Some of our usernames are self explanatory, others not so much. Don't think I've seen this type of thread here before so here goes:


Wild Wing is the name of the mascot of the Anaheim Ducks, my favourite sports team, and 64 is derived from the Nintendo 64. "wildwing64" was the first thing I came up with when I joined the official Mighty Ducks boards back in 2003 and it's stuck with me ever since.

I could've sworn we had this thread . . . Possibly a while back.

I like pie, pi, and py.

7 ate 9 but then 6 ate 7.

I simply used one of the techniques from one of my favorite Digimon (AncientGarurumon).

I named myself after a character of mine named Millennium, who was normally reffered to be his title "The Chaos Entity"

It just sounded cool to me years ago. And actually is my second name. I don't think any site still has the first name. But this is much better.
Fun Fact: it was because of one of the old Digimon EZBoards and it's closing that I have this name.

Kaid derives from the anime kikaider, and 115 came from when I was like 9 and tried to use Kaid as a username on Runescape and it was already taken, So I recieved the numbering 115 afterwards because it was the easiest to remember.

Ah, the origin of crapcarp. I just love telling this short tale, mostly 'cause it's hiliarious.

Anyways, when I was signing up on Newgrounds(the very first site I made an account on), I made my password "crapcrap" because I was really into Strong Bad Emails at the time. But then I realized that I misspelled it "crapcarp" when I tried logging in and couldn't. I have been using crapcarp as my internet alias ever since.

So if you see crapcarp or crapcarp555 somewhere else on the 'net, it's probably me.

'DigiTamer' is.... erm.... pretty straightforward I should think haha... and 'Rikun' is the name of one of my characters (though oddly not my primary Digimon character).

Although, it actually wasn't my first choice of name; I wanted to use my default name on most websites of 'Banryu', though due to registration troubles this one is the one that got used. x___X I don't know if it's even possible to change it but I don't know if I should even if I can, people probably wouldn't recognize me haha. (I had the same problem on AllisBrawl when I changed my name to Banryu and instantly no one knows me anymore ~__~ lawl.)

Banryu was the name of some electronic guard dog robot that was made in Japan, which I later named one of my drawings (an armored dragon who was actually a Digimon to begin with! haha), and then myself afterward. It more or less means 'Guardian Dragon' (right?) and out of all my internet aliases, it's my favorite and the one I most identify with. I also go by Blademaster Banryu because I like swords and it has kind of a catchy ring to it... at least to me. =w=

My username came from an idea I had years ago: what if a champion level or higher digimon armor-digivolved?
I also thought of a KingArthurGreymon, but Aztec Garurumon had a more complete story so i went with it.

That's a nice idea! *thumbs up*

My name came from the novel "Watership Down" from Richard Adams =) It's the name of my favourite character Bigwig in rabbit language (lapine) and it means "fur head" *lol* I used this name in many communities for (animal) cartoons or on my own Watership Down Page ^^ I realy love this name and the language (Richard Adams invented it by himself) =D

Mine was supposed to simply be "Megidramon" named after my favourite Digimon, but in our Dub they called him "Megidoramon" so that's what I went with. Only later I realized that it was a bad romanification. =P

Mine comes from my common online alias, so if you see Yoshi of Earth some where else on the net it's me. Also where it came from was the first forum I ever joined Yoshi Art Forums. Yoshi of Earth was the name of my Yoshi fan character, and to put it simply he was the only Yoshi on Earth. Seems silly to me now, but I kept the name, and his back story changed a bit.

This is embarrassing as all heck to talk about but my username came from some really old Disney Channel program block that sounded cool so I ended up adopting it.

My grandmas's computer used to have problems a while back quite frequently. They were basic problems which I dealt with on my computer a lot. I knew how to fix them but she wouldn't let me because I wasn't a "professional" with computers. Every time after when she asked me to do something I just said that I wasn't the pro (for fun lol) so I wasn't qualified to do it.

So basically I changed my Xbox LIVE name to Im Not The Pro and it kind of stuck throughout the internet for me. On all websites and forums though it will be ImNotThePro without spaces because most sites don't allow. So if you see my username anywhere, it's more than likely me.

Well Osaka from Azumanga Diaoh was my favorite character at the time. And this being a Digimon site, I stuck mon at the end of it.
