So, why did you get your username? Was is because of a TV show, an inside joke, or something else?

I'll put mine in the next post since I want to link to it from my sig.

Gamabunta was first featured in Episode 1, the Fourth Hokage riding on his back.
Gamabunta (translating to King Toad), is the chief of all toads in the world, and is a personal summon of Naruto, Jiraiya, and the Fourth Hokage. Gamabunta can perform a combination transformation Jutsu with Naruto in order to transform into anything, including the 9-tailed Fox.

Gamabunta has many sons, including Gamakichi and Gamatatsu. He is a master of most water-style Jutsu, and can hold his own against a tailed demon. He is the second strongest of the three summons of the Sannin, only weaker than Manda.

Mine is from my Mystery Dungeon Team name. -_-
I feel like changing it but I can't think of a name so I'll just keep it for now.

Norman=A random last name I threw in, because the username "May" was already taken. :s

Thats a weird coincidence.

I chose mine beauce I like Harry Potter.

When I was mew159, I just picked randomly.

Callum
03-11-2007, 02:53 PM
I chose Callum because it's my name. Before I was Hoenn Callum, but I liked Hoenn back then. I hate Hoenn now, ;].

It was a joke I read your banner. It came to my mind after puppy dog.

Gaia
03-11-2007, 03:34 PM
Since I'm down to earth and is a scout quartermaster, I chose the name Gaia because [ Gaia = Mother Nature ].

I like it its has an earthy feeling. (no pun intended).

Pooka
03-11-2007, 05:46 PM
Well Pikachu was obviously taken so then I remembered that episode with the surfing Pikachu which I saw when I was about 8, his name was Pooka so that's where it came from.:wink:

Leman
03-11-2007, 05:56 PM
Well, seeing that my name is Leman, I chose that.

Blue-
03-11-2007, 06:02 PM
I chose Snowball Sunday because, it just came to me. :O It's pretty awesome though.

FireflyK
03-11-2007, 06:06 PM
Mine...
Eh. It was a toss up between going with my pen name (Well, ONE of them... I've got about 10 between all the places I write, before I got sick of it and started reusing those instead of making more) and an Alice in Wonderland reference.

I went with the Pen Name. ^_^ Downtherabbithole was just too long to type out a lot, so yeah.

Uh... Firefly came from a friend of mine nicknaming me Hotaru a few years ago, which translates to Firefly... And don't ask me where the K came from. My real name starts with a C but FireflyC looked weird, especially when I draw a firefly symbol instead of writing it out like I do sometimes, soo... Thus the random K.

:oops: Must admit it should really be DragonflyC, really.. The C from my name and the Dragonfly because, well, that's what my firefly drawings come out looking like! :P

And it was a name I used before that weird Firefly TV show came out, before anyone asks if I'm a fan. ^_^

Ridley
03-11-2007, 06:08 PM
My username = my absolute favorite videogame character.



Although I saw this lame person called "Master Ridley" with, obviously, zero posts.

plasmaball3000
03-11-2007, 06:19 PM
Hmm... I made mine up about eight years ago. I was really into disco lights and all that stuff, and I'd just gotten a plasma ball. It's 3000 just cause Yahoo didn't have an account called that.

Now I use Moriogawa, however, which is taken from the Japanese words for forest (mori) and river (ogawa).

Hoshika
03-11-2007, 07:20 PM
My nickname here is Hoshika because my character's name is Hoshika. =P

The parts in the name Hoshika (hoshi and -ka) mean star and flower or essence. Together, Hoshika means Essence of the Stars or Star Flower.

My nickname was REALLY supposed to be PichuPi. Why, you ask? Because I like Pichu. DUH!

~Falcon~
03-11-2007, 07:41 PM
I chose mine cause like lsu and im a kid XD, its self explanitory :P

earth_type_rule
03-11-2007, 08:11 PM
Well, I basicly like ground types, but instead of that, I made it earth.

c0rpsek1lla
03-11-2007, 08:34 PM
Mines cause I saw a videogame called Corpse Killer, and I tried it on runescape and it didn't work, so instead of an i I put a 1, and instead of an o I put a zero.

RouteMaster
03-11-2007, 08:43 PM
RouteMaster is a title my friends gave me when we were doing our Duke of Edinburgh Silver Award hike. No matter which way I turned I never seemed to get lost and successfully mastered the technique of reading a map upside down in the pouring rain. So they called me "the RouteMaster" because of my inability to end up lost, it seemed catchy so I used it here.

My previous name "hiker matt" was a no-brainer because I'm called Matthew and I enjoy hiking, plus hikers are my all time favourite in-game Pokemon characters.

Oh no, a lame idiot came to wreck the htread.

Makura
03-11-2007, 08:49 PM
Hmm... Makura came from the song, "Boku wa Kuma" (I am a Bear). I was listening to it, and I heard the words "Oyasumi, Makura-san!" so, I became curious and started looking around for translations of that phrase. When I found a translation for the full song, I found out that Makura-san was Mr. Pillow so, yeah... I'm "Pillow" if the lyrics that I read were translated right. xD

On AIM, my username is PillowKuma. Kuma means bear, so my name is PillowBear. xD I was thinking of taking that, but it was taken... T~T

I'm not even going to go into how I came up with my current name on MSNM. It's just far to long to describe. xD And it has Japanese in it. :3

[i'm gonna guess it was Rayquaza The Great.
Just a guess though.]

I don't know how I came up with mine. I think it was when I was watching the Pokemon episode when Pikachu was hooked up to a machine that amplified its cheeks when Ash walked on the wheel outside the cabin. It was after the battle with Brock, when Pikachu was severely injured. Sorry, hard to explain, as you can see...

I'll try to find the episode on serebii.

I had thought "Amplified Pikachu" just meant a powered up Pikachu, but I guess maybe not.

Elmo's Heaven!!
03-11-2007, 10:41 PM
I chose mine because Nazi Pikachu was taken.


But in a year, I'm gonna change it to Elmo FTW. It sounds cool.

Kenny_C.002
03-11-2007, 10:47 PM
I chose this username is because it is the only username in the universe and all other existent and nonexistent dimensions that is divisible by zero. :3

Kayla
03-12-2007, 12:40 AM
Kay is the name of one RP character of mine, so I started using it as my Internet name. That was taken so I lengthened it to Kayla.

Neptune
03-12-2007, 12:42 AM
Neptune is my favorite planet. It's also the ruling planet of Pisces, my zodiac sign.

Professor Geoffrey
03-12-2007, 12:49 AM
Because Absol was my second favorite Pokemon. Lapras was and still is my favorite, but, Absols-Darkness sounded better than Lapras's-Darkness. I don't like Absol that much now.

Draconic_Espeon
03-12-2007, 12:58 AM
My username is really a no-brainer. I like dragons, and I like Espeon, so I combined the two. =3

I was originally going to go with Phantom-SunsSong, but I opted for something more Pokemon related. As for Phantom-SunsSong, well, SunsSong is a character I used to roleplay with a lot, and Phantom comes from Danny Phantom, which is one of the few non-anime TC shows I watch.

hell rider
03-12-2007, 02:01 AM

My favorite meerkat on Meerkat Manor is Youssarian and that's how it came up...

Fire Pkmn Master
03-12-2007, 02:19 AM
I chose my name beacuse I love fire Pokemon, they are the best in my opinion and Im just a Master of Fire Pokemon. XD

Shady
03-12-2007, 04:43 AM
My username has always been my main characters name in the pokemon games.
So... Pokemon forum... I thought it was fitting. xD

It has absolutely nothing to do with Eminem, contrary to popular belief. xP

Meno
03-12-2007, 04:55 AM
Meno is a character in a Plato dialogue, in which the Meno and Socrates discuss the meaning of Virtue as a general concept, rather than in particular concepts.

So there...

Seawolf
03-12-2007, 05:04 AM
it's my surname (yes, i'm original as that)

It's pretty, though. I thought it was a word for something.

I used to have an old Sailor Moon fan character named Megumi. I also called my trainer in Emerald that, and one of the names I usually go by was taken when I signed up, so I went with that name. However, I have discovered that it also works as a strange nickname since 'Meg' is short for my real name, Meaghan, and 'umi' translates to 'ocean' in Japanese, so I suppose it's a weird pun as well, seeing as how I love anything related to the sea and all that.

I've thought about changing it to Orcinus (a username of mine somewhere else; it's also the genus name for the orca whale and means 'from hell') or Baleia, which is pretty to me and means 'whale' in Portuguese - I think.

Espeon EX
03-12-2007, 06:05 AM
I chose my username because I love espeons, really, well since espeon is take, let's add an EX so it's like a better version of espeon, a more powerful one. I think i'm never gonna change it...

xxxSakura
03-12-2007, 10:38 AM
Erm... Because I'm Sakura? Haha. And the 'xxx' is just basically for decoration xDDD However, I'll stuck myself to 'xxxSakura', and uses it on whatever forum I goes now <33

Shiny Loser
03-12-2007, 11:05 AM
i got my username because i am a loser.

maybe i grew out of it, but even if i did i can't change my username.

And the shiny part because i was into shinies at the time i made this acct.

Volcanflame
03-12-2007, 11:10 AM
Volcanflame ... just a random name I invented years ago. And I'm using it for my email accounts and almost everything! xD

-Volcan- --> Also for this xD

03-12-2007, 08:14 PM
My username is Team Oasis simply because my Pokémon Blue Mystery Dungeon's team name is Team Oasis.

03-13-2007, 08:34 PM
Well, for me it's because I like Eevees and Dark Pokemon, but if I would say "Dark Eevee" people would call me Umbreon. I was going to be Shadow Avatar, but someone suggested Shadow Eevee instead. My previous one was because I was completely Eevee obsesed.

Hanako Tabris
03-17-2007, 12:02 AM
The name came from the evil character in a Digimon fic that my brother was writing. The fic was never finished, so I decided to honor it in some way. "Hanako" is Japanese for "child of the flower", and "Tabris" is the name of the Angel of Free Will from Evangelion, the anime series.

I want to get the last name changed, but I can't decide what to change it to...

Well, I love the elements (Water, Dark, Ice, Fire), so I use one of those and then, one of my favorite movies is the new Phantom of the Opera. So I took Phantom and chose an element and combined them. Oh, and the 02 are my favorite two numbers together. My email accounts are darkphantom02 and icephantom02. My psypokes account is darkphantom02. My pokejourney (see sig) account is darkphantom02. So, I don't have much variety in my usernames.

Kat comes from my love of cats (it's hard not to love them when you have about twenty) but Cat sounded too simple so I chose Kat. Good thing I thing 'casue my friend got me into Meerkat Manor. :wink:

And 7 was chosen 'cause I was in the 7th grade at the time (now, I'm 8th).
