    I use this name if a few places. Surprise surprise but im a furry and my main character is a female fox named Vora so Vora_Vixen.
    Though i'm using another Character of mine as a icon here since he is more a demi human since this is not a furry forum.
    I paid to have this icon drawn for me of this character so its a custom icon. ''Donut steel'' lol

    Ehao_Truth is an anagram of my real name. And the avatar is the constant reminder of the past that I must bear with me for the rests of my life.

    in fashion class we had to come up with a fashion company name, and i used combined my username Feta_Chi (derived from feta cheese) into (Fe)Tachi Works bc adding works after something made it sound official like a business (water works, ink works, iron works etc). Therefore Tachi WOrks

    Originally, I go by the name Luca. But since that was taken, I also go by the uncommon spelling of the same name (which is Lukha). As a weird science girl, I liked the name and thought it was cool because it also related to biology which was one of my favorite subjects in school. LUCA=Last Universal Common Ancestor. And also it was the name of one of my favorite characters in a manga called Immortal Rain. Hnng, the memories.

    I came up with it waaaay back, more than a decade by now, and use it pretty much all the time whenever I sign up somewhere.
    I think I had on some other site written it's whole, long creation...but can't remember where it was now, che. Once I do, I'll post it here cuz the short version wouldn't do it justice, for I do love symbolism and mine is full with it.

    As for the avatar, usually I choose the one where I am, but this time for some reason decided to go with anime one - Cheza from Wolf's Rain. WR was my very first anime (pokemon & such not included) when I became aware of the term anime and got dragged into the anime world XD
    WR is still among my favourite animes, sooo, Cheza it is ;)

    Edit: aha, remembered! It was on myanimelist!
    So, here goes, copy & paste :D
    My real name is a flower- Buttercup in English, but in Latvian it's Gundega (a kind of a rare girl's name in Latvia, but nothing unusual) - so I'm partial to flower names.

    Thus I picked Rose cuz it's both beautiful but also has thorns. And the 2nd part Mary is cuz I sort of love long/two part names, all those Elizabeth's, Rosemary's, Alexander's and such.

    So with Rose I automatically thought of Rosemary.

    And since I do like the words meaning from it's Latin origins "dew of the sea" because water is supposedly my element (which is kind of ironic since Gundega derives it's name in Latvian from the plant's fiery ability) I thought it fit perfectly cuz my personality is rather a conundrum at times and not to mention rosemary is a plant and buttercup a flower - perfect. And to add to it's perfectness rosemary can be also called anthos, from ancient Greek, meaning "flower".

    Thus Rosemary was chosen. For it's truly perfect for me.
    But since I love my motherland, as a way to show this connection to my Latvian roots as I started to roam around the net in foreign tongue, I decided to show it by changing Rose's writing - I write it in Latvian as it is pronounced when said in English thus Rose -> Rouz

    Therefore my username in like, 99% of all the places I am on is Rouzmary ^^
    And even thou the writing is different, it's to be read/pronounced the same as Rosemary ;)

    I do like symbolism and deeper meanings XD
    Also, I came up with it waaay back in 2005 when I was 13 yo and more than a decade later I still love it and use it ;D

    Bob is a spirit in the Urban Fantasy book series "Dresden Files" He is unaging and has an epidemic memory making him a very useful companion for learning about spells, potions, and creatures. He provides alot of comedic relief in those books :).
    I usually pick this name if my first 3 or 4 attempted usernames fail.

    Took "nox" from nox cherubim in maplestory and combined it with obsidian = noxidian. I honestly just like the way it sounds, though I think the meaning of it isn't too bad (obsidian of the night, nocturnal rock, whatever lmao)

    Was signing up for a throwaway account a few months back and had to think of a quick 'n easy name on the spot. It was available, so I just went ahead with it. Strangely, on several sites I've been on, nobody's taken it yet, so I just kept reusing. (I doubt the same can the said for more active/popular sites though--I haven't tried--so if you see someone out there named "gingerale," it probably isn't me.)

    eh? we don't have 'it's my name' option :p:blob_grin::blob_grin::blob_grin:
    i have the same username for my IG so i just use it. it's kind of my 'adult' username since my coworkers and friends know me by my name and using my other username sound 'childish'

    my other username are kumiho.vixen / kumihovixen / kumiho
    i mostly use that for my art acc or game username. it's has been those since 2005. i really attached to this username 'Kumiho'. That time, Yu Yu Hakusho was aired for the first time in my local TV and i like Kurama very much. i choose fox as my fav animal then. Kumiho is a nine-tailed demon fox, so there is my username. :blob_grin:

    my avatar is my recent fanart of Rika from Mystic Messenger tho. will be changed when i have another art
