This is thread to tell what your username means for you. Why did you choose it? What does it stand for? Basically, why do you like it. If you have kept your real name as your username, then what does your name mean? Well, go ahead and explain as much as you like...

Dennaix is a character in the books I'm writing... He's not my favorite, I just like the name. Although I draw several parallels with the character and myself.

My username is my real name and I think most of you already know that. Although, I only keep it because this is what you guys and gals used to call me and known me for. But, based on some research that I did, the name Georgia (thats supposed to be the correct spelling of my name but I don't know why my parents made it Giorgia instead of that) pronounced as Jor-jah is an extremely popular name of Greek origin. The name is the feminine form of the name George and is derived from the word georgios which basically means to till the land and signifies a farmer . The different forms of the name are Georgina, Georgette, George and Georgie.

Now if you ask me, all those forms of Georgea has been used by some people. I've been called by those names but George is what people really calls me.

Also, Giorgia means 'Princess of the stars loved by many people and is drawn with a turqouise love heart.' (source: Yahoo answers). Also, from Zelo site, it says that my name means a tiller of the soil which I think is my name really means. No wonder...

Yes I think everyone knows that, but why 'Pearl Song'?

Firesword because, to put it bluntly, I'm obsessed with fire and the because I like swords. The assassin because I didn't just want to be known as Firesword and the idea of assassinating people is pretty cool- and because I like playing on Assassin's Creed.

Keith is my real name in case you havnt figred that one out yet

It is of celtic or gaelic origon which makes sense seeing as how some of my ancesters came from the region that the celts were from.
It means warrior descending

It also can mean fromt he battle field in irish.
In scottish it means wood. from the battlefield.
But yet most places it says it means woodland, and from the battlefield.

Chosen for you on IF? I didn't know they had a system for that. It was a risk though. You may have ended up with something like 'Lemon Drop Kid'...

It was from the 'name change' thread the only clue they gave us was 'crown' and it turned out to be race horse names.

Mmm...Rain Stinks has some really weird history.

OK, I used to be really big into RuneScape (MMORPG), and my original character (You Miggits) got stolen, so I had to create another one. Rain Stinks was the first thing to come to me, and it's kind of ironic/true.

How?
1) Acid rain can stink.

2) I love rain.

Anyways, I always use the name since, and it's just something that's became an alternate personality of sorts from me. Just like Shadow and Stallion. I use Shadow for consol games where I get to name my character, and Stallion is the main name I use in my book The War: First Blood. Every one of these names is a kind of alternate me. Each has different attributes that make me who I am, but are always shoved away.

As Shadow, I'm a bad ass. I'm outwardly arrogant/confident, actually showing it.

As Stallion, I'm more athletic/quick-witted than normal. I'm just more epic than I normally can be.

As Rain Stinks, I'm just more collected, calm, authoritative than I normally let myself be. I'm more in charge of the situation and more willing to speak my mind.

Am I bit of a psycho? Yeah. Multi-personality disorder (or whatever it's called)? To some extent. I'm different depending on which name I'm in.

In other words, Rain Stinks isn't just a user name for me, it's a part of my, a bit of my soul. It is a word that has became something to define who I am.

Hmm, my turn I guess.

The 'Ar' part stands for 'Artemis', Greek goddess of the hunt, goddess of the moon and goddess of the wild.

The 'Train' part stands for an anime character who is shown to be almost as lazy as I am.

There's a bit more to it but you will only understand it if you watch the anime, so this shall do for now...

Well my turn...why not I guess. 'Sophia' come from the Ancient Greek 'Sofya', which means wisdom. Ironic right?
I don't have any Greek blood, but it is also an Arabic name which suited my dad just fine and the fact that there is a Hungarian version 'Zsofia' made my mum happy. So I guess that is it. Not very interesting...

I chose Benevolent Survivor because of a recent struggle I've overcome.Benevolent is in the name because I consider myself a peaceful guy,and Survivor because I've survived this long.Combining the two gives you Benevolent Survivor.

Good choice JoM. The only problem will be you will have to endure people calling you BS Razz Perhaps you could make a new shortform for yourself...

My name is a confusing concept, and I guess I find it intriguing, the word and what it means. XD

Talon Blade is a derivitive of my normal username that I use, Talonkarrde07. When I joined IF (Trust me I've only posted there 12 times) I was going to use my username I use for everything, the afore-mention usahname. But then I decided that since it was about Eragon that it need something down-to-earth in a way, and I'm like "Well I already have Talon, that's dragony, add Blade to it and you've got a good name for IF" So I used that. Then when CC brought a very skeptical me to Battle Zone, I decided that since I only knew two people there, (GG and CC) and they both new me by Talon Blade, I'd go with that. Now it's temporarily Captain tezuka, which comes from a Japanese Manga / Anime entitled Prince of Tennis.
