How did you 'think up' your username on here?

Mine's kinda funny...'Hey Nikki!' was inspired by this song called 'Hey Mickey.' At least, I think that's the song's name. All I know is that my friends used to sing it everyday for some reason back before summer started.

Nicole is my middle name, and a lot of people named Nicole are nicknamed 'Nikki' instead. And since Nikki rhymes with Mickey, I figured it was a cute name for me.

Mine is my name. Haha.
My old user name ho_hum was because I couldn't really think of anything. I'm not anything more than average and I thought it desribed me.

Well, about 5 years ago I was seriously considering converting to Islam, and my muslim friends and mentors told me I needed an arabic name. Khadra is the name I chose. I never ended up converting, but my muslim friends still refer to me as Khadra. I use it as a screen name because it's a pretty rare name that always seems to be available.

Lol. Toast is yummy and I eat a lot of it. Especially with Nutella. Also, a couple years ago my friends and I all gave ourselves food nicknames and I was Toast.

You'll have probably already guessed that my username is actually my real name.
My old username [Anesthetised] was just from some lyrics that I liked at the time, the word stood out to me, I guess.

Razzmatazz is the colour of a crayola crayon that was retired in 1993.
http://www.crayola.com/colorcensus/a....cfm?color=300
It is the colour I use for my text in chat.

I found this out after choosing my name.

At the time I had seen the word in a magazine and I just liked the alliteration and thought it sounded quite cool with the shortened version of my name.

I was known as SecretUpset on other forums, but wanted a bit of a change. I was used to people calling me Secret, and didn't really want my username to have my name in it. The Useless part comes from... Well, the fact that I view myself as Useless!

I have had many people ask me this question, so i might as well answer so i don't get more questions :P

When i was growing up i had an "Invisible" friend who i for some reason named Eaty, and i ended up using that name as usernames for stuff when i was younger, and i just haven't been able to let go of it yet. I truthfully do not remember why i named her that.

So there is the answer.

Mine is sk8rchik because I love to skateboard even though I don't have much time for it anymore.
Also the "chik" part just shows that I'm a girl that likes to skate since there are such few skater girls.
Thats pretty much it I just used the number because it's easier then typing out the whole name and I'm lazy.


Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.

I like art and I think frescoes are awesome. Fun fact: I haven't actually made one myself. lol I doubt that's of big interest but I don't know, maybe it counts for something. I was originally gonna put "sammy fresco" as my nickname, combining my real name and my "i think frescoes are cool" name but I thought fresco was just shorter, easier to remember, and less namesy.

I came up with udontno because at the time people really didn't know. I was also a poor grammar user (I was about ten when I started using this username on a website that shall remain nameless). Anyway, it has since stuck. When we had the reset, I thought about making my username Amanda but SO many people know me as udontno so I thought I'd keep it.

I think mine is from song lyrics. It's been that long since I choose it, but I like how haunting it is [:


"Life is pain, anybody that says different is selling something" ~ Fezzik's Mother, The Princess Bride. ♥

"To die, would be an awfully big adventure."~ Peter Pan

"Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumoured by many.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.
But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it."

~ The Buddha

My Nickname is my family's nickname for me. It came from a TV we used to watch alot when we were younger. And then my brother started to call it me because I'm the first (and living) female born into my family for about 5 gernerations. SO it stuck and now is my username for everything

Well mines an interesting one. I guess I got a story here.

I hate my username, but it came from 2 things. My real name is Angela and a lot of people still call me Angel. There was also a episode of doctor who which was called the weeping angels whcih I LOVE (yes I am a geek) and I'm one of those people who cries at an advert for pedigree chum (yes I have done that before) so it kinda all mingled together in my head.
