    Why have you chosen your user name?
    What does it mean to you?


    I use the Name Night Haunter Because it has that dark feel about it.
    The name Night haunter is the master of Nightmares and the stuff I write is considerably dark I mostly write poetry and very Dark poetry at that.

    So there you have it My User name Is Night Haunter.

    They sound similar but aren't. The trees are called bonsai, the battle cry is banzai.

    I picked Domoviye out of a book. I needed a name for my first e-mail account, and looked through the book "Field Guide of the Little People". It was one of the few names I could actually spell, wasn't feminine, and not already in use.

    And after that I just kept using it. Its an uncommon name, so there's virtually no chance of anyone using it besides me.

    Alice in Wonderland. Take a Guess? xD

    I really loved the books and seem to have a fasination with anything Wonderlandy in nature. That's why I picked the name. I guess a lot of people fancy a world inside their mind... I like the feeling of having my own little world. ^^

    I use Onoria because it sounds funny. Sort of PG Woodhouse-y. Oh, and Banzai means "ten thousand years" - it's something like saying 'vive/viva'.

    I use the name Hulls Raven for two reasons.

    One. I earnt the name Raven from my fellow Army Colleges.

    Two Because I live in a town Called Kingston Upon Hull I simply added the Hulls For the Internet. Many people across the whole net know me famously as Hulls Raven.

    In real life my friends and colleges call me Raven. Its a name I earnt for good reasons.

    I used Crazy Ivan...cuz it sounded cool, really. Also, Ivan is a fun name. And Crazy shows that I am someone to rarely be taken seriously.

    It wasn't until about five months later that I found out that Crazy Ivan is the name of a commonly-used submarine maneuver. That was weird.

    Twili came from the fact that I started using the name twilight and then on alot of things that name would have already be taken so I shortend it to twili.
    Plus with as much junk as I do on the net and all the names I use I have to use stuff thats short and sweet.

    Gannon is a pretty cool surname to have.

    Anyway.

    Myst was the protagonist's name in the first story I ever wrote myself. I've adopted it as my literary persona since.

    It also stands for several things I like to associate myself with, e.g. mystical, mysterious. Lol!

    Yeah, and before you say anything, I know about the game.

    Well. You want a hint?

    I'm not a girl.

    Tough, I know, but I'm sure you can figure it out.

    I know I confuzzled many people about my gender, until I told them "Look at the second word in the username, bozo."
    Kind of a dead giveaway, a name like that.
