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?

Captain_JEK
JEK are the capital letters of my three real names put together. That's why I always write JEK capitalized.
I also love steampunk and wanted to be an airship captain. So, I put a "Captain" in front of "JEK".
I thought it was a nice play on words because it sounds like Captain Jack (Sparrow) from Pirates of the Caribbean but actually represents my real name without anybody knowing.

MildlyPanda
My original name was 'PandaBoy423.'
My favourite animal, who I was, and the classic random numbers. This was 5 years ago btw.
Over time I wanted an alternate account. Being a creative child, I went with the second name 'PandaBoy425'
This soon took over my main account...

The more I grew up, the more I disliked the numbers, so I cut them. However 'PandaBoy' still didn't sound right so after a bit of brainstorming, we got 'PandaGuy' which not long after changed to 'GuyPanda'.

'GuyPanda' stuck with me for 3 years, until finally, I was going to change my name permanently. I still love pandas, so that had to stay, until I looked back... 'PandaBoy'? "So... half boy, half panda... a boy whose mildly panda?" Perfection. Never changed from MildlyPanda, never plan on.

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.

Fawne
I don't use my current PMC name for pretty much anything other than PMC. I don't really remember why I chose it.

My old PMC user, Sunstroke, is what I use for most of my online stuff. 'Sun' comes from my actual name, while 'stroke' comes from brush strokes because, y'know, I liked painting. It can also have another meaning though. My old internet persona had bat-like features (& my old PMC class was even vampire.) It's kind of ironic that a vampire would be named Sunstroke, but I liked the odd way it worked.

Sir Craftypants is actually a Character for my Son, we're soon to be starting up our YouTube channel.

I call him Stinkypants when he silently lets one rip, i'm always beside him when he does.

I play Java myself but when I play on PS4 Minecraft with him, he's constantly sneaking into my chests and stealing my stuff, crafty little bugger but he's only 6 so that's where the name comes from.

So I am a German and in an English lesson at school sometime in the 6th or 5th grade I had such a topic. And in this topic came at some point the word 'Like it' on it. And then I made 'Like it' Liiked. And sorry if I'm not so direct. We Germans do not have to be so direct with that. I write it with Google Translate xd i'm very lazy

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.

luxluxdev
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 :)

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
