I chose this name because it perfectly describes how I always am.
I seem to either over think or double guess all the time. I like to ponder and doodle in my mind. It's really the ultimate sketch pad for writing or drawing ideas so I'm constantly in a perpetual state of thought... It gets so bad sometimes that I get lost in it...
Hence the name
~Lost in Thought~

Pretty easy to answer in my case, as I came here to pick up some roleplaying with a few friends of mine, so I chose the name of a favorite character of mine from the old site we used to hang out at. This way at least one of the characters I intend to write, if I get approved, will have her name right next to the IG posts.

About four years ago I bought a tri-plex building on cash I received from a car crash I was in. The appraiser told me it was a pretty sound building, so did the second, and third, so I paid cash for it. A ton of events happened, and long story short I fell into a depression, never ending up finishing renovations. To cheer me up, my friends would slide Japanese candy under my door. Sometimes I would wake up and notice it had been eaten.
One night in particular, I heard a noise and sat up to see what it was. A little mouse scampered away. Having a mouse in the house wasn't uncommon, having found out that the house was relatively infested with them, but this one was very tiny and missing an entire ear. I crawled out of bed and picked up the rest of my candy, leaving two or three by the door. The next night, I put more candy by the door and waited. The mouse came in, took a couple bites, and scampered off. I did this for a few days, until the mouse had become comfortable with my presence (and likewise) to the point where he would eat out of my hand. I named him Fidgit, because he always shook so much and hated sitting still.
A couple of months later of our friendship, a roommate of mine told me he had killed a mouse. He was so proud of himself, having been "tormented" by a mouse for a couple months and finally killing it. I cried. Cried, sobbed, totally confused my roommate level of tears. I shut myself back in my room and stayed under the cover all night.

Then, at around midnight, I felt little paws on my palm and opened my eyes to see Fidgit, gnawing on a package of my roommates crackers. I used my index finger and rubbed the space on top of his head and cried so quietly I thought my chest would explode. For the next few months until I moved out, Fidgit and I would have midnight snacks and sometimes, he'd bring me some of my roommates crackers. He was swift, avoiding months of traps, shoes, chemicals, and outright fists from my roommate. So my online handle became "Fidgitswift" in memoriam.

When I was younger and played on gia I made a doll like avi and I needed a name for her. So abandoneddolly was born. It fits because I do like dolls, I have a bit of collection myself. It also sounds kind of dark and sad which sort of suits me.

Just to be consistent.  I'm known by this name else where.  I don't see the point in reinventing myself again, or hiding from what i am elsewhere.

I've answered here before. Mine was my tabletop Star Wars character from a game years ago. She was a Mistryl shadow guard force adept. :) Her weapon of choice was zenji needles, which she often wore as hair pins. They're capable of punching straight through a stormtrooper's armour. It worked out perfectly.

Um.... cause it's been my online gamer tag since I played the original Everquest.  Or well back then, I had a character with the surname of Sleepingferret.  But ever since, it just sort of stuck.

Computer problems. I tried to sign in as "WildKat" but for some reason that didn't work properly. But then the computer called the name 'taken' so I switched it to "WildCat" and signed in successfully. I would ask to get it changed but... having both a WildCat and a KatKwik around, as well as all the other 'cat' names is confusing enough.

I was waiting for the first Prototype so long and chose it as my gaming tag, kind of stuck with me. Besides my life has been so shit that I feel like I'm a half finished project.

It's my nickname, but with another 'M' at the end. So instead of Mike it's Mikem. I sound more adorable that way.

I've taken on the pen name Cassandra Ellovy for a while now, so it's the nickname Cassie and lack of ingenuity left me waning to make it cute so I added on Bear.  -shrugs- Take it for what it is...

Michael dropped down to 7th most popular name, from it's previous spot at 2nd. So I guess our dream of ruling the world fell through.

It's the name I've used online -when I didn't want to give my real name out- ever since I was 15! So it could be said it's my online persona!

I was once on a Once Upon A Time fandom based role-play site and we were allowed to play "OCs" which just meant Disney/other characters that weren't in the show yet. A few of us took to playing Rise of the Guardians/Guardians of Childhood characters. My go to was Emily Jane, or Mother Nature, Pitch Black's daughter. So she quickly became my all time favorite character to play. She doesn't have too much development in the books yet, so I kind of got to make her my own. I played her on Tumblr and Twitter and still do, and a few other sites. There was this one ship between Emily Jane and the Greek God of War, Ares, that stemmed off on that fandom site - I have no idea - there was chemistry and it just happened. I liked to call it Natural Disaster, and that's just how I got my username. :)

My grandmother was Italian and even though she died when I was young, I grew up looking a lot like her. This name reminds me of her because I hope she's looking down hoping I have a "Beautiful Life", which is what BellaVita means in Italian :)
