    How did you get your username?

    I was wonder how everyone picked his/her username. There's a lot of unique names here and I'm curious how you decided on yours.

    My username is a nickname my friends gave me my first year of college. A lot of people mispronounce my last name, which amused a lot of people. She thought it would be fun to combine the first initial of my name with the mispronunciation of my last name; hence snoogen (pronounced sa-nugent). The 0120 is just a reference to my birthday.

    Re: How did you get your username?

    I was trying to think of a generic username Icould easily remember that would not give away ro much about myself. and since I have at the time recently seen Kill Bill 1&2, I picked the name of the protagonist.

    I like dragons. And that was a time when I was still into Pokemon But I didn't want to use the real name, so I added the 'z', which sounds prettier.

    I've been using this since 2000. XD

    Well, my username weiss-raine is a combination of two. weiss means white and I like the way it sounded so I picked that. raine came from my crush's name and I added an e to make it sound more feminine. After that I combined the two so that's about it I guess.

    Re: How did you get your username?

    Goodness I have been using this name for years....to the point I can not even really remember where I picked it up. o_O

    I know that it is the title of an Edgar Allen Poe poem and that it was the name of a Turkish warlord (who was very brutal).

    If someone asks me where the name is from I normally point them in the direction of the poem....but to be very honest I did not read the poem until 2 years ago and I have been using the name long before that.

    ....it just always has sounded right to me to be using it. ^_______^

    Sounds like a streetname in london where they had lots of S&M basements, eh, are you sure it's so you-ish? (j/k)

    My username... has been with me for a few years now, Khaludh is the original form, i first used it as the name for my Tomb Prince ( egyptian skeleton lord from the warhammer tabletop miniature battle game - full name: Khaludh III, son of Sekhmett, of Lybaras ), and i later used it as the name of a medieval prince from a country inspired on germany ( named Leitz ) in a story i was writing... When i first got here i had my name as Khaludh, but shortly afterwards i changed it to just "Khal", because everyone kept typoing it... ;____; But now i'm back at my roots

    Re: How did you get your username?

    uhhh.... i won't write the whole history here... it got from 'bigearthdragon88' over 'dragon_on_fire' to 'ttxdragon'


    as you can see, all have dragon in it... i love dragons - asian dragons to be more precise, i can't stand the european/celtic versions.
    what's more, my chinese zodiac is a earthdragon.
    the 'ttx' means tetrodotoxin - a very potent poison. the blowfish is the most widely known animal that contains it, i think.
    yeah, so, i love the poisons name and sound and dragons.
    so, i combined it...
    the reason for the namechanges were in-game things from some games... until i got stuck with 'ttxdragon' and 'ttx' to abbreviate it, if there is a very low char-limit...

    nothing spectacular huh?

    Re: How did you get your username?

    when i was 13, i was the only person in my family who was good with maps, and we were moving back across the country for the second time (2000+ miles) and i was relaying instructions to them with a walkie talkie. because of this, they started calling me "rabbit" as my favorite movie was Twister, and the guy with the maps was named rabbit. about a year after that, my girlfriend started calling me Rabbi. that lasted for about a week. we then droped the i, and Rabbs been my sn since i was 14.

    Hm, let's see. Well, I love Kakashi, and I could see myself married to him, and LadyHatake would be one (formal) way to address the wife of Kakashi, and it sounded cute, so I decided to use it ^^

    I'm back :3

    Well this is the story, all 'bout how
    My life got turned upside down...



    (Not really. <.<)

    My usual online handle is/was Herminator (real name Herman, so it's a pun, not just a random typo of "Terminator"), but decided to have it shortened for practical reasons.

    Re: How did you get your username?

    It's obvious that i'm a fan of Ichimaru Gin. I added the tonic part cause when i was in my second year of high school, Oasis (one of my favourite band) made their debut album with their single Supersonic. They mention gin & tonic somewhere in the song and i just happened to be listening to it while i was registering here.
