Thanks for bumping this, because I realized that this topic is better suited for the Member Zone, where I'll move it to. :)

My name came from Rikki from H20: Just Add Water and some random numbers.

Mine is an easy one, my nickname is Hazy so just combined it with my surname and badabing!

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. :)

The Dynasty of Original Townies Dynasty
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's boring too. Cristina is my real name. That's pretty obvious though

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 ß9,999,999.  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

My name is pretty easy to figure out :) My first name is Stephanie and some of my family members call me Stephie. The Sims have been a major part of my life since 2000, plus my last name is Simpson so it all seemed to fit. Simple ;)

Mitz: it is short for mittens.
my mother had a small male kitten named mittens (it was so cute <3) but it eventually grew up. my mother thought of a boyish nickname for mittens, and came up with Mitz. we had a animal crossing (original, gamecube) village and i found something in her room which was named "mitz" so i took that and used it for my animal crossing character. i now use it a ton, since it is tomboyish and im a tomboy who likes cute but hates glam, so i also have a name "the tactical kitty" for a certain game on roblox (dun dun duuun) and that's because i managed to trick some stupid purrson into going around in circles so i could get him on the other side.
whew, what a long post.

First of all, I like the indigo color. But in order to create a more unique name, I looked to my beloved little dog named Nina. Nindigo formed pretty easily in my head from there, and it has been a username of mine for years now :) Sometimes though, it is still a taken name when I sign up for something somewhere - in that case I usually just add my year of birth.

Umm...
NiŽnor is a character in the LOTR universe, and she's only in the Silmarillion and Children of Hķrin, so few people have heard of her, let alone used her name. Although she is cursed and ends up inadvertently marrying her brother... (it's a long story), when I made other accounts, eg my wiki account, she was the only LOTR character I liked that hadn't been already used as a name  (I don't like having numbers in usernames, because I feel that it makes me a number, not a person). So, there you go!

If you're not, go and read the Silmarillion, until you are bored, then read my story.
