    Well, it comes from Lockhart (Tifa Lockhart) and I dunno, I was like 15 and thought it would be cool to make it Lockharted.

    I've had variations, my PSN is Lockhearted - it kinda suits me I think, I like the connotations of a 'locked up heart' and stuff and I always feel a bit... Tifa-ey when I use it. I've never had it shortened before like I have on here - I love Locky, and I may possibly change it.... maybe! I think it's quite different and unusual whilst being memorable. I like it.

    Sheetle Bug (Twintania)

    *checks watch* This time of the year already? This thread is always fun. :3

    I have went by three names across the internet: yuna_elena, Shauna and Sheetlebug. There was also a brief stint as StalkerHorse.

    yuna_elena was back in my "I must name myself after my favourite characters!" phase - Yuna from FFX and Elena from Grandia 2. Moved on quickly from that.

    Shauna, believe it or not, is my actual name. Little imagination to it, but whatev. It's uncommon enough that I was often the only Shauna registering for things.

    StalkerHorse was entirely an injoke between myself and another friend involving spellcheck and deviantArt. It didn't last long in my internet usage, but again, it was uncommon so registering under it was useful. Xbox and Steam are probably the only places that it is still in any sort of use.

    And finally Sheetlebug. My friends and I were trying to come up with nicknames for each other for an IRC channel we have - apparently, according to some hit on Google somewhere, Sheetlebug is in fact a nickname for Shauna. We thought that was hilarious and I adopted it. It's pretty cool, so I'll probably stick with this ~forever~.

    I was originally called Bubbaforever. I was named after a legendary "wonderful" chocobo from FFVII called Bubba. He liked his female chocobos black like his coffee. His super-sperm gave me my first ever gold chocobo.

    During my spell as EOFF Royalty, I briefly changed my name to Ramisese RuBubba the Third which irritated the hell out of everyone so I reverted to simply Bubba.

    My screen name "Agent Proto" is actually a combination of two different screen names I used. The Proto derived from Protocool which shows just how cool Protoman was. I was a big megaman fan back then. The Agent was from AgentBS which was some character in a story I was writing. Fun times.

    It's from the classical children's tale about the dragonslayer named Shoeberto Ramirez. Everyone read the books in elementary school so I don't feel like it really needs any more explanation than that.

    Clograb is what you get when you smush my first, middle and last name together (minus the Polish), and eventually it became Clo.

    NOW I AM THE CLO.

    I was playing through Suikoden II when I registered here and "Thanatos" which I used on FFL was taken!

    Someone I used to work with called me "dabrowskitron" once and it just stuck, that's the story on that.
