Every username's got a story behind it. This is a thread for explaining how you ended up with the handle you go by.
This came up in my intro thread, but I'll tell it again and expand on it to get the ball rolling. Back when I was about 11 or so, I wanted to give a character I was drawing a cool name that sounded vaguely fantasy-Japanese without specifically being Japanese, because I was a baby weeaboo. I had the general idea of how syllables fit together for the language, and a general idea that 'maru' was an archaic name-ending that also sounded pretty badass, so I cobbled together "Ansemaru" without any particular regard for what it even could mean.
It could have ended there, but a couple years later I found myself in need of a username for a Deviantart account, and really wanted something that didn't have any numbers or underscores in it so I could sound vaguely unique and respectable. Lo and behold, I had a cool-sounding but nonsense name all lined up! Ever since then, it's sort of been my go-to username on websites, due to the fact that it's never taken and sounds cool.
As a side-note, the character I named that? The character in my icon. Some things never change, I guess.
