Yruvian is one of the characters in a book I've been writing for too many years already... and has been my internet-handle for nearly as long. Considering it started of as a wild jumble of letters, it's usually free to be used as a user name. Wherever there's an Yruvian on the net, it's probably me <.<.

However, if I happen to talk about Yruvian, I'm mostly referring to him as the faerie prince that's sitting on my shoulder while I do the writing. His character has grown so much during the years that he really feels real. *shrugs*

Lol. Yruvian's male, though I'm not.

I did hitch42 once or twice until I realized people hadn't read the books and thought I was born in 1942.  ::)Not that being born in 1982 is much better but I would much rather be 30 than 70...just sayin!  ;D

Some of my favorite tv shows are from the 60s and 70s, my favorite being I Dream of Jeannie. I also like retro things and I love my Simmies, so I came up with psychedelicsim. :)

My profile name come from my last family name.
Eldridge too has meaning, but I won't tell you :P

First, I really want to use my full name here. But, I don't want to.
And I see that this profile name was still available and no one use it, why not?

Once upon a time I had a cat named Sunshine. She lived to be just shy of 20! I had to put her down because of an tumor on her nose and she could hardly walk because of severe arthritis. It tore me up pretty badly, but I had to come to grips with it. Shortly after this, we got our first comp and went online. At first i used my real name because I didn't know that I was supposed to choose a handle, lol. Once I found that out, I decided to put a Christian slant to her name and took it for my handle since I am a Christian. That was in 96! I later discovered that there is a Sonshine Festival here in the summer, but I came up with my name independent of that.

Well I was having trouble deciding on a username for another site. After what felt like 20 minutes trying to come up with something clever I checked the time on my watch. It clicked into place. Watch-chronos (Greek Titan and god of time)- add a very minute amount of flair by throwing in the k and there it is.

Mach, being a dimensionless quantity representing the ratio of speed of an object moving through a fluid and the local speed of sound; and levin being another word for lightning. Together, it represents the subsonic to hypersonic and speed and fluidity of lightning.

Awesome!  But does the name refer to your skill or wit?  Or both?

My handle is essentially a shortened form of my first name, Gwendolyn. In real life though, I'm mostly just known as Gwen/Gwennie. If someone does call me Gwendolyn, it has a tendency to freak me out a bit, especially if it's from a girl shorter than me (5'7.5"). Recently though, people tell me that they just think the name is pretty and they like saying it, as opposed to people just showing up to razz me.

It's kind of funny, because it's one of those names that pops up in television, but I can count the number of other people I've seen in person with that name on one hand. Maybe it's just in contrast with being in the class with five hundred Tiffanys/Emmas/Codys.

I got my username from my little gullible Gulliver (my cat). He was sitting on my lap when I named my account, which led to me deciding to name my account Gulliver the cat!

That's funny because near me there's a theme park for small children called Gulliver's land and Gulliver is a mouse!  :P

When I was in high school I had a friend 1 grade ahead of me, and when the seniors would graduate they'd "pass down" stuff to their friends in the lower grades. My friend had a nickname "Wicked" so she told me she passed that onto me and I became "wicked jr" hence wickedjr, I was born in 89 so, that is where my profile name came from.

I don't know how to make a banner or I would. I have a sim legacy story if anyone would like to check it out *whistles*

My friends used to make fun of me that I was way too patient and forgiving with annoying people. It's something I choose to do, though it's hard sometimes, since I don't want to become a jerk. And the soul part is cause...well it's cool.

You sound like a very noble person.  I agree it's hard to be forgiving but my Nonna taught me that "bitterness is an acid that rots the vessel holding it".  But I'm still working on it.

7-24 is my birthday, and "revolution" is because I have an activist streak.  I've used this handle online for more than a decade.

Well thank you. That means a lot to me. It really isn't easy. I just think everyone deserves a chance for forgiveness. Right? Btw, your username is really cool :)

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

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
