As always... Comune of Italy and site of a series of battles during WWII. Also music. The word itself means 'old forum' as I recall. I looked it up for one of these threads once, but I won't bother this time.

Fun fact: only two people on this board have ever mis-spelled the word 'casino' as my name.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: it's a play on words.

Back in 2011, I think, I was a huge Lady Gaga fan. Yeah... I was playing this online game at the time, so I changed my nickname to xxpokerfacexx or some muk. I thought it was fitting, 'cause I also liked playing poker. Boy, was I clever. Anyway, there was this girl I met on there and we became bestiezzz. She started calling me Pokiemon (I've always been a Pokemon fan), and then Poki for short. So yeah. Kinda sad 'cause it reminds me of my idiotic years (2009-2012), but it just stuck with me, y'know?

I also get called Betty a lot, which is far different from my actual name, and it's something I made up. See, I hated my name, and I still do, so when someone on the net asked me for my name, I'd say Beatris; Betty, for short.

Okay, I'm done.

That's such a cute name and story, which is a bit weird coming from you, haha.

My username is Sheep because I thought it sounded cute. To be completely honest there was someone else on another website (not a forum) with this name and I thought it looked great so I nabbed it a few years ago.. and it's stuck since. Real words are my preference and this happened to be one of the nicer ones that came up at the time.

once a sheep, always a sheep. no fun story here, unfortunately D'8

my username is the first three letters of my last name + Crash Bandicoot, which was pretty much my obsession when I was like 6, which is when I first adopted this name. it's kinda catchy and I can't think of anything else so it's persisted throughout the 10 or so years I've had it.

The meaning behind my name is quite stupid, but I think I really want to stick with it. I came up with "Revise Librarian" by putting together two Yu-Gi-Oh cards from decks that I owned in real life, which are based on two of my favorite duelists, Yusei and Shark. That's part of the reason why my previous username was "You Say ~Shark~", but that name actually had infinitely more meaning than my current username. Unfortunately, I'm too lazy to explain the true meaning behind that name since it's a thing of the past now, haha.

Anyways, as for "Revise Librarian":

"Revise" is derived from "Revise Dragon," an early translation of the name "Leviathan Dragon," a card in my Shark-themed deck.
"Librarian" was pulled directly from "T.G. Hyper Librarian," one of the most important cards in my Yusei-themed deck.

And, um... Librarians have the ability to "revise" certain things, so... okay, I'll shut up now haha.

I don't really have a story behind Alli, honestly. I've just liked the name Allison, with Alli for short, for a few years. If I were to change my real name, I'd change it to Alli. It's only two letters off from it though, so overall, it wouldn't be a huge change. But I'm named after my grandfather and dad, so I don't think I could bring myself to change it.

Back in 2008, there was a call for final username changes here. At the same time, I finally accepted myself as trans, and wanted a more masculine name to represent that. And at the same time, I was reading through the DragonLance series, and reached the chapter where the character Astinus is introduced. Since the character is a lot like me, I decided to use the name as my online persona.

Since it's a popular name, I can't use it everywhere. When that's the case, I either put "Speaker" (reference to a book I used to love) or "ninja" (long story) before it. I've also grown fond of the nickname "Asty," and I pair that up with "ninja" to be amused.

To be honest I just thought it sounded cool :P I really wanted a short, memorable username, and Zero just worked.

3 of my old usernames (Keyblade, White Mage, Guildmaster Wigglytuff), however, were taken from video games that I really love (Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, PMD2).

5-6 year old me needed a username for an email account and neopets. Wanted something that had a bit of a spark to it and eventually came up with zappyspiker. After 15ish years with this name, it's getting old, but I can't seem to find a better name that I'm satisfied with especially after having this name for so long.

The meaning behind my name is simple, I just love Castform! It's my favorite Pokemon of all time and when name changes were allowed I was so psyducking excited about being able to finally have it as a username because it was being wasted otherwise. I don't think I will ever change it again because I missed it too much last time I changed from it.

Easy, Luxray is my favourite pokemon! When I created my account, I was 13, so there wasn't much thought put into it. If I had created my account today, four years later (which is the day I actually started using this forum), then I probably would've thought of something more imaginative/unique, lol :)

On Xbox Live, I was originally Yami Slifer, then before that SiN Corona. I chose Yami Slifer because YuGiOh and I wasn't that creative, so yeah, I was young and blah.

Then I decided to go with a more matured and legit name. Sector Revenge came to mind, so I went with it, and love it ever since. Hence, where Sector came from.

I just came up with Sector and I wanted a secondary name, or as I would like to call it, a last name for my online identity. True story, I was looking at Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and I put 2 and 2 together. Sector Revenge!

Another name I would like to have if not Sector, is actually Saber Reprisal. I think it's pretty sexy imo x) Yeah, people call me Sextor here or at other places so Sextor is somewhat my name as well if you want to call it that.
