Mokobe
I liked the name Moko and my nickname is Kobe so it goes hand in hand
Not from rafis
l1mi
My first name on the Internet was my real life name but that was around 1995-96 and then the use of alias became more and more popular. This guy, I think it was a clan mate kept nagging at me that I had to get an alias. So one day when I launched q95.bat it said "loaded 1mb image" in the command lines and there it was. My very own alias. Laziest name pick ever.. you cant beat me there.

(q95.bat = single and muiltiplayer that featured multiplay over the impressive TCP/IP protocol)
(quake.exe = only singleplayer)
zKillock
I love Killua so...
Orofil
I tried to write "profile" really fast.
Gehnter
My username got inspired by my teacher in middle school. His real name is Gühnter Brettschneider (I got to a german school hence the name) But instead of just using Gühnter I changed it up to Gehnter. I use Gehnter as my username on almost everything.
magalphs
my cat's nickname
pentaqola
i combined pentagon and cola... then i just changed c to q... simple as that...
plus it has 4 syllables... and coca cola has 4 of them too so i think why not?
Acerbus
I was searching words in Latin and I picked the first one that sounded good to me, although I don't feel identified with the meaning of the word.
Regurus
only mushroom comes up when i think about favorite vegetable
Tenpii
It comes from Pie (way too common a word to use). I actually don't like names with numbers but I haven't come up with anything better. :)

Jackagate
I was 12 and making a PSN name and my dad spitballed a random combination of my first and last name and it stuck.

Thanks, Dad.
KayRift
I put the first letter of my real name "K" in a random generator and it gave me trash names. The best out of them was "Kay". It is basically the sound of the letter spelled out. I then put Kay into the generator and it just put a bunch of stupid words at the end such as "KayMeister" and "KaySpoon". I went down the list and chose the one that sounded easy to remember and could eventually lead to cool art work. Such as a rift opening up in the earth in the shape of a K. Rift means like a crack, split, or a break in something. So I went with KayRift because i would be able to bring it a lot of places and not have it be used by 100million people like my usual one is lol.

Inspired by the question from ztrot's interview on osu!talk: http://youtu.be/8COmLt0IBRs?t=54m38s[/notice:1337]
A bunch of times people will think of a username related to their childhood, whether they do it by intention or not. This is not always the case, however, some people chose theirs because they either liked the way it sounded or thought it was cool. Everyone is different, of course.


For me, I chose "drum drum" for a reason I don't entirely remember. But I believe it's based on my past fascination with drums of all sorts. When I was a child my grandmother bought me a cheap Indian drum which I loved a lot (and then it broke of course). Around middle school I had a Djembe drum that I loved to play a lot. And finally in High school my parents bought me an electric drum kit (which I never anymore use because it lacks a tom and doesn't sound that great). Now here I am playing Taiko on osu!, funny how life works.

DireWoof122
My username originated from me just liking the word "Dire" so I was like okay that'll be my username from now on and now this has been official for about three years now, almost everyone I've ever met and became friends with on the internet knows me as Dire. A few call me by my real name but that's it
DiscoDop
My current name comes from a song
https://youtu.be/BVLw59jxm-c?t=45s

Around 1:50 :
"DiscoDop regner inni bussen for å si det mildt"

Basiaclly translates to:
"Disco Dope (mdma, lsd ect) raining in my crib to put ut blunt"
Aidan
Literally my name
MisakiSakaki
Another!
My ship Kōichi and Mei's last name.
It's been 3 years since I have this username and I still love it!
When i turn support i'll think a similar ones.
Disappear
My old username, Yami Yami chan originates from the one and only To Love ru character Yami, and I was thinking of a name for my Xbox Live account years back. And apparently I thought of that and it was the best decision of my life cause everyone would be saying my name saying it's funny or cool or whatever. I would have other versions of this name like just Yami or what I use a lot more recently Yamisu~ which is a kind of a slang in Japanese where you would say your name and add "su" at the end of your name. In english it would kinda sound like someone sayings "name" here! or something like that.

Then I had depression and bunch of other garbage and changed my name to Disappear, not only liking HD at the time but how I felt at the time. Now Disappear has been another username I use to this day for other things. So I kinda switch between Yamisu, Yami Yami chan, and Disappear.
