When i saw the names "Chopper" & "Tommygunn" i thought "wow that is kinda cool" i should have thought of something cool too (even though that would be pretentious). My user name was just some numbers & letters at the top of the keyboard.

Mine comes from the ancient Greek story of the goddess Demeter. After harvesting her fields one day, she noticed something out of the corner of her eye and went to investigate. It was a diamond, and she was awe-struck. The gem symbolized eternal youth and peace, and she

Mine is fairly simple. Used to visit a forum named Drowtales, choose the nick TheOutsider(yes so dark) and when you have a long name and become friendly with people, they tend to shorten it or give you a pet name...So 'Outie' is the cute version of Outsider. Easy.

Silly me, due to my differing background knowledge I always think of Chopper as a meat cleaver, used by a differing criminal organisation alltogether.

I tried to think up a suitably Pulpy, prohibition/noir style name for the forum; So P.I. for Private Investigator.

^Chopper has loads of definitions, which is why I picked it for my definition essay in school. :P This is just the one I use most, plus it's 1920s related.

One of my very first internet nicks was "Tahar", after a secondary character from a book I kind liked at the time: A pirate prince.

Anyhow, a few years later I discover that that's about as unique as "martin", if you're arab.

So I got another. I tried to find something dragon sounding and misleading, so I could find out what people thought it could mean. Then I would point out that no, fire isn't wise at all: It eats until it dies.

Try again.

Somairle goes to one of the Gaelic renderings of Somerled, or Sorley, a Norse-Gaelic chieftain. I really wish there was more to that.

Mine's from a Gang of Four song. And then my other handle Johnny Ether is taken from a Changelings song (John being my real name).

cool my username was born one hot summer day. my mama, bless her heart, gave me a gift card. and when one gets a gift card, one would rationally throw it away on like 6 (six) tshirts, all with sushis imprinted on them bc sushis are friggin cute. and they were simply the best things in existence so i wore them constantly. that's when some people started calling me sushi. and since i'm an original individual i used that in most of my usernames. and then when the username sushiroll was taken i thought id add the adjective that best describes me. so there u go. the story of my inspired username
