago, I am an anime fan and a big one at that time and that's where I got the ANI and the KAJ are my initials

    Bleach is one of my favorites,

    i am a loner, I enjoy my solitude but I have had a real hard time finding people to socialize with

    in storyline there is this character called Coyote Stark, and he is lonely because he can not have friends because they can not be near him so he splits himself in two and from there on he is not alone

    so its just a fictional character that I just related to a lot

  • I choosed the name zickzack, because the name which I former want to have, were been already in use. So I took a name, where I was sure, that it was not in use such like zickzack or klippklapp.

    It `s possible, that I former enrolled here with my wish.names and I had forgotten it, because I am enrolled in some other forums.

    The name zickzack symbolize a lightning, which make the darkness very quick bright.

  • I have a stuffed animal that I named Bellybutton when I was younger. He sometimes attracted lint, so the name stuck.

  • nice question.

    I created mine randomly not thinking I'd be on the site long... But I like it and I've created its own meaning after a while, "zen" reminds me to stay laid back and down to earth about my answers, and the "queen" is for sort of motherly advice sometimes and I'm the mother f***ing queen. ahaha

  • well you know how some named like john sweeney, people can call them jsween or someone named like karen federov people call her kfed (well in my school this is extremely popular, calling students or teachers that ) so mine would be smik and smik sounded like a real word (maybe mystic or something) so it sounded like esmik and I kept thinking it was a really word although it isnt, and I've always thought the spelling of aaron is kinda unique, with the double a, I love double a names, so putting it together I got esmiksaaron

I think it was cheap though ending the last one with telling you letty was still alive. total cop out IMO

    • haha I know I was sitting in the theater like WTF!

  • Mine is loosely a derivation of my actual name. Loosely.

    However it became my nick name to the point where there are people who genuinely believe it's my real name (in some states). I have work name tags with it on it.

    Ps: <3 Nero
