    Arthellion was actually the name of a character I chose in a D&D campaign. Was a lovable character so I stuck with it.

    Silirt has been my ffn account name for years. I think I was proud of some object I managed to enchant in Oblivion, which increased my sneaking ability somehow. That said, this was a while ago.

    Mine's actually kinda similar. Agayek was the name of my first Baldur's Gate character, and I just ran with it when the internet and usernames started becoming a more common thing.

    Yes, but funnily enough this nickname wasn't from any of them.
    Uts are the first three letters of my name, so that makes a little more sense.

    It was my first online username going back to crappy MMORPGs back in 2001/2002.

    I played Brood War and I lurked the forums for years. Would change to my punnier username but I prefer not to unify all my social media and gaming handles.

    It's been my online username since my earliest Call of Duty days. "Scott" is derived from an obscure video game protagonist, then I added the "surname" so the whole thing would stand out from the online crowd of Scotts.

    Made it up. Wanted something that sounded decently cool that wasn’t very obviously edge-lord (like all my previous names)

    It's my real name. Or rather it will be once the whole gender stuff is finished in courts.

    In highschool, my best friend wrote pseudo-fantasy stories with the characters named after people of our class. Being his best friend I had a right to a second character, and he was named Goten Askil. I still have this pseudo basically everywhere on the interwebs.

    Lul. Fair. I had you down as an edgelord, biebergirl96.

    Blorcyn is actually my given name, but it's so unusual that no one realises.
    Orrrrrrrrr, it's the Rohan male option I chose from the Hobbit name translator circa. 2002

    My original name, Ellisande, came from the Wheel of Time. I liked the way it sounded and went with it. When I got older, I realised it was a bit girly. So I had to come up with something else. I've never been one for coming up with names, and at the time I remember reading something which said 'In nomine' in latin, which is 'In the name of', which I thought sounded cool. So I went with that.

    And of course, now I get called 'Inno' ''mine' all the time haha.

    Still hate choosing name handles for myself, so I've just stuck with it.

    That's biebergrl96 to you, bud. And it was a name I was carefully selected for-- a torch for me to hold for a fleeting moment.

    I've been pronouncing it "Inno-mee-nae" in my head this entire time.
