    Giraffes are my favorite animals. Girafarig is a Pokemon based on a giraffe. Shiny because that makes the Girafarig more unique.

    'Doodle' is a cool word and I like doodling stuff, so I thought why not..
    And the 'Nyaa' part...why not add something cute to Doodle OwO;

    Self explanatory really. I hail from Wales in the UK and I love the Canadian lifstyle so much that I want to go "over the pond" and gain dual citizenship.

    Since I'm mostly a support player, and my favorite weapons in shooters tend to be light machine guns or anything similar, I decided to go by LMG. It's also easier to recognize and remember :ability_tenacity:

    Well, I just did choose Nero because of a character of an old manga called Jojo no Kimyou na Bouken.

    I usually put this one on forums and online games, so I kept the tradition :)

    Funny story... I actually came from Smashboards. Filibrawler is a pun on filibuster, the Villager was my favorite character to play at the time. Animal Crossing: New Leaf makes the first villager created the mayor of the town... so, yeah!

    I like Sayaka from Madoka Magica, and I think Abstergo from Assassin's Creed is a cool name for a company. All I had to do was mash them together with an underscore and bam, username.

    And it's also my username for pretty much everything else.

    I like videos games, I'm fascinated with the universe, and GameGalaxy was taken on some other site. 64 because I love Nintendo and the name rolled off the tongue. I never owned an N64.

    It's just my first name. I used to come up with all sorts of alias', but none of them ever sounded right to me, so I decided to go simple, since I have a small amount of pride in my name. For the longest time though, I went by CHAOS. (Yes it was always spelled all caps like that, I thought it made it distinct).

    It's my name on another site (Google+). I don't really remember why I chose it. Probably because I was into Splatoon and I thought it sounded cool, lol.

    Caramiella, basically my internet alias name, and a revamped/revised version of my previous alias.
    Pretty unique, guess it would make it easier to find me on social media sites? :p

    I got my name from.................................I really don't know. I just kind of thought of it one day and it became my tag in every game. It was originally spelled "Ridel" but I changed it to "RiDEL" because I like the NiGHTS style.

    On Splatoon I go by the name 'Ely'. On the game RuneScape, I used to have the username 'l Elysium' and friends would call me Ely for short. So I kind of sticked to it.

    I've used the name "Bunnii" for quite some time now and have had several variations of it like NinjaBunnii or BunniiButt. "Bunnii" is just something I came up with as a character name while playing Maplestory a couple years ago. Although, I've never owned or have even touched the actual animal bunny, but I do have 3 dogs.

    Spiderface is my Mii's name. My sister and I made psycho looking Mii's and gave them retarded names, and Spiderface grew on me.

    As a joke I once set my name to Claus because I loved Mother 3, and it grew on me and my circle of friends.

    I've used this as my username on just about every website/online gaming account I have, so I just stuck with it.
