    Hey all,

    I didn't know if there was a thread like this (if there is I couldn't find it).

    I'm curious though! Why did you choose the IGN you have? To be funny? Because it has a special meaning? You made it when you were 12 and have an attachment to it? It just sounds cool?

    Talk about however many you have that you want to!

    _____Why I chose mine_____
    Aromanticism - It's a beautiful word and it's also the name of the debut album by Moses Sumney and it's absolutely incredible.

    Farewell
    - My personal favorite word to say--also the title of my senior exhibition that I had to curate when I was in college.

    Limerence
    - It's just pretty!

    I had the name Rokillers back in 2012 in roblox. It sounds pretty cool to me.
    Fown - People in GMS always referred to me as Fown because it was something like “FownoftheML” and I like it.
    Dumbisland - Dumb island can’t escape
    Leo400 - this one is for sedimental value as it was my first character in GMS back in 2008.
    Yepiskop - Means Bishop in Russian and I really want to learn Russian.

    NiseONE / NisseONE: its a twist on the japanese word "nisemono" which means fake (mono = ONE)
    1. Cus I legit faked my way through university (dunno anything I studied LOL)
    2. Also I'm low key obsessed with the idea of whats the difference between "the real thing and an indistinguishable fake" (does it even matter if it was fake, if you can't tell it apart?)

    People always think my name is based on digimon, but it's not.
    It started with me watching an Anime called Code Lyoko when I was younger, some 10 years ago.
    One of the ending credits used a song made by the fictional band Subdigitals and I liked the tune.
    I adopted that name at first as my online username but over time it changed into superdigital, which felt too long so then some time later it turned into superdigi.
    And some years ago it became the final product: cyberdigi
    ... and no, I will not use capital letters

    Yatayata - which is commonly known as Yatte is a Japanese word for "I did it!" I have been using this name since GMS.

    Pastelle - I like bright colors so pastelle is a play on the word Pastel.

    Sporkl - A meme of sorts for the Sparkling Emoji in maple. It is a word we used a lot and it just happened not to be taken.

    ToastNomster - Do I need to explain this one?

    I wanted to cosplay a minor character in a relatively obscure story.
    In the six months I've played this character, I haven't found anyone who recognized the cosplay.
    EDIT: 217 days later, on April 13th, I've met someone who started reading the story because he saw this post. Thanks stranger.

    All my characters (takoEri, takoUmida... basically anything with lowercase "tako" at the beginning) started as a combination of suffix "tako" (octopus in Japanese, no real purpose for the name) combined with whatever joke of the day. It's a habit I've kept since starting this naming strategy when I was playing MapleSEA. It served no purpose other than to create a common identity among my characters, a trend I picked up from pre-bb forums. It eventually seeped into my other username naming conventions inasmuch as almost everyone in the online world refer to me as "tako".

    As for individual characters, takoUmida is tako plus Sonoda Umi (da) from Love Live, and takoEri is based on Ayase Eri.

    My HS mule, takoFumika, is named after Sagisawa Fumika from Idolm@ster Cinderella Girls. My HB, takoGundam, needs no explanation...
