Re: Your Username...

Alirias is a common mispronunciation / perversion of my more common SN. The normal one means "a spirit that can think and interact with people / the world". I chose to use Alirias because it wouldn't show up if anyone related to me googled the other one, and therefore, I couldn't be traced to this site and my IFD conversations by my parents. Or at least, not without work.

Re: Your Username...

I must say, I HATE the name Jason. It's not that I've known a Jason I didn't like...it's that people keep calling me Jason! Come on, retards, Jacob is an easy name, and a very common one! People do it when they first meet me, and also after knowing me for months. WTF! It makes me want to drive up to Edmonton and kiss somebody with a tire-iron!

On the other hand, I've always found Rachel a pretty name. Go figure.

My family name is actually meaningless, but it can be interpreted to consist of two words, which translated to English mean 'light' and 'ice'. Thus, Lightice.

Re: Your Username...

Stormcrow, that is why I hate the name Katie. You know, when you introduce yourself and say "Hello, I'm Kate (KAY-TUH)", you'd think people would at least attempt to say the name the way you do. But no, it's always replied to with "Hello Katie (KAY-TEE)". Ugh. Don't you think Kate is a more common name* than Katie is anyway? However, I understand when I type the name Kate and people still misread it and say Katie.

*I mean Kate as in variations of other names. I'm the only person I know with the actual name Kate. emot-rolleyes It sucks. I prefer Katherine.

Re: Your Username...

The "mercury" part comes from two sources: 1) I'm a Gemini, and Mercury rules that sign; and 2) when I was a big Sailor Moon fan back in the day, my favorite senshi was Mercury.

The "nin" comes from being a raving, slobbering, manic Nine Inch Nails fan for the past 12 years or so.

This is one of two screen names that I use extensively, and as a little aside, the other name I use comes from the nin.com message boards that were on the site around '99 or so.  As for this one, I thought it up for my Yahoo! account back in high school, and I've used it ever since.

Re: Your Username...

I've got admit, Paradox was originally a spur of the moment thing.  Way back when, as America was still in the early stages of recovering from the damage wrought by the great hurricane known only as "The 80s", back before the internet ruled all our lives, I was oh, 13 or so, and our family were just getting dial-up.  You remember, 28k modems, random disconnects, back when we thought waiting two minutes for a web page to load was the future, not nails-on-a-chalkboard painful.

Anyway, we're a signle-parent household, so my mother is signing up for internet service, and because she knows that I know more about the computer than she does, I've come along for the ride.  Keep in mind, at the time, most of what I knew about computers involving hooking up my Nintendo to the TV and playing Carmen Sandiego on the one at school (Admit it, those games rocked), but I was still a few steps ahead of her, as she was still in that phase where she wasn't sure whether the mail carrier had a separate time for picking up e-mail.

So when the guy looks at her and asks what our user name should be, she does exactly what you'd expect, she blinks at him blankly, then turns and looks at me as if I have any idea what to say.

'Paradox' is the first halfway cool thing that came to mind, so it's what came out.  Fortunately, both the internet and this particular ISP were still in their infancy, so we got the name, and I've been using it off and on ever since.  I just think it fits.

So, basically, it amuses me as the name of a literary character I quite like and a variation on my own name. Besides, like Clarice Starling I have a drive to understand things by any means available, so we at least have that much in common. emot-tongue

Re: Your Username...

Well, seeing as everybody is revealing secrets about their names...I suppose I'll tell my story. Admittedly, Razara DID get to hear it first, so you guys and girls get second dibs.

BioKraze has typically been the name I use on forums and other sites of interaction, because it a.) reflects my nature and b.) it was my very first screen name on the Internets. Way back when AOL was still version 3.0, my family signed up to have an Internet connection. My screen name was originally going to be "bio-craze," but my mother said I should drop the hyphen and change the C to a K so it looked cooler. Thus BioKraze was born and has been existing for quite some time. I've gone through other screen names, but since none of them have yet shown up on IRG, I don't feel it necessary to discuss them...why waste valuable space, right? emot-keke

A very good friend/my 'prince' where discussing what paintings we thought each other where, he said I was the painting of irises done by Van Gogh http://kensfavorites.com/Wallpaper/Van_ … EVISED.jpg the white iris among all of the purple ones.
He started calling me Iris, and it kept... I use the name off line as well, mainly because very few can pronounce my real name correctly.  Especially while drunk.

You may or may not know that nin is Japanese for "person."  It's not too much of a stretch to read "mercurynin" as "person from Mercury," which is what I always did until you posted this emot-smile  "mercuryjin" would be a little more typical in that application, but the band didn't call themselves Jillion Inch Nails, did they?

Re: Your Username...

I use mazoboom for everything.  I invented it years ago, I don't remember when. The first time I ever had to choose a name, everything I wanted was used and I didn't want to put numbers after a name because I didn't like how it looked.  I got so frustrated I just typed in "qwertylolo" because I knew something so silly would work.

Later on, I wanted a name I actually liked.  Basically all my real names start with "Ma" so I wanted to keep that.  I happened to have a Spanish dictionary sitting nearby, so I started flipping through the M's.  I saw mazo, which means "mallet."  Not only did it start with "ma" but it had the underused "z" in it.  So I thought to myself, Hmm, mallets do what? They go boom! Got it!"  So I typed in mazoboom, and have used it for everything  ever since.

My name comes from Japanese. When Arki started her japanese lessons (as well as neopets) she got me hooked too! I wanted to get a Draik (a pet that looks like a little cute dragon) so I asked her to help me with the name.

In the end I chose this name: Moesakaru Tenshi --- it means "Flaming Angel". She, the female Draik I created was my first original character ever! I first started drawing then, too!

Online, I use either MoesakaruTenshi, Tenshi, or Aelcharya, which is the name I invented myself for Baldur's Gate II.

I love all of these! ^___^

That's an interesting BG II name. I use Telthelias Nebiroth for male characters and Kensarine Shiketsu for female characters. Both names also appear in works that I have written that, sadly, have nothing at all in common with Utena. emot-frown

Re: Your Username...

"Nocturnal" has been my screen name for ages now, ever since I joined the Nightwish forums in another life-time. Unfortunately it is often taken, thus forcing me to be inventing and adding "lux" that means "light" in Latin. "Nocturnalux" is shoddy Latin for "Light of the night" or just "Nocturnal light". When I am in the mood for megalomania I'll either use "Nocturnalgloria" or "Gloriana", the former taken from Spenser's poem "The Faerie Queen". I enjoy "Gloriana" since my name is Ana, somehow it all makes sense.

For a long time now I've planned on naming my daughter, if I ever have one, Alexandra.  I love this name.  I first fell in love with it because of Legend of Mana.  The jewel hunter, Sandra, is actually the Jumi Alexandra, who is able through her alexandrite core (true alexandrite changes bluish green in daylight and purplish red in incandescent light) to switch between her female form and male form.  Her male form's name is Alex.  Alex.  Sandra.  Alexandra.  I think it's neat.  And alexandrite is my birthstone.
