Re: Reason Behind Your Username

I let my younger brother choose it, and he wanted to choose something about the Beatles because it's his favorite band, but it was taken, so then I just randomly suggested Tubasrock because the he plays the tuba, and it's one of our favorite instruments and he agreed, but wanted to add 77 because it's his favorite number. So there you have it!

Re: Reason Behind Your Username

I was once called Yuna-Lenne on other forums but a friend of mine said it was n00by so I changed it to something else; Lirael. I'm sure many of you will recognise the name from Garth Nix's books. Yup, yup. That was my reason. ^_^ It's the only book by him that I have finished. =]

Re: Reason Behind Your Username

Hmmm... Well, I've always loved Cyprus trees, and CAKE the band sings a song that says "dust devil Cyprus, ripening fruit..." I couldn't think of a word to go before that, so I looked on my electric keyboard and saw the tone calliope. Yup.

Re: Reason Behind Your Username

Mine is a name that I made up for my first forum about 10 years ago. The "Duffy" part is for my late, lamented Yorkie, who lived to be almost 17. The "Miss" part is for Mississippi where I have lived all but 2 months of my life.

The 59 is <ouch> the year I was born.

Re: Reason Behind Your Username

I kind of identify with Molly Weasley as I am also the mother of many rambunctious children and we aren't the wealthiest family in our town. I think I'm a little less shrill than Molly, actually, but I would AK anyone who tried to harm any of my children(and I'd probably use some choice words while doing it, too.)

I wanted to be MamaWeasley, but it was already taken.

Re: Reason Behind Your Username

Apparently quidditch rhymes with witch, and I couldn't fit in the two ds. And I've been on the forums for two years so I guess it's the type of thing that I would have called myself at age thirteen.

I've grown to like it anyway.

Re: Reason Behind Your Username

Well, I don’t know if any of you have heard of the “Inklings”, but it was a writer’s group that both JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis belonged to for many years. I greatly admire both those writers, I’d just been learning about it right before I joined here, and I love writing. I am obviously not of that generation though, so I am a ModernInkling.

Looking back now, it seems a bit big-headed to call myself that… but I still like it

Re: Reason Behind Your Username

Back in the day I had glasses, knew nothing of Harry Potter, and was called Harry Potter by people who didn't know my name (I looked like Harry;there was no Daniel Radcliffe back then). I actually hated Harry Potter. Once I tried to read the book, got to the second page and was bored ('The Dursley's can keep there secret' I thought.) But after going to see the movie with my aunt, I became a bit of a HP freak. My friend nicknamed me Arry Grotter, using the start of my name and the end of Harry's for each word. I usually just use Arry as Grotter sounds a bit grotty.

Re: Reason Behind Your Username

Well, way back when I was still in University, I read a book by Timothy Zahn, set in the Star Wars expanded universe. In it there was a character name Khabarakh, who had a very honorable approach on life.
Unluckily for me, my portuguese edition was typoed...the name appeared as Kharabakh for more than half the book (the remaining volume had the correct name, so there's no mistake on my part).
Hence, I've been using Kharabakh since 1992.

Khar

Re: Reason Behind Your Username

Clearly, I was on a RENT obsession. I sorta wish I could change it now, as I'm not watching that movie or listening to the soundtrack everyday any more, but ah well. It has served me well on this forum for a long time.

Re: Reason Behind Your Username

I got my screen name from the Manga series "Ayashi no Ceres" ("Ceres: Celestial Legend" in America) by Yuu Watase. Tennyo is the the Japanese word for female tenshi (Japanese for angel), or so I have been told. Either way, the series is about a girl named Aya who discovers that she is the reincarnation of a powerful tennyo named Ceres. Hence, I use Tennyo as my name on a lot of forums.

Re: Reason Behind Your Username

I decided to do something relating to HP (hence 'Bloodtraitor') and I like the number 13
(It had nothing to do with my age at the time, I didn't even realise until last month)
