I needed a name that sounded queer and foreign
So I picked Sergei
Mandragóras is the Greek word from which we get "mandrake," a flowering plant with weird human-shaped roots which was used as a surgical anaesthetic in ancient times and is often associated with black magic and bizarre superstitions about deadly screaming people-plants. The members of the nightshade family and deliriant herbs in general fascinate me, and it sounded cool, so here we are.
The avatar, as noted in my introduction thread, is a Cate Wurtz thing. I found the expression and pose apropos to how I feel much of the time.
I didn't want my username that I use for other online activities to be added on this forum. As a result, my username ended up just being the initials for my name IRL since I couldn't think of anything else to use.
Take a wild guess where the name Cerb came from.
I'm not really sure how it came to me...
I guess I'm just good at making names?
I've used my initials elsewhere out of a failure to think of anything more appropriate at the time, so I know that feeling.
Nezumi is the Japanese word for "mouse" or "rat."
I got my fursonas name when I was designing him and i was making a 9 tailed Kitsune but messed up the tail placement when I was first designing him (this when I began doing Anthro art) and I ended up only having 8 on him because a 9th would look weird on him the way the tails were placed so when I was thinking of a name for him, his 8 tails reminded me of 8 spider legs and the rest is history, Spider. K was born. I'm now much much better at my art and he's had 2 major role designs but still has 8 tails.
I opened my steam "friends" list and chose the first name I saw. I know very original. It's still better than 123 though.
Years ago i started playing a game called 'Marapets' and there was a kind of pet I really wanted called a Rusty. Since I was young and stupid I got banned from this website a few times which meant that I had to make new accounts. I used to be called 'CarlyJen47' but when I was banned I made an account called 'BrownRustys' which was the color of the rustys I wanted. I got banned, again, because I was stupid and made a new account called 'RustyTwins' which was the name of the quests to get a rusty. Currently my user on that website is 'RustHeart' which is my typical name. Since I always had rust or rusty in my name people on the website would call me Rusty as a nickname and it just stuck. My full name is Rust Heart and my nickname is Rusty. The Rust Heart thing is just a referance to the old days when i was really into the warriors books.
I've been called Pipp in real life for at least 13 years now, and Pippi Longstocking has always been a fictional hero of mine, so that is my name.
I Just made mine up...
Mine came to me just this weekend! I'm a husky but wanted more colour and I think a shock of blue mane would look great. My human side likes red best, not so as Bluey Grifter! The 'surname' is because I'm into all things 1980s and love the Grifter bicycle. Plus it's a bit funny, a bit cheeky, a bit Yiffter haha! In all seriousness... I really struggled with the name!
My username comes from the wave form square wave, as I do a lot of electronic music. And I really, really like cats. Put them together and you get Square-Wave_Kittycat.
Destiny the video game to be specific. (Good god my addiction to that game is more like a Stockholm syndrome than anything)
I was sitting in Zoology, and our teacher was lecturing us on the usefulness of a tissue called keratin. She pronounced it as "keratine". To me, that sounded like a name. So eventually, when I made this account, I remembered keratine and it became my name. Except I spelled it with an extra "a" the pronunciation is still the same though! "K-air-ah-teen"
My name is a cross between Piccolo and my name.
I like gearless bicycles, so i named my Sona, Singlespeed (even though its actually Jay Weatherby).
Actually made this sona with my ex 9v9; Whom she is still mated to basically... but we named ourselves kind of based where we live. Maple because Canada, Tex for Texas, etc. c:
Separate names with a comma.
