How'd you guys come up with your usernames?

Recommended Posts

Being a fan of the "Dark is not evil" trope and thinking about the cool sci-fi aspect of cores at the time (spur of the moment), I searched up words relating to darkness and noir was one that caught my attention for being unique. Which throws me off when I see the word again somewhere else. :P

well, my reddit, steam, and forum accts are uninspired fanboy shit (gray fox, phoenix wright). my very first psn account was particularly cringy, as i wanted to come up with something that i enjoyed but wasn't trite.

Who'd guess you'd choose Trite as your username later on.

Also, uh, mine is pretty self-explanatory. I also sometimes use Crissaegrim, which is named after the sword from The Silmarillion (but I had Alucard's Symphony of the Night sword in mind at the time). It's an ok step from <random_american_name> (not my name) the Hedgehog, which I used until my 14s and people more familiarized with me still call me by that, I guess.

Partly it reflects on my liking for such characters as the Anguished One from Devil Survivor 2, and Liptti and Teo from Radiant Historia.

Yet it also represents what I sorta wish I could in an ideal world do- observe humanity from afar, taking it all in for eons to come.

It all started with the Pokemon TCG for the gameboy color.

....

T,U, and V are right next to each other on the character name screen and I me and my brother needed something to end it with (it couldn't have been Tuv, thats just stupid) so we added a Y, which was also close to T,U, and V.

It stuck and here we are.

It’s the name of tha main character in the Deltora Quest series. Read DQ as a kid and really liked it, and I couldn’t think of any other name for my SF account. I use all kinds of names and don’t really stick with a single gamer tag.

I just used a random name generator for my current name, almost five years ago. I'm actually planning on changing it though, since I want to be more creative.

I came up with Byliyth because the MC of FETH is called Byleth, based off Beleth, the king of Hell. I just took the Byleth name, mixed it up with Bilith, another spelling of it, and make Byliyth~
