    Wrong, I was Team Marie.
    Using it on an alt sounds like a good idea!

    Sounds like a name inspired from an anime.

    There is a pseudo Yite out there but this one is the real one-and-only Yite.

    Probably ;)

    That's gotta be a portmanteau of two different Kirby bosses, unless an actual boss by that name exists... ?

    Also, I'm gonna be pretty mean in this game because I have an excellent memory for origins of usernames if they've even once been mentioned in passing elsewhere on the forum.

    2 kinds of fish put together? I know a cuttlefish is a thing, but I'm not sure if there's a fish that ends with shock. I remember reading yours in the other thread but I'm not going to cheat and find it again.

    This thread won't work well for me, I put no effort into creating this name. The person below me can just make up an origin. I kinda wish I could change my username to a better one, but even if I did, no one would know who I was after this. Although, that doesn't really matter for anywhere except this website and maybe YouTube, I obviously use my normal name for Facebook, and everywhere else I use this name is just an online game.

    The relation to cuttlefish is entirely retroactive (that is, I didn't think of it when I made this name, but part of why I've kept it for so long is because of them).

    So no real origin? Explains why I didn't know of one... it's just one of those nice-reading, meaningless 5~7-letter online handles that sound like names. My personal favourite style of username, honestly - it has loads of longevity because of its lack of direct association with any potentially fleeting interests and is always unique to the owner.

    Thanks for writing that, it made me feel better for having an uninspired username among all these ones that people put a lot more time into creating.

    As for anaru's name... It sounds like the japanese name for a pokemon, but I forgot which
