Just a little thing. Basically you just give why you chose the name you did or how you came up with it. I'll start.

I got my username from a "Which vampire type are you?" quiz. I ended up getting the Serafina type of vampire. Of course, that being a VERY feminine name I did a little tweaking to get my current name. Also, random trivia, Serafina means The Burning One in Italian I believe.

The katakana reading of Vanessa is バネッサ (ba-ne-ssa), or something.

So I shortened it to バニ (Bani).

Baniita happened because "Bani" is often taken.

Ketaya was the name of my very first RPG character. I made it up at the time and it kinda stuck (:

I "choose" my nickname randomly.
I used a random name generator

'Vanilla' is the name of a character from an anime I really like: Galaxy Angel. It's pretty much my standard name for any site I join on the net.
I actually have it as Vanilla-San more often than not on internet forums, but I decided to leave the honorific off this time around.

A long, long time ago I was browsing InuYasha pictures on Google. One site's name was puppy ears, or something. And I thought, "WHAT AN ADORABLE NAME I TOTALLY WANT TO USE IT!" But I didn't want to outright copy it, so I tweaked it.
And I like dogs and wolves and people with dog/wolf ears, so. :D

There's this song by one of my favorite artists: Kono Sekai ni Ikite by Yano Maki. Ever since then, I've just used KonoSekai, because I really loved the song. Still do. It's a heck of a lot of fun to sing.

Lol Longish story behind mine.
To make it short: It's my default name when I join sites.

I had a guitar named Gryffon, because it was Lyon brand [Which reminds me of course of Gryffindor, from Harry Potter].

One day I slapped Cherry in front of it and it just stuck. I love it XD
And, pretty much no one else has this name, or spelling :D

I always hoped for that! /creeper mode off

Mine comes from an OC of a friend. I really like that guy and his role in her universe, so it somehow slowly became my second online alias, for when I don't feel like registering with my usual one...

This was my most common username as a kiddo. It was based off a type of color scheme for a dragon - which was called Lunar - but since people already beat me to it, I end up having two a's instead of one.

Well it's a combination of my favourite flower (Rose), I thought Rosie made it sound nicer, kinda like a loving grandmother that still likes to work in the garden and thinks animals are cute but gets stuff done. Green because i love grass type pokemon. Wood because I used that as part of my psuedo facebook account I made so I could play games with myself on facebook even though none of my other friends were into or had time for facebook games. The wood came from the Ghosts of Mistwood game I made it for.

In grade 4 I couldn't think of a name for my MapleStory character, so my cousin typed in the first thing he could think of for me and created the character before I could protest.

It kind of stuck.

Media is a spell from the MegaTen series, so I did that but with an 's' at the end for Medias. -o-
it also kinda became my nickname since it's my screen-name on a lot of other sites as well...

I used to love Squaresoft & Enix when I was a child <:
So Enix became my nickname in almost every social network. {Or Énix, with the '´'}

My name was derived from the name of my noble nation in Nationstates.

Airelesanya was the name of my very first D&D character, an elf rogue that was very good at what she did. It's usually shortened to Aire or Anya :3

It's the name I use for most sites/etc as it is pretty unique.
