But i'm just gonna say, lets not start another dumpster fire in this thread. It was a simple question that recieved a legitimate answer and we should have left it at that.
Nicknames can be incredibly hard to make, or they can just go "Boop", and there you have it. Keep at it, mate.I have a question, do you enjoy attacking people and shoving your nose into other people's business? Like is it a new furry fetish I'm unaware of?

You should check out foreign languages if you haven't already.
I'd recommend you check out Old Norse. Who knows, you may find something you like.
Indeed. A lot of sites/whatever only allow English-specific letters.If you're wondering, I cant really use words from my native language because most username services do not allow "special characters" (no accent characters or non-latin characters) and removing those doesn't really work.
I guess I don't understand the obstacle. For me, the idea of the name is the hard part because it's what would ideally be spiritually true, and that takes some self-knowledge. Mechanistically manipulating words into some suitable name is just an exercise in language, and so, no deep thought needed.I don't really understand what you are saying.
Yes obviously it has to be something that is personal.
I have a few themes in mind.
But I don't know the method of actually developing something that is good. Because you cant just shove words and phrases together and make it be decent,
I like a simple, easy to pronounce name. These also tend to be easier for people to remember. It took me ages to stumble upon Simo, but when I did, it just felt right.
It's a highly personal thing, and I make no judgement on names, though I will say when I see names that have tons of consonants and hardly a vowel in sight and that one has no idea how to pronounce, I tend to remember these less. This seemed like something of a trend, for a bit, or so I was convinced! : P
I agree with you for that. I think memorable usernames are important for an artist, otherwise nobody will know how to get to your page...
I need a new username, I don't like my current one, and on DA I have to spell it with an L so people don't tag me correctly.
I thought of one username but it was taken. So now I am back with no ideas.
How do you come up with a decent username?
(by decent i mean no numbers, no multiple words unless they fit nicely, no replacing letters with numbers or other letters.)
I don't have a lot of good ideas for methodology. Generally, if you're not brainstorming anything, then you could let an algorithm do that, and see if anything it spits back out feels right.But I don't know the method of actually developing something that is good.

Please don't advise people to do things that create more work for us. It's rude and unnecessary. I promise, we're not sitting here twiddling our thumbs with nothing to do.Extra bonus points if it's something rather uncouth and you can get it by mods/language filters.
Just throw something descriptive in front of a noun and call it good. Bonus points if it reflects your personality. Extra bonus points if it's something rather uncouth and you can get it by mods/language filters.
Inkblooded, please expand on what you might consider for a username, so people can have a better idea of what you're looking for. Maybe explain where "inkblooded" came from? Anything that can help people better help you. I think there was also a "where did your username come from?" thread somewhere on the forums that might help give you an idea of how people come up with unique online handles.
