Well, Luna is my actual name :)
Wow, that is such an awesome name! My favourite book character and idol (The same person) is called Luna! I also have a sim in one of my stories called Luna.

I'm really bad at thinking up screen names.  I started using this one a few years ago when I got a scented candle that had "autumn scents" such as pumpkin and mulled cider, and it was called "pumpkin carnival."  This amused me enough that I decided to use it as a screen name, plus fall is my favorite time of year and I really like Halloween and all, so it seemed suitable :)

Well, my username on another site is Miyazaki, because I like Hayao Miyazaki's movies.  ;)

I ever wrote this before but I want to make clear :)

Eldridge is my family name, but my ancestor who had it. My family name is totally different and it's not Alexis like what I wrote in my Dynasty. Well, I love this name because it has meaning:

Eldridge is of German origin, and the meaning of Eldridge is "sage ruler".
In Teutonic the meaning of the name Eldridge is: Battle counselor.

SoulUrge Number: 1
People with this name have a deep inner desire to use their abilities in leadership, and to have personal independence. They would rather focus on large, important issues, and delegate the details.

Expression Number: 1
People with this name tend to initiate events, to be leaders rather than followers, with powerful personalities. They tend to be focused on specific goals, experience a wealth of creative new ideas, and have the ability to implement these ideas with efficiency and determination. They tend to be courageous and sometimes aggressive. As unique, creative individuals, they tend to resent authority, and are sometimes stubborn, proud, and impatient.

I think some of them fit my personality well. I am tend to work alone, I resent authority, I am stubborn and impatient.

And I also loved to be called Eld, because it makes me so old as the most of my friend is far older than me.

"MissyLovesSims " is easy for me to remember.  I used something similar at another forum that I belonged to years ago.

"Enderkay" is Pig Latin for "kender," which is a kind of mini-elf from the Dragonlance books. My ex-boyfriend from high school was really into the series, and I guess I reminded him of one because I was short and bouncy and curious and stuff. Some of our mutual friends started using it, and even after we broke up the nickname stuck. I use "enderkay" on the internet because "kender" is often already taken by fans of the book. :P

I love the monster movies made by the SyFy network, they're so bad they're good. And since I didn't like the sound of Sharknado, I picked sharktopus.

Mine is a relic of my playing World of Warcraft. In that game, I was playing a character who was a Blood Elf, or Sin'dorei. The first few letters of his name were "Cat-".  No one else had [email protected]/generic email provider X/.com, so I chose it, and now for simplicity or out of habit, I generally go by Sindocat on game-related forums.

Linmayu is my real name.  Boring, I know. ;D

@Niana, Chetanhaobijam: I am Indian too, born in Chicago but whole family is from Madras (which I guess is Chennai now).  That makes 3 of us, and 3 of anything is enough to take over the world. ;D  My 2 sisters play Sims 3 too, but aren't active on the forum.

It's funny, I see all of these gamer tags all over and never even thought to use my own gamer tags. I guess when it came down to the forum I thought I would be more personal. My name is Olivia, my nickname throughout all of life has been Liv, but occasionally people would call me Livvie which I thought was cute and it stuck. On the official forum I'm EiraRose (one of my gamer tags of the past, the others vary from Aradyn/Eradyn and Rasalyn is my oldest).

One of my favorite authors is Sherrilyn Kenyon. In her Dark Hunter series, one of the characters is a demon that calls her self Simi. She speaks in the a weird version of third person (she calls herself "the Simi") and she loves to shop for dimonique on QVC (because it's her favorite food). So, being on a Sims forum, it seemed appropriate to use Simi.

From the Gilbert & Sullivan comic opera Patience which satirizes aesthetic poetry and superficiality and many other things beside. Bunthorne is an aesthetic poet, or rather, he pretends to be one because the girls think that's hot. And of course there is a rival poet. Bunthorne writes the most gobsmackingly awful poems that the young ladies lap up, and the girl Bunthorne actually likes, Patience, of course is the only one not impressed. There's a scene between them, she rejects him and he recites "Heart Foam". Which is so frothy, and should make your toes curl. It's brilliant satire, and the most incoherent screen name. :)
Various Forum Adventures:

Vlad's Nose story
Sims Eugenics II - the big chateau one
Vacuous Green house (I totes like this one)
Island Living Beachfront Mansion

It is a little thing of my own. I call it "Heart Foam". I shall not publish it. Farewell! Patience, Patience, farewell!

Exit Bunthorne.

Mine dates from a while back, when I was in school. We had a computer tech lesson and we each had to create a password.

My mind drew a complete blank... I looked at my pencil case which happened to be in the style of a faux tiger skin pattern. It's kind of stuck since then as a user name for me in some form.

I couldn't think of anything witty or cool, so I just thought of my general reaction to a lot of things. "What the what?"

My screen name is coolsim9999999 because I thought it was cool when my Sims (without any cheats, just some potions like Sleep replacement) first made §9,999,999.  It was so exciting and cool.  I was so proud of them!

My profile name is a childhood nickname that an older cousin gave me. My real name is Megan, so she somehow derived Shmeggo from that. The nickname stuck around throughout the years, and my cousin still calls me Shmeggo to this day. I can't remember the last time she called me by my actual name! I often use it as a profile/screen name since my first name is rather popular. ;D
