How Did You Get Your Screen Name?

Reading another discussion I saw lots of interesting names out there, and I wanted to know how you came up with yours. I use Kat-aclismic as a pun to my name (Kat) as well as a reflection of the never ending trouble hunt that got my into Duolingo in the first place. What's your story? I'd love to hear it!

Fine, ONE last post for 2017. Just for fun.

My mom created this account, so I kinda have a rough idea why she chose this name. Leif is my real name (shhh!!!), and my nickname is Leifer, and my last name begins with a B (shhh!!! again), so she put them together and made LeiferB.

If I created this account, I would have SupersonicXD1 as my name.

Why? When I was like, 9, I was trying to think of a screen name for myself other than LeiferB or something like that for a game called Trackmania Nations Forever, and I was like, "Why not SupersonicXD?". Looking back, I don't really know why I chose that name. I kinda liked the Sonic The Hedgehog games, so I'm guessing that's why I chose the "Supersonic" part of my name, but now I realized that I didn't really like Sonic at the time! I actually liked Silver The Hedgehog more than Sonic. And the "XD" part? I really liked Disney XD because it had Phineas and Ferb on it, so yeah.

Oh, now you're wondering about the "1" part, right? Well I have one thing to say to you:

W E A R E N U M B E R O N E

No, I didn't add the one because I really like that meme. Not that I'm hating on Robbie Rotten or anything. I love that meme!

But anyways, when I was 11, I got Minecraft for the first time, and my dad made the account, and he put a one at the end of the username because someone already took "SupersonicXD" already, so I guess he just added a one to make my username complete with a number! So yeah!

That was waaaaaaaay longer than it needed to be...

Zatfel is just the first three letters of my surname + the first three letters of my first name because I like how they look written together. That's it.

Skyflakes is a brand of saltine crackers that's popular in the Philippines. My mom is from the Philippines but I grew up in the US. About 10 years ago, a Filipino grocery store opened up near me and one of the first things we bought from there was a big plastic container of skyflakes crackers. When we finished the crackers, my mom saved the container and used it to hold small things in the garage. She put a label on it that says "nuts & volts." What she meant was "nuts & bolts," but v's and b's sound the same in her accent so she often misspells words like this. I thought that a recycled skyflakes container with that spelling error on it was the perfect symbol of my culture so I use it in a lot of my usernames.

Fun thread idea! Mine means "Night cherry blossom princess" in Japanese. As for why I picked it. I know Japanese and one of my favorite words is "night cherry blossom" because I went to a night cherry blossom event in Japan and it was so pretty, I really loved it. They put lights on all the cherry blossom trees and it kind of reminded me of Christmas tree decorations, but with pink and white cherry blossom trees. :) "Hime"/"princess" was added because "Yozakura" was taken and I didn't want to add a number, so it ended up being the first thing I thought of.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LasCicatrices

I heard a Spanish cover of the famous song "Stitches" and one of the lines said "Tengo cicatrices" (I have scars). I then changed my name to "LasCicatrices" (the scars) because somehow the name "TengoCicatrices" was taken on a lot of different websites. Not too interesting of a story, but yeah, I got it from a Spanish cover haha.

black panther is the king of wakanda so I thought why not I just do "King_Of_Beasts"?
