Well, I always thought of ravens as my spiritual animal, and Antioch is a name I'm pretty fixated on for some reason (besides it being the name of a historically important ancient city, of course...), so I decided to put the two together ^_^

Xylael (yes, capitalized) was actually the name of a character I scrapped pretty much right away. I needed a pseudonym so I chose it because it was weird. And somewhere along the way, I wanted the capitalization gone. So now I'm just xylael, and it's a sort of nickname now.

LuigiUser Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Whoa...big post. ^^;

The name LuigiUser is a name I thought of myslef, I thought because I use Luigi instead of Mario in mario games all the time. ...way back as far back as I can remember, me and my older brother older, happen to get nintendo (NES) for christmas back when it first come out, being really young at the time, all I did was watch, but as I got older, I decided to try it myself, and from that moment on...my life changed forever, whenever we played together, the rule was he'd have to be player 1 and me, player 2, well...this happen when were playing super mario bros. and since i was player two, i got luigi, when when i played i'd always see that green person, as time went on, the super nintendo was made, same situation, I'm Luigi and my older is Mario, and every once in awhile when I had a some time to myslef to alone, it didn't feel right, playing with mario, playing as my brothers character. as that time, it feel that Luigi was part of me, and up to this day...i still countinue to use Luigi. and just like in real life, I just happen to get just attention compared to my brother. another strange conquince is, well, since the general idea is Peach gets Mario, (and I use that term lighty with you. ^^;) and Luigis get Daisy, since I resemble Luigi, that means I get Daisy. :w00t: I've been using this username for 3 years now and my IRL frineds and family have no idea its me.

LuigiUser: one who uses Luigi.

A manga.. but my own.. it's the name of the main pirate character in my series.. Captain Caribbean Blue.. I used it cause people know me as The Captain from the live cosplay I've done of her at Univeral and conventions... so I figuired a combination of my hand drawn pic as an avatar and the name would help people recognize that I'm the same person that draws the series and acts as the character. :)

SpiritKiller Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2005  Hobbyist Writer
My nickname, also my character's name, occured from the single word that remained through all my nicknames, Killer, in combination with a reference to my chara's powers, Spirit. Thus Spirit Killer was born (out of the ashes of Da Killer, which replaced Ze Killer, which gave the boot to Killer253, and that would be the end of the railroad). XD

I got mine while trying to create a website.
I was looking for a free template to start off on and I found one called INVADER and was based on the classic 'Invaders' video game. Because I didn't want this as my site name I changed it by adding an X to the start which was brought on by the X parasite from 'Metroid: Fusion'.
I started to use it as my nickname as it was different than my usual name of GOLDENCHOCOBO and almost no one else has it...

VulgarisPrime Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2005
To explain:

Vulgaris is a Latin term which means "common". It pops up often in the biological sciences.

Prime is a reference to the Transformers fans I make friends of, as a few TFs have the suffix of "Prime" in their names (obvious example: Optimus Prime).

Jago-Mizukami Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
1. My email uses it...
2. Named after my Anime/Manga character Jago Mizukami.
Who was made from a combination of traits from DBZ, Sailormoon, Tenchimuyo!, and Inuyasha. He is Saiya-Jurai-jin.

I've used this name... for quite a while... since about 1999 or so... before I even joined Deviantart... His character changed appearance wise for a while before I settled on his present design... but basically that's where I came up with the name... "Jago" sounded cool to me, also the name of a character in Killer Instinct... while "Mizukami" just means "Water-Spirit" or "Water-God"... anyway that's the origin of my Deviantart name / my email.

It's the name of my most used character, Dynamo, but shortened to Dyn, since Dynamo might make me sound like a brand of gum, detergent, or a cheesy sci-fi character. And the number "777", comes from the fact that many people consider me to be lucky. You have some prety fun polls.

RockStarRoku Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2005
"Roku" is Japanese for 6, and is also the name of my favorite Pop'n Music character. Roku is also seen in the BG of the song "Daikenkai" in DDR, which is how I actually found out who he is. XD

As for the "RockStar" part, I've been using different names (first one EVER was RockStarRoku) with those words in front of it since ninth grade. That's about four years for me. XD

When I first found out who he was, I immediately adopted "Roku" as my Dance Dance Revolution nickname, and it grew to become something that people called me on a regular basis, so it just stuck. :3
