What inspired you to choose your name on PMC? Did the name just sound cool to you, or did you get it from somewhere? In my case, I took my name from a game I play with a few other people, sort of like an in-person medieval fantasy roleplay. What about you?

I was 12 and wanted to seem mature and mysterious when going on websites, 20 years later and still using it for everything, and still hoping I sound mature and mysterious... I never change...

AppleDusk
AppleDusk comes from a book series about cats called Warriors which I've been reading for many years now. AppleDusk is one of my favorite names in the book but not my favorite character.

Zodus
It sort of sounds like my real name...

sort of.

I just put a Z where there should have been an E and an X, cuz it looked cool...

It’s from the name that I almost had, which is from the bible, so yeah.

Zodus.

Created the account for the sole purpose of making a robot for a skin competition. Then it turned into something else.

Toby Minceraft
My Minecraft in-game name...but there's more to it.
I get asked quite a lot about it, and people say "You know, TobyMinecraft is available, still". Well yes, they are right, but I like mine.

"Toby" comes from a music artist I like named "tobyMac".
"Minceraft"...well, some should hopefully know. Minecraft's title screen has a <0.01% chance to switch the "c" and "e", thus Mince-raft...but of course, i have a resourcepack that always has it set to that.

luxmiyu
Because of League of Legends and me as a developer. Long time ago (in LoL) i was called Nub Lux, i ended up changing my name to something i regretted, but since name-changing cost in-game currency (and it was definitely not cheap), i didn't wanna go back to Nub Lux, as that would feel like a complete waste of my effort - so I chose Lux Lux, that is my current IGN in league.

I like lowercase letters and I'm a dev, so i settled with luxluxdev being everywhere. I joined this site no longer than 2 months ago, and I chose luxluxdev as my PMC username :)

Long running handle for various gaming activities [Who first concatenated the two (and whether it was explicit or implied) is lost in the mists of pre-interwebby play. The degree to which the construction was intended to be complimentary was also somewhat ambiguous, but I've treated it as such.]

craftykids
I chose "craftykids" because that's what my Minecraft username was. :-P The reason I have that as my Minecraft username is that when my mom created the account, she expected it to be used by my siblings as well, and since this was in 2011 I couldn't change the name.

I guess I was going for something cool, so I thought up something, with the name of a character, Nightmare (Though her real name is Nova) from a book series called "Renegades" , and then added "Error" to it, but I didn't add an extra E, because I liked it better. :3

JediJerboa
It's actually based off my Minecraft username, NinjaGerbils. I wanted something that would fit me a bit better though. Since I like Star Wars and jerboas are closely related to gerbils, I got the name JediJerboa. I also chose this because I like alliteration.

NinjaLaiskiainen
Ninja is ninja, and laiskiainen is a sloth in Finnish. I've always been huge fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and for some reason I thought a ninja sloth would be funny. It's even slower and less ninja-like animal than turtles. Also I am lazy, so sloth kind of fits for me.

TheSilentWind
To be a breeze that whispers a message to you. To touch you with my words, messages, and other creations, even if I don't know you personally. I'd like to pass on something special to whoever and wherever because that's what the wind does. The wind picks things up and drops them off, such as leaves, seeds or raindrops that aids with the life on our planet, then after that, it disappears away. The wind is also temporary, so you don't need to remember who I am, just what I've brought to you. I believe that we all make an impact on others in one way or another, even if we aren't personally remembered anymore. That is the butterfly effect. Moreover, silent because I wish to not be aggressive, but just a gentle current that helps you out in one way or another; I hope to bring the opposite of a tornado, as a tornado causes destruction. That is, in summary, the symbolic meaning.

Furthermore, here is the personal meaning. I reminisce about the days where I played Minecraft Beta with the silent wind entering my room and enhancing that experience. It is, often times, those days that keep me motivated.

TomConn
My original PMC name was actually: Thomas999 – That name appears as me just putting some numbers on the back of my name, but it actually came because I thought that Germans shouting "NEIN!" was funny, and I thought it was the number 9. That's why I made my name: Thomas999 (Thomas NEIN NEIN NEIN!)

TomConn (My current name) is actually just a combo of my first name (Thomas) and last name (Connor) Thomas + Connor = TomConn : D

Kirigiri
My first pmc name was Princess_Sophie_300 because my username was megabug300 so I took the 300 from that, then being the cringy child I was and princess Sophie was my Rp persona so yeah, also since technically my first account was just my brother's alt I gave it back to him when I couldn't change my skin because of the legacy account/migraty and I bought my own account Tsgumi xD. but then I discovered ANIME and Kyoko Kirigiri from Danganronpa was such a badass I took her name and then a few years later I shortened it to Kirigiri because it sounded cooler.

-Rae-
My username was inspired by a you tuber I used to watch a while back, Ryguyrocky. He has a role play series in which almost all of the characters have names like Tina the Tiger, or Danny the Duck. I really liked the series at the time and wanted to have a username in a similar sort of format, so I chose Spot the Cheetah. I don't watch the series anymore, but I do still like my username and have shaped a character from my name completely independent of Ryan's series, which I'm proud of.

Bowmanimmortal
When I was 'round pre-teen age, I though that having a creeper as my favorite mob would be completely ORIGINAL, so I named myself King_Hiss_Boom in Minecraft. Play-on words for "King of Creepers." MC never got changed. Later, I started downloadin' fiddly lil' skins on PMC, so my dern lil' self thought, "I should make an account, pumpkin!" (Enough with the southwestern accent.) I named it bowmanimmortal, because my last name is Bowman, and I wanted to seem powerful. Later, I became a grammar nazi, (I still is) and went back to capatilize the B in Bowmanimmortal. Y'know what that means? I don't. What does it mean?
