Sorry if there's a thread for this in another place,or something.

So as the thread title says, explain your username. Why did you choose this as your username?If you have changed or plan to change your username you can explain that too.

As for me,I was making a report on Symbiosis before registering at PC,then I kept the username when joining here.

The origin of my username could have two different meanings: I enjoy things involving the sky and 'lands' is the opposite of the skies. It can also be in an abstract sense, like yin-yang.

LS

LS was the initials of my old username (not going to give it away to make me seem interesting) and I thought of something random and unique so I added the Door Mat to it.


Genius? Maybe. Logical? Not at all

Assaundrell Yumerai
11-17-2011, 04:46 AM
Well, the first name (Assaundrell) is related to Elven things while the second one (Yumerai) is a combination of Japanese words ''yume'' and ''mirai'' (yume is dream while mirai is future)

Jedi Knight Goen-Tog Etya
11-17-2011, 05:18 AM
I've been a Pokemon player and fan since the original Red and Blue came out in 95. That's when I was 15 yrs old. I've been a member of this forum since 2006.

Since 2005, my love of all things Star Wars really took off. I have been a member of Star Wars: The Old Republic forum since Dec 2009. I am eagerly awaiting the release of the MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic, for the PC, in Dec 20th of this year.

Because I'm a Star Wars fan, I originally called myself "Sith_Lord_Darth_Krushya", an evil "Dark Sided" character I created.

Since I'm a member of a family friendly Pokemon forum also where we support each other in all things Pokemon related, it seemed best to me to use the name of the heroic "Light Sided" version of my same character, a Jedi Knight named "Goen-Tog Etya." The name is totally made up and is a play on words for "goin' ta get ya." Read my signature.

I just figured if I was going to help people, wish them happy birthdays, and welcome them to the forum, it seemed conflicted to do it as a bad guy.

Nothing interesting, just my real name with an exclamation mark.

Shuckle + lulz = Shucklulz.

Nothing special. I just like Shuckle and thought the username was funny at the time.

Sheepat: Sheep + Meerkat.

I love both animals, and on Pokemon Black I didn't want to name myself my usual char name (Jake or Jakey, neither is my real name, I just like it at the time) so I named myself this random abomination, and it stuck.

Redlark
11-18-2011, 05:44 AM
I'm also a dreadfully old Pokemon geek. I've been a fan since the red blue and yellow days. My first Pokemon game was a Japanese yellow version, just before it got popular in the states XD... my mom's side is Japanese. My first english version was Blue--and in that game, for some reason or the other, I made up the name Redlark, because I thought it sounded cool. It just sort of stuck.

Now if you ever find person nicknamed Redlark, Elkspam, Ike, Baronholt, or Sensei_Pong on the internet--there's a good chance it's me, or me under guise.

It's the name of a Super Star Destroyer.

Frost Dragon
11-18-2011, 07:28 PM
My username used to be goldinum7. why? I don't remember. Frost Dragon on the other hand, was created because I hate all my other usernames, and I really REALLY like dragons and the cold, so the name just stuck. Ice dragon would be too typical, while frost isn't used as much. (until I googled myself and found out that RuneScape also has them)

Pokemon Elite 2000
11-18-2011, 09:15 PM
What can I say? I was stuck for a name. I looked at the top, typed I in w/out letters, and BAM. You get Pokemon Elite 2000. Btw, sorry if I'm breaching some sort of copyright.

It was the name I gave to a Ghost Type Eeveeloution I created. I liked the way it sounds, and how the pokemon looks, so I made it my username.

My first username was Seanrocks126 haha. I was like 14 at the time so I just put something in. Then I changed it to RoflTacos because it was my AIM username and people called me tacos anyways. Then I changed it to this because I liked how it sounded.

Giratina
11-21-2011, 03:59 PM
I went through an extensive list of 'adjective + Pokémon = username', examples being Shiny Zangoose and Ninja Ralts, but eventually I sniped this name -- and I pretty much can't change it past this, because it all has to do with an elaborate pun on the part of the fanfiction I write. That, and being called something other than Gira would be weird.

Temporal Diamond
11-22-2011, 06:08 AM
First I was known as Diamond1304, as I was also known on all other forums I'm on. But then lately I found the type of names with letters getting cliche so I decided to make a proper name that I would be proud of and be acknowledge without numbers that make me look like some prototype product. xD

Temporal Diamond is also the name of my blog. Because my favourite Pokemon version is Diamond and favourite legendary is Dialga, I decided to make a tribute to it. Temporal means time, if you didn't know that, and Dialga is known as the Temporal Pokemon(since he's the master of time). My birthstone also happens to be the diamond which is why its ever so fascinating to me and I like how a diamond's weakness is itself. It's just like how humans should try to defeat their worst enemy, which is themselves. I also like the diamond because I want to be strong like the diamond and not be put down by what life gives to me. Because time is precious as so is life, I strive to be the diamond that would never be affected by the fabric of time and space(In my blog, I like to refer myself as "the diamond of time"). :D

Gem N Ems

First off, I was Latias_Rider. I have no idea why I picked the name. I mean, I like Latias, but I was never addicted to them and I had many other Pokemon that I liked better. Then (after someone changed their name to Latios_Rider, grr) I decided to go with something different and became Lunar Latias. It was my AIM screen name at the time, and sounded awesome to me. Plus I got really attached to the name, and others would call me Lunar, or LR. I miss those days, actually.

Then I wanted something to do with my actual name, so it became Kumori Gem. Kumori meaning 'shadow' (who doesn't love Shadow the Hedgehog? 8D). But then I grew bored of that, and now I'm Gem N Ems. Think I'll stick with this one. The pun is funny, and I love it as my nickname. Kinda cute.

11-22-2011, 04:05 PM
Well,when I was thinking of a username for another forum,I spent all day playing Skyward Sword,but due to being scatter brained, I didn't make much progress.
And I decided to join PokeCommunity, but couldn't think of a username,and since I was thinking of Skyward Sword and I am very absent minded, I used Celestial that is the adjective of sky and daze to make this username.
But since PE2K don't allow spaces, (at least not to me :/) I just went with DAze,as it is simpler too.

Winter
12-04-2011, 06:49 AM
Originally when I joined here, I signed up as Riika-chan. At the time, Riika was the name of my very first Pokemon RP character, which was inspired by my random naming of my FireRed trainer Riika in need of something to call her. Eventually I got bored of Riika-chan and was reading a volume of Bleach. This particular volume featured the fight between Ichigo and Ikkaku, and when Ikkaku mentioned the name of his Zanpaku-to, they had it translated at the bottom of the speech bubble--the translation was Winter Cherry. I thought it out and, though Ikkaku is by far not one of my favorite characters in the series, I liked the sound of it and BAM! I became Winter_Cherry...

Though I tend to just go by Winter.

Ant2011
12-13-2011, 05:37 AM
Justification of my username? Why not. Ant2011 is my default wherever I go. Ant for the first 3 letters of my name, 2011 for the year I got out of highschool. Bear in mind I made the name back in '08, so I was lucky I passed senior year.

If my name change goes through I'll be known as Legion from now on. Legion is may favorite character from Mass Effect 2, and I feel like I connect with him, it. He's a geth (long story short, geth are viewed as evil robots) but he's not evil. Everyone has this opinion that they can't trust him... Plus he has over 1000 AI programs running his functions and such. That fits me and I have been diagnosed with Dissociative identity disorder, which is essentially multiple personalities, and I feel like each personality is a seperate AI working to make me who I am.

So.... yeah. Justification done.

Phantom0990
01-14-2012, 01:58 AM
Well on most forums I'm known as Phantom, but when Phantom is already taken I usually add the numbers at the end.

Phantom: I have always used it, to the point that my friends actually call me this in real life. I think it started because I used to be a huge fan of the musical "The Phantom of the Opera", but it was also my callsign for police work, so I guess it stuck.

09: Year I graduated high school.

90: Year I was born.

my username come from the element #79: Au: gold, i thought of making it silverwhynaut, but its hard to color something silver on the computer, so my avatar would just end up gray, so it had to be gold. the why part is a pun on the name of my favorite pokemon: wynaut, wynautz pronounce it like this : whaaaaaaaiiiiinnaaaaaaaaaaaauowwwwwt!!!!!!, so in the anime, they sound like they are saying why, so its kind of cute:biggrin:
