    Your User Name

    Why did you choose it, and what's the meaning behind it? As for myself, a good few years ago I took great interest in praying mantises. Funnily enough, I've never actually seen one. (Damn you, lucky Americans. They're banned from being sent into the wild here.) I've tried to see one at the zoo but they didn't have it available. In any case, they're just awesome.

    I love how alien they look. They're also very intelligent creatures. I'm tired of people thinking of insects as brainless when in fact many are just as—if not more intelligent—than a good number of mammals. In any case, after I started calling myself Mantis online it just stuck. I've yet to see or own a mantis, but until then I will continue to admire them. And when I do, I'll probably give it an Outlaw Star name. XD

    RE: Your User Name

    Amarante means unfading in Greek. I chose the name because I like to think that I have a very constant personality. Ive even been told I havent really changed since 8th grade. I think the alias Amarante suits me quite well.

    RE: Your User Name

    SethClanclan ... I'm sure everyone can guess where the origins of the name came from. That has been my online trade name since I was 13ish. Started with an AOL (Not AIM) account, then SethClanclan14 on AIM after switching ISPs.

    As for why, I wanted a name that would be associated with Ctarl-Ctarls, and since the spelling of Ctarl-Ctarl was in doubt for me at the time, I played it safe. The other reason has to do with my Outlaw Star role-play character who I created shortly after watching a few episodes during the show's first run on Cartoon network. He's grown to be as much a part of me as my head is a part of the body.

    There's another very important reason, perhaps more important than either of the other two, but it's something personal that I'd rather not open up to criticism.

    Just to tie that into Outlaw Star, I point to the first two lines of Anime Lyrics' translation of
    Through the Night
    Don't make fun of it! Don't destroy it! Don't cheapen it!
    That one thing everyone has that they won't give up.

    Asher Williams is my go to online alias ready for any occasion.
    I like the name Asher and I stole Williams from my best bud's surname.
    It does the job.

    RE: Your User Name

    Nixie the Pixie.

    My name is Nicola. Sometime ago, we had a music game (Music 2000?) for the PS and you could only put three letters in when you save. My sister put in Nix for me. I started using it online, but, typically, Nix was too short as a username and/or it was taken. Hammering home this point was when I joined a conversation on a school band website and used the name Nix, and they thought it was their bandmate, who went by the same name (Cause he's Nicholas). Thus I made it kinda girlie by adding "ie" to the end. However, Nixie is typically used everywhere, so I went to various forms of Nixie The Pixie
    You're asking for historical accuracy in a series where men weilding three swords in each hand, pirates surfing across land on giant anchors, horses with motocycle parts attached and feudal-era Power Rangers are the norm?

    RE: Your User Name

    Mine is a compound word of sorts:

    "Soma" is a vedic ritual drink made from a plant, and the drink is said to have Hallucinogenic properties, as the gods drink it.

    "Sol" is latin for the Sun, as in our Solar System.

    I was thinking of a Pseudonym that created a surreal image, so it could be interpreted as "Liquid Sun." I just like artsy stuff like that.
    The hilarity of the Chat Room:
    (01:14:54) Somasol: also, don't forget to hit the logout button. sometimes you'll see people in chat but they'll disappear the instant you enter.
    (01:15:32) Somasol: you'll be going "FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU?UUUUUUUUU" when that happens. XD
    (01:15:46) Somasol: anyway, g'night!
    (01:15:47) ChatBot: Somasol logs out of the Chat.
    (02:20:39) ChatBot: MajinCooler27 logs into the Chat.
    (02:20:42) ChatBot: Hannah has been logged out (Timeout).

    RE: Your User Name

    I came up with my username a while back when I decided to try a trail of Lord of the Rings Online, before it became free to play.

    I needed a username to fit in with the lore of the game, so I looked up a list of elvish names and I believe I then added to of them together to get Cuhathol. Unfortunately I can't remember what that name even means, so I don't know what it means or how to pronounce it either.

    There is one upside to that though, if I ever play on the Xbox and someone attempts to insult me, well they can't because they can't actually direct the insult at me.

    "Hey Cu..cu..hat..hol....how do you even pronounce it?"

    @Dymus:
    That's an interesting alternative there.
    You wouldn't happen to know why would ya?
    For my interest, you have peaked it.

    @Asher
    I'll take a guess as to your name, another fact is that is is Hebrew for 'Twin'... Maybe that could be incorporated into something
