    Why did you decide to call you in this way?
    Say what inspired you to choose your name

    I chose "Braig" because it's the anagram of "Gabri" that in italian is the diminutive of my name that is Gabriel.

    What about you?

    I had several name changes so I'll also tlak about them.

    Frostblade = I took two random words that I think sounded cool
    ArnoDorian = I used to be a big fan of Assassin's Creed
    nxwing = Taken from Nightwing. Replaced the "ight" with an "x". Also made the first letter small

    I signed up as Darmanitan, that 5th gen poke.

    Had it changed to Lucifer without knowing who that is because it sounded cool. The supervisor said it was taken so he had to add a bunch of numbers. I told him to do whatever he wanted, and lo and behold, my username is the most satanic of the lot.

    It was my first username ever, which I got with my first dialup, and it just stuck with me. Mostly because I couldn't come up with a better username.

    Because Kingdom Hearts is my favourite franchise ever (it's supposed to be pronounced like ''The Element K H'')
    Also it's all in capital letters because why not?

    Mine's stuck with me since the AOL/Dial up days - mum says I used to call myself 'muffy' as a tot (my real name is Matthew) and used to be a fan of Mightymouse, soooo, after umpteen attempts at creating an AOL username I ended up with this and had it ever since.

    it's a mix of my 2 first names, first 2 letters and my last name. It sounded nice so I kept it. But I also use some other usernames, like DG. That's the only 2 consonants of my first name

    It's the title of a book I enjoyed reading. And I felt it was fitting for a name.

    Jackus because my name is Jack. Imaginative right?
    Chose it as a child and it stuck for ages. Except now I don't like it because reasons and I don't really want my real name so clear like that. (Those are personal reasons to be specific)

    Thus everywhere else my identity has been changed to "Seriel" but apparently I can't get a name change here because I've been a member for a year and have 2k+ posts :|

    It's a mix of my first and Last name. I use this username for everything but a few other things.

    I quickly needed some HomePass help, this wasn't taken. I regret it now though. So unoriginal!

    Chose mine simply because I like 8-bit art/games. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
