Stingrays are hands down my favorite animal of all time.

Corvette Stingray is my dream car (1960’s model).

“Ray” is part of my real name.

  • Really it is an ode to creativity. I picture myself as being able to do lots of wonderful things much like the polymath did in his heyday. It is really an Internet alias.
    Yes we’re all waiting for your reasons for choosing ‘stingray’ in your update. I’ve not seen any caustic criticism from you yet so it couldn’t be that you sting like a, well, stingray!!!

    • 😂 too much Cranberries.

      That’s a common way of speaking using all sorts of wonderful literary devices. Usually the best way to have people scratching their heads too.

    • Thanks for the most honest opinion. Hope it inspires you ‘create’ cool usernames🌷

  • Inmensus is in Latin. It means immesurable, infinite, no limits. I've always liked the chaos theory and the parallel universes/multiverse theory. That's what we are, infinite.

    • I honestly don’t know about all this. I just enjoy the conversations and interactions with people. I’ve been wondering where all of these magical points are going that I have accumulated.

  • It's a portmanteau of my birth name and my favorite writer's surname.

    • Portmanteau! I haven’t heard that word in a while. It’s lovely in itself.

    • Thanks! I'm not really sure it would be correct to use for a given name, but it seemed quite appropriate to me.

  • I tend to prefer base names, with no miscellaneous characters, because I like my "avatar" to sound context-appropriate and also to not look like it was just thrown together or taken out of random name generator. Even when I have the opportunity to make a goofy-sounding name that can be changed at any time, because there's no presumption of "serious" discussion (although I still prefer that to pointless meandering), I prefer my username to look "deliberate".

    If you look at the average person's computer's file system, they'll probably have folders with names like "Random A** Shit" or "Stuff". But, for me, it is almost compulsory that my file names be archetypal and template-like... and so my username choice is of a similar quality.

    • That’s interesting! Sometimes I put my password to something like “Bills and shit” just because it gives me a laugh.

  • My username was originally Aenetone. The name came to me in a dream, the day before I created my original gag account. But I said some really stupid things, felt ashamed, and deleted my account. Then I created a new account, under the name Aenetoo. Becuz I'm Aenet, too.
    Don't know what it means, but at least its original.

    • Kinda wish I could get my old username back. But, alas, alack, it's impossible.

  • It means exterminator in Latin, which isn’t hard to figure out, but I was looking for death angel in Latin as the picture in my profile is a painting of the death angel from the Exodus story in the Bible. Unfortunately there is no real food Latin translation for death angel as far as I can discern.

    The painting was created by Evelyn De Morgan after WW 1 and is the most intense piece of art work I’ve ever seen. Equally morbid as it is beautiful.

  • Mikey Ramone is my stage name. Full name is Mikey Jones Ramone Østergård. Mikey is the pet namesake for Michael as I love Michael Jackson when I was a kid; Jones is the surname of the legendary Rolling Stones multi-instrumentalist Brian Jones, Ramone is from the Ramones - a New York punk rock band in the 70s and they have been also my main influence since 2010; and last but not least - Østergård is a random Danish name as I really love Denmark the country, the culture and everything about it. I wanna move there to live in the future for the rest of my life. So basically my stage name is a huge combination. LOL

  • my username started long ago when i was into playing MMORPGs on computer. "Squishy" in gaming terms means a character, and/or a class/job, with low hp and defense, will usually die within 3 to 5 hits from enemies. during that time i mostly played as a healer or a class that debuffs people to make them weak and slow so the rest of my team can rush in to rape them, a lot of times people see me and they want to kill me badly because of my name, i would purposely lure them back to where my team is, then cast a slow on them and my team rushes out to kill them and people hated me in pvp fights because i always screw them over.

    but yeah, ever since then i have kept using my current username for like more than 10 years, for games, forums, and etc.

  • Mhhh, alien because I sometimes feel isolated and tend to think I'm a weirdo not from this planet. Parasite because I sometimes feel my thoughts could be misunderstood and could create antipathy and therefore some people could think someone like me is detrimental for society. That's how I thought this nickname was for me. However I also thought robotic nicknames, as many people tell me I'm like a computer.

  • I have been known as Cake, Cakes, and variations of such since I was a small child. Mlle is short for Mademoiselle.

    It comes from how my father used to play "Patty Cakes" with me as a baby. Since my name is Caitlin, he called it "CaitiCakes" - and that nick name has stuck for a loooooooong time. When I was 19 and creating my first online screen name it popped in my head.
