How'd you all make your usernames? Always found the stories behind people's usernames interesting. I'll put it up whoever comments.
1Falls of Rauros
The light that dwells in rotten wood

Mine's pretty simple. I used to play kingdedede a lot on smash bros with my friends, and so I decided when I made my first league of legends account I'd name it "kingdedethefifth" because I misspelled kingdedede like a cunt and thought saying the fifth was funny and had a nice ring to it. So yeah that's what I named this account.
2Shade Empire
Omega Arcane

Drifter-"The way I got mine was I was sitting in my room trying to think of a really good name for this site and so I started thinking of characters in video games and I thought of "The Lonesome Drifter" from Fallout: New Vegas and thought it was genius"
3Imperial circus dead decadence
Sangeki no Chi ni Kagayaku Somatta Ai to Zetsubou

The sound of perseverance

Evilford-"I started out as ford84prefect. which dom will never let me forget lol...I'm a fan of both the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy books and the movie, and I love Ford Prefect, especially mos def in the movie. and I love the band Death (obvssssssssssssssssss) and I got the "evil" prefix from Chuck's "evilChuck" so combined for "evilford" and wallah"

The academy-"i bought this account from a once prominent user for 300 dollars"

Ephemeraleternity-"Title of a song / some meaningless but semi cool sounding oxymoron

In any case it's probably better than my last few"
7Deathspell omega

Undineparty-I've always liked mythology from all over the world and I'm also a water sign (July 14th) and party because I like messing around and having fun

Cryptologuous-"i wanted a name that looks like a real word but isn't and is thus not taken on any form of social media. was surprised to find no one had taken my name on basically any platform, regardless of me only coining it when i first joined sput"
9Killswitch engage
The end of heartache

Aliensobserver-"name of a grouper album. got it changed to what it is now after being bullied for my old handle being a twenty one pilots song (heavydirtysoul). glad i couldn't take the tough love though because this name is much better shout out to jom"
Cryptic writings

Mynameispencil-"I had no idea what to put as I didn't want to use my steam username and I saw a pencil on my desk and the rest is history.

or the cooler, very much a lie story is a vague ode to a Drives Like Jehu song"
11Cattle decapitation
Monolith of inhumanity

Deschutes-"I'm a simple man, so mine's fairly simple: I was drinking a Deschutes Black Butte Porter while creating my profile, Deschutes wasn't taken, so I went with it."

Adolfchrist-"years ago i got banned for something really stupid, so i made an offensive account name involving Hitler, just trying to be edgy and piss off the mods. after a few Hitler accounts got banned, i ended up making my next account JesusHitler named after the Carnivore song. that one got banned too so i made a variation of that and here we are."
13Katy Perry
Teenage dream

Ebola-"i think it's a funny word"

Dark Light

Dewinged-"It's a song title I wrote some years ago, about getting confronted with reality when trying to live a dream, cheesy, I know. Also couldn't find it in google and that makes me feel... shpecial."
None So Vile

Meatsalad-"some shit inside joke I've completely forgotten the details about from when I was 16-17"

Deathschool-"it's like life, because life is just learning how to die"

Budgie-"the band"
A Blaze in the Northern Sky

ScuroFantasma-"Stole the Scuro bit from Ghost's "Con Clavi Con Dio", stole the Fantasma bit from...somewhere. Separately they were just words I thought sounded cool, and I put them together because they kinda juxtapose, a Dark Phantom as it were."
Slumber of Sullen Eyes

demigod!-"I was really into slumber when I was 16"
22The Ghost Inside
Get What You Give

Steakbyrnes-"I simply love steak for the most part, but when I first got into high school I made a lot of new friends. I got close to a couple of them and got invited to a stayover to play video games all night, and we started playing Marvel Ultimate Alliance and I needed to sign in to a tag. Low and behold "Steak" was one of the options, and me just saying it had everybody laughing, and from then on my friends started referring to me as Steak, and it stuck. Byrnes is my last name so I just combined the two"

24David Bowie

TVC15-"Contrary to popular belief my first username LPFTW did not stand for Linkin Park for the Win, however people have told me what it actually stands for is much worse. When I changed the name, I was starting to really dig Bowie's Thin White Duke stuff (prior to that I've inly heard his deep cuts, Earthling, Outside, and The Man Who Sold the World). Basically TVC15 is a Bowie song"
The Flesh Prevails

Rigmarole-"rigmarole is a word that describes my life"

UniqueUniverse-"I think I just saw it somewhere (maybe it was even someone else's username on another website) and I liked it so much at the time that I kept it (Looking back at it now, I probably should have chosen something else)...yeah, not exactly an inspirational story, aye?"

32Alkaline Trio
Good Mourning

Mercurytohell-"Alkaline Trio's 'Blue In The Face'.

And all that followed fell, like mercury to hell, somehow we lost our heads for the last time."

Anatelier-"i can't remember"
Dol Guldur

Sweeneytodd-"Mine just comes from a nickname I got in college, back then I had jet black hair, and it was big and messy. For whatever reason, a streak of my hair started turning blonde, and eventually turned grey. I liked it so I didn't dye it, and people started calling me "Sweeney Todd", after the character's appearance in Tim Burtons adaption. Since leaving college and losing touch with old friends, and my hair now being a dirty blonde, the nickname died out, but I associate it with the fonder memories of my youth"
35This or the Apocalypse
Haunt What's Left

Thiswastheyear-"one of my friends was in a band called "this was the year to lose friends", I always kinda dug it -- popped into my head when i was making my account on here 7 years ago but i haven't used it for anything else tbh"
Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)

ZippaThaRippa-"I was originally Zippermouth, after the cover of Slipknot's Vol. 3. Then I got banned. Came back as just Zip, since that's what most people called me. Then I got banned.

So I combined Zip with the video game Parappa The Rapper, a game I have never played.

42Porcupine Tree
The Sky Moves Sideways

BlazinBlitzer-"Ready for cringe?

I asked my brother to come up with a Minecraft name for me, and since my favorite Pokemon type was Fire, and I really liked football, he came up with BlazinBlitzer. I used that alias for about 4 years until I moved on to SidewaysSky (from the Porcupine Tree song "The Sky Moves Sideways")."

Tyler-"I have no idea"
44Black Malachite

BlackMalachite-"My original "ASnideRemark" (had a lurking account before then but didn't do anything so I'm considering my snide one my first one) was basically because I made snide remarks.

"ASnideReturns" because I was Snide, and I returned.

"BlackMalachite" because of my project "Black Malachite"

Also if you haven't checked Void it's pretty good btw

Sinternet-"so my original account was called astorian or something around that because the goonies but that either got nuked/banned or something w/e I barely used it

Sinternet came from a joke when i was like 14 with some friends about a browser just for porn which was Sinternet Sexplorer and over time it just shortened"

Teamster-"I've been a member of International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 200 for 26 years."
Call Of The Wretched Sea

Tunaboy45-"Tunaboy45- my old football teammates used to call me 'tunaboy' because whenever we had a tournament I'd always take tuna sandwiches for dinner and the '45' because tunaboy without a number was already taken so naturally I went straight to 45."
52Red Hot Chili Peppers
Stadium Arcadium

Storm in a tea cup-"Been Storm In A Teacup for over ten years. It is the best Red Hot Chili Peppers song off of Stadium Arcadium. Also, I was Kripes for two years before Storm. That was just a random username because I was like "cripes I can't think of a username". The K made it more unique."
Fundamental Elements of Southtown

Satellite-"i'm a huge p.o.d. fan"
54Giant Squid
The Ichthyologist

Sevengill-"Straight up the song from Giant Squid, whom you need to listen to if you haven't. the song is from the point of view of sharks waiting for a man to jump off a bridge while his wife tries to talk him out of it. It's morbid and beautiful.

I like sharks.

They get fed in the end."

Also yeah Giant Squid rules pretty hard.

Make It Big

wham49-"my nickname and my college baseball number"
58Artificial Brain
Labyrinth Constellation

Xenorazr-"At the time I was really into the Alien movies and thought Hellraiser was a really cool-sounding name, so I thought "hey, they refer to the Aliens as 'xenomorphs' and I like the sound of Hellraiser, so why not combine the two? Xenoraiser." Besides, how crazy would it be to just summon Xenomorphs, kind of like an Alien queen on fast-forward? Shortened it to Xenorazr because every site I tried using the full name on apparently had someone else with that username."

Jasdevi087-"Anime character, random numbers unfortunately"

Neekafat-"I had a dog who's name was Neeka who was also fat. She's dead now. It's also the name of my film studio and basically everything else on social media."
61Caladan Brood
Echoes Of Battle

Gameofmetal-"Uh I liked Game of Thrones a lot and metal so I slapped them together really lazily. Now it would just feel wrong to change."

TheMrAlexK-"One time in like 6th grade my teacher asked the class to make an account on this classroom type website. Me and a friend thought it would be funny to add a whole bunch of words in front of our names to make them sound cooler then everyone elses. These girls thought it was hillarious so we pushed it to the absolute limit and got yelled at by the teacher and made us shorten them, and TheMrAlexK was the remnant of all that, and it's kinda just stuck with me over the years. I don't really like it that much anymore though."

64Cradle of Filth

piglet-"My name is Patrick Glen Taylor




hesperus-"i took mine from the 5ive album. not because i liked the album a whole lot (it's a cool album, but not one of my favorites ever), just because i thought the title sounded cool. and it was also the name of a person (or rather, a figure from greek mythology) so it worked well as a username"
With Tired Arms, Tired Eyes, Tired Souls

Arcane Rain Fell

BlushfulHippocrene-"All of these are so interesting... Mine's just a pretentious Keats reference from 'Ode to a Nightingale:' "O for a beaker full of the warm South,/ Full of the true, the blushful Hippocrene." Just something I've loved since I read it; Hippocrene's a fountain on Mt. Helicon in Greek mythology, and it's supposed to be a source of poetic inspiration and whatnot. Chose it on a whim because I was writing a lot at the time and I needed a username. Kinda wish I picked something cooler sounding, but it works."
69Living Colour

RosaParks-"Rosa Louise McCauley Parks (February 4, 1913 – October 24, 2005) was an activist in the Civil Rights Movement , whom the United States Congress called "the first lady of civil rights" and "the mother of the freedom movement".[1] Her birthday, February 4, and the day she was arrested, December 1, have both become Rosa Parks Day, commemorated in California and Missouri (February 4), and Ohio and Oregon (December 1).

On December 1, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, Parks refused to obey bus driver James F. Blake's order to give up her seat in the colored section to a white passenger, after the white section was filled. Parks was not the first person to resist bus segregation. Others had taken similar steps, including Bayard Rustin in 1942,[2] Irene Morgan in 1946, Sarah Louise Keys in 1952, and the members of the ultimately successful Browder v. Gayle 1956 lawsuit (Claudette Colvin, Aurelia Browder, Susie McDonald, and Mary Louise Smith) who were arrested in Montgomery for not "

75Bloc Party
Silent Alarm

A Ghost is Born

AmericanFlagAsh-"Wilco's Ashes of American Flags is one of my favorite songs, but also like political reasons because trivial things like flag burning make people upset."

Dbizzles-"My middle and last initials are D.B. which is what most of my friends call me. I also think there was a Brand New shirt way back in the day that said Brand Nizzle, so that may have contributed, idk.

81Aesop Rock
