    Noire is French for black and and I'm a fan of the black color... but mostly on cars.
    I think it sounds fancy but that's just me . :p

    The name I usually go by outside of this place is 'Heroine of Winds' but since I joined here and to keep the tradition of squid puns, I switched 'Winds' to 'Squids'. And yes, 'Heroine of Winds' is a reference to the Hero of Winds from Wind Waker (my favorite Zelda game).

    People call me shy as a nickname so I thought it would be a good username.

    I just find the name "Luka" to be a very lovely name, and I adore it. If I'm in no way able to use any variation of "Luka", then I default to "Kittari", which, on top of being my NNID, is derived from my favorite monster from the Kirby anime, Kittarihattari (Slice n' Splice in the ENG dub).

    Skyler is my name. That's... all there is to it. It works, I guess.

    The 'Ink Gunner' part is a reference to to my love of run n' gun tactics. It's not efficient but when you got aggressive inklings, that's the way to go. Rock it and play for keeps~

    Azu from the shade of blue, 'azure', and 'hoshi' from the Japanese word for 'star'. I quite like the idea of a blue star!
    As for my NNID... it's self explanatory.

    I was browsing the Steam Workshop for Don't Starve mods at the time of making this username, and found a craftable butter mod. So that's where "Butter" came from.

    The "Very"?...I honestly have no idea. It's blank.

    Me and my grandfather were talking, when he mentioned the word "Quan" Curious, I looked it up, and one of the meanings was "the ultimate; the almighty; the maximum overlord" Since I thought myself to be good at electronics, and liked the sound of it, Tech_Quan was born.

    My username on here is my real first name, I'm so creative ;w; I usually go by the name of 'Blast' on the internet though, which is a nickname people gave me in a small Pokémon community I was part of. My username on there was 'Blastoise', also very creative, I know. That's also why my NNID is Blastystoise :3

    The "Mute" part comes from me enjoying peace and silence from time to time. Bard because I like make music (but not singing lol). Combined them both for a funny oxymoronic effect. Also I love Banette in my avatar and the fact that it cant speak while its reading this book with a judgmental face motivated me further to make this name.

    I play Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate every now and then, and my main weapon there is the Longsword. If you've played any of the Monster Hunter games, you know it's a mobile yet powerful weapon, and the attack that comes straight out of the sheath makes me feel all samurai-esque. Thus, LongswordSamurai. :)
