RE: Origin of your username - EHPrybylski - April 23rd, 2014

I have a few usernames, though I've started using this one as my professional one. It's just my name - nothing special. The others are a little more interesting.

"The Sentinel" - I use this one on several metaphysics/spirituality boards I frequent, and it is indicative of what I see myself as. I kind of view myself as a protector or guardian.

"Archimedes" - This was a character I played a LOT for a long time, and it kind of stuck.


RE: Origin of your username - Ebelle - April 24th, 2014

It came from "Abele". I felt as though Abele looked too manly, so I simply changed it to "Abelle". Unfortunately, many sites and games would tell me that name was already in use. Eventually I ended up changing it to "Ebelle". I thought it looked and sounded better. It also reminds me of the name Isabelle. It's quite pretty, in my own opinion.


RE: Origin of your username - Thomas - April 25th, 2014

It's my name


RE: Origin of your username - Sabs - April 25th, 2014

I wanted to deviate from my usual usernames so I decided upon this one. My favorite TV series is Sabrina the Teenage Witch and that's the nickname that Harvey gives her.


RE: Origin of your username - Warwick - May 15th, 2014

It's from the pokemon Alakazam, cause I really like his abilities, and I have been using this username online for several years. Alakazam is a pokemon with a very high IQ and with telekinetic powers, and I've always wanted telekinesis to be real...


RE: Origin of your username - Guardian - June 9th, 2018

I started playing Total Annihilation back in '98, and always played as the ARM. My favorite strategy was making an impenetrable defense before I went on the offense. I did that by building tons of Defenders (quick firing rocket battery) and Guardians (slower firing artillery gun). Both go perfectly in line with my career path. I was a US Marine for 9 years, and my current job is Cyber Security. So, either one would have been a perfect choice in a description of me personally. Then I just went with Guardian because it sounded better to me. Tongue


RE: Origin of your username - Martin - June 10th, 2018

It’s my name, believe it or not Tongue


RE: Origin of your username - Thomas - June 10th, 2018

It's not my name


RE: Origin of your username - SpookyZalost - June 10th, 2018

I've always sort of idolized mad scientists tesla being my hero and all but believe it or not my username came from curage the cowardly dog.

one of the best episodes ever was called the tower of Doctor Zalost featuring a mad scientist in a mechanized tower walker tread thing firing semi-corporeal cannonballs that make people depressed.

the whole episode is a story of redemption and the power of love/kindness over depression and evil but the soundtrack... man that soundtrack... hold on.



early 00's cartoon network... sigh, my youth -_-

RE: Origin of your username - Shadow Seesaw - February 8th, 2020

My username is my favorite song by Kim Tae-hyung aka V from BTS who are my favorite boy group right now. V released the song back in August of 2019 and it's completely in English. I was so proud of him do that since English isn't his first language because it's a big accomplishment. The title sound so cool than I decided to use as my username on forums and I add the two little bear icons on either side to make look even more unique.


RE: Origin of your username - Juneberry - February 8th, 2020

My username is my favorite berry, which grows wild in a town not far from me during temperate seasons. I changed to this during high school, when my therapist said I had to stop using my original handle (little) because it was causing my self esteem to plummet further.


RE: Origin of your username - JennyorAlice - March 20th, 2020

Mine comes from a book series I've read and enjoyed. There are two female characters in the series that I happen to like but I couldn't choose between them so I just added them both into my username. So that's where "JennyorAlice" came from. It's just both their names with an "or" in the middle.


RE: Origin of your username - Kim Winchester - August 3rd, 2020

I roleplay off and on from time to time and this is my original character's name. She is the sister to Sam and Dean Winchester(if they had one).
