    Default :-? Inquiring Minds Want To Know .. How you chose your screen name :yesyes:

    my wonderful partners in crime .. umm I mean Supz

    Have you ever seen a screen name and thought to yourself
    "Self, I wonder how this person chose their screen name and what it means?"


    I have, I have!
    But only because of my terrible curiosity. If I was a I would have run out of lives aaages ago!

    So, I'll start

    My name was Melanippe until just recently. It's the Welsh? Cornish? aww I forget now Anyway, one of those alternate name for the Celtic Goddess Epona the Goddess of Horses (among other things ) Not that I'm a goddess or anything, but I have a passion for horses and Celtic things as well as the unique, so it was a perfect fit for me!

    My name changed to recently for two reasons:
    1. I am the new Shoutbox Mod and wanted to make sure everyone knows im there the same as other mods but uniquely me!! (I think I mentioned liking unique and they said had to go somewhere else. You can visit him on my profile anytime.
    2. Because nooobody ever called me that anyway It was always Mela, Mel, M and a few others thrown in occasionally

    Now, just because my story is long doesn't mean yours has to be but it can also be longer than mine Just share your story your way but pleeeeeze share my curiosity can't take it much longer!!






    This thread was inspired by a very special wb who loves choco

    I used to have a longer name but after a couple of months of being here, I also changed it to something short... because nobody called me like that anyway... they called me Bad or BA. :P And besides it represents my charming personality.
    And I thought your partner in crime was Honey?

    Mela's Avatar

      it's always a good idea to have more than one partner it crime so you have more options to go or he But Honey is Thelma to my Louise or maybe the choco with my cookies yeah, probably that one And your name is do
    es not represent your charming personality but sweet is already taken for sharing

    but I was also called only with the shorter version so I have chosen this version

    My nick was Sexy Mexican Maid, because that's the name of a song from Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and they were my favorite band once... I chose the nick about 10-15 years ago I think, and it just kinda stuck

    Now I'm Sexy Cow, because that's what everyone calls me here

    People also call me just "Sexy", but to use that as my nickname seems kind of raunchy

    Mela's Avatar

      yours was definitely one I was It seems others end up choosing our names for us after a while you could pull off the Sexy though with that cow though for sharing

    Before, Im a big fan of the anime "fairytail" and there's this character named "gajeel" I find him very cool with his metal powers. That time, I also play a web-based game (my first online game ) and the admin used the username "mister_gadget" I admire him because he always helps the struggling players and keep the game smoothly. Sadly now, the game is almost dead . ( hopefully the game recovered with the declining of its players)

    So I combine gajeel + gadget = gadgel . Since then I used my username to almost all of my accounts (fb, twitter etc.)

    Mela's Avatar

     I think it's cool when there's a special meaning behind a name like yours for someone you admire. I can't imagine what mine would be if I tried to do that with the people I admire here at supz is it okay if I still call you Mr G .. much easier for me to type for sharing

    Well my name is what it is because it always used to irritate me when I had to change the name I put into website registrations because someone already had that name . So I put down a name nobody would choose.
    In the forgotten realms setting the speciality priests of the former lesser deity of tyranny,fear and hatred ,Iyachtu Xvim, were called Authlims of Xvim. They despised weakness in others and would not heal other people

    I have however spoiled this convention by letting my brother use it for accounts (because its either my credit card he's using or my fathers) ,so its actually very rare for AuthlimofXvim to actually be me anymore at least when it comes to games. Its only random forums where I can't be bothered to get the name changed
    And if your wondering why my brother would need to use my account name its because both he and my bf's brother are the sort of people who forget/misplace logins and passwords or are too lazy to look for them. They are the sort of people who would use 123456 as a password because its "easier" . Its no wonder that they're friends

    Mela's Avatar

      can I use your accounts too I have to admit, it took me the longest time to figure out that it was Authlim of Xvim it does help when the screen name is unusual .. I've never had any problems with Melanippe either for sharing I'll never tell that you have a g___y side

     My brother always, *always* asks me for his passwords if it doesn't just auto login. He's too lazy to see if its been stored on his computer.

     Then I go, "I wrote it down on a pice of paper too." and his reply is: "I threw it away" or "I lost it". So he just uses accounts I make up to preserve my sanity

     it's a good thing you love your brother ... and any sanity he saves you is probably lost again here

    Wow.. It's so cool to see very interesting stories behind all your usernames..

    As for mine...

    Back then when I registered here, I was an avid anime/manga addict (not much now, though. ). And, I'm sure most, if not all, anime/manga addicts have their own preferred Japanese names, it was the same for me, but "Shirayuki" is a very special name.

    I didn't handpick it per se, but it sort of came out of my jumbled mind.

    When I was in Grade school thousands of years ago, I was still a newbie anime fan and I was watching this anime on TV. While it was on commercial, I was thinking "If I had an anime name, what would it be?" Now the internet wasn't a very popular means of search engine for me back then, so I had to come up with my own. So within the span of 3-5 minutes of TV ads, my mind was able to jumble out the word "Shirayuki" and I don't know how it came up with it. I sort of liked it and then it stuck. I was "Shirayuki" in another dimension.. When I became more addicted to anime (and finally discovering yaoi), it was the time when I started spending more and more time on the internet. I soon found out that Shirayuki was a legit Japanese name literally meaning White (Shira or Shirou) Snow (Yuki). I was so happy to discover the name even before finding it online and knowing it was a legit name, so it became very special to me that I used it across MMORPG accounts or other anime/manga sites.. I always thought it was destiny.. And a lot of anime talked about fate/destiny and whatnot, so it was a great sign.. I never requested it to be changed since then even if people kept calling me Shira..

    That's my trip down memory lane..

    My story, is not so fun guys. But here it is. It may not be so good as yours but it's mine an mine alone
    So now prepare for long long story. or better go away before you hear this crazy story. still with me? But you were alerted about reading this.
    A many years ago (ok, not so many but who would keep track of them), in a far away land in a place called Internet (or global net or how you choose to name it) a small lonley soul, sweet and innocent, came to the big castle. Since the weather was really bad (it was rainy night nad was really really cold) and she heard the laught of the people which were in the castle she wast trying to find some kind to doors to came in. And when she find them, the watchman ask her about her name. But since she was small and lonelly she choose for hereslf a strong, nice name based on some bad guy from a story she was told some times ago.
    And this is a story about how I choose Nakaro...
    Ok, I'm joking
    In fact... I... hm...
    don't remember
    But seriously. I was trying to find a nice good looking name for moi.
    Thank you


    I hope you like this story :
