Have you ever looked at someone's username and wonder howww did they think of something like that? Or what the hell it was supposed to mean? I have, many times XD Share the story of the birth of your username here. You can also put usernames that you're wondering about how they were made up and other choices you had as usernames.

I love fantasy and magic so I decided I'd have something and then Magic for my username. 9 is my favorite number and I thought 98 sounded pretty cool so I tacked that onto the end. I like to have usernames that are two words and then a number so I needed something else to add to it. I thought about doing White Magic, but I dismissed it because it didn't sound that great and people would assume it'd be "good magic". Just because its white doesn't make it pure.

I liked DarkMagic98 but by Dark I didn't mean evil, people assume that something dark is automatically evil (so racist. ). So I chose BlackMagic98. I thought it sounded kinda mysterious and nighttime-y XD And I think thats the best username I've ever made up. I use it for everything I join now XD

I Considered (these all had '98' so I'm not going to add that):
PhoenixFire, DragonFire (I like fire, what can I say?), DarkMagic, and I don't really remember the others.

Usernames I Wonder About:
1. galm (its been annoying me ever since I saw it galm XD)
BlueRise
marymannly12
psyopslayerx
8018
mlaaaa

So...share!

I was listening to 'Xanadu' by Rush at the time I was trying to think of a CR username, and I thought 'x' and 'u' would go well together in some form, so I tried different combinations until I got the simple 'Xutu' but that sounded a bit short so I just added -ko to the end because it sounded/looked like a decent fit.

There aren't any usernames that spring to mind that I've wracked my brain thinking about, but fanboy/girl names like 'xXx(anime)RuLeZxXx' (completely random example) I find amusing sometimes.

Interesting Lol those fangirl/boy usernames really annoy me. I never pick names specific to any anime/movie/book because even if I pick something from my favorite thing EVER what if I find something I like better? Or what if I don't like it anymore? Then I'll hate my username and want to change it. Plus I don't fangirl over people. Except maaaaybee Seto Kaiba XD

But hey, its hard not to. Seto Kaiba can make straight guys fanboy over him XD

I think the aura of mystique surrounding that name has disappeared since everyone knows where it originates from now.

Ah... it's a long story... -ahem-

One day there lived an 8-year-old girl. Her father got her into this game called "World of Warcraft". She made a human mage and enjoyed playing. Her mom (at some point) made a night elf hunter named Bluerose. Eventually her mom decided she didn't want her hunter anymore, so she sold all of Bluerose's stuff and sent the money to her other characters. The 8-year-old girl thought to herself "Woah... she's lvl 17!" (xD) so the little girl asked to take over the character and her mom didn't mind. After a very long time of playing, when the 8-year-old was no longer 8.. (she was 10 at this point) She was always playing on her RP server, Feathermoon. Well, she had this night elf hunter on Silvermoon, lvl 49, but she always played on Feathermoon on her little lvl 20 because she had more fun there. She then decided to transfer her hunter to Feathermoon for..... $20? I can't remember how much it was... anyway.... As the young, energetic girl waited for her hunter to be there... on Feathermoon... she talked with a friend of hers.... on Feathermoon. She kept checking to see if her hunter was there, and once her hunter was... she was sooo happy! I mean like ridiculously happy! xD Her name appeared to be like B25820FO4 (you know what i mean... i think?) so, of course, she had to change it. Now, Bluerose, the name she oh so very loved, was TAKEN! So, she talked to her friend and needed a name to change it to. They both thought for a moment.... "Bluerise?" he suggested. The little girl approved and quickly got her hunter's name on there. Then, she played on that character all the time...

Eventually, she met an otaku. They both became pretty good friends. Her otaku friend told her about CR, and then she made an account named after her night elf. =P

*claps* I rate BlueRise's story 10/10! (Though I've never played WoW myself.)

'Twas very amusing, and kinda touching. *wipes away a tear*



I still find it hilarious that your parents got you into World of Warcraft though XD

At least you didn't name your hunter 'Legolas'.
