CrispyLettuce Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Haha, I'm actually (finally) going to be changing my name soon. The only reason I came up with CrispyLettuce was because I didn't want anything associated with a fandom/other peoples' IP and I didn't want any numbers. I guess I must have been thinking about food, because that was the first thing that popped into my head.

DaydreamDragon371 Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2013  Student General Artist
I was originally going to use just DaydreamDragon (since I daydream all the time and I chose a dragon as my mascot), but someone already took it. So, I jolted down 371 after it. I chose 37 since it's my favorite number, but I don't know where the 1 came from.

The-Fire-Magician Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2013  Student General Artist
I got mine because my first story was supposed to be about this kid who could manipulate fire.  I was originally going to go with "The Master of Fire" or "The Fire Master", but the site I was trying to sign up for already had those names so I went with mine.  I used Magician because of how I really loved the concept of magic, and I always wanted to be able to control fire.  After all fire can be a life saver when unaffected, but when it goes out of control it can lead to death and destruction.

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.

Tsuki-to-Hi Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Ours (for this account has two people working on it) is meaningful.
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.

Cooldude104 Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2012  Student General Artist
I chose Cooldude104 on a whim because I was a bit unoriginal and didn't know what else to call myself. As such my friends have since said that it is a fitting and meaningful name.

Odd how it works out like that.

Alicia-x-Itachi Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
My username is somewhat outdated, as I'm not a teenager crushing on cartoon characters anymore, and I now hate the show said character came from--though you can tell from my gallery and faves that I still like him as a character. It does sometimes kind of irk me when people see my username and icon and think that I actually like Naruto.

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.

My username was a bit rushed so I could get back at a deviant that was being ignorant and spouting shit and blocking everybody, but I thought of one of my friends in school that used a lot of words like "Awesomesauce"
So the name stuck and I always wanted to be a doctor or something like that, so ~DoctorAwesomesauce

RaineSageRocks Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2011
When I joined, I wanted to have a meaningful username. A lot of my OC's and FC's have those type of names, so why can't I?

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.

To build a persona that you couldn’t in real life, meshing real life with some fiction, something more fitting for the internet environment you are engaging in? There’s also the tried and true, avoiding stockers and identity thieves. :shrug:

My username is simply my childhood nickname with three random numbers pushed at the end of it (because Annamay for a username on Deviantart was already taken). A lot of people think I called myself Annamay because I draw anime. I don't know when I ever drew anime but I like it. :D

mashovvasho Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2010
I like the words "mash" and "masho" for some reason, so originally I stuck "washo" on the end cos it rhymed. Then I moved to a new account and replaced the W with VV.
I use variants of "mashoXXX" on other sites.

And what exactly is an "un-meaningful" username?

:icondragonlordkris:
DragonLordKris Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
"Un-meaningful" is arbitrary but straight forward; the name has no meaning if its only purpose is to fulfill the need for a name for the account. For example a username of “123456789” is a meaningless name but “4815162342” is not if the user was a LOST fan. A different combination of numbers could be used and have meaning if for example the user is writing a mystery novel and that combination of number is a reoccurring pattern in the book.

You can't really say you have a meaningful username yourself, Mr. Dragon-Load-Chris. I find your argument quite hypocritical.

Dragon – I would like to be stronger, impressive and influential. I would also have an interest in fantasy, probably of the creatures. I could or desire to be a concept artist, designing various beast and creatures. Dragon could also suggest by birth year, the year of the Dragon.


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.

Well, it seems as if your stamp addresses a petty cause at best.

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.

Petty is pretty subjective; I’m not running a campaign for office on enforcing “good usernames”, this stamp was not made to enforce “good usernames”, it was made to support, to encourage the creation and use of “good usernames”. Stamps are intended and created to state an opinion. This stamp states my opinion on usernames. After all a “good username” is subjective.

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 :icondragonlordkris: 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?
