SilverAce88 Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2013  Student General Artist
Mine is based on my once favorite sonic character-silver the hedgehog, ace- as in flying ace or something along those lines, 88 as in the number of keys on the piano.
JW89 Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Original name sounded more like something out of south park - account ended up getting removed for inappropriate mature content submission (or whatever it was) and came up with this boring name based on my name and y.o.b

Littlest-Sister Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013  Student General Artist
Mine's from a Rufus Wainwright song about feeling overshadowed by your elder brother's talent.
MistaHipstah Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2013  Student General Artist
Anin is actually my signature iconic nickname ever since I was a kid. I was disappointed though to see someone had already claimed it. 1009 was the first number (with meaning) I learned as a child. It was my first house's zipcode and also my birthday (October 9th) which coincidentally is also John Lennon's birthday. :D
looFsydoboN Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013   Writer
Once upon a time, I had an idea for a jester character. I tried signing up for a chat site that had a role playing group, and, originally enough, I tried getting the user name "NobodysFool". Well, that was taken (imagine that!), and the site had some suggestions for different names - one of them was looFsydoboN.
I don't even remember the original character idea, because the backwards spelling gave me other ideas (so, now the character looFsydoboN is an insane vampire who speaks only in rhyme).
Emerald-Depths Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
What's funny is that I NEVER realized your name was something backwards. :slow: But that's awesome, and it sounds like a cool character concept. :la:
looFsydoboN Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013   Writer
It's most amusing when people shorten it to "loof" and I wonder if they know what they're saying. :D
And looFsydoboN is a fun character. I considered writing up her story for NaNoWriMo, but quickly discarded that idea, because 50k words in rhyme would drive me insane. lol
Yancis Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Common thing. My name is Jānis, the second letter is long, like Jaanis. So between friends they often use to call me Jancis, it's a friendly nick we can say. But when I started my DA account, name Jancis was reserved obviously for another Janis, so I changed the first letter, cos it sounds almost equal. That's all.
catlickfever Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2013   Digital Artist
hahaha mine is good.

Bit of background, there's an actual illness called cat scratch fever. We had a cat that licked the icecube trays and my dad would always say you better wash those out or you'll get cat lick fever! It always annoyed everyone. :giggle:

Then when I was a teenager (also super duper computer illiterate) and my dad was helping me set up an email account with a new service provider. I couldn't pick a name and he put me on the spot about it. The one I wanted was taken. So he just said he'd put in catlickfever because I couldn't decide. I told him no but he did it anyways and I was so mad at him! Then I started liking it and it stuck. :lmao:
Emerald-Depths Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I've heard of cat scratch fever before (but since I've been around cats all my life, I probably had it as a kid and don't remember :lol:). But that's a cute story. It works well, and it's unique. :D
catlickfever Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2013   Digital Artist
I never got it to my knowledge. lol I've been around cats all my life too. :)

Thank you! :D :lol:

winxphantom Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2012
I loved the shows Winx Club and Danny Phantom, so I fused the two names together to make "winxphantom".

I love the mystical Creatur the pegacorn. Its a unicorn and a pegasus Combined. The gem part comes out of... probebly becouse gems and diamonds are pretty :D

catluvr2 Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I like cats, so when I first signed up on a customization site, I signed up as catluvr. Naturally I wanted the same name here, so I attempted to sign up with that name. One thing stood in my way.


So I added a 2 to the end.

The rest is history.
Emerald-Depths Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's a shame the good names, or at the least the one you really want, are taken. :grump:
catluvr2 Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, it did lead to my making a brand of it. I've even got my facebook timeline header to be the logo I designed.

What I designed to be my logo is...

well, :iconcatluvr2-studio: where the paw print is the "o" in studio. I made that when I was going to college and one of the assignments was to make a logo. So I made that, and I've used it for my journal header, the avatar for my group... I'm thinking about if I ever have a business out of my apartment for selling scarves and such, I'll use it for my logo, too.
Hatty-hime Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
HatakeSage is combined of two things,
Japanese word for "field",*hatake* and of course, the English word for sage.

I wanted something somewhat unique, and since my town is full of fields and grapevines, I chose it to represent the spirit of the earth :3
Emerald-Depths Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I like the story behind yours. :) And it's a nice name.

AbstractDr3ams Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
I was going over new screen names with a friend who has since passed on, he stated, "well you have the craziest dreams, why not abstract dreams." It was taken so I adapted the e into a 3 and now that he is gone I can't bare to part with it. Best name ever, I am forever indebted to him haha.

Bubbazden Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I have a dog named Bubba and initially it was "Bubbazplace" but I didn't really like that so I changed it to "Bubbazden" because he is definitely (NOT) a wild dog XP

Morgannon Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2012
I don't know really. It's just a random name I came up with: Morgannon Vitchnek. It's been used in many games now across a variety of characters:)
PoppyHunter Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
It's my name :P
Meowberries Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I started to want to make human OCs for roleplaying, and I thought of the name 'Nerreta.' Surprisingly, it wasn't a very common name at all, so I just used that. xD
It's funny because one day I searched it up on Youtube for reasons unknown, and the gun called berreta came up. So apparently it's a deadly name. //giggle :>
neo-mahakala-108 Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2012  Student General Artist
Neo: I watched Matrix, worked in IT Business, learned programming and hackinig. I train martial arts. I am Buddhist, we sometimes do miracles ;)

Mahakala: Mahakala, or Black Cloak, is Buddhist protective energy.

108: I used to like Mathematics. 108 is holy number in India, it also has unique Mathematical properties, i used it to hack matrix (equations can be written in matrix form, i found alternate solution to factoring number 108 into primes, useful for cryptography and hacking).
neo-mahakala-108 Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2012  Student General Artist
There are more connections between these parts of my user name, including number of Buddha's teachings. It would just be too long to write.

a long story
serpentine-eyes1994 Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2012
I have always loved reptiles, and the thought of anthro-reptiles was thrilling to me. I had fiddled with Photoshop since I was around fifteen, making film stars into reptilians, and people really loved my work. A friend of mine convinced me to join DA because of my photo manipulations and thought it would be cool if others could see them. So, I used one of my fav manips as the icon, and since it was of a reptilian, I chose “serpentine eyes” and 1994 because it’s my birth year.
yamon-venzli Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i was thinking of my story at the time and i thought how great it would be to have my username be the same as the name of the god in my story... AND IT STILL IS... sort of... (i still have doubts sometimes) now i just need the motivation/concentration to work on it
AmberstarII Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
When I made my DA account I was obsessed with the Warriors series, so I made a cat OC called Amberclaw, but I went with Amberstar as my username instead. I added the II because it looked more... impressive? IDK.
WaltMistake Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2012  Student Writer
Well it's my name! ^^
Actually, my last name obviously isn't "Mistake". Only I wrote a song entitled Mr. Mistake, and I identified so much to the character I decided to take its name as a... "stage name". For when I get famous. If that happens.

Yeah, it's funny how something that's meant to be random has more meaning than it's supposed to. :XD:

The result of the Kingdom Hearts craze of changing your name like the Organisation XIII members.
Mine actually sounds nice, so I kept it! :giggle:
So, what's my name?! (That and someone on DA already has my name as their DA name. They are not doing anything with it which is wasteful, but not a lot I can do... :shrug:)
