    Default The meaning behind your username

    Our name in Urban dictionary sort of inspired me to make this thread.

    Basically, why did you name yourself what you are now? Naturally, user names change and feel free to walk us through your entire username history if you want, but why are you named who you are on EoFF?

    For me, Formalhaut was chosen for many reasons:


    1. I simply like the sound of it. Also, Whenever anyone finds out about my username of choice, their normally like "Wha, what's that" which is always amusing
    2. It is the ultimate gun in FFXII. As Balthier is often seen with a gun, I made it his own personal weapon during my play through
    3. It is also the name of a star in the sky, which is a slight hark back to my childhood where I was space-crazy for abit. I still am, but less so and I've grounded myself to focus on forensics.


    And that's basically it. So why are you named what you are? I'm really wanting to know what the hell Aulayna means.

    I was young when I thought of the name when naming a character in an RPG. It kind of stuck and I ended up using it online!

    I originally went by CrazyInsaneManiac on a chat back in 2004 and eventually people just started calling me CIM cause they didn't want to type it all out. I ended up falling in love with it so I adopted it as my only name and then people started calling me Cimanim and CimminyCricket. My life has been so confusing.

    No offense, but I think my username is pretty self-explanatory.

    It's the name of one of my first WoW characters. Honestly it didn't come from anywhere really I just wanted a name like Aurelia which was taken and eventually I ended up making Aulayna because it sounded pretty and more Night Elfy.

    It was basically me slamming my face into a keyboard trying to think of a name for this forum... it has quickly turned into a name I use whenever it is available.
    Eyyyyyyyyyyyyy

    The meaning is that I don't have to worry about it being taken whenever I register somewhere.

    Raistlin is my favorite character from the DragonLance book series, which were some of my favorite books growing up. I was in the middle of reading them when I first registered at another message board when I was 11, and it just stuck after that.

    Too bad the wiki's pooped out, there's a whole list of EoFFer's usernames there.

    I used to be Guardian XIII. Guardian is one of my favorite words because I like what it represents. I also really liked the idea of Guardians from FFX, and Guardians of the Flame was my favorite book series at the time of making this account. Seemed like a no-brainer. 13 is my favorite number, I suppose I like the negative implications behind it. Since I was joining an FF site, roman numerals it was!

    A few people shorted it to G13 or G, and after a while I felt like G13 represented me better. I still think of my name as Guardian XIII, just shortened. Like how Loony RoberT became Loony BoB.
