ZisonZishen
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..
so.zisonzishen
Xirai
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...
Rakuyo
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.
_MarcoPolo
My name is kind of my real name .. My name is Marco sooooo I thought MarcoPolo sounds funny and there it is _MarcoPolo =)
SolarCell27
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".
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. :)
EM0308407
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.
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.
