    Talking What does your username mean?

    We all have some sort of story to our usernames, whats yours?

    I've had about 3 usernames. My first ever username was "Crazy Animator", that was the username I came up with when I joined my first online forum called "Hyuns Dojo"(It's a forum about Animation and Art, mostly animation). The reasoning behind "Crazy Animator" was that, at that time, I was a super hyper and excitable kid(10 or 11 years old I believe?) And in my my mind, I thought I was "Crazy", I added the animator part and badabing badaboom, I had my first username.

    The second username is "BopTheRobot". This one didnt particularly have any meaning, it was just something new I made up, because I had grown tired of the username "Crazy Animator"

    The third, and hopefully the last username I have is "Keus". After around a year of using "Boptherobot" I kind of got tired of it, and even though it was less cringey then "Crazy Animator", I still didn't particularly like it. And so I began to think up another Username. After a few days of thinking, I had come up with the name "Keus". Well, actually, I wasn't the one who came up with it. My parents did. You see my mother and father originally wanted to name me "Keus", but they changed their mind and decided on another name. So yeah, that's the name I go by now. Its on almost all my social medias.

    When I made this account, I was going through a weird fascination w/ pop music, and I picked the name based on scrolling through my iTunes playlist (lol iTunes) and looking at band names.

    Now it feels like an unfortunate tattoo I got while drunk. Still gonna keep it though.

    Mine's my actual name because I couldn't get the sign up to work, so I had to use my Google account.

    It's kind of lame and long story, but to put it short oneperson became my nickname because of my family with chore duties...
    And then I changed one into Una in Latin--I don't know if it is correct though, I used google translate--and Person into Jin in Japanese ウナ人

    I randomly looked through a dictionary one time and found this cool word - vulgar. My personality isn't vulgar but I like the word and stuck with it.

    Dpaint animator was the first program I used working in games to do art. It preceded a commercial version of photoshop.

    My username means 'high voltage' in German. I've taken it because one of my major interests lies in history of electricity and transmission lines in particular. It's in German because I like how it sounds (also because many historical books I came across on this matter are in German).

    David_a_ray was a sort of nickname I had as a kid. My first name is David my middle name is Ray. My dad's family all lives up around Kansas City. I was raised in Texas. When I went to visit as a kid and introduced myself, they found my hick accent funny and they all just started calling me Davidahraaay.

    One night my dad took me out into the pasture. I don't know what he was doing or why I came along. I went with him everywhere though. He had me stand inside what was basically a round metal frame that the cows could stick their heads through and eat hay. It was dark, they couldn't see me and he figured I'd feel safe from the giant cows in there while he went off to do whatever he was doing. (Not mushroom hunting I assure you; far too good a Christian for that!) He'd been gone for awhile and I saw large dark shapes approaching my hiding place. I was surrounded. My hands were shaking. One of them poked there head in. I did the only thing I could do. I yelled "BOO!" One cow fell to the ground; fainted I guess. The cattle stampeded in what I later learned was the direction of my father. I remember on the walk home he was very angry with me, but as soon as we got in the house and he began relating the story to my mother, they both burst out laughing.

    Yep.

    The best way to hunt in a mushroom forest is to climb on the back of a butterfly.

    For some reason I thought "William" spoken by the female japanese google translator voice was a great idea for my nickname.

    It is simple but Al Fair is sort of my name. Alexandra being my first and Fair being my could-have-been middle name.

    My username's just a combination (albeit with slight modification) of my first and last names. I wanted to claim "rainer" as my username, but that was unavailable. "rainer" because I really appreciate the works of Rainer Maria Rilke. Plus, I think Rainer is a really cool, ominous-sounding name.
