Mine actually comes from three sources:

Dark come from the fact that I was the only one of my friends at the time of African decent.
Metal comes from my love of classic rock music, which the "musically forward", as I call them, hilariously and ignorantly dubbed as "metal"
Scorpian comes from a tank in Halo 3, which happened to be one of two vehicles that I am effective with (Scorpion sounds cooler than wraith in my opinion) and I used an a rather than an o because it's the first letter of my preferred name and it ensures not being taken.

Jessywoo is a nickname I've used for a long time. My parents used to call me 'Woo', and I just added my first name - Jessica - to the front, to ensure it not being taken. I don't join much online but anyone called Jessywoo is probably me

AkonIsAwesome is sort of self-explanatory: Akon one of my favorite characters in the manga series Bleach. Thus the name. :)

Mine's not terribly creative.  My name's Amanda and I have a Sims addiction.  Ergo, simanda...lack of caps cos I was lazy XD  I only use this name on sim-related sites...otherwise I use soullessmist, which is a name I came up with in my angsty, wannabe-goth teens >.>

Several years ago I was looking for a username of another website. I found this list of Roman gods and deities, and Aquilo was just one I liked. Aquilo was a fabled giant golden eagle who rules the north winds. The name stuck and I've been using it ever since! :D

I read a children's magazine called Aquila. I'm getting a bit old for it now but I still enjoy it.

My name comes from one of the main characters in 'The Redemption of Althalus' by David and Leigh Eddings.
Dweia is a goddess who spends plenty of time as a black cat. Thus Dweiathecat. ;)

Hey Guys,

I hope your all having a fantastic day. Okay, my name came from the love and Passion I have for gaming. All my life I was criticized about being a female and playing games. Because supposedly it was for boys but I didn't let that bother me or stop me my love and passion for gaming grew strong. Especially when the 1st Sims came out forget you thought I was hooked then look at me know I have never stopped gaming and my love and Passion for games is still strong and now I'm a Passionately Me Lady Gamer, Sims obsessed, Sims fanatic you name it.. So that's why I call myself Passions (Passionately Me Lady Gamer)..  :-*

When I was 8, my mother changed my last name to Hill.  My teachers all wrote my name as C. Hill on papers, etc. I got a new uniform for gym and my teacher put "CHILL" on the back of it without thinking. I was dubbed Chill until I was 13.
My mother's family is all Dutch-American. I typed "Chill" into a Dutch translator when I needed a screen name for MySpace my freshman year of high school. It spat out "De kilte". I loved it. My friends would call me DK half the time and "DeKilte" the rest for a long while. Even growing up and getting married, people still refer to me as DK or Chill or DeKilte.

Hello everybody!!! :D

Well, to start off.. I used 'bunso' since in English it means youngest.. I can't think of other name while I'm registering on my school's forum a month ago..
Since I'm the youngest in our team, I decided to use the word bunso for any of the forums I want to register.
I'm also the youngest in the family so 'bunso' really suits me. That's all! :D

When I was very young I watched Pipi Longstocking. I had an obsession with the name Annika for a very long time, and decided it was time it made a come-back - getting in touch with my inner-child, if you will.

I must have posted earlier. I found the topic today when searching through the unread topics. So, here goes:
chetan: My real name.
haobijam: My real surname.
I use the same username in all websites I registered. You can call me 'chetan' or 'chet'. Also I am an Indian(not an american indian but an Indian), maybe the only Indian in this forum.

I'm a complete neurotic wackadoodle, hence the "Crazy loon". I'm also the smallest person in my family, which is where I get the "little" from. Crazylittleloon has been my internet handle since about 2011, but I've gone by many other names since I started going on the internet in the very early 2000s. Heck, I remember when Youtube didn't exist.  ::)

Hey Chet, you're definitely not the only Indian :) I live in Canada now, but was born and brought up in south India. There's at least a couple others on here too :) Happy belated independence day !
