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.
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. I've been using this username for 3 years now and my IRL frineds and family have no idea its me.
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.
mine is half the name of a cat character i drew a long time ago, i called it sylph - meaning spirit cat. the only way my friend could remember it was by calling it Sylphcat cos he kept forgetting it so thats what stuck! i hated it at first, then it kinda grew on me *shrugs* ^___^
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...
When I was young, I had a white manx that loved sugar cubes...
From there, the name was born
P.S. My next cat after that was a balinese cat that was trained in the art of flushing toilets *lol* (Yes, I trained it). If I named myself after that cat, I probably would've been called "2000 flushes" or something
I got mine from a book >_< I was reading it when trying to think up an e-mail name, and I liked it. I actually remembered it wrong, it's supposed to be Dominion not Domain. I think mine is better ^_^ Now I use it everywhere.
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.
My name comes from another person. My best friend and her now ex-boyfriend were Amethyst Rose and Emerald Pheonix, and came up with Garnet Faerie for me. I originally wanted ~garnetfaerie as my name; but alas, it was already taken.
