:B I was making a new character on FlyFF and couldn't think of a name so I picked some pretty sounds and came up with Lonin. :O
DaisyPhantom Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2012
Well my nickname is Daisy & I'm obsessed with the 2004 cartoon series Danny Phantom. You can guess the rest xD
complexdiagnosis Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2012  Student Digital Artist
My name was originally "ZLamoon" but I have moved since then. But Z has been a nickname of mine forever, and my middle name Lamoon goes way back into my Thai/German heritage. So, ZLamoon has since been my username.
Rot-Graustufen is my new dA name, and it is a little ironic. It translates to Red-Grayscale which is impossible, because greyscale cannot be red. Yet I love silver and red, so it seemed like the perfect new name for my new account!
DaisyDaisyDoodles Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Um...My name is Daisy, and I doodle.

...I use DaisyDoodles in other places, but it was taken. So, DaisyDaisyDoodles!
MicoNutziri Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
The story behind my name? Well, where to start...

One day, when i was 7-8, i think, i needed a name for my avatar in my new Pokemon game. I often come up with some stuff that don't make sense. In this case, Mico. I liked it very much, so i started use it alot more than i thought i wanted. Now, Mico is a part of every username have on the internet.
Less than 2 years earlier, i came up with Nutziri. That makes my internet/gamer-name Mico Nutziri.

And thats the story of my username :meow:
GreyRadian Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2012  Student Digital Artist

Ok so... before I had this account I used to make usernames after random pokemon, so before this account my dA username was Cresselia. I wanted to change that because I realised that if I kept it i would have the same identity as a pokemon lol! At that time Ib was playing the game the world ends with you and one of my fav characters (sho minamimoto) had a few catchphrases, including calling people radians (yes as in that maths term). So i took that and added the colour grey in front to make it sound nicer ^^;
Sora-Horsey Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Hmm, the story behind my username is a bit interesting.

When my account was created, I was actually not the one to create it. I had next to no internet access at the time, but my friend had seen my art and really wanted me to have an account. Because I could not create it, she created it for me.

At that time, I was very into the video game "Kingdom Hearts", and although Sora was not my favourite character, he was the character that I was most like. As for the 'Horsey' part, I've always loved drawing horses, but, when I see a horse, I will never say "Oh, look! A horse!" Rather, I will always say "Horsey!" As a result, the username "Sora-Horsey" was born, and I have stuck with it ever since, whether it be here on dA, on YouTube, or even Etsy.
JDB-Inks Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Found this Journal link on a another persons site I just started watching, thought I'd check it out & post my own story.

My Name is a slight Variation on my usual handle of 'Passover' - I picked it up after visiting my local comic book store to collect my Evil Ernie Graphic Novel's and noticed a new title called 'Avengelyne' from Maximum Press. I wasn't a huge fan of the art itself, though it was quite different to what I was used too but really enjoyed the story.
Passover is/was the Angel of Death and a Leader of one of God's Warhost's who is sent to Kill Avengelyne after she's tricked into having a child fathered by a Demon. The child is born before he arrives and rapidly grows into a powerful Demon/Angel Half breed and Passover end's up defending Avengelyne and together they drive Magog away.
After that I started using both Avengelyne & Passover names whenever I played video games for female/male characters whenever possible and used both for character names in World of Warcraft which I played for 7 years on and off aswell as SWtor. I try to use Passover whenever possible, with the exception of Facebook.
So that's my story :P
ravencatastrophe Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I used to roleplay with a friend of mine and was left with the decision of a name for my OC, I chose Raven because I was reading Vampire Kisses and I used to love the character Raven from Teen Titans, and Catastrophe because it was her last name, as she was married to Adrian Catastrophe. They have a huge story, and I've stuck to the name since.
SevenObessed77 Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
My account name's interesting.
I have a rather large obsession with the number 7. My friend and I were working on something that we had titled Seven. Although we've stopped working on it for now, at the time of the creation of this account, we were working on it still. One desperate need to be able to comment and misspelling of part of the name later, the name was born.
Seven=In reference to the series named after the number that my friend and I created.
Obessed=I was highly obsessed with working on it, and when I created the account, I misspelled this word.
77=I really love seven. REALLY LOVE IT. So two 7s were good enough for me for some random numbers at the end of my username.
That's the tale of my name.
FantasiaDream Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
I was originally gonna just stick with Fantasia, but that was taken.
I picked Fantasia because it sounds like "fantasy", full of potential and imagination. I always drift off into space and start day-dreaming about parallel dimensions and dragons and whatnot, so Fantasia seemed like a nice username.
But that was taken, so I added the "dream" at the end, to add on to that fantasy, unrealistic feel.
There you have it.
Honoo-Koneco Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2012  Student Digital Artist

Honoo stands for flaming in Japanese, and I love fire. I couldn't use the word 'fire' in Japanese for my acc name because it needed one of those special letters I couldn't use in my name. :/ So I just went with Flaming. XD

Koneco means kitten in Japanese, and I loooooove kitties! >w< They are my favorite animal. <3

The reason why they are both in Japanese, I am totally in love with Japanese culture! XD It's just something I always loved when I was younger and still do. :) So I incorporated it all in my username and vwala!~
StarSilver09 Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2012  Student General Artist

Star - I always love watch stars in the sky during night time. Because it is beautiful view.
Silver - I always get second place, never win first place something bigger. But also it my favorite color.
09 - This is my high school graduation 2009, I had a lot good memories with my friends.

Honestly, I had no clue why these 'StarSilver09' just pop in my head and so I type it... I don't know but I like it. And I think this is my first username, because my friends don't know it is actually mine, like private or shy! ~
CapnInsanity Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2012   Traditional Artist
"Capt4in-Ins4nity" is pretty 12yrs. so 12yrs ago i was a complete "no other fandom is better that a pyrate fandom" fangirl. like everything about the time period and everything....

at one point i even made all my friends into shipmates and i their captain lol. since i was a complete neurotic hyper nut-case (still am in a way) i was dub Captain Insane and altered it to fit my current nickname "Captain Lime Insanity of the Brigantine 'Mischievous Wench'"

so ive kept this name ever since lol. still neurotic...but a calmer neurotic can still find traces of it in my old DA account (link in DA ID)
Fra-Chan Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2012  Student General Artist
"Fra-Chan" Comes by my real name, then I put "chan" because I like it! XD No, "chan" is used for diminutives of \\generally\\ Japanese names... XD
Starfox-pokemon Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Mine is VERY Simple- I like Starfox, I like Pokemon. Put them together and TADA! My Username for basically every website! (Unless it doesnt allow the Pokemon part, I use Dewott, I LOOVE Dewott!) :icondewottplz:
dichan85 Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist

di - are the first two letters of my real name.
chan – is a japanese form of address for little children, particularly for cute children ;) It is also used as a nickname between friends. I like to read mangas and the the characters are often …-chan. Some of my friends started calling me “dichan”. I really like that!
85 – that’s my birth year. I added the number, because the name “dichan” was already taken :(
That was my story…
Wichrzyciel Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2012  Student General Artist
I found your project interesting and I want to be a part of it so:
my username is Wichrzyciel because translated from Polish to English it means literally trouble maker. I couldn't have such username because it was already taken and I diddn't want to be TroulbeMaker93 or something like that because I don't like numbers near a nickname because it means someone was first and could have your name without a number. now why trouble maker? that's not as simple as it seems :D I don't cause many troubles (well maybe I am a trouble sometimes but it doesnt count) I just had a band called troubleMakers and it was my first band ever and I was so excited that I was taking part of something really special that I called myself a trouble maker but Polish version. maybe I picked a translation so my name wasn,t so obviously connected with the band...? well. this group doesn't exist anymore and I feel ashamed that i fell for my TroubleMakers guitarist that I wanted to change my username. (this comfort is not avaliable for not premium members so I couldn't do that) If I could I would pick 'iampoorartist' for username. but it is a different story (and I use 'iampoorartist' in different sites on the Internet) the whole "wichrzyciel" story is more complicated than I wrote here, but I alredy took too much space so I simpify it.
Nightmarenight123 Featured By Owner May 31, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I got Nightmarenight123 because Luna is my favourite character from MLP FiM, but I didn't want to use that.

Also, because a long time ago, I wrote a monolouge for a districts competition, and the character's name was Nightmare. :D <3
MaryThaCake Featured By Owner May 30, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Okay, so...

I choose my username a looong time ago, when I was still a big fan of Kingdom Hearts and Organization XIII... in that time, when I liked something I HAD to make a character for it that represented me... (mary-sues YAY) so I made this girl called Narixam... and she was part of Org XIII. If you don't know KH, I basically made an anagram of my name (Marina) with an X in the middle. xDD
About the numbers at the end, they also have to do with Org XIII, besides the 5. xDD
8= my favourite member of the Organization, Axel.
5= my favourite number. simple XD
9= my second favourite member of the Organization, Demyx.

Now I'm not obsessed with KH that much, sooo yeah this username is kinda old. But I don't have ideas for a new one so I keep this one. xD
Ponyloid Featured By Owner May 29, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
i had a hard time thinking of a username, i was trying to make something original and that involved things i like (obviously that's what many ppl do) and i recently got into MLP FIM and i like Vocaloid music (and music in general XD ) and i also find crossovers really cool so ultimately after coming up with a few names i saw 'Ponyloid' as part of one (poke-ponyloid i think) and i liked it that and i didn't want an excessively long name. anyway out of all the names i had it was the only one that no one else had, or that i didn't have to change letters or add numbers to. that and it rolled of the tongue the easiest out of all the names i came up with. so there you have it, how Ponyloid came into being!
JaBaVoX Featured By Owner May 29, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
" JaBaVoX "

This name was a character's name from the Japanese manga, " Project Arms ". The correct name of this character is " Jabberwock ". I like this name based on his characteristic. One of his favorite quote from the manga is " Do you need 'POWER' ? If you need it, I can give you. "I read the following manga from Thai publishing , and misspelled the following name since the names're Thai karaoke. So (yes) I spelled it in my own way.... LOL . I felt that the name was really unique, and never be heard of among artists. That's why I chose to use this name.

wanna see his fanart :) ---> [link]
bakatsu42 Featured By Owner May 27, 2012  Student
The story behind my username has 2 parts. The first is kinda embarrassing... and lame... ha ha!

'Bakatsu' comes from Naruto. There is a character (Deidara) who would always say that 'art is a blast' (or more literally, an explosion) So when I heard him say this (in Japanese), I heard him say 'explosion' as 'bakatsu'; when actually the Japanese word for explosion is 'bakuhatsu'. I heard him wrong, and made that my name on dA and tumblr. Only a while later did a realise my error. But, 'bakatsu' has a nice ring to it, so why not?

Then the 42. That's a reference to my one of my 2 favourite numbers (42 and 49). 42, because it is the meaning of life, according to the book 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy'.

(ps, i looove this idea for a project. great stuff :D )
Ghost3ToxicNightmare Featured By Owner May 26, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
lol Ghost is my fursonas name because she is quiet and waits and listens, and i hate my name. ToxicNightmare is because my old fursonas name was toxie and nightmare was because i always have them and i creep people out. Im going to change my name to Ghost3toxiclullaby cuz my fursona in my book has an accident and thinks her name is lullaby and ima babyfur so i like lullabys
german-popsicle Featured By Owner May 25, 2012  Student Photographer
I literally was just sitting here on dA, trying to think of a recognizable and simple username so that people would remember me. I've never been one to have x's or numbers or Japanese (or other languages I don't speak) in my username. I think it generally looks kind of unprofessional. I just wanted two words that had a nice ring to them to stick together. I think that at the time I was probably craving an orange popsicle or something. Maybe not. It's been awhile. And while I am of German decent, it's not something that I'm like "HEY EVERYONE! I'M 1/32nd GERMAN!" I just am, it doesn't define me or whatever.

And so yeah, it was just kinda like "hey, this sounds pretty cool" so I made myself an icon on MS Paint and it looked pretty stellar. Little orange popsicle in lederhosen and a fedora with a tiny pint of beer. Adorable.

Then I changed it to show I was something of a serious photographer. Or something.
E404Corruption Featured By Owner May 22, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
i thought that it would be an ironic name since on the computer all my stuff (folders, programs, accounts etc.) kept getting corrupted. So, if online data gets corrupted, who does it? a data corrupter that is who. and even though i spelled it wrong, it was on purpose. not only that, when i beat people they think im a hacker so that doubles the fun :iconlunafunplz:. I am DataCorruptor, and i will corrupt your data! that is my story
LunaMikogami Featured By Owner May 21, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

Luna: I hate my real name that's why I searched for another. The moon is my planet and my favourite language is latin. Also I like short names with soft speak. That's why my name is Luna.

Mikogami: Unfortunatly each third person on the internet call Luna (sometimes I have this feeling) and I don't want to add a number or some smileys or other stuff to my name. So I build a full name. My favourite manga is "Kamikaze" and my fav. character on that Misao Mikogami. She controls water and has a strong personality full of sadness. I love her, that's why I took her last name. Mikogami is japanese and means something like "graceful witch or sorceress".
seven11ART Featured By Owner May 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Here is my story:

It all started with the username Tiger711 that I used for club penguin :). Tiger is my cat's name, and the numbers 711... I don't really know xD. I just used it and it stuck. Leadmare is because I focus on equine art, and theres not really much more to it. Now 7 11 (seven eleven) is my personal "artist number", since everybody else has a artistic name. I wanted to have something special :)
hkepoetry Featured By Owner May 20, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
My username's origin is actually real simple: it's all my given names plus the word Poetry.

The reason why I put "Poetry" after "hke" (Helen Kimberly Elisabeth) is because I used to write alot of poems back when I was a teenager. And because of this, people started calling me "Poet" and "Poesi" ("Poetry" in swedish"). I wanted my username to last forever (since we couldn't change our username when I joined), so I remembered my nickname back when I was younger and decided to add the first letter in my three given names. Funnily enough, people never think "hke" represent my name, they think it's "Hugs, Kisses and Emotions". :D I laugh when I hear that.
Captain-Brony Featured By Owner May 19, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Well I had recently become a brony, loved the whole love and tolerence thing, figured I'd make up an entire account to being a brony, seperate from my usual account. I needed a name though, I looked to my tv and Captain Caveman was on boomerang. So I figured I would be CAPTAIN BROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY, the brony who would bash troll's face in with the club of love and tolerance.

There is supposed to be another Captain Brony around here somewhere, he aint that friendly towards me.
Alikuma Featured By Owner May 19, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
I came up with this name randomly when I decided to join DeviantART
I'm sure there was a song of some sort that had some misheard lyrics from a song on the radio as a child, and so Alikuma was born!
Not to mention my nack of ending names in "a"
Ex: Linka (feminine of link [LoZ]) ect.
Estecka Featured By Owner May 19, 2012  Student Digital Artist
So, let's go. ^_^

My username come from a time when I was found of stickmen.
When I signed in on youtube, I called my account 'StickmanCorp', and I made an icon with the caracters ' STKc.'.
One day, staring this icon, I found that 'S-T-K' sound well, and I arranged it into 'Es-te-cka'
('cka' instead of 'ka' because I found it look better)
So, Maybe not in english, but at least in French, 'Estecka' is pronounced ' S T K '.
And, it's often enshortened so in chatbox...

By the way, because it end with a 'A', many people though that I was a girl...
inazar Featured By Owner May 17, 2012
Hey, how are you? Doing alright? Ok, sweet. Here's a short presentation on the origin of my username. (Can we get the projector up? Thanks.)

Right, so there's the title of the presentation, and that's my name: Imran Nazar. Next slide? Cool.

Yeah, that's my username: inazar. Next slide?

What'd you mean, there's no more slides? I wrote all kinds of crap about how my name got contracted over the years, from imranazar to imnazar, but I guess that got thrown out, huh.

Anyway, that's it. Imran Nazar became inazar; if you've got any questions, let me know after this next presentation.

So: Superliquid formations in Bose-Einstein condensates. As we all know, condensates are a form of matter distinct from the three we normally talk about...

moonsugar33 Featured By Owner May 15, 2012
I'm moonsugar :) I was sitting on the lawn one night and looking up at the stars and I thought it looked like someone had spilt sugar across the sky. So I giggled "moonsugar" and then realised that hey, I actually really liked that name and it's stuck with me ever since.
HanniHamster Featured By Owner May 15, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hey nice idea *3*
Ok here's my story:
First... Hanni ;D haha that's my name.
Hamster is for... I really don't know...
My girlsgogames account is Hanni-Hamster and I wanted to have an account on dA too.
So I used the username HanniHamster because I want something special. I love hamsters.
They're so cute! :iconhamsterplz: so I made an icon for my account :[link] (It's a hamster)
haaamster gif *-* :iconhanni-hamster: <-- old account.
Hamsters are small so they can live in sneakers *-*.
Ok I love hamsters so I used HanniHamster C:
JeffrettaLyn Featured By Owner May 14, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Sounds like a neat project! :D

Here is mine:

First off, I am a girl. Alot of people see Jeff and think otherwise. :XD:

Several years ago my dad bought a slot-car track that came with some NASCAR characters. I ended up picking the Jeff Gordon car, since I liked the colors (didn't really know about NASCAR, and I'm definitely not a Gordon fan). Well, we were all giving ourselves names that went with the NASCAR driver, so Dad and I came up with Jeffretta McGordon.

Jeffretta is an easy name to use as a username, since it's never taken unless I have been on the site before. :lol:
XimaiSUZUMIYAKH Featured By Owner May 13, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Sure :)

I got my username by combining the following:
Xi: The first two letters of Xion from Kingdom Hearts.
Mai: One of the minor characters from A:TLA
SUZUMIYA: Haruhi Suzumiya's surname/the surname of a character I cosplay as
KH: Abbreviation for Kingdom Hearts.

That's how I came up with the username XimaiSUZUMIYAKH :)
boukatos Featured By Owner May 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist

matildarose Featured By Owner May 11, 2012   Traditional Artist
Mine comes from a mispronounication of my last name, plus a favorite flower of mine. This place is perhaps one of the last places I use this moniker, but since DA doesn't allow changes and I don't particularly mind, it's still here.
Deadmen23-3 Featured By Owner May 11, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
my user name back story is a guy who died and become an immortal zombie who is really lazy but can be a real good person to others but most people beat him up because his a zombie.

yeah its my persona who is close to me but his full character is up to him and thats all i got.
(what brought him to life is in the story so no spoilers)
VampObsessed Featured By Owner May 9, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Well, my DA name is simple and has no back story except I like vampires, but there is a story behind my gamertag. My gamertag is RedShirt, which my boyfriend awarded to me a couple years back on X-Box. I now use that for any gaming purposes. It all started one day when he really wanted me to play a game with him, which I never play first person shooter. Anywho, he got me to play Halo with him and short story short, I died..a lot! After awhile my teammates just started using me as a shield since I'd die no matter what anyway and at least that way I'd have a purpose to stay in the game. We tried a few more games together and all I know how to do is die. I absolutely cannot play first person shooters. So he called me RedShirt referencing Star Trek and how the red shirts always die. Now I use it whenever I game because I like it. :)
Cuteh-Kitteh-Loveh Featured By Owner May 9, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Cuteh-Kitteh-Loveh is my username because, when I was making a dA account, I could NOT think of anything creative and my cat crawled onto me. And...that's about it.
