    The origin of your screen name

    Post by Akubarix on Mon Feb 01, 2010 6:32 am

    Random topic is random. Most people use shows, pets, favorite (whatever here). Heck, most screen names are down right unoriginal. Is yours an exception? What's yours about? I'll kick mine off first.


    My name is often compared to AKUMA from street fighter. Or AKU from Samurai Jack. While I enjoy both series, neither actually have a thing to do with my SN other than sharing the first 3 letters of it.


    I created the SN about 6 years ago (hot damn) when someone dear to me paid the price for trying to help me out during a time of need. I felt terrible about what I had said and done, so think of Akubarix as a dark tribute, a reminder. A scar.

    Aku means "evil" in Japanese. (Akuma means demon in japanese, fun+useless fact)
    Bari in some language (I forget) means center or the heart of something.
    X is thrown in because Akubari sounds god damn lame.

    So... The name is Evil-Heart. Who would have guessed?

    Frankly, it's an odd thing for a screen name to have that much background, but I'm curious as to what the meaning/origin is for the rest of our users.

    Not as much background, Zenith is just a cool word.

    Also a lot of people say I'm egotistical...so yeah.

    Well.....my full official name (Ninjabugmaster), which I still use as my Shoddy screenname, originated when I started an account on SerebiiForums about.....5-ish years ago.

    I didn't want to use some of my older screennames from sites like Neopets (lawl), so I decided to change things up a bit. Ninjas were (and still are) awesome, and bug-type pokemon were (and still kind of are) my favorite pokemon type. I tagged on the 'master' because it needed an authoritative ending because I felt like it.

    I shortened my name to straight-up 'Ninja' a while ago....I believe it was on Aikou....but I still kept my Shoddy SN as well as my old SerebiiForum SN (which I use occasionally).

    OH LOL THAT'S ME.

    Name comes from the protagonist of Tsukihime, that's pretty much it.

    My screen name is unoriginal like Shiki's.

    Sasami is a character from the Tenchi series who I liked and it somehow became my nickname in middle school and stuck. It was eventually shortened to Sami but I still use the screen name Sasami on some forums.

    Is there an eye colour for apathy?

    Back in the Super Smash Bros. Melee days, I mained Fox. One of Fox's primary attacks is his reflector, affectionately dubbed "Shine" by many players.

    Bada-boom.

    Mine goes back to wow, about 7 years or so ago when I found Paganism/Wicca. There was a section about choosing a magical name. Something that symbolized your new self. So i chose my favorite herb; sage. which is for cleansing, protection and grounding. Its also doubled with The Sage, which is the aspect of the triple god in Wicca and is all seeing and wise(which I found out years after I chose the name ). The second part 'hawk' is one of my totems, I'm a silent watcher that observes more than anything, and from that I gain more knowledge than the average person who sits there and talks all day and doesnt shut up. The hawk is also a messenger; which after i chose this years later was told that I was born with a message to give. (whatever that means; totally cryptic huh?)
