What's the meaning behind your username?
I'm not sure if people have done this in the past, but I think it's really interesting to hear how people came up with their creative and unique usernames. I also love to hear stories. :D
My username doesn't at all relate to my real name (Alvin), but I just thought it sounded unique. Sort of like some light that was always there, but no could really find.
What do your usernames mean?
I originally went with a "bunny" because I saw some cool art of anthropomorphized bunny boys. So, I was momentarily "troublebunny" on an anime website chat until I got banned. I had to pick another username in order to return. :P
I chose my current username because "Usagi" means "bunny" in Japanese in honor of Usagi's character from the Sailor Moon in the manga/comic book. (The anime was not directed by the writer of the manga. I prefer her original characterization.) So, instead of choosing "bunnyboy" I changed "bunny" from English to Japanese. When I arrived on Duolingo, someone had already staked a claim on "Usagiboy", so, I put a 7 on it. I can't remember why though, considering yellow is not my favorite color. :P There were other reasons too, but, I can't recall them at the moment.
True about the syllable thing. It is rather satisfying. :D Oh, also I should probably clarify why I got banned. Kinda weird not to seeing as how I'm a mod here. A moderator over there was abusing their position to harass people and I called them out on it. They didn't like it and tossed me out, a couple of times. >.>
I love the sky. The fleecy, white clouds appears really attractive with the blue, and when it changes from night to day, it's a very breathtaking sight. My username, in fact, relates to the sky in a very simple way, actually.
The word "speir" (with accent mark, it's "spéir") actually means "sky" in Irish Gaelic, and it's been a nickname for me for quite a while now. The way sounds really grabs my attention, and I love the word! Initially, I had wanted to learn Irish, but French would've been much more convenient for me (which is why I'm learning it). When I first registered to Duolingo, I chose "Speir" as my username, but unfortunately, an inactive user was already taking the username. Instead of keeping numbers at the end, I added an underscore, although I'm not sure why.
Also, it was really neat to read the meaning of other users' usernames. :D
My name comes from two different things that I absolutely love: The Legend of Zelda and Dragon Ball Z.
The "Master Sword" part is from TLOZ and the "Z" part comes from DBZ (specifically the "Z sword"). It's not that unique, but I'm reluctant on changing it any time soon. ^ ^
It's quite unimaginative but I'll tell you. I wanted my username to be "Krtek" but it was already in use. I just added the initial letter of my name "João" which is the Portuguese equivalent of the name "John".
Krtek is this little cartoon mole in my profile picture and he's just adorable. He is of Czech origin but he is also fairly known in other Central European countries, Eastern Europe as well as some Asian countries.
I found out about it on my first trip to the Czech Republic in 2011 and I fell in love with him. Last year I got my first Krtek plushie doll and I would love to watch all the old episodes as well as the new ones in Czech.
It's not that interesting but I've been rapping as a hobby (I might make it a career) since I was just 11 or 12 and I've been trying to come up with a name. None of my friends really gave me a nickname since they just call me Deo (pronounced day-oh) which is short for Deogracias. I couldn't really decide on a cool name so one day I was listening to Big L (a great rapper who died in 1997) and decided to keep my name simple so I chose Big Deo.
