Re: Why did you choose your Profile Name?

Kunoichi, at least in the world of Naruto, means "female ninja", and being a ninja is my secret dream job. I was trying to think of something somewhat creative, that had at least some thought behind it, and would not be linked to any user names I've chosen before.

Re: Why did you choose your Profile Name?

Chose mine as a combo of two awesome characters that I like, Joey Wheeler from YGO and Rainbow Dash from MLP. Also only thing I could think of at the time of joining. Terrible with coming up with cool names/titles

Re: Why did you choose your Profile Name?

I couldn't come up with something, so I decided to pick the last name of one of my favorite singers, Frank Zappa. It sounded cool, so I kept it. It's also short and easy to remember.

Re: Why did you choose your Profile Name?

"Rin" is my little cousin's mispronounciation of my international name (=the name I use with people not from my ethnic community who can't pronounce my real, official name).

Re: Why did you choose your Profile Name?

My sobriquet is a combination of "liberal" and "Latino", "libertarian" and "Latino", or perhaps the Spanish word for "libertine"

My name is actually Miles, though I never intended to put that into my username.

elysian is one of my favourite words (it means characteristics of heaven or paradise), but I always mis-spell it with an extra 's'

Re: Why did you choose your Profile Name?

Shoei (or Shoei Loei) has been my nickname since childhood, given to me by my aunt & uncle lol. Don't ask me how they decided upon that nickname; I have no idea and neither do they haha. There are a few people I know today who still call me Shoe, Shoei, Shoei Loei, etc. So I just went with that. (Pronounced Shoo-ee Loo-ee)

Re: Why did you choose your Profile Name?

It's a nickname I came up when I was in Boston and needed one for Pokemon Go. I was living in Chelsea, MA at the time (which is very very close to Boston) and I had looked up Chelsea's history. Turns out the Boston Strangler was from Chelsea, so as a stranger to Boston living in Chelsea, I choose BostonStranger.

Re: Why did you choose your Profile Name?

Both its a reference to one of my favorite game series that's obsessed with the word and it's Japanese for the word "Hope"
