"What is the meaning behind your username?"

I always wanted to ask this, I hope you don't mind me asking this! I can see a lot of interesting usernames in my watchlist, is there any hidden meaning behind it? :3

I'm not sure if you want to know about mine, but someone asked me why I choosed a very terrible username! LOL! Who want to use a deadly and scary 'virus' as a nick? I wish I can change it! I really do! but it's too late now!
Virus. Simply because I want to spread my arts to the world!! OMG it's sound soooo cheesy isn't!!! theehee! ^^

AC74 is not necessary! But since Virus is taken so this is the fun part, I wanted to make it sounds like a 'Virus' name, So I did some researched on Google what is the creative alphabet and interesting numbers!
but everytime someone asking me what is AC... it's Advent Children! LOL, no! I'm kidding! AC is for...*whatever you can think for >3*

So what's yours?^^

well,someone called me "elba" on internet but that's not my real name,and meh
I fail at choosing usernames for my pages so I decided to put this as mine on here.
DarkAngel8980 Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
mine comes from the fact that if I could be any fantasy creature, I would be a dark angel (black wings, black dress/clothes, black halo) and 8980 just sounds pretty (that and I like 8 and 9) I use this username everywhere because I love it so much but my alternatives are: FallenAngel8980 DarkAngel98980 or FallenAngel98980 :P
Ares2737 Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2010
Ares is one of my OC that I've created when I was at 15 or 16. Ares is also the name of the god of war according to the Greek mythology. 2737 is actually ares. Look at your phone number and you will notice that 'a' is at number 2, 'r' and 's' is at number 7 and 'e' is at number 3.

Lame? Yes, definitely!:blush:

I was standing near a window during the "before" of a rain/storm and the wind was damn strong and was so refreshing.I imagined the leaves in the wind were mint and thought of the name.i actually used this user name for my blog before i came to deviantart
xuedian Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2010  Student Artist
I wanted to name myself xuehua (meaning snowflake) but somehow I failed and wrote xuedian... wich could mean stain of blood ... I hope, but since my chinese is not the best... more like the worst I'm still not sure... :(
I'm still afraid of a chinese speaking random user coming to me and shouting "what does this strange word mean? Did you try to be cool by using a chinese fake name !?!" T_T
Rixusaku Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2010

Tecnido Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2010
lol mine has a secret meaning. But it's more obvious to Norwegian, Swedish and Danish people than the rest of the world. *chuckles*

It simply means "I Do Love Drawing". <3
Arucelli Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2010  Student Digital Artist
i made this user because the day i made my account, was the day my older sister left for college. i did this in memory of her pretty orange iPod, so that when she isn't here, i can still think of her.


:iconbunnyloveplz: <---- just for fun! ^^ i love these icons that only DA can provide.
CruzianRain Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2010  Hobbyist Photographer
I had a really hard time coming up with my name, and while I was making my account I was also reading The Song of the Lioness quartet, (which I love, btw!) and saw that the name of one of the tribes in the book was called the Sunsetdragon tribe, and I thought that sounded so beautiful....1315 are just my favorite numbers, so there you have it. :D
sae85 Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2010
i always thought "AC74" was Armored Core + random numbers/your robot :lol:

im not original with names. its just my name and b-day year =P
pretty simple and boring~ lol
Mnemesyne Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
mnemesyne comes from the goddess of memory. I love history and was thinking up a new, memorable username for DA because I was leaving my old site, eryntheelf, behind.

So I did some research and voila!
Soul-Mirror Featured By Owner May 27, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Gaaah x__X I forgot to answer here *inbox was flooded* Sorry ;_;

And now to your question
I have two facts because of my username: The first one is that I had an other account on dA. I disliked the name after a while and you can't change your username here, therefore I created a new one.

The second and more important point:
My life was very difficult in the last 2 years and I had seen no change to the better and this last two years influenced my charakter. After it became a bit better I had problems to discover who I really are. The old one, the new one, a mixture?
I had to see in the mirror of my soul and therefore I took this name as my new username, so that I never forget about this two years and that they changed a lot. They made the new me, a mixture of the old and the new one and retrospectively I'm very proud of the experience I've made.
lolaandjane Featured By Owner May 20, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Lola sounds like sexy girl name ... for me this is the freedom name...and Jane Is because of Jane Eyre ... LolaandJane is the personification of free girls ^^
strange isn't it? :))
Falryu Featured By Owner May 15, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
I usually use two usernames. My older Falryu and my more established username Falmung. I was planning on combining two words from the things I liked so went with fal which I changed from balmung and added it to ryu which is the japanese word for dragon. I decided to change it because some US players on Xbox Live would have tongue jamming trying to pronounce it. I later changed it to Falmung. Falmung comes from Balmung. Balmung is also known as Gram, the legendary sword wielded by Siegfried and known as the equal of the excalibur. With the sword, Siegfried defeated the evil dragon Fafnir and bathed in his blood becoming almost immortal except for the leaf that fell on his back blocking a spot where the blood could not touch. Also I'd like to add which is pretty much contradictory to my previous username. Balmung is known as the dragon slayer. Its made specifically for killing dragons.

Wether I'm hunting dragons or liking dragons, I have great respect for them and love them.
Ikiyouyou Featured By Owner May 11, 2010
My username comes from the time when I had just gotten back from my summer study abroad to China and Japan, and I was really proud and happy of what I'd done, cuz I'd always figured I'd never be one of those people that go on study abroads. It was such a blast, and I was kind of into Japanese music at the time, so I picked a word out of one of my favorite songs (from Pokemon lol) that I really liked the meaning of. Ikiyouyou means in high and proud spirits. And then it became the name of my rpg character for World of Darkness, cuz I couldn't think of anything else at the time XD. And now it's my nickname - first one I ever really had and I had to wait til college to get it. XD
Mikashi Featured By Owner May 4, 2010  Hobbyist
Mikashi was the name of my friend's OC, her personality was similar to mine, and well, I liked the name. So I stole it when I was trying to think up a name when I was signing up. Now I use it all over the space...unless if somebody else steals it first *cough*yahoo*cough*crunchyroll*cough*.
Vodka-chan Featured By Owner May 3, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Hmmm... I was looking for a nickname I could use on an anime/manga site... "Vodka" was inspired by Russia (Axis Powers Hetalia), my favourite character then. Plus I'm Polish, our vodka's the best 8D And the sufix "chan" because it's cute and nickname Vodka is usually in use on all sites. Too bad. :<
Making-Kill-Toyz Featured By Owner May 3, 2010
I was reading the Umbrella Academy and there was a line about the villain having a killer robot and then an interviewer asking what it does and he goes "It kills people!". I like that a lot and some time after that I saw a wall that had the words 'makes' and 'toyz' on it. I remembered the comic and I came up with Making-Kill-Toyz. I love it!
Bvanis Featured By Owner May 3, 2010
vanis is my middle name. yeah i have weird names, blame my weird parents. B is the second letter of the alphabet.
SakuSephi Featured By Owner May 4, 2010  Student

It's in Memories of Idhun
Bvanis Featured By Owner May 8, 2010

Windsong98 Featured By Owner May 3, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
mine was because a few years ago me and my friends made up characters (hybrids- half vampire, half werewolf)
as a rule they had to have a name like Windsong (me)
or my friends ones were Ravenfeather and Lonestar

the 9 is for demyx of organization 13 from kingdom hearts
and the 8 is for axel of organization 13 from kingdom hearts

they were my two favourite characters =D
Zemael Featured By Owner May 2, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think.. mine is the most well. Stupid one. XD;; ghost is for..well ghost. Duh. and Arin is my character. He's a young innocent boy who can see and control spirits, and stuff like that. He's my most detailed character with a huge heart, and is a part of me. So I thought ghostarin sounded so smooth together so.. yeah. :c nothing special unlike many others. XDD;;
MisteryStranger Featured By Owner May 2, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Errr, so MisteryStranger is spelled wrong, I know that, but its spelled half on my language, since MysteryStranger is always taken soo, I've been using it for a while. It is a nickname for one of characters in my first fiction or whatever.
The girl in the story called him My Mystery Stranger, ha ha, a pet name of sorts, ya know.
Reviniir Featured By Owner May 1, 2010  Professional General Artist
Well, 'Gibson' is my last name, and I sleep a lot, 'snore'. But I don't snore really XD. And '7' is just the shortened version of my favorite number. '723' :D I wish I could change it now though, hehe.
Darkfinity Featured By Owner May 1, 2010
>< BUT I LIKE UR NAME!!! That person has no imagination man.

Darkfinity - I guess I was feeling depressed when I made that name... k that was a lame explanation LOL haha

I wanted to come up with something mysterious and dark- something that has a vintage feeling I guess... not that my name has any vintage feeling to it. but I thought it sounded nice and it lived up to my standards so I used the name.
mreviver Featured By Owner May 1, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
"mreviver" is the shortened name of a manga I started yeeeaaars ago, called "Mythological Reviver". I think some people have mistaken me for a guy, by reading it as "mr. eviver", haha. I should have put a dot or hyphen in the name so that it would be read correctly, but this way looks better to me instead.
blood-of-the-bush Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2010
I like the idea for your name.

For mine, there are two possible explanations. The first is the fact that my nickname among my friends is "Thorn." It started in middle school when my friends and I decided we wanted nicknames simply because. They have carried on into high school and now my boyfriend has been given his own. Anyway, thorns on a rose or rosebush can draw blood. Therefore, blood of the bush.

Or, it can mean this: I used to have some form of belief that roses were the blood of the wounded earth. Like it was trying to tell us that we were hurting it with the waste we produce and everything we take from it in such mass amounts that it can't reproduce them quickly enough. But, the fact that it's a beautiful flower does not make us realize that the earth is crying out.
Kaiser-OWLHELM Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2010
It was actually someone else who named my Kaiser OwlHELM. Anyone familiar with Kaiser Wilhelm will jump on the reference right away.

Mainly, it had something to do with me speaking German and having an empire-like hold over a forum I [used] to go on. I was Queen of Owls on there back then, but I had such an empirical hold on the people there, the guy joked "next account is gonna be KaiserOwlhelm or something". I told him "See you in 3 months as that. ;)" He thought I was joking but... haha. It might have been something about building up a hefty army of defenders on the board [I hear the majourity of them sent complaints to mods when I was banned. The mods must have been swamped] rather like Wilhelm's naval fleet.

And I like Owls.
A lot.
I mean, I REALLY like owls.

So there you have it. Kaiser-OWLHELM.
Minor-Detail Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
Minor Detail is exactly what I am, a minor detail in the grand scheme of things. It's totally emo and whatnot, if you really think about it, but I was in an emo mood the day I made my account. I feel wise, knowing there's some depth to me <3
TonyLawliet16 Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2010
Tony = Tony Redgrave AKA Dante from Devil May Cry

Lawliet = L from Death Note

16 = Was actually supposed to be 18, but I messed up when typing it and didn't notice until after I had signed up. 18 is my lucky number!

serene its my middle names in English, Portuguese sereno...i had to cos there is someone already lunaheart, which is the one i wanted =)
CoraShirou Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2010
Cora it's a anagram for my real name, and also a name for a famous female poet from my Country.

Shirou it's the surname of Kamui, charachter from X/1999. I love him, and his is my imaginary husband. XD

(Hope me real husband don't get too mad with me =P)
Piggy-Flyer Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2010
I was obsessed with Invader Zim at the time and pigs are my favorite animal. The show had lots of pigs in it, even a flying one. So that's basically how my username came to be. It could also be tied to the saying "when pigs fly".
SinistrosePhosphate Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
This is an interesting question.

"Sinistrose" is the amalgam of "Sinister-" (Latin for "left-handed") and "-ose" (ending for "sugar" in organic chemistry). "Sinistrose" is a laft-handed sugar (or L-glucose) compared to the more abundant "dextrose" (right-handed sugar, or D-glucose) found in nature. Phosphate is a small chemical moiety that carries a negative charge that allows the sugars to dissolve in water much more readily.

In my day job, I deal with dextrose phosphate (in the form of IV drips) a lot. I consider my hobbies on DA my "night job". So, the theory is that since the day job uses a right-handed sugar, then the night job should be using a left-handed one. There's no official name for a left-handed glucose in popular use, so "Sinistrose" was born through the proper naming procedures. And I became "Sinistrose Phosphate".
Southern-Romeo Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2010
It was half inspired by my own character, Dominic Rivera. He represents the city of Orlando. (A Hetalia thing. Check out universalaphdr (the community) on Livejournal if you'd like to know more.)

The other half, it's simply about me. Though I'm a woman, I was trying to find an ironic name for myself. I am in no ways a Romeo or Juliet.
Plus, it just sounded cool. :P

Mine is due to a character I once played on D&D and then as I signed up to the Prince of Persia gaming it became Prince Karr... nothing too amazing I guess
angelielle Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2010
nice nick... now I know what your name means... :glomp: mine means angel of I just made that up... but it actually came from my real name "Michelle angelica" kinda mixed it up just a little... hence the name... angelielle

KiriM83 Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2010
Er.. simple name here. Kiri is my given name. :star: M is for Mikami, my surname. :star: 83 is for the year I was born. :star: So.. KiriM83 :star:

I also thought M83 was cool for the spiral galaxy and smoke grenade once I set the name. ^^;

I (am) Pimp Kitty Crystal! <3 Huzzah!
Friends called me pimp kitty Crystal in high school for some reason, so when I decided I needed a short username for just about everything.. that was it!
SomeCrazyHobo15 Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2010
Well, I got the idea for my username when I saw some homeless guy and well... he looked crazy? xD I don't know.

Then after I put the name SomeCrazyHobo, I added the 15 not because the name was taken (I invented it, don't let anyone tell you otherwise >_>), but simply because all my old usernames had 15 at the end.
Soiden Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2010  Hobbyist Photographer
I created Soiden (back in 2000) entirely from my mind, as a name for a fan-fictional character from StarCraft. Today, is still the name of a fictional character, not the same one, but from my own story I'm writing :3

A couple years ago I discovered 'soiden' means 'swamp' in finnish, LOL!
Ikenatsu Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
For me it's not original, it's one of my OC's name. I like the word "Kai" and wanted a warrior name. I just tried to mix up names and I finally choose Kaissalam at the end. =D
Ketherael Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
My username came from a "game of words" I did to create an account that had something unique since I have another account on DA. "Kether" comes from the original Keter (or kether) which means "Crown": Divine Will to create/Infinite Light of the Creator/the Hebrew name of God "Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh-I am That I am" in the Sephirot, at the Kabbalah; and "ael" is interpreted as a termination of a name of a demon I like "Samael" which means "The Desolation of God, or The Left Hand" in the Qliphoth.

Therefore, it is a duality of power, which I wanted to show ^~^. Anyway, I love this username, although sometimes confuse me with a guy

Sorry if the explanation was very extensive ^^;

Greetings =D

But now I realize that the words are actually true to my person; I can never be bothered saying more than I should, and I'm neutral minded about everything, or it's just very hard to disturb me.
