TeeArctic1
One fateful day I decided that I needed a proper alias online. That the days of self-loathing due to names I made as 9 years old would come to an end.

Thus, I sat down and I thinked aahard about it.

I live up north, close to the arctic circle. So I decided, I would include Arctic in my name. I was also from Norway, which has a history of Vikings. Thus came the tragedy that was xXArcticVikingXx...Keep in mind that I was only 11 or 12 at this time.

Sometime after I started using this horrible name, I made an account in an MMO, can't remember which one. I made my character and joined a guild. Nobody bothered to type my full name, so they just called me Arctic. Simple and precise. After that they decided to introduce me as 'The Arctic One' to new guildmates. Which then became 'The Arctic 1', which due to a misspell then became TeeArctic1. And I liked it. So therefore, my name is now TeeArctic1. Were I ever to have multiple accounts, my second would probably be named TeeArcticToo.

walkro
Runescape, lmfao. It was first suggested to me as Walkrobeart and it kinda stuck with me as I played different games. I sometimes play with shortened versions of my username like this one... Walkro or walkrooh. I also found out not to long ago Walkro comes from a company that produces rice somewhere in Germany... So that's that. I found it kinda funny cause I'm Asian and like.... You know... Username and the company... I'll stop lmao. :o

Ryu Sei
I don't have an idea. The name is suddenly appears in my mind after obtaining my very first supporter tag.
Safyire
I did a thing where I took the word "sapphire" and screwed it up so bad it looks good

Pokemon Sapphire is my #1 favorite game of all time aside from osu! and I thought a regular word like "sapphire" was too bland. So I...butchered the spelling?

Still ticks me off how people pronounce my username like "say-fy-yur" and not like, the word it actually came from.

Original name was - R u r i -, I got it from Oreimo's Gokou Ruri.

Just changed the spelling to make it a bit more original.

I kinda regret this username though, it's too girly.
