This is something I made for my LP channel icon, since it uses a different name.

I plagiarized my avatar from CM Punk's Straight Edge Society wrestling stable. I did this because I'm an anti-drug advocate myself (the hardest thing I've ever done is caffeine, and I haven't had caffeine or soda in over two and a half years now).

I got the name from the Pokegod of the same name. My profile pic was drawn by a friend of mine (since I can't draw to save my life).

So, I found this thread when going through old posts, so I thought I'd revive it to explain my current Username+Avatar+Signature.

A few months ago, I had a boyfriend across the internet. It wasn't really the proudest thing I had ever done (particularly being a long distance internet relationship), but I enjoyed the time with him I had. We both shared a passion for Asia in general, as well as a disdain for the common obsession with Japanese culture. At one point, we were both really focused on Chinese, and I came up with the name 紅狼 ("Hóng Láng", meaning "Red Wolf") for myself, since Canis Rufus is the species of my fursona (yes, I'm a furry). I talked with my boyfriend about having a common Chinese surname, so one day we picked out 查 (Zhā) together, after a bit of talking. I'm a little ashamed of the reasoning he picked this particular surname now that I look back on it:

"I chose Zha since it's a homophone for 'suddenly' and the implication is we're men of action."

Because he completely didn't take into account what the actual meaning of the word was ¬_¬. It's not really that bad, it just means "check" or "investigate", which the word is used for much more often than a surname apparently. Guess that's the price we pay for not using a more common surname.

Even though we're no longer in a relationship, I kept the Chinese name because he means a lot to me. However I also decided to update other websites which didn't use that name yet, using the pinyin for the characters since it's easier for most people to type. But my avatar uses the characters proper, since I felt like they needed to be displayed at least somewhere.

Backstory!

So let me get this straight: the literal meaning of your chosen surname is check or investigate, but you forgot to check what it was before using it?
I think the irony in there is reason enough to keep it

Tails_155 made mine for me.
He took the Ganon sprite from ALttP and added a top hat and monacle.
It's one of my favourite avatars I use. :mrgreen:

Name's from a character in a game I'm working on.

Avatar is from the excellent Super Mario Adventures comic. Definitely one of the best non-game adaptations of the Mario series in my opinion.

I just thought the way of saying amazing as Ameijin was funny. I go by Mayo almost everywhere, it's the one username that's just stuck and I'll probably keep it that way.

As for the icon, it's the face of Kamille Bidan, the MC of Zeta Gundam. There's this cool artist name Setzeri and I've been a fan his artwork and his current comic for quite sometime now. So when I got the chance to commission him a drawing of both Kamille and Quattro, I was ecstatic with how it looked. The signature I have is just a adjustment to my Youtube banner saying "AmeijinMayo" instead of "InfinityMayo". :D

Name was made for an enemy I made for a game many years ago that looked vaguely like a mix of Deoxys and Chaos 0, so I combined the names into "Chaoxys", and ended up using that as my general online name.

As for my avatar, I decided to make a Demo sheet for my Mario project, SMB & The Midas Machine. It's not going to be in the actual game, I just thought it'd be fun.

Momiji Inubashiri from the Touhou series. She's one of my many favorite characters from it, and I couldn't think of a better handle to use here. She's also super cute and wolf girls are entirely too uncommon.

Cletus isn't my name, but one day everyone just started calling me Cletus, now I am Kleetus.

My avatar is a still from the Super Mario World episode Born to Ride that I found on Mario wiki, it made me laugh.
I had to do some cropping and resizing to make the image small enough to be used as an avatar.

Changed my name from En Gardevoir, which is a sword pun on Gardevoir from Pokémon; into Gardenolva, which is a name mash between Gardevoir and Nolva Carpenter (the girl in my avatar) from Sdorica, a mobile game.

Well, I got my username from when I was called "Jared M.F." on the children's coding website Scratch (my username there was "meowflash"), and knowing that the "M" stood for my middle name "Michael", I figured that the "F" stood for "Funtime". And the "Its" part's origin is rather unknown, but overall, my username is a pun on the phrase "It's time".

As for my real name, my mother was thinking about naming me "Brandon James", but then she decided to name me "Jared Michael" instead due to a classified reason.

I don't have an avatar yet, so I don't seem to have any origin for that.

My signature was written by me, though it states I have a Discord account and a Soundcloud account. Don't believe me? Click the spoiler on my signature!
Hey, this is Jared Funtime! I hope to improve this signature sooner or later.

My username was based on the robot master, Search Man from Mega Man 8. My avatar is Balrog from Cave Story, and I just like him so I use him. My signature, well... it showed up one day and won't leave me alone.

My avatar is Viola Cadaverini from Ace Attorney. I really like her.
