Some of these profile name stories are brilliant, had me laughing a few times.

My chosen name is kind of boring and unoriginal - Bavarian because I was born in Bavaria in Germany and spend a lot of time there and my partner chose the Beauty part because originally it was going to be BavarianBrat and he decided that Beauty was better.

That's so sweet that your partner thinks you're beautiful and not bratty.  Welcome to the Forum BavarianBeauty.

Candyd (or I could have written it CandyD too) is a mix of my dog's name and my cat's name. I found it cute that it almost makes the word "candid".

Well that worked out well.  If I combined my dog's and cat's names, I'd get a name more suited to a nightclub.  No, I didn't name the dog.  ::)  Welcome to the forum Candyd.

Is a crazy coconut. Nuff.

Also the name is pretty common so when it's not avaivable I mash in my usual online nickname Mari into it and it becomes Marinut

Old name used to be Fukairi ,which I never use now, back in my nippon days. Still hold onto it on my old deviantart though.

Cool explanation of your screen name  :) --- coconuts are crazy?  Well, they're hard to get open, etc., that's for sure!

I was originally Kaiko Mikkusu (also spelt "Kyko Micsu", which is my usual Internet name as of 2016) Kaiko was a sort-of japanesization\corruption of my real name (Gaia) and Mikkusu\Micsu is a corruption of MIX which is a makebelieve name for an oddball group of magical girls led by myself. Then I thought about changing the first name because I use to be too obsessed\not lucid back in the days, first it was Nyssa after the Doctor Who character (I'm 1980's Doctor Who trash) then I thought that "Nimrod" also sounded good of a name. Apparently it was an ancient king talked about in the Bible, but I think it works as it's been used in a lot of place. And it's kind of an unisex name as it's not that common. It can also be shortened into Nimi.

Nikkei - is a term for Japanese (diaspora - born in other countries).  I'm Japanese-Canadian
Simmer - You can take that one of two ways.  I'm a Sims player (they're called Simmers) or when I play too much Sims 3...with my sims set on high willpower...you can see my frustration level with them grow to a slow boil (simmer).  :P

Truth be told, I stole mine. A good friend of mine used to use it for everything, including Garrys' Mod which we used to play religiously! When he sadly passed away I decided to use it from then on and it's kind of just stuck.

Gee, where do I begin?
Ah yes, when I first discovered gaming.

I had to come up with a name for minecraft and at the time was doing a lot of daydreaming and my character in my made up world was a princess from another world and didn't know it. She called herself Alex but her real name was Zoe and minecraft recommended adding numbers to my name hence 123

Sort of embarrassing to explain now, but I've used it everywhere since, soo...
That's how I got my name  ;D

My favourite poem is The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe. From the line it is most known for, "Quoth the raven; Nevermore." I also partially have Nevermore in an account username on another site, but that username is sort of too long to use here. Most people on that site call me Nevermore, anyway, so I thought it best to use that nickname here.
