Pretty sure I've done this before... but oh well. Here we go again. Well... my original username was HOTL6107 which was an acronym that I made up for a boyfriend of (his one true love) and the numbers being the date we started dating. Well... that ship sailed quickly (well... 5 years quickly) and when we broke up I needed a change. I couldn't think of anything so I used the nickname for my pen name (Cassie) and just thought of an animal it could go with to make it cute; thus CassieBear.

If I could ever change it again, I probably would. This username almost seems childish at times.

Svengali and Trilby are characters in the 19th century morality story that's similar to the Faust Legend. Trilby is a young singer and Svengali takes over her career, her life, her personality, everything. She becomes a great star but she loses individuality, her sense of self, and the one great love of her life.
 
Decades ago, my husband the techie geek brought home a PC and started showing me all the interesting sites.  I told him he was trying to Svengali me into the cyber-verse.  He agreed.
 
Hence, Trilby.

NecroMantid
prefix: necro-
relating to a corpse or death.

Suffix: Mantid
another term for mantis

man·tis
ˈman(t)əs/Submit
noun
a slender predatory insect related to the cockroach. It waits motionless for prey with its large spiky forelegs folded like hands in prayer.

In short and in the language of edgelordieness:
Dead inside on multiple levels, I consider myself a god  but also a trashy insect that waits for their ascetic prayers to cement into existence.

When I was younger, I used Azrael a bit, (because teenager, so the archangel of death was so cool back then), but not long after, I came to a forum that already had the name. I didn't want to have numbers in my name, and was hard pressed to think of a whole new unique name, (I forget if I tried a few others or not).

In the end, I decided to just put original in front, and I've never needed to change it since.

I chose my username because..Gypsy is what I use on other sites in the past, of course that username was taken. So I added woman to the end * shrugs* seem to fit.

The reason I choose Gypsy as a username is because I have always had a fascination with Gypsies, even as a child. Probably because we told that if were not good children we been given to the next Gypsies that came by. Now you think that scare a child. Of being the terrible kid I was, thought it be a great adventure to off the gypsies, learn their magic and see different places. Of course I didn't know their reputation at the time. Now I know about them and they way that are and even with that knowledge I still hold on to the romantic notions that I had as a child.

Because endorphins inhibit pain signals and produce a feeling of euphoria. And, well, I just like to bring about more happiness.

Despite popular opinion, I did not name myself after the poet. I know he exists, of course, but I had forgotten about him for a while.

No, I chose William because it's a pseudonym I'm familiar with, and I decided I needed a last name to go with it. I wanted something strong, that fit the name, and flowed easily off the tongue. Blake popped into mind, seemed right, and I went with it. Only to be reminded later of the poet (and movie protagonist).

A play on words, a name I created for a character, ages ago. Turns out it may actually be a name, too. Who'd have known? Not I.

I'd say that I chose my character name (Rennryn Oviar) Because it just sounds like the man is full of hurt and pain. He's a high-elf mage, he is a betrayer of those that betrayed him. Throughout my life, I've been betrayed many times, stabbed in the back, turned on, and spat on for probable causes. Because of that, I decided to make this character a revenge character, who turns into a mage and becomes the highest ranking elf, then turns on all of the elves that have become lax and betrayed him when he was young. So, with further ado I introduce- Rennryn Oviar- Betrayer of Elves!

Started roleplaying at sites like Locked in lace and had to come up with something appropraite for my character. Originally it was Jennifer Cocktease, but there was a bit too much follow through on my part, so I changed it.  XD Picked the Jennifer name because I always thought it sounded cute, but could pull of sexy easily.

Because I wanted something relatively open, short, and descriptive.  Ideally something that lets you know what you're gonna get right on the tin!

took it from lyrics of a Creature Feature song (Buried Alive) a few years back, liked the way it sounded and it aligns with my... tastes *grins*
