View Full Version : Do you consider your username to be your second name?


Signomi
July 14th, 2009, 06:34 AM
Credit to wakachamo for this poll. :<

Anyway, the reason I ask is because I know there are a number of people on this forum who have held their username for a long time and frequently use it in different areas of the internet, maybe even outside as well. People would often associate them as that name just as much as their real name.

I joined PC in 2005 as Signomi and have joined other communities with the same alias, it has definitely grown on me. People either call me Siggy as a nickname or this username and that's been recurring for about...ooh 4 years now. I did have another alias I went by (Shiharu) but even then people best saw me as Signomi.

So tell, me, do you use your own username as an identity in various places?

Forever
July 14th, 2009, 06:36 AM
Not for me.

My friends IRL don't go calling me "Nurse Nica"... as that would be very strange. I join other places with whatever username I like at the time o3o

Captain Fabio
July 14th, 2009, 06:37 AM
Some people on MSN called me "Alinthea" every so often, but mainly my real name =]

I use Rekhyt on nearly every forum I join nowadays. It's become my only universal username on the internet. Before that, I'd join forums with a different username each time. Became quite dauting remembering who I was in whatever forum, I recall. Most of my old friends still refer to me as Oni though, even after I've had this username for nearly a year. All in all I don't mind so long as I know they're addressing me. When I can't figure that out we'll have a real problem.

In real life, no one knows about my username. I keep those two worlds hundreds of miles apart and I don't see it changing anytime soon.

Vyro
July 14th, 2009, 06:41 AM
Yes, I am Darkly on every forum I visit.

some people just call me DTF though...

Eucliffe
July 14th, 2009, 06:43 AM
Well... People do tend to call me by my username, or by a shortened version ("Zu" instead of "Zuzu" and "Pika" or "Kataro" instead of "Pikataro", for example), and I used to hate that (I tried having people call me by my "real" name(s), which was (or were) just (an) alias(es), so...).

Now, as long as it's something I like, I don't mind :3

So yeah, I consider my username(s) to be my second names. Now I don't like being called by my (truly real) first name.

.Wolfie-kun.
July 14th, 2009, 06:44 AM
Sometimes I do. I get called Wolfie occasionally IRL, I'm glad XD

Mitchman
July 14th, 2009, 06:45 AM
I'm more or less Mitchman on every forum I am on.

Gold warehouse
July 14th, 2009, 06:45 AM
I use the username Vendak everywhere and a few people call me Ven or Vendak irl, I don't really care whether they use Vendak or my real name. I don't mind other people my age calling me it, but I think it is pretty weird hearing my dad call me Ven as he sometimes does, but w/e.

⋚Raika⋚
July 14th, 2009, 06:45 AM
Yes, but not my current username though. My username is Raika on most forums, and I treat that as my second name, but Raika is already taken by an inactive member here, so... :(

~*!*~Tatsujin Gosuto~*!*~
July 14th, 2009, 06:50 AM
Many of the adults in my school call me Queen because of my name being Latifah (as in Queen latifah the actress), but no one calls me Queen Boo though, they may call me Booluver


:t354:TG

Neko64
July 14th, 2009, 07:01 AM
My username is my second name. xD In real life, my nickname has been "Neko" since I was in 7th grade (granted, Neko would be my username here, but unfortunately someone already took it <<). I may not use Neko for every forum I go to (since obviously chances of it being taken already are very high), but I have other names that I use which relate to it or have the word Neko in it (ex, two of my email/screennames are "evilnekopika" and "darknekopika").

Le Krome
July 14th, 2009, 07:02 AM
Not my current one, but yeah. People are always calling me "Mence". :3

.little monster
July 14th, 2009, 07:14 AM
Yes I do, everyone in real life calls me Ctep (Step).

daigonite
July 14th, 2009, 07:17 AM
People call me Charon in real life, usually over skype. Sometimes I won't respond to my real name but respond to Charon instead o.o

Anxiety.
July 14th, 2009, 07:19 AM
Nah. My old one, maybe. But not my new one, I've only just got it, because I felt like a change from the usual.

My second name would probably be Butters, as I cosplay as him in the Birmingham South Park Cosplay group.

Superjub
July 14th, 2009, 07:19 AM
I use Superjub for most forums, mmorpgs etc. that I create. :3 Some of my friends IRL call me Jubs or Superjub occasionally, but mostly just my real name. ;)

Xashlei
July 14th, 2009, 07:27 AM
I also use Xashlei on several forums. Though only few of my IP (in-person) friends call me Xash, I guess I do consider it my second name of sorts. I've got no actual second name. :B

Alexithymia~
July 14th, 2009, 08:02 AM
I'd be a little frightened .. if someone in IRL called me BlueSnowHoundoom. It's too long anyway~

I used to go by another name on forums. Ineffable.. and I was known as Neffi. Which I actually kinda like, and there's this one person who still calls me that.

Actually, thinking about it. I might change my username to Ineffable~ hmm.

Melody
July 14th, 2009, 08:23 AM
I do believe that my current username has become a second name to me. Every since I picked up the name Pachy, it's just been impossible to shake, as everyone everywhere seems to have taken an intense liking to that name. It's like, no matter what other name I may be using at the time, people still refer to me as Pachy. xD I've even spoken on the phone with some of my online friends, who would simply call me Pachy. xD

But, I can't really complain, it's really not a bad nickname to have ne?

BeachBoy
July 14th, 2009, 08:27 AM
Not really, beachy can describe me sometimes, but I don't really consider it a second name, I guess. I'm Ryan through and through, but Ryab does come close since people have heard of it. XD

Kazukii
July 14th, 2009, 08:28 AM
No, I don't & never have. It's a username & nothing more :)

Graceful
July 14th, 2009, 08:31 AM
I'm several things........I'm graceful here,Yuffie Kisaragi on Final Fantasy Forums,etc

Kinarii
July 14th, 2009, 09:07 AM
No one IRL calls me Kinarii or Kina, but it's how I'm known everywhere on the internet, and how I refer to myself, simply because I like it better than my actual name. I use the name everywhere I'm active online.

You could say more people know me as Kina than as my real name, 'cause I really have only 2 IRL friends and at least half a dozen OL friends. X3

Lily!
July 14th, 2009, 09:08 AM
My username is my first name, haha.
Usually if Lily is already taken wherever I go, I pick a username which sounds cool to me, and I am pretty picky with usernames. As far as usernames go, I've been known as "SoulDew" and "HeartGold" on deviantART which both correlate to pokemon, which I love. :)
However, I don't think of them as second names, because most people still refer to me as Lily anyway.

Pyrax
July 14th, 2009, 09:34 AM
I have used 4 different usernames, 2 of which I use a lot.
Nobody I know IRL calles me Pyrax, just my real name.

piece of something
July 14th, 2009, 10:16 AM
it should be. hell people have been calling me a piece of something for a long time. why not make it official right?

Cherrim
July 14th, 2009, 11:00 AM
"Lightning" used to be a second name for me. For a few years online, it was how everyone called me (or some variation of it like Lighty). Now most people know and use my real name, though. I kind of prefer it since I barely have a common username. Lightning is taken absolutely everywhere since it's so common and my other alias ("Cherrim") is... well, it's me most places, but I don't really identify with it like I did Lightning. :[ So I guess I've gotta say no on this one. Not anymore, at least.

Ayselipera
July 14th, 2009, 11:27 AM
Well my username is my real name so that is what people call me in real life.
That being said I usually don't put my name in my username, I just felt like it this time around.

Motsuko Live
July 14th, 2009, 11:35 AM
In a way, I guess. Not IRL, though. Definitely not IRL. XD;

I chose Motsuko Live specifically for this forum, so I guess everyone knows me as Motsuko now, despite numerous name changes/alternate accounts. No one IRL calls me that, though. I've only ever told one of my friends that I'm even on this forum, and I only told him because I knew he wouldn't judge me. He doesn't call me Motsuko Live, though... that would be weird. ;p

Gumball Watterson
July 14th, 2009, 12:56 PM
Yeah, AdvancedK9 is pretty much my second name, almost my primary name in fact XD. I should consider patenting it.

Rokusasu
July 14th, 2009, 01:01 PM
Nope, this is only my name for PokeCommunity- I have another alias that I use everywhere else online, but for some reason, I didn't use it here. o:

sanny the hedgehog
July 14th, 2009, 01:17 PM
sanny was my nickname before i got on pc.
yeah most of my friends call me that and whenever i meet someone new it usually goes like this
"hi im sanny, well actually my name is jonathan. but every one calls me sanny"
and in the class room during the school year, most of the guys call me sanny but all the girls call me by my real name. adults dont call me sanny, but yeah my online name is my second real name.

The Red Chain
July 14th, 2009, 02:38 PM
Since only a very small number of people know my real name, yes, you could say 'sugar' is my secondary name.
It's not like my real name is used even when I tell what it is.. those who know it only use a variant of it.

Sora
July 14th, 2009, 02:52 PM
A lot of people who don't know me by my real name call me by the name of Peaches. However, it really depends on how I meet them. If I meet them through like... one of the roleplay journals on LJ, then they call me by that name (etc: Red). So... I guess it kind of is? No one in real life calls me that, but yeah.

dotKarma
July 14th, 2009, 04:40 PM
People online use it as my name, but my friends don't use forums that much (other than a few of my friends that use reddit, which kind of isn't even a forum).

People have called me King before (When I was known here as KingOfGold and on maple story I was strain king). I guess people sometimes call me Karma, but I wouldn't really know since I've only had the username for a week or so...

amithemeek
July 14th, 2009, 05:05 PM
Yes, on every MMO RPG I have ever played i am known as "Ami" :3 sometimes even in RL. and as for the "meek" part of my name..... lets just say Mika had to drag me back onto PC. I will get her for this...

Dukey
July 14th, 2009, 05:14 PM
Funny how my username is my second name o.o

ShinjisLover
July 14th, 2009, 05:18 PM
Not my username, per say, but my nickname (SL), yes. I do think of SL to be like a second name in a way, considering no one knows my real name and can't give me any other nicknames since no one knows my gender either.

JoltIce
July 14th, 2009, 05:29 PM
I would say yes, though most people just call me "Jolt" or "JoltIce". The only people who know my real name are people who have played on Wi-Fi with me, and they don't care about it either.

Citrinin
July 14th, 2009, 05:51 PM
Not really, as I'm new to the internet, but it wouldn't surprise me if that happened. :P

>Feelings<
July 14th, 2009, 08:21 PM
I consider my username (only the 'Feelings' part) my fourth name. But yeah, this is the alias I've decided to use everywhere where I don't feel like letting people know my real name.
So this name is at the fourth spot. At the first spot is my real name, which I hate (though I love the meaning of the name). At the second and third spot are two of my nicknames, which I love.

Lucy Lu
July 14th, 2009, 10:04 PM
Well for this username, no. For the most part everyone calls me by my real name. I used it here before. Everyone who knows me know what it is.

Snivi
July 14th, 2009, 11:56 PM
No I don't think of it that way.

Ayano Katagiri
July 15th, 2009, 12:30 AM
IRL - no, there are only a few of my friends that know of my username and they call me by my proper name.

Online - Ayano Katagiri has been my username pretty much everywhere since November last year. Forums, blogs etc. And people who don't know my real name usually call me Ayano, I've noticed. Too lazy to spell Katagiri. :P

Charliezard
July 15th, 2009, 12:44 AM
Well Charlie and Charliezard do have a lot in common. Mainly the "Charlie" part... Although it isn't what I would call a second name lol xP I use it wherever I can online...

*Nayz*
July 15th, 2009, 01:18 AM
I do for my previous name (L_Judah) because it's a nickname. My current user name is actually a play on my real name so I guess that too.

adventure
July 15th, 2009, 02:00 AM
Nah. Definately not irl :p But online, I'm still called Fable in most places. Especially on PC. Doesn't matter if I change my username into Rarris or Furuba, Fable seems to be my name here. At least for people who don't know or don't bother using my "real" name :>

Tré
July 15th, 2009, 02:15 AM
well, in mmorpg my IGN will always have an index of tre.... e.g..[xD]Tre, [AnChoRaGe]Tre..and some of my friends call me that.... the origin of tre is from the band called green day...and the craziest drummer in the world...xD

Bear
July 15th, 2009, 03:26 AM
Online, sure. But offline it'd be weird if someone called me Bear. I only see that happening if I were to meet someone I know online. :v

Went
July 15th, 2009, 04:12 AM
To begin with, my username is based on my name XD

But yeah, after a while, I know more people who call me Went than Víctor.

Emily.
July 15th, 2009, 04:26 AM
I don't exactly consider my username as a second name, because, well, it is my actual name. So, that's more or less the simple answer to the question. Aside from the fact that my name clearly does not have a period in it. XD;

Mizan de la Plume Kuro
July 15th, 2009, 04:53 AM
I'm going to request a name change soon-not because of this though- because I felt like it. And also because I think my current ones getting a bit stale. If you're asking about the name I'm going to change to, then it's actually a clever anagram of my last name. Though, if you try to find out what happens if you rearrange my name -just because you were trying to find out my actual identity- using all possible arrangements, you'd come out with 120 results. There was a formula, I forgot what it was called though....

What, you think people go around calling me 'Neo Groudon' IRL?

Sammi
July 15th, 2009, 06:26 AM
Sana, no. People call me that here since it's my username, but I never connect it with myself.

My friends all call me Sammi online, mostly from back in the day where that was my username. But that's based off a nickname offline. My sister used to call me Sammi-san all the time, and Sammi came from one of my aunts, if I remember correctly. So I don't know if it'd really count as a second name, because it's based off of my real name. :s

Michii
July 15th, 2009, 07:49 AM
I had a long post for this yesterday, but my step father closed the page while I was away from my computer. ;; So here we go... XD

I chose the name Michii because of my real name. Last year, my friends and I used to chill at another friend's house after school every single day. One of those days, I brought my two yearbooks for fun. We would write little tidbits about ours or other people's pictures. One of my friends took my elementary school yearbook and wrote "hai2umichi" on it. I liked the name Michi (as in Mishy), so I tried to change my name to it on the forum that I frequented before I joined PC. It was taken, so I just added an 'i.'

So I'm Michii as in Mishy. Mishy is just short for Michelle, my real name. So I just consider Michii as the online version of my real name, if that makes any sense. XDD;

Gerri Shin
July 15th, 2009, 09:54 AM
no, especially since it is my name, therefore I consider it to be my first name.

Arcanine
July 15th, 2009, 04:33 PM
If my username wasn't so common then I guess others around the webz would know who I was (I've found PC people on other forums just by their username). But as for people I know... no one calls me "Arcanine".

Hiidoran
July 15th, 2009, 05:20 PM
Hiidoran is my second identity in the sense that I use it on every other forum I join, or in any username identity field for that matter. Back when I first started getting back into PC, a lot of people would refer to me as "Hide," but that quickly changed once they learned my real name.

Now, even people I don't know address me by my first name. I usually just assume they either read it here on PC, learned it from a mutual friend, or they're just my stalker-buddy. o/\o

Still, I received scary threats the last time I changed my username. I don't think I'll be changing it anytime soon. XD;

Beelzebub
July 15th, 2009, 07:44 PM
Why yes, people do call me my username irl. ;D I'm also well-known under the nickname "Sunny", which refers to my username on another forum. Usually people think up a nickname for w/e username I pick at different places. I rarely pick the same username.

Vie
July 16th, 2009, 02:48 AM
I am Akuma usually and some people like to call me that in RL too. It has become my name, kinda, though most poeple who call me Akuma are from the internet.

coolman89765
July 16th, 2009, 01:04 PM
i wouldnt think of it as my second name

Astinus
July 16th, 2009, 07:07 PM
I can safely say that my username becomes a second name to me. I try to keep the same username wherever I sign up to online, so that I'm recognizable, so I just get used to being called by this name.

But a lot of people call me this name, or the shortened version of it. (You people make nicknames out of everything.) And I tend to call myself this when talking to myself. (Long-ish story about how I don't like my real name.) So this name is just a part of me now.

bit.trip void
July 16th, 2009, 09:27 PM
Im called Jess everywhere it's not taken, Or JessicaH, or any variation you want.

Yaliw
July 16th, 2009, 11:39 PM
Actually, yes, yes i do.
Don't ask me where it comes from, or i'd have to kill you.
IN THE NAME OF ARAWN

Terrain
July 17th, 2009, 01:56 AM
Not much. Yes, I use Terrain in most sites, but people still call me Rick sometimes, and no one knows me as Terrain IRL.

In terms of preference, the name's Rick. :]

Netto Azure
July 17th, 2009, 03:44 PM
Now that you mention it...I might just go ahead and adopt it as one LOL. XD

salmence33
July 17th, 2009, 03:49 PM
on the internet yes
off no

mainly because it would be weird to call me sal or salmence in public
especially since I'm a boy

Lilith
July 17th, 2009, 08:59 PM
Originally, I went by Angel everywhere (however, there are too many "Angel" names taken on forums). Then, TB started to grow on me, even though it's nubby. Both names are better than my real name, so I do prefer being identified by my usernames.

Route 18
July 18th, 2009, 12:56 AM
No, since I change my name whenever possible.

bewbs
July 18th, 2009, 03:26 AM
I consider my username as my chest. I let people call me Chloe or C.Gholy - whatever they want to call me.

GOLD.FTW
July 18th, 2009, 03:38 AM
no - i don't consider it to be my second name due to the fact i try to make up a name that sorta fits into the forum or other online website that i would be joining at the time. =)

Haza
July 22nd, 2009, 05:37 PM
In a way yes. I love it. I use it for everything.

Arago
July 22nd, 2009, 05:40 PM
The only username I've grown attached to is Patchisou Yutohru. I think the reason for that is because it's as if it is a real name. Considering it my second name... isn't something that I normally do. :(

I don't think I consider anything, for that matter, my second name.

zappyspiker
July 22nd, 2009, 05:44 PM
hell yeaz! It's pretty much lived with me. I've had this username since I was 3 or 5 or something

Jude Mathis
July 22nd, 2009, 08:16 PM
Yes.

This name.. doesn't even make me think of the Pokemon character anymore. xD; So many people online think that it's my real name. Heck, I bet you I could change my username, and everyone would still call me Drew. I've had it since I joined here, and even before that I used it on a couple of other forums. On most of the Pokemon forums I joined, I keep the SN. It's just easier that way.. the end result is no one calls me by anything else. Except for one or two people on here, who know my RL nickname and call me by it. :x

Literally.. only two people, that I can think of. xD;

Caelus
July 22nd, 2009, 09:25 PM
IRL - No, not at all. I prefer for people to call me by my first or last name; once people realize where the word Glion / Gliscor comes from they'll find out that I still like the series. They probably won't, but I'd like to avoid that.

Online - well, all of my recent names have something to do with Gliscor, so kind of; however, I don't feel like having Gliscor in my names anymore so I feel like letting the name go.

Cid
July 22nd, 2009, 09:45 PM
No, I don't, even if people here call me Enishi, Eni or Tux.
I use Chris IRL, but no one calls me that here.

No one IRL except my brother and a friend know that Enishi/Enirev is/was my online name.
No one IRL calls me that, either.

Star★Seeker
July 22nd, 2009, 09:51 PM
No. But it'll be fun if people did. Nobody even knows I have an account on a Pokemon forum and that my username's Poker Face, so, as I said before, no.

Naruto Uzumaki
July 28th, 2009, 03:17 PM
No lo. >.< That would be weird :3

Vrai
July 28th, 2009, 06:41 PM
Kinda-sorta. I try to keep to the same username for a lot of sites.. and Vrai just kinda keeps popping in here and there. I do like the name a lot, though. :D

Xairmo
July 28th, 2009, 06:49 PM
I think it actually goes a bit further than just being a second name. For me it's not only another name, it's my online persona. Kind of like a "Cyber Identity," if you will. I'm sure other members feel the same, I'm just a tad lazy at the moment to read over the 4 pages. :]

The Scientist

The Corrupt Plague
August 15th, 2009, 02:08 PM
Yes, because I never reveal my real name online to anyone except my closest friends. So technically, when I'm online, The Corrupt Plauge IS my name. If a forum asks for personal info when I want to join, it is always fake.

Guy
August 15th, 2009, 03:13 PM
Let's Get Lost Together isn't something everyone calls me everyday. Not even here at the community would I be called that, as some may find it too long. However, when they don't they simply revert to my older name, Aero. which for them is natural, simple, and shorter. For real life though, many people find themselves calling me Shivi, which is my nickname. However, I do plan to get a name change this coming october to something I seem to really enjoy and I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up growing on me after awhile.

By Drew: Yes.

This name.. doesn't even make me think of the Pokemon character anymore. xD; So many people online think that it's my real name. Heck, I bet you I could change my username, and everyone would still call me Drew. I've had it since I joined here, and even before that I used it on a couple of other forums. On most of the Pokemon forums I joined, I keep the SN. It's just easier that way.. the end result is no one calls me by anything else. Except for one or two people on here, who know my RL nickname and call me by it. :x

Literally.. only two people, that I can think of. xD;

You are very right on what you said here. Recently you've gotten your name altered from Drew to Break. Even though it is your new username, I still end up finding myself referring to you as Drew. So, it is a name that has definitely grown onto me for which I call you.

Timbjerr
August 15th, 2009, 05:45 PM
Ever since I started using "Timbjerr", people on the internets call me "Tim" for short, which I've adapted as my RL nickname...even though my name is Tommy. XD

BHwolfgang
August 16th, 2009, 01:03 PM
Nope. My user-name never fits with my nickname. There's always a chance for the next user-name, but not this one.

Jolene
August 16th, 2009, 01:42 PM
I would consider it to be my first name. Wait... IT IS!

Azelf118
August 16th, 2009, 01:47 PM
Nope, I just use it for this site because it is about pokemon!!

Camisado
August 16th, 2009, 01:47 PM
It only suits some nicknames, doesn't it? xD

Yes, my username on PC is the one I'm most known as, and I use it in the IRC chan where I met most of my friends here.

I'm Camisado, Cami, Cami-cake (thanks Siggy xD), Cami-shaa (oh, that waka), Cam, Cam-chan, Cam-shaft (curse you mewthree xD) and sometimes Kellysado (my real name is Kelly - I believe this name came from Audy).

Captain Hobo.
August 16th, 2009, 01:48 PM
Well sometimes people call me Diggy.

Klippy
August 16th, 2009, 01:51 PM
Technically I can now say yes. XD This username is what many friends off of PC and on PC call me. Never do I get called by my real name anymore. XD

No, not this username. Some of my closer friends call me Luna occasionally because of my email address, but not nearly often enough to even be called a nickname.

Yup. On the internet, I ALWAYS go by Dragoon Three. (My first username.)

Well, if I told my friends too, it would be understandable... But I wouldn't like people calling me a "freak", for any certain reason. ;)

No, I don't consider my username as my second name. I have a lot of different names I use on different forums. Not only that, but I'm also starting to dislike this username (didn't think when choosing a username). It's too long and hard to spell, and because of that, I've been given a nickname. I'll have to wait for about four more months until I can get a name change. I'm currently debating on what my next username should be. The second username I'm choosing is what I'm gonna stick with for a very long time.

I consider Zeta as another name. Not the Dimentio part. I'm keeping Zeta no matter what theme I go with, and I would actually respond with Zeta.

Not this one. I consider Azonic sort of like my second name though. :x

Since this was the first forum I joined where I actually made friends, yes. Yes I do. My first nickname here was Silver, given to me by Astinus, so the writing community typically calls me that. However, the Pokemon Special community usually calls me Splatty. SSS is another one, I suppose, and it's always my post comment tag since my username is long. I modded another forum where my username was Sydian, which is also my writer's name, so usually Silver and Sydian (or Syd) are my second names. I like to pretend Splatty doesn't exist. :B

Edit; Also, I would never expect (or want) to be called Healthy Libido in person. Ever. I used Irishaboo on another forum for a long time to stalk Rekhyt and I used it as a MySpace name, but my friend Scott made fun of me for it. I thought it was cool, so then I beat him in the face with an American soup ladle. I went by Kurt Cobain and got called that...a lot...so I thought I was Kurt Cobain for a while. Color Me Happy and Genocide never stuck with people, though. I'm pretty much ranting so I'm just gonna go away.

Yes.

This name.. doesn't even make me think of the Pokemon character anymore. xD; So many people online think that it's my real name. Heck, I bet you I could change my username, and everyone would still call me Drew. I've had it since I joined here, and even before that I used it on a couple of other forums. On most of the Pokemon forums I joined, I keep the SN. It's just easier that way.. the end result is no one calls me by anything else. Except for one or two people on here, who know my RL nickname and call me by it. :x

Literally.. only two people, that I can think of. xD;

So true xD

Yeah, since RickySlaughter is the name use in my band. So yep.

Nah, I wouldn't consider Brushfire as a second name for me, really. However, I have used "Sam Brushfire" as a name for a Fan-Fic character in the past, so yeah. :3

I don't know if I'd call it a second name, but it's become my name everywhere else I go, and if someone yelled it out in the street I'd more than likely spin around.

Well, nobody in real life calls me it, if that's what you mean. XD

Mew Ichigo is indeed my "second name". People at school call me it.

Eternal Nightmare

Yeah I usually do...my username in mostly everything I do is Shadow and even my friends tend to call me Shadow. My username now is something I threw together as Shadow is taken as a username x_x.
