    I feel your pain... As I say in the initial post, my ORIGINAL account was actually called "AlyssaKat". So, I had to start from scratch when I decided that my sona should be a red fox...

    Some would probably get the impression that "Shane McNair" is my name irl, but it actually isn't. Not even close....

    That's a nice name. Very appropriate and has a nice ring, too.

    SwampGoat Gris-Gris on you

    I'm from the swamp, and goats are awesome. Pretty simple, sort of boring. Also, there is a stoner/doom metal song called Swamp Goat.

    I love Slipknot and I love mountain lions. Apparently, my totem is a mountain lion.

    Here I started out as Mr. Fox, people seemed to like it, so I stuck with it. Wonder what will happen if I came back as Daffy Duck.

    Xaroin the Contradictory

    On FA when I made my account I was originally going to choose my MERP character name, but it was taken.
    I then sat there trying to come up with something and I went down to the verify your account code and thought how it looked cool. So I swapped out two letters in it and that's how "Xaroin" came to be.

    :3 I love that song but, I think Left Behind or Surfacing is my favorites. I like all of their music really.

  16. WolfNightV4X1

    WolfNightV4X1 King of Kawaii; That Token Femboy

    My username predates my existance in and knowledge of the furry fandom.

    It's a very furry-esque name, but before furries I was very...well...furry.

    Wolves have always been a fascination and love in my life. Before that when I was very young it was dogs. Dogs. Dogs. Dogs. I loved canids of all kinds when I was a kid, I was obsessed. How do you choose a favorite type of dog when each and every breed is wonderful and amazing? In the end, you go for the original canid, the canid where our modern domestic dog branched off from to become the love of our life, the original and largest canid to exist: the wolf.

    I loved wolves as a kid, always have. All my usernames when I was growing up on the net involved "Wolf_____" of some sort. It started with "Wolfpup", but as I grew older sounded really childish so I tried out other ones like Wolfang or Wolfheart. (I was Lupa the She wolf or Shewolf at some point, too) I finally settled on my extant deviantart username account, WolfNight.


    Night, in the end, has a little meaning to it. To me night is calming, relaxing, alluring. Night and darkness is soothing unlike the harshness of daylight. Some of my best memories were at night; going on family trips at a festival at night, sitting out alone by a pond at night listening to music, in my loneliness pining for romantic affection, sitting on the roof of my house upset about the loss of an object of mine and the trouble I got with someone I cared about, looking up at the stars. Night is a beautiful thing.


    Well, that's that. I also always padded my usernames with extra characters to keep it unique to me (A number of wolfnight's probably exist) I used to do the old skool edgy xxwolffangxx or something like that. Now its just a random string of four characters I can easily remember because their specific to me V (my first initial) 4(favorite number), X (A tribute to my old usernamely ways), 1(number one is a good number)


    I went by a few other usernames, namely triplehybrid (a tribute to wolf-avian-human hybrid, since I was a fan of the maximum ride seried and fictional hybrids), and nowadays I go by Vallium (A silly extension and fictional make of my name)
     
  17. ChapterAquila92

    ChapterAquila92 Resident Bronze Dragon Kasrkin

    I've been using the handle since joining DeviantART barely a decade ago, when I was heavily into Warhammer 40k. 'Chapter' came from the monastic organizations of the Adeptus Astartes (Space Marines), and 'Aquila' came from the double-headed Imperial Eagle. 92 denotes the last two digits of my birth year.

    It happened to coincide that my abbreviated handle, CA92, also denotes my Canadian nationality.

    Bear in mind though that it is not the name of my fursona. I use my real name for that.
