Mine comes from the story my mom told me to explain why I loved space so much.

Weird, I know, but it made me feel really special.

That is really sweet. Aww. Your mom sounds awesome.

Re: Your Username...

Soukougnan...

it's uncommon, and long. few people know what it means. it's rather unique. this is why i chose it, and used it for years. it's also why i need to go back and erase my identity from MANY MANY websites. "<< and for the record, every Soukougnan you see on the internet isn't me. ...just most of them.

it's actually a reference to a book whose title i've long forgotten. it was about black people living in Haiti around 200 or so years ago. one of the characters that struck me was a woman who people thought was a witch, or some even said a soukougnan.

"Soukougnan" is the word they used in the book, for an elderly woman that people think is spooky, who--during the night--takes off her skin, and floats around as something like a flying skull, to suck the souls of people. It made me think of some kind of vampire, and i loved it.

i can't for the life of me find anything to link you to but THIS.
i used to be obsessed with vampires, you see. ever since i was in elementary school. i started reading Anne Rice in my very early teens, and gobbled up every piece of literature on the matter i could come across. i have many many books about vampires, and i suppose it's still a little bit of an obsession for me. hn. just occurred to me that i don't know what i'd choose if it came between giving up vampires or SKU. ><

well, anyway, uhm, that's why eventually i chose the name Soukougnan. it doesn't obviously give away my gender, it's  not obviously vampire-related, and i like to say it. heh!

and for the record, i don't like Twilight. v_v

Re: Your Username...

Necrooooooed. Just a little bit.

Apparently "Naji" is a male Arabic name meaning "survivor" and "Minkin" is an extinct Australian Aboriginal language. I thought they were just nonsense words!

Does that make me the only surviving speaker of Minkin, somehow? Maybe I was led to this username because of some greater purpose wherein it is my destiny to revive both the dialect (the knowledge of which is somewhere deep within me) and the sleeping souls of my fellow Minkin brethren so that we may rise up and conquer, enlighten, revolutionize and otherwise generally crack the shell of this, our rightful planet. And that time when I looked at the misty woods and just knew that I was supposed to be wandering through it with skins on my feet and a spear by my side was in fact a flashback to my former life as that survivor, the last of the Minkin clan! My disturbingly strange dreams are in fact auguaral messages from The Beyond! The feeling like I didn't belong, my inexplicable desire to combine radishes with chocolate and have it taste good even though it never does... It all makes sense now! The lost ancient prophecies will come to fruition! I am the slayer!

With only a little poetic licence, NajiMinkin in Japanese could be spelled 馴染明金, which would mean, with slightly more poetic license, "the intimate friend bathed in golden light."

Re: Your Username...

Accidentally making up a name that means something bad in another language is an on-going fear on mine, but it certainly is nice when it turns out to mean something neat!

Using the name Razara for has given me an unnatural liking for any names that go consonant-a-consonant-a-consonant-a. I saw the name "Nanaya" on a different forum and immediately thought it sounded really cool. ._.

Re: Your Username...

I read Hesse's Steppenwolf  and really liked it. Hermine is one of the most inspiring characters I've encountered. (Along with Egwene al'Vere and Maria von Trapp of all people.)

It's also the name I use in my German class, so it just popped into my head.

And so you could say I want to be a prostitute and get stabbed school-devil But that would be oversimplifying.

consonant-a-consonant-a-consonant-a

Yes! I tend to like anything with a lot of the same vowel and I love the letter z. So, I really like your username, Razara emot-dance

Re: Your Username...

I already explained the origin of my forum name earlier in this thread, but the question I would like to post to everyone is:

What other names/handles/IDs do you go by on the internets; now and in the past?

Mine includes: Infamous Tamago, Calyx Asgard and Night Spade.

In the past, I used handles like Kaosanova and Spatula Boi but that was at least 5 years ago since I last used those names.

So what other names/handles/IDs do you go by on the internets; now and in the past?

Re: Your Username...

My name is relatively easy to understand. I love the band Queen [something about men with long hair and tight pants...mmm], and though Killer Queen isn't exactly my favorite song, it's incredible and relates to the other back-story for my name. You know those assholes--i.e. my mother--who always ask, "Who died and made you king/queen of the world/universe?" Well...I killed whoever has the power to appoint one as such. Thus, the Killer Queen of the Universe. Cake.

Ick. My previous usernames were all contrived when I was much younger, so they're all embarrassing disasters like "anksquirrel" and I won't even go there. Fuck 12-year-old me.

ETA: Were I to choose another name to go by, it would be Charlie-in-the-Box. My nickname happens to be Charlie, and a silly Misfit Toys tribute. ["Nobody wants to play with a Charlie in the box!"]

Re: Your Username...

I stole it from Base Ball Bear's song Wink Sniper.  Personally, I don't like the song that much but the title kicks much ass.  It's been my username almost everywhere for like two years.  There are only a few places that some other J-Rock listening-to motherfucker has it before me.  Sometimes, I'll make an account somewhere with the name "winksniper" and then delete the account, then come back some time later and can't reclaim the username. :/

...well it started on Gaia years ago, and it just kind of stuck. I remember there being a boy who was always trying to hack me, but wasn't able to spell very well, I created a new account with that name, and an outrageous password...

It's funny though, this isn't a handle I use often...in fact I only ever use it here and at gaia (and because I don't go there anymore, mostly just here)...

my usual sn's are anthy_utena and arisugawa. Odd how such fitting names didn't get chosen for IRG  emot-confused
'getmiso' is also one of my favorite standby's.

EDIT

As a side note, my most interesting names are Juri's Yuri Fantasy on a j-club wiki and Arisugawa the Dominatrix on Skype.....

Re: Your Username...

Quite simple reasoning here. I like cherries. Not just to eat, I like them as a pattern or decoration, in much the same way some people like stars or love hearts or flowers or something.
There's a whole long load of stuff about the symbolism of cherries, mainly that they represent female sexuality, but I don't consider that anything to do with my username, or my fondness for the fruit. I read somewhere that they are also a symbol off immortality in some cultures, that's usually the reason I give if asked. :P
On most forums or games and such, I go by Killer Cherry (or Killah Cherry) because...well, back when I first started World of Warcraft, I needed a character name, decided I wanted a cherry-themed one, so I thought about all my cherry-themed possessions...and I had a top by Killah with cherries on, so...Killer Cherry was born and stuck! Kinda a dumb story really! xD
I don't know why I kept the "killer"part out when I registered for IRG.

Re: Your Username...

Hah. My username is a little awkward, because I didn't even think of the possibility of coming off as really pretentious until after I'd picked it. It's Latin, which I make no pretensions to knowing, so the grammar could be off, but to the best of my knowledge it means "I read therefore I am." (The verb form lectito resembles cogito, as in "cogito ergo sum," so it's probably conjugated right.)

Definitely an accurate statement for me, though, so I like it. emot-smile

Re: Your Username...

Long story short:

I used 'Kosh' online for a long time, after the Babylon 5 character. Then I realised a lot of people used this online, so it's hard to register to new forums with it.

I wanted a new nick, around the same time as I started my gender transition. Which was new = Nova. So now it's like, got 'kosher' there in the middle, somehow. I mean, I'm half jewish, but I ain't kosher and that wasn't the intent. Still, got a good ring to it, so I stuck with it emot-smile

I heard the name Shiori a while back but I didn't know to spell it. My friend and I tried our best and ended up with Shoroie. Later, I found out that I've misspelled it but I've gotten so use to it that I kept it.

A nonsense word from my early teens. Ahh, good times. Good times.
