I felt this thread deserved to be made. So here's how I got mine:

A few years ago, I got a disc of games from PC Magazine. One of those games was a game called Roar. It was just a top down game where you flew a ship around an arena. But it was really fun and addicting. In the game there were 3 ships. The slow Thunderbird, the medium Firebird (I think, I know it was fire something), and the lightning fast Quickfox. Well, the Quickfox was my favorite, and I started using the name Megafox as my name in the high scores list on that game. And then I started using it for my name on pretty much everything. Then, I tried to join...something, using that name, but it was taken. The site gave me a list of names similar to it, and one of those names was FX114. So, I started using that, including on this board. Then, since everyone just called me FX, I ended up switching to that. End of story.

DOn't know how many times I answered this question. I just thought of a truth and flying. So I wound up with Truth of Flight, then it became True Flight.

Thexare Blademoon -
Thexare came from a name change fad at Acmlm's. Rearrange your name and add an X. Cheveyo wouldn't work well for that, so I decided to use my temporary alternate account's name, Aether. So, Thexare. Blademoon came from my love of swords (Blade-) and my nocturnal tendencies (-moon).

Kell Orine -
Random name, used in the history of the Northern Kingdoms region of Talanris, the great grandfather of High Mage Tianna Orine. He is, of course, dead, and was intended to only be a minor historical character, no one hugely important outside a small group, so I didn't put much thought into his name initially, just used the first thing to come to mind.

Tamarin Calanis -
Tamarin was just a random name that came to mind when I came up with my second Dark Knight character, one who was driven mad my the machinations of Tanis Rotheran (another name I've used), and kept alive by a curse that drove him even more insane with every innocent victim he was unable to stop himself from killing. Calanis popped up immediately after, a modification of "calamity", which seemed fitting enough.

Cheveyo Chowilawu -
According to mom, it means "spirit warrior joined by water". I like water. No idea why she thought the first part was fitting... still, I liked the name, so I used it for a long time.

That's all for names I recall using here...

Uhm here were my names on this board.

Chocobo. - The first name I used on this board and such. It's kinda obvious where I got it from. But my first use of it was on the Matrix Online forums. But I was an asshole on thos forums, nothing like I am here.

Xeios - The name I still use. Very odd, made the name up and it was my first sim-character on the board. I made the name up while trying to think of a good name for a character with the letter X in it. I also wanted a short, easy to pronounce name that wouldn't get shortened too much. Though, big thanks to Kat for doing that.

Princess Xeiette - The feminine form of Xeios, for sex changes.

Mortimer Shreddington - 5th degree Shredmaster.

And that's all I've used, I think I might hit up a new username soon, not sure. It's possible though.

Haha! Chocobo. I remember that! So cute. and big thanks to Kat for what? I dun remember when you came up with the name... As for a name change...no...I like Xeios. **nods**

Hmmm....I had like...4 user names, and two of them were just to celebrate something happening on the board...like Darth Katana when Episode III came out, and Shredtana, when we had the spree...

I started off with Katana, changed it to Raven for a little while...but I feel weird with a new name, so unless there's something going on, its pretty safe to say it'll always be Katana.

Oh! Origin of the name...Both Raven and Katana are two characters that I have (Haven't used either in AGES). Katana goes way back to second grade though...well, the concept of her, not exactly what she is today. I had made up a character and named her Katana due to my "Mortal Combat" obsession at the time. **Gets lost in nostalgia** Good times...good times.

I've answered this question so many times on this and other boards, but whatever.

Rogue was always a nickname I had on con badges and such. It came from my love of X-Men, comics, fantasy and from my personality. A rogue being one who goes against the grain, a scamp, a scoundrel, a mischievous one, and so on.

I got the nickname sometime in high school, though I can't quite remember the exact how or why, but I think it had to do with my almost being expelled for writing letters to the city council about my school's neglect. Also, it might have come from that in protest of my school's demand that dying hair an unnatural color was a distraction, I bleached the front portion of my hair down to white and had it that way my entire senior year. White is a natural color, afterall, eventually. (It was also something I'd wanted to do since I was a kid and oddly enough it sparked this trend of semi-bleaching at my school.)

When I joined my first of these boards, Vizzed, I was under the name "RogueTheFallen," which eventually was shortened to the simpler name I have now.

My name evokes the prophecy that was revealed to me in the glistening pepperoni of the seventh slice of the seventh pizza partaken by a goat.

Squeegeemas ( the wonderous day when Squeejeesus stole all the squeegees in LongBeach)

The prophesy states that on the day of the 23rd Squeegeemas ( the wonderous day when Squeejeesus stole all the squeegees in LongBeach) The Venomous Lobster shall arise from the briny deep and bestride him shall Jayarre ride to bring Ruination* to those who would oppose his august rule! Weilding flames and projectile butter he shall consign those grayfaced bastards of poor humor to a hoary netherworld for eternity to be plagued by demonic mininions of Order. And Lo! a grand, joyous Chaos shall descend upon the breadth of the land ....with gnomes

Vulkar: I was thinking of a name to use on AIM, and so I thought, and thought, and thought some more. Then I thought of the Black Vulkars in Knight of the Old Republic. So I thought, lame gang, cool name and game. I'll tkae Vulkar, and bring full glory to it! So, I took it, used it, and still have it as my AIM name.

Vulcanlogic: I'm actualyl not a huge trekie fan. This name comes from Vulcaan, the greek god of fire, and logic. Thus, firey logic. I'm thinking of going back to Vulkar though...

Hmm, it started with me looking up my name Aurora in the japanese dictionary. The first thing that came up was Aurora, the northern lights. That was Kyokukouku.... so I shortened it to Kyoku and that is what it is now.. I might change it to Kyoku kun soon...

.SK is an accronym for ShaddowKarate, which was my AIM username a while back.

Additionally, .SK was born because The Politician changed his name to .TP.

/sigh...

I have answered thsi before... I started out as Spartan 2 117 due to my obcession with Halo...and reading the books and such.

Then I went to Spartan 1138 the 1138 being a reference to THX 1138 the Movie and Character by George Lucas.

Then I went to Spartan 5150 due to my obcession with that number...Spartan 5150 is my gamer tag on XBL but when I joined here I joined simply as Spartan...it spread to being my nickname and all of my friends who have played halo with me can vouch I am the best in my group of friends.

I used to go to the Wizards of the Coast forums for the M:TG stuff. I was trying to figure what avatar to use, since they don't allow you to upload one(of course, it's Wizards, so they have a huge number of awesome avatars anyway). So, looking through the list, I looked at the card art for Ihsan's Shade(Reference). At the time, I didn't know what card it was, anyway. And so, this is the name I use. I also tend to use a few spinoffs of it, too(ShadowKnight, ShadeKnight, TKShadow, TKShade).

It actually wasn't that hard to come up with the one that I have now. It's the only one I've had since joining ABs back in October 2003. At the time, I thought I was a video game freak, but I probably only play them about half the time now (and mostly Japanese RPGs). The 877 part is my birthdate -- August 1977.

Hmm, I tried to find the old thread for this to pull out my answer. Maybe it wasn't remade after the hack attempt way back then.

Well, I used to go by MasterSephiroth (some oldbies still like to call me that, or MS), but I eventually found out that FFVII wasn't that great, and it wasn't that much of an original name.

So after playing Deus Ex a few years ago and hearing cool Latin names like Daedalus, Helios, and Icarus and stuff like that, I wanted something somewhat like that. Something that was catchy and also had some kind of meaning, like being a god or something. So I just pulled out the dictionary looking around for stuff, and then out of nowhere I came up with Xeogred. And I quickly found out that almost anything could be put in front of "Xeo", so my name gets changed quite a bit. But Xeogred is my main title.
