This identity is a result of experimention with ways to say "Lain" that didn't trip pre-existing screen names. It took a while, but Rayinne was the result. I was surprised no one had used this one, and I've used it ever since, occasionally adding Deanova (New Goddess) or Blackrock (translation of Iwakura) for a last name whenever needed.

I also hold other names in a couple places, but those are irrelevant and will eventually be assimilated.

Um...I used Alyxe because she's the main character in a book I'm writing...originally it was spelt the normal "Alex", but then one of my friend spelt it "Alyx", and I stuck the 'e' on the end.

Sounds quite boring, actually.... ops:

Gatac is a really old name. Like, really, really, really old. It stems from a concept for Command & Conquer fanfiction, visualized shortly after the game came out but never written.

So, the phrase GATAC hails from '96 or so.

Then, in '98, Half-Life came out, and mods began to spring up. One of them was Wasteland Half-Life, whose forums I joined pretty much straight away. That is also where I first used "Gatac" as nickname, to the best of my memory.

Six years. Still can't believe it.

Gatac

I used to be "The Annoyance". And then I was "The Sugar-high Annoyance", and some random person on a Yahoo!club ((god, that was a long time ago, wasn't it?)) called me "Sugar-chan". Which stuck for about a year, maybe two.

Then I read some crossover fanfic. I don't really remember much of it, except that there might have been Card Captor Sakura in it. Because there was Li Syaoran; in that fic he had a relative named Li Xiang. I stole that and used it as my penname. For the longest time I was Sugar-chan Li Xiang.

I have this thing for making really long, pointless names.

Well, eventually I noticed that there was a girl on YTV by the name of Sugar. She was also the voice actress for Chibimoon.

I freaked out and dropped the name faster than you can say... well, anything. A letter. Possibly Q.

So I wondered what I could use to replace Sugar-chan. Because I didn't want to be just Li Xiang; it wasn't long enough. ((Yes, that's the real reason))

Then there was... hmmm, I don't quite remember. I think it had something to do with Bob and George, but I'm not sure... anyways, I picked the name Priest out of a hat, completely at random and went "ouuuu, this'll look nice".

It's stuck ever since-- and I have something like thirty-four variations of it.

Well, actually, there is a story to it, I just didn't remember until now.


Xeroc was suppossed to be the leader of an ancient species of aliens called the Xenophons (It means foreign-sounds if you're looking at the roots, and were so named because their language was unlike anything before known) who ruled 3/4 of the entire universe around 8 billion years ago. They then disappeared mysteriously into thin space, never to be seen again. Naturally, the other species still in existence, after being oppressed for so long, destroyed all records of the Xenophons, leaving them only as myth...


This story is part of some books or a series that I'm planning to write.
Eventually.

There you havit.

Tarn-Vedra is the name of the planet at the center of the Systems Commonwealth, the Vedran homeworld, which was cut off from the Slipstream after the Fall. (This is all from Andromeda).

I just thought it was a neat sounding name, and it reflects my Andromeda fanaticism, which, although lessening, is still very,very high.

Although, now that I think about it, I wish I had picked just plain Vedra as my name, since everyone calls me that anyway. Is there any way to change that,Zeke?

Don't change it! Everyone calls me Ginga (or should. :P) and I usually don't change it... XD

I can do that, but think it over a bit before you decide. Ginga has a point, and besides, who's going to recognize "Vedra" on its own?

Like an alternate transliteration of the Japanese word, you mean? It amazes me how many different transliterations of a single word can be correct. "Videl" and "Beederu" from DBZ are not just the same character, but the same name written differently.

MarilLena is a formation of two names:

Marill: name of the cute water mouse in Pokémon, ah ha.. go on, make fun of me :lol:
Lena: the name of one of my main castmembers, I really do like that name.

In the end I do prefer just Marill though, as I've had it for over four years

Mme=Madame

Madame Blueberry = VeggieTales character

Me = VeggieTales fan

Thus, MmeBlueberry. Or some variation of it.

I´m from Mar del Plata, a city by the Atlantic here in Argentina. People from Mar del Plata are called "marplatenses". People who surf the web are called "internautas"...so I mixed both and came out with marplanauta. I use it everywhere

It's a computer-animated children's video series, with Christian themes. Here's the company's website.

And there was me thinking it had something to do with Martian geological terms. But now I stand corrected.

Every time I go into the Christian book store, they have a VeggieTales video playing in the back for the kids.

Actually, I've never heard of it either. It's obviously not a well-known thing in the UK.

My friend tells me there was a VeggieTales episode chok-full of TNG references. I've been trying to track it down. XP
