    Last school year we had a book project, and I picked "The Lord of the Rings" by J.R.R Tolkien. I read the entire thing in five weeks (at a leisurely pace, mind you), and became obsessed with the magical world of Arda.

    At one point, I decided to find an Elvish name for myself, in this case in Sindarin, language of the gray Elves. Manadhon (mah-nah-thon) means Doom, Fate, Final End, and Fortune. It's a depressing name if I've ever heard one, but someone has to have it.

      Wanted a Japanese sounding username since those were the things back in 2008.
      Wanted one that started with P.
      Wanted one with two words, so that it looked like a full real-life name.
      Wanted it to be similar to Hiroshi Sotomura.
      Stole Patchou from the Windows Live Plus developer.
      Added is in the middle. Got Patchisou.
      Took Tohru from Tohru Honda, the main character of Fruits Basket. Not my favorite anime, but the first anime I watched knowing it was an anime.
      Added Yu to make the name more full. Got Yutohru.
      Patchisou Yutohru.

      I'm not really sure how I went from UltimaZelfier to Zeffy. I guess it sounded cool? Can't remember.

      Blah. I. Suck.

      I joined five years ago. I was young and stupid. I had over four years to change it, but I only became active once I couldn't. Sometimes that's just how the cookie crumbles.

          My brother told me to use pridekitty. So that's what I used.
          And I'm a guy, btw.

          My Shinies:
          Quagsire M (Whoopie)
          Corsola F (Coral)
          Clauncher M (Dr. Zoidberg)
          Yanma M (Blue Buzz)
          Magikarp F (Goldy)
          Goldeen M (Neptune)
          Poliwhirl F (Polly)

          Yes, I am aware that five of them are fishing shinies and that all of them have stupid nicknames.

          My name is from Ah! My Goddess, my tied #1 favourite anime (with Yakitate! Japan). She's the overly-naive, kind female protagonist who acts as a pseudo-girlfriend for the male protagonist.

          I was very, very surprised that after all these years, no one had taken the name lol

          Ah, my username has a very basic story. My favourite element was always fire. The word 'heart' just seem to fit with it perfectly. I am shocked that no one took the username before me, however, I am pleased that they didn't.

            I was pretty surprised to get this name since the character is rather popular... Maybe it's because of the periods.

            Nowadays if I tried to sign up with this username, I'd be surprised if it weren't taken--especially considering how many people seemed to adore Lightning in Final Fantasy XIII. (Unfortunately I don't really care for the character at all, haha.)

            But being the 31st person to sign up on this iteration of PC and probably in the low hundreds on previous incarnations, I'm not very surprised I got it. Even as a natural weather phenomena, I guess the name is taken quite often but not on niche Pokemon forums like PC was when I registered. :P

            Went with an electric motif (A Livewire being a wire with an electrical charge in it, touching one will probably kill you) since that's my favorite type. :D

              I actually have an old account with my real name on it, but now i've switched to Mackenzie because of a few reasons.

              The name is not much common, and it allowed me to develop a sense of being unique in a way; also it allowed me to state my name in its proper format, "capitalizing the first letter, and following with lowercase letters" - i came to adapt the advent of this name format from several pcs after i created my first account :''>; and lastly, being taken from the pokemon game itself. Specifically, I came across a school kid named Mackenzie, a gym trainer, in Hearthome city gym from the pokemon diamond,pearl,platinum game, I thought it was a really good name, and considering the 7-char limit in the games, i'm thankful that most forums don't have that. xD

                One day while playing around and drawing stuff in my sketchpad, I'd finished drawing a cute little doodle of Riolu and Lucario, two Pokémon I quite admire. After writing their names beside each other, I noticed that they could fit together quite well, hence Riolucario.

                Later, I enrolled on one of my favorite communities by the name of Pokestadium, and I chose that name, contrary to my previous idea of GhostlyGiggles11 (MLP reference). I added the one-one (I say one-one instead of eleven), due to a mix of not wanting someone else to have taken my username and also because the one-one reminded me of the infamous Hitachiin Twins at the same time ^w^

                And so, Riolucario11 was born. But Rio is a lot easier, eh?

                  There's an A.I in this one Halo book called Blackbox, and although I've never read the book I just liked the name.

                    MisterCotton was made because I had to choose one of my favorite Pokémon, and it was Whimsicott. Now, to be completely honest, I really could of chose other of my faves, like Gallade or Escavalier. Though, if it weren't for that puffball, I would have a hard time creating a name that at least doesn't have the Pokémon's name on it, because then it would be not so original.

                      I've wanted my real name in real life to be Dominic since Freshman year of high school. It's what I also name myself in all of my Pokémon games. I felt it was appropriate to have my name here be there. I actually just had a conversation with my father regarding changing my name yesterday. Its a conversation I've wanted to have with him for just about as long as I've been consciously considering changing my name. It felt like what I imagine coming out feels like, actually.

                        I just made this account (as well as a new email, facebook, etc.) as I wanted something more personal. Let me break it down:

                        Dusk, despite being an awesome-sounding first name, has meaning. Dusk is the darkest time of the night by definition. I love nighttime, from the near silence, to the cool winds, to the dark and (to me) relaxing setting. On top of that, dusk is simply the most ideal time of night, where those three high points are at their greatest.

                        As for Lunacy, well, this one isn't as simple. Lunacy is pretty much synonymous with Lunatic, meaning someone who is crazy/insane. With all of my oddities I believe this to be true in a sense. I also like to act a tad nuts at times, because laughter to me is one of the greatest experiences ever. However, this isn't my main point. Lunacy has a secondary definition, where it not only means crazy, but crazy in the presence of the full moon. I absolutely love staring at the moon, especially when full. And at dusk, there couldn't be a better time!

                          I love comics since I was a kid and my favorite villain, as awful it sounds, always have been Loki. Also, Loki is my nickname so... why not.
