Where did your username originate from?

Most of my usernames/nicknames on various places of the internet are weather/nature related. I like the sunrise, so I decided to choose a username that reflected it.
i was thinking of a name to use for a throwaway spam gmail, when i somehow came up with tgnehs
my last name is shen, so i took that and flipped it over to get nehs.

the tg stands for "that guy", as i was called by my friends as "that guy shenpai" in public (ahh my friends are weebs). turns out tgnehs looked pretty unique and collected that i used it as my main.

meh, it sounds better than my old usernames TheShadows3dge and 5H33P_H473R
from my passion :^
my Chinese name called Wang zishen,and i was called Wandown in English...and I have to.say it's strange
so I got a strange idea:to use my name in chinglish(half of Chinese,half of English):zison
zison reads just like zishen in chinese..
I once read a Manga and one of the main characters name was Rai.

I was playing online games back then and the name Rai was taken. So I chose Xirai sounds nice and used that.

But in some games Xirai was also taken, so in some games I am known as Xirain. The "Irritant" / "lightly acid" rain, which is fun, cause I am working a lab and I know that Xi is short for irritant...
Mine came from a weapon from one of my favourite games, Bloodborne(specifically from The Old Hunters DLC). It means "Falling Leaf" and thought that It'd be a nice name go by. Also because I originally wanted to use "Naikou"(meaning Introvert and how I usually go by) but someone else already took it so Rakuyo it is.
My name is kind of my real name .. My name is Marco sooooo I thought MarcoPolo sounds funny and there it is _MarcoPolo =)
It's really easy to figure it out.
Everyone should be familiar to Solar Cell, which means "solar battery" :D I have a big impression to that word (and that source of electricity, probably) so I chose it to be my name.
And "27", hmm... 3x3x3. Illuminati confirmed :D
Compose these things, and we have "SolarCell27".
I liked the name Moko and my nickname is Kobe so it goes hand in hand
Not from rafis
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)
I love Killua so...
I tried to write "profile" really fast.
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.
my cat's nickname
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?
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.
only mushroom comes up when i think about favorite vegetable
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. :)
My new user Is that_one_emo_skid how did i got it from my Cousin kept on calling me a skid that's all.
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.
