How did people come up with their user names? Some are a little obvious, and some not so much. Even on the obvious ones, what sort of identity do you wish to project?

I dunno how many times this thread has popped up, but hey, why not one more! xD

"Volkov" is technically inspired from the last name of a Russian singer, but once I found out it was the plural form of "wolf," I was even more interested in it. It just sounded cool so I decided to use it. Now I use it for everything. :D

Mine was pretty simple. I wanted something somewhat witty and creative. I'm terrible at coming up with interesting usernames so InsertNameHere was born. Keep in mind I came up with it before I joined this site and is my username on other things too.

Sorry about that. I didn't sift through to check, but i probably should have guessed that this was a repeat topic.

i'm not sure, but one of these could've been the reason:

1. a badger chased me before. the first couple of seconds were traumatising, but he wasn't very fast.

2. one bit my father before.

3. i was more than likely stoned.

Because I like to go RWAR SPORTS YAY and Canadians are cool.

No wait .. I wanted to appear aligned with a literary character a lot of people apparently haven't heard of.

No wait .. I really am the adjective of my user name.

No wait .. because people like sadolite think it makes me possibly some character from a reality show way back when.

No wait .. It's because I'm an astrology nut.

No wait ..

Well, the term "student-athlete" compelled me to place "student" before "athlete." I put "christian" in their so that if my mother sees this, she will approve :)

Interpret that however you want. >_>

A while ago I used to frequently participate in the online chat-based role-playing community of Rhy'Din. It was pretty fun and I might consider going back to it now that m memory of it is refreshed, but that's not really the point. Korashk was what I the name that I gave that character.

Oh. There is a Puckerman. I don't watch the show though so I don't really know what's being implied. :P

You have an "8" in your name.

I have an 8 in my name as well, but it means "Infinity."

Lack of creativity brought on by Fascism?

From anotherthread:

In an Episode of south park, a character called 'Sexual harassment Panda' came on. He said things like 'I'm a sad panda'.Once I applied these things to real life, people said 'What are you, a panda?'. My answer was 'I am a panda'. Hence the name I-am-a-panda.
Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.
