    Kunoichi, at least in the world of Naruto, means "female ninja", and being a ninja is my secret dream job. :slight_smile: I was trying to think of something somewhat creative, that had at least some thought behind it, and would not be linked to any user names I've chosen before.

    Chose mine as a combo of two awesome characters that I like, Joey Wheeler from YGO and Rainbow Dash from MLP. Also only thing I could think of at the time of joining. Terrible with coming up with cool names/titles

    I couldn't come up with something, so I decided to pick the last name of one of my favorite singers, Frank Zappa. It sounded cool, so I kept it. It's also short and easy to remember.

    "Rin" is my little cousin's mispronounciation of my international name (=the name I use with people not from my ethnic community who can't pronounce my real, official name).

    My sobriquet is a combination of "liberal" and "Latino", "libertarian" and "Latino", or perhaps the Spanish word for "libertine" :wink:

    My name is actually Miles, though I never intended to put that into my username.

    elysian is one of my favourite words (it means characteristics of heaven or paradise), but I always mis-spell it with an extra 's'

    Because the first word relates to what I am..tiny, and I chose bear bc I imagined a cute little teddy bear when I made this account.

    Shoei (or Shoei Loei) has been my nickname since childhood, given to me by my aunt & uncle lol. Don't ask me how they decided upon that nickname; I have no idea and neither do they haha. There are a few people I know today who still call me Shoe, Shoei, Shoei Loei, etc. So I just went with that. (Pronounced Shoo-ee Loo-ee) :shrug:

    My favourite band, Creeper, have a song on their first EP called Novena and it's my favourite song from the EP.

    It's a nickname I came up when I was in Boston and needed one for Pokemon Go. I was living in Chelsea, MA at the time (which is very very close to Boston) and I had looked up Chelsea's history. Turns out the Boston Strangler was from Chelsea, so as a stranger to Boston living in Chelsea, I choose BostonStranger.
