Story behind your username!
« on: October 14, 2017, 04:23:28 PM »
I am pretty sure this kind of topic has existed, but it was a long time ago, so I made a new one yay! :lol:

Post here the stories behind your usernames! How did you come up with it? What inspired it? What does it mean?

I bet people think that behind my username is a 13 year-old die-hard G4 fan, who had no idea about the existence of other generations before coming here and has horrible spelling mistakes XD But actually I am a young adult and this name was created years ago when I joined this community and yes, at that time I was that little die hard fan, but I knew about older generations and G3 was still at the bottom of my heart, though I fangirled over G4 at that time. And soooo that's where this name came from and it's still here. I am actually considering changing it.

The meaning of my username is kind of obscure, so much so that I put it in my profile.  :lol:

It is/was (I don't know if it is still used, maybe in Europe, I don't know) a term used in 18th century and thereabouts for ensembles of woodwind and some brass instrument players.

Once I found the term, I was overjoyed, finally a perfect username for me to describe my love for all woodwind and brass instruments! Sadly, that definition of the term is very obscure, and people in general just think it's a spelling of "Harmony".

Leave a Whisper. I was reading a fanfic and came across the phrase: leave a whisper and nothing more. It means to come and go without a trace. I liked it so much that I chose to use it as my name, even though I'm about as stealthy and inconspicuous as a drunk rhino. Haha!

Actually, I thought that was your irl name.

When I was getting back in to ponies as an adult and found the Trading Post I couldn't decide on which pony to use as a username. I decided to pick Ponyfan since I am a fan of ponies. :)

My username technically comes from a completely awful nu-metal band; in the absence of ideas, I'd decided to call my ponysona 'Taproot' for a bit of a joke (in the midst of a cringe-worthy and very immature 'irony phase'...) and suffice to say now I am regretting it with a vengeance. XD
I have been pondering changing my username for quite some time, it's just a matter of deciding on something better.

Glitterball because I love disco, funk and generally anything glam & sparkly!
I also collect vintage (rhinestone) costume jewellery, so it all ties in together!  :cool:
When ever I visit a flea market / boot sale / charity store, it is always with a bee-line to the jewellery and toy sections  :P

Mine would be from when I was high school, my mom bought me a new pair of converse shoes. With loving Pokemon as much as I do I took Sharpie pens and drew pikachu's face on the tips. (In school I thought that was coolest thing)
My friend saw them and went "Haha its pikashoes!" I loved the name so much I've used to for almost everything.

Gaaah please don't change it, every time I see a post from you I get "Again & Again" stuck in my head (Taproot's only decent song). I love that song and it usually replaces the theme tune to Blaze and the Monster Machines or Teletubbies or *shudders* Peppa Pig. (The joys of being a stay at home Mum.)

For a while I went by my real name, then that changed to Pinkamena when my ex started stalking me again. He got over that though (thank you, new girlfriends) so last year (earlier this year? I can't remember) I changed it to Gingerbread as she is my favourite pony next to Bow Tie and Cotton Candy. And I have a large Twinkle Eye army. :D

OMG thats one of my favourite books, need to find out which rabbit it is (I only ever read it in german, so no idea which one it is :))



I love all your explanations <3 Its so cool to read that all!
Harmonie btw is also the german word for harmony <3 and its also the german word for what you described, thats cool :D


So, my own username... Einhornbaby is no official german word I think but you can translate it to "baby unicorn". I go by that name since 2001 +/-.

I've been BlackCurtains (with or without a space) online since 1997. Back then my favorite band was Megadeth and I played the album Youthanasia on repeat constantly.

One of the songs on it is Black Curtains.

Interestingly, in 2004 a french metal band formed and called themselves Black Curtains. I had claimed the name almost everywhere, but when social media started to get really big, we were in competition. They dissolved in 2011 and despite my attempts, they refuse to let go of the name.

I'm not a fan of Megadeth anymore (Dave went off the deep end yeeeeears ago), but I still listen to the old stuff - everything up to Risk, basically.

I have thought about changing... but this name is so established. I mean, there are people who call me BC in real life. So instead I just have an alter ego of sorts, and use that name on sites I don't want affiliated with "BlackCurtains"  ^^;

Mine's exceedingly unexciting - dates back to the days of the Pony Name Registry (anyone even old enough to recall it?) and my favourite pony was Sugarberry but that was already taken, so next best thing.  The rest, as they say, is history.
G1 Wishlist  It's the final countdown! Looking to purchase the last few G1's for my collection - Watercolor Baby Sea Ponies Foamy, Misty & Surfy - Red Roses - SHS Sweet Sundrop - Springy - Teeny Tiny Snookums (#2)
