The meaning/story of your username

Postby Saka » January 2nd, 2018, 9:39 pm

Each name has a meaning.
A username is a name.
A username must have a meaning.
What is the meaning or story of your username?
For mine it's just my middle name (The name I get called by) nothing special.

No one knows exactly where my username came from, but the obvious theory about toroids is (probably) incorrect. The leading theory is that I just thought of it randomly. The theory also states that at some point I realized that it could be interpreted as a contraction from Tor O. Idalet (it isn't, as one of my posts somewhere says). What does it actually stand for, then, you may ask. Here's an answer, interview-style:
Reporter: What does your uersname stand for?
Idalet: I don't know man, I didn't do it. [completely unoriginal line from 20+ years ago, completely typical]
R: But it's your account.
I: What are you talking about? This account is public (provided you can find the password)
R: Why are we even going on some needless dialogue? What does your username stand for?
I: See hereᷝᷝᷝᷝᷝᷝᷝᷝᷝᷝ̂
R: How do you even pronounce that?
R: I'm out of here.
(DISCLAIMER: This interview is (at least) mostly fictional (yet))
I have the best signature ever.

Macbi was a charater in a fantasy book some friends and I had to write for school. I used it when I set up a RuneScape account and I've been using it as an online handle ever since.

I used to have a username based on my name (Edսardօ Gаrсía Раdillа, by the way). I changed my username in a videogame music composers' forum to Rhombic -randomly- and I guess I liked it. I actually use two different Rhombic usernames: Rhombic for the slightly more serious forums and rombik for and similar sites.

Ampere is obviously a word, but AMP are my initials, which I thought was cool. I realized after the fact that my username was very similar to A for Awesome's.
Things to work on:
