    My username Miyuki , is because i really love japanese names.Miyuki has 1 meaning that i like ''Deep snow'' i never touched snow before,so that name was kind of emotional.It is also because Mi means my in spanish and yuki in japanese means ''snow'' or ''happiness'' ( i prefer more snow ) So it will be ''My Snow'' or ''My happiness'' .
    Edit:its like ''mi yuki'' because i separated ''mi'' and ''yuki'' !

    My nickname originates from my real name.

    It's Csongor, and thats Csongi for short.

    Chockolate is "csokolàdé" in my mother language and that is"csoki" for short.

    Since Csongi and csoki sounds familiar my friends started to call me Csoki, and that's why I choose this nickname.

    And also because everyone likes Chocolate... :)

    Vertigo is a condition that I suffer from.

    The google definition of Vertigo is: ‘A sense that inside the head or the room is spinning, often triggered by changes in head position.’

    I think it’s a lot better than JRex, a name I seldomly use these days.

    I chose this name because I used to main a Mad Milk scout in tf2, and really liked the hat of the same name.

    Mine comes from my dad's nickname "The Nacho"
    I'm Nacho's kid, thus Kidnacho.

    I haven't seen this yet so I guess I'll chip in. My middle name in real life is Amadeus, mother wanted something musical from that era so that's what it is. In Latin this mean "To love god", the Feminine of this is Amadea (but no one would know what that is). In modern Italian Amare is "To love" but every girl and her mother already has that as their username for one thing or another. To solve this I use a bit of English phonetic trickery adding in Amarae which is phonetically identical and taken far less often.

    Another common username I make use of is Amethystine /Amiithystine, and my common email address if AmethystineMelody@Gmail.com. My background in music (Yes my mother did get to raise her little musician) and my favourite colour being purple(Amethyst) are to blame for this. My boyfriend of now 3 years gave me the nickname "Amii" so I often use that as well.

    Nick names among friends are just Amii, Miims, or Miimii depending on how close we are. Generally people find Amii (as in Amii-bo) much easier to pronounce than Amarae heh.

    I'll bite, though mine isn't nearly as interesting as Amarae's

    Way back in the days of PlanetSide 1, I got tired of coming up with user names and embraced the anonymity of the internet. I started just naming myself after what I was doing. Thus PilotJoe, DrivingJoe and ExplodingJoe were born.

    ExplodingJoe carried into tf2 where I played a lot of demo-man, and I just stuck with the theme. Occasionally I'll roll out as SunSworn, if the game I'm playing had a theocratic theme, but I like the low key feel of the Joe format... It blends in.

    Mine’s quite simple really, although you could say that I didn’t REALLY think out what the implications were.

    I meant it to combine two things I am/ like.
    I am sort of a nerd.
    I like birds (the animals, if you were wondering...)

    And so my nickname was born....

    So I used to go by the name Lord Bababa for the longest time, but I eventually decided to go with my real name as a way to distinguish myself from the stupidity I put online when I was a teenager and also because it forces me to be sincere and honest since my name's there. Granted, there are some obvious privacy concerns in place...., but there's a lot of things I want to do in life that would unfortunately mean I have no privacy whatsoever, so I kind of was just like "eh, screw it."

    from greekmythology.com: "Erebus was one of the primordial deities in Greek mythology, born out of the primeval void, Chaos. It was the personification of the deep darkness and shadows."

    Seems to go with the whole squid lurking, coming out to do damage thing.

    Also, Erebus is a really cool volcano in Antarctica.

    Decided to go with greek for my handle. I was tired of having my handles (stolen) used by other people in games and people i knew mistaking them for me.
    Not the worst thing in the world but it did get annoying after awhile, it was more than just once or twice, and at least a couple times I'm pretty sure it was the same person.(ie someone that I knew personally but never found out who)

    So I came up with something most people would have no idea about (thusly wont sound cool enough to take) and sounds cool to boot.

    Phichikapparho when it will fit, and just "phichi" when it will not.

    Phi- f
    Chi- c
    Kappa- k
    Rho- r

    Yes it means what you think it does. Greek does not have a u, and the e made the full word too long and didn't sound all that great rolling off the tongue either.

    But now that I'm 30, it doesn't seem nearly as clever as it did 12+years ago.

    Also it's what my friends usually call me when playing against them in games like this. (Ie. you f*******!)

    It's been so long I don't want to change it to anything else.

    In middle school I got big into retro game consoles and whenever I would play an RPG I would name my characters after them, Colecovision, Vectrex, **** like that. Wonderswan was the one that took i guess.

    DualBlade25. I made it years ago when I started watching SAO. Don't worry. I didn't get past episode 7. 25 as my Bday falls on the 25th
