Turkey=My favouritr animal.
Tail=I actually like tails.
Cryptic-a name after my fc and my unknownness
Jam- The name of my dead cat, main OC, and another way of saying blood
bunnies- I love bunnies, and one of my old OCs were a bunneh.
meaning, I guess.
Seeing some usernames... You can almost tell they are underage.
Tsuki means moon
to means and
Hi means sun.
So Tsuki-to-Hi means Moon-and-Sun. It goes for both of us since we are the opposite of each other in many ways, just like the sun and moon are opposites.
Odd how it works out like that.
Still, I think it's a meaningful name. It's unique and easily identifiable, with no annoying random numbers to be found, and I'm happy with having it.
So the name stuck and I always wanted to be a doctor or something like that, so ~DoctorAwesomesauce
I decided on 'RaineSageRocks' because she (Raine Sage) was the character (from Tales of Symphonia) that I liked the most. She was so knowledgeable and amazing that I just couldn't help but be honored to have her name included in my username. It just... felt right, I guess.
why the hell I would use different name in my Internet "life"?
That said, I agree
I use variants of "mashoXXX" on other sites.
And what exactly is an "un-meaningful" username?
DragonMan – I am a fan of or have fawned childhood memories of the Megaman franchise. I could have an interest in robots and AI. As an artist I may have mechanical designs or stories with characters that are machines.
George – Possible my real name or a name I really like. If it is not my name it is likely the name of a charter of my creation. A character that I have invested in, likely from the first story I’ve dabbled in writing. I could also have an interest in history, particularly British History. Depending on supporting evidence I may be a professional or student of history.
Besides, studies show that hackers and con-artists are less likely to attack people with usernames that confess less about the actual person. If a username has many numbers and arbitrary X's, that person is doing an unbeknown solid to themselves in avoiding the destructive types.
So we should live in fear of the criminal element then? A study is unnecessary for that; do you steal the mystery box where you get anything from used sneakers to a million dollars or do you steal the box that you know has something valuable to you? The internet is not a wild west were law enforcement is far and few between. The Criminal element run a risk whiter it takes the mystery box or the box with something desired. We expose ourselves to countless risks with everything we do; a username that has meaning to the user is not high on any list of risky things to do.
Meaningful doesn’t necessarily mean actionable information. Could you find in a city of millions? In a room of hundreds? An elevator of a half-dozen? Likely not and finding me would be out wade by the effort and resource necessary to do so. No one successful or seeking success would use a username like “PenisLicker59” especially if they were using an online alias to launch their success like many artists are here on dA. We judge real people on so little information; our judgments are even more solidified when presented with less. Professional artists are even forgoing “meaningful usernames” altogether and use their real names. Would you do business, work or associate yourself with someone known as “PenisLicker59”? You would not.
Meaningful usernames present important information about the user but not necessarily the information you’re thinking. When there are so many things out of our control when it comes to the world’s perception about us, why throw away something you can control?
