Welcome! Come one, come all to Behind the Name: the thread where you explain the story, challenges, and scandals in the creation of your username. The names on Elliquiy are diverse and unique, similar to the people on it. As such, they can have stories hidden within! Even the name, "Elliquiy," is unique. Perhaps that influences this?
My username, Fruitsteak, is what happens when you take, "fruitcake", mangle it around a bit, and shove a steak in it. I've used it on approximately one other web site, but intended on using it again because I liked it. There isn't much to it, so I'll try not to make it seem as mundane.
I looked at other words that sounded similar, and looked for other sounds in them. I thought it would be slightly funny to put fruitcake and steak together. I don't know why. It all happened so quickly! I was playing god, and the rush overtook me.
When I name things, I mainly just focus on the sound behind them. I take words and alter the phonemes until it sounds just right. Sometimes, it's undistinguishable from the original term, and sometimes, I only take one syllable from a word, or start with a sound that isn't actually a word. Generally, the base words don't have much meaning. Certain sounds appeal to me, so I take them.
Whenever somebody gave me a RC car for my birthday/Christmas, I took it apart to try and guess how it worked, then tried to put it back together. This made relatives angry. Even in something like this, I'm a tinkerer, and my name indirectly reflects that.
