So, tell me, my friends, what inspired you to choose the username that you did when signing up for this site?  I've seen some pretty interesting ones and am curious at what the story behind them are.

Personally, I couldn't really think of one that was suitable, and didn't really think I would be sticking around this site for as long as I did.  Decided to use Corgi, but the name was taken so I just threw in the numbers because I happen to like that particular sequence.  

Any ways, feel free to share!

When I first joined the site, Ford suggested I use my favorite animal (Lion). He said I should go with either Lion or Lioness, but I wasn't sure about those. I started looking into names with similar meanings and ran across "Leo" which reminded me of the reasons I like lions so much in the first place. I started thinking about the influences on my life in relation to that, and I remembered Leora. She was a friend of mine who died a few years ago and was a huge source of inspiration for me to make myself stronger (yes, I used to be much more of a pushover than I am now). So I decided to use her name because of how important she was to me.

Ah, sorry about your friend.

This is probably the sweetest and most insightful answer that will end up popping up here.  Sounds like you put a lot of thought into your username, which always makes for something awesome to be remembered.  

What makes you say you have pushover tendencies?  I mean, I get being super nice can go hand in hand but it doesn't always have to be the case.

I used to be a lot worse than I am now, but I've always been terrified of letting people down. I'd do pretty much anthing someone asked so long as it didn't go completely against my sense of morality. I had "friends" who would consistently ask me to buy them things or to give them money. Even when nobody asked, I'd still go out of my way to buy or make things for people so often that they came to expect it. There were a few who took advantage of this- one kid even asked me for money for lunch every day because he knew I couldn't say no. I hated the feeling it gave me to deny someone so much that I'd give it to him even though I was fully aware that he was manipulating me. I still hate saying no to people, but at least I'm somewhat capable of it now.

@Leora That was way, way, way too much thought to ever put into a user name for any site ever.

HHGTTG for Ford. Chanbot was named after a gaming friend from well before Chanbots' birth that went by the username ChanRocket. ChanRocket was some asian with the most broken english ever who lived in the boonies of canadia and always had a robotic voice over skype (the only alternative at the time was a very early version of mumble or vent). I didn't even know ChanRocket very well or anything he was basically just a player in a large group of players whom I didn't know very well but we all shared a community. So I named Chanbot after him cause I'm uncreative. The bot part of Chanbot is obvious - Discord at the time was still alpha and didn't have any bot API or bot tags so Chanbot was his own discord user and I wanted some way to let people know he was a bot.

That's interesting, and while it may not have been the most creative, at least there is a story behind it.

Mine is actually a typo and I didn't even notice it until I had enough work put into story games on this account to not just make a new one with the correct name. And apparently it's a typo I made so easily that I never caught it when logging in either.

It was supposed to be SimplySabley. Because I'm simply me! lol.

Typos are great! Lots of good ideas can come from them, especially in writing.  It seems to fit you though.

Well, for me it was more of a 'On the moment' decision based on my edgy hormonal mindset at the time. Something like "A cloud watches over others, but never influences them. I'm kind of like a depressed god.."

Yeah, something like that. Buuut it's generic nature has grown on me.

I love slasher movies. Chucky, Freddy, etc. That's my shit.

User of a Username: Inspiration

It may seem a typo, but it actually comes from the title of a short story by Borges (Argentinian writer). Thanks to that story I learnt that "undr" was the Old Norse word from which "wonder" derived.
Besides, it's just strange enough a word that I could choose it as a username without having to add stuff like numbers to distinguish myself from other users.

Indeed. I seem to recall this one that you ended up with was a second or third try...

Mine was just the name for a D&D character I had.

Valid reasoning. I recycle old roleplaying names constantly.

User of a Username: Inspiration

Yours was one of the usernames I was especially curious about

User of a Username: Inspiration

Did you choose your avatar to match the D&D character as well?

I took my username from a song named Wouldn't It Be Nice. I regret my descision because WouldntItBeNice is friggen long and just plain odd. Plus, the song brings up very bittersweet memories for me now. :(

With a do-over, I would've gone with WonderBread, Wunderbar, Baka, or something else odd like that. :)

I remember you mentioning that in the discord, I think it suits you fine though :)

Thanks. Still, there's a reason why no one calls me by my username though.

Copied by brother pretty much. Liked the name Steve as a pen name, pretty sure the numbers were either from something I don't recall or random.

User of a Username: Inspiration

Does your brother use Steve as a pen name as well?

Nah, he went with Chase for whatever reason. Too American for my own tastes, but whatever..

I chose this nickname because I like the numbers 3, 7, and 11 and I also like horror stories because I'm an edgelord.

It's not that hard to figure out.

I probably thought of zebras and then things got messed up somewhere along the way and...

Well, i just typed something random that looked like a name.

My user name is ThomasLaHomme because I want attention as a writer. My real name is Thomas La Homme. It's sad, I know, but there you have it... :( Also, on a similar note...I had actually considered posting in the Lounge a proposal that we actually post pictures of our real selves. I realize not everyone wants to take down their avatars. Me, I honestly can't remember even how I put up the thumbnail image I currently use...

I was really searching deep in the well for a username, however I just so happened to be eating an apple at the time and before I knew it my fingers had typed out a name.

Ninja- I was into parkour in middle school.

Pitka- It's awful, but my favorite comedy movie is The Love Guru. The main character is Guru Pitka.

Also, capital letters seemed too formal for a username.

Obviously, I wanted a username that could be initialized to "BD" and Dvorak is the most phonetically pred of the keyboard layouts.

Somewhere deep down, I strongly regret my life choices up to now to the point of self-hate so intense death seems like a preferable alternative to living with my mistakes.

It was either this or the classic xXxINoScopedJFKxXx. But then I thought about it and came to the conclusion that I would rather be sent to "furryhell" on occasion, then be a 10 year old for eternity.
