Why did you choose your Username?

Something, that's really interesting me  :dandelion

Why did you choose your username?

So let's start:

Why am I calling myself Darkling Nocturnal?  :darkling

I wanted a WSD-related name. And because I like bats and bat-related stories (like Silverwing and (of course) Batman :D ), Darkling was my name. And because I wanted to use this alias also on my web-projects, I needed a lastname. And Nocturnal fits to Darkling.

And Darkling Nocturnal simply sounds good in my ears.

I haven't put much thought into my username but I wanted it to be different from my other online handles. Mallow is WSD related, simple, and unique to the forum.

I wanted to be known as "Silverweed", but that name was already taken, so I tried to come up with something else. I didn't quite remember what I was reading at the time, on another tab, but it had something to do with "claws"... and I really liked how that sounded. It was a match made in heaven :D

My name came from a book, as described in my signature, but I chose it because the character 1. was menacing and tough, 2. was a great fighter, 3. had a cool name (very important), 4. hares are at least mentioned in the WD book and are very militaristic, similarly to an owsla, and 5. he had a Scottish accent.

He is one of my favorite characters from those books.

I've missed this place.
Check out my Deviant Art page. But only if you feel like it.

Well, it's simple.
Foxbrow is a name of one of my RP characters that just poped in my mind one day.

And it is complicated.
Foxbrow is actually a shortcut of two words. And surprisingly, using the expanded Loganberry's Lapine dictionary, I can even make the full name in rabbit language.
I would put it like:
Hombahyt Hayuhlthlay

Anyone curious and eager to do some investigation what these words mean in English, here is the link to the dictionary (if you don't happen to have it your favorites already)

That means; you saw the movie in the cinema in 1978 !. Watership Down.
I'm envious.  :hawkbit2

--------------------

At first I had the name  "Conejo"(Rabbit) I did not think anything original.

But now switch to Acacia Hearstrings. That's my OC character based on me like a wild rabbit.

Acacia is the name of a plant or tree desert.
Hearstrings for pony My little pony G4 called : Lyra Hearstrings.
I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

Hawkbit is Hawkbit.  Enough said. :hawkbit2

But if you want to know more....his dry humor amused me when watching the series.

I chose my name simply because I always take an interest in minor characters that contribute very little to the plot in movies as much as I do to main characters (for no reason at all that I can determine).

I could name many series where that happens (especially in the case of Alpha & Omega and its sequels), but that's my reason for going with the name Clover as my username here.

Well, I've been down lately, so I find my name a great source of inspiration. Taking the perspective of looking on the bright side helps me ^^
Thank you to Chipster-roo for the avatar!

I chose this name first at the Redwall forum because of there being hardly any rabbits in the book series. So kind of making up for the fact with my chosen name! Copying that username to here seemed somewhat fitting! Meadow... rabbit... It works. :D
Here lies a signature that has little point.
