What are the origins of your usernames?

I know some use just their own name, others use magical stuff, etc. Mine is just the name of a Mayhem song (* nods to any fellow metalheads here *) being a musician it was one of the first black metal songs i learned on guitar a year or so back.

Whats the origin of yours?

Wulf. Norse word for Wolf. As if that wasn’t obvious lol. I like dogs for their extreme loyalty and capability of love

Rey is Spanish for “king”, used here in the same way as king-size. Cuervo is a crow. So, a king-sized crow would be a raven. But of course, there are 388382321218 Ravens in any forum on the internet and I wanted the name for myself.

I’m Mina because well, I thought I could change it later if I wanted. Maybe I need a higher trust level for that I dunno… It’s not my biggest concern right now. Life would be pretty fuckin’ simple (no growth) over here if that was my biggest concern hahaha.

I did make it into an acronym though. I wasn’t speaking kindly of myself a few years ago, so I decided to change it up to be…
Mindful
Inspriational
Nice
Active

I realize I haven’t always lived up to these words but hey we all have our off days. Thanks for everything. I appreciate this forum a great deal.

Thank you.

Little trivia: in lunfardo, the slang that makes the poetry of tango, mina (a word that comes from minusa) means simply “female”, nowadays.

Interesting, I didn’t know that either. Thank you!

In Japanese Mina means all. Which corolates with the Law of One as well as ★ Om Namah Shivaya ★ Consciousness refers to itself as I. You sounding like ewe means a female sheep. It’s another way of saying the second you believe you’re you, they gotcha hook line & sinker. It makes more sense when you’re on mushrooms.

It’s gettin late and I’m rambling.
See you all next time.

Thank you.

Shortened version of my name + coming to terms with the fact that while I’m made up of so many contradictions, it’s finally time to accept all of 'em and work on balancing the paradoxes both within me and my surroundings. :slight_smile:

It just so happens to be one of my favorite words, and it reoccurs in some variation or another in most of the usernames on the platforms that I utilize.

Whenever i make a username on any platform i sit in silence and let the sound and feeling of names flow through my thoughts. Was somehow feeling the name blueberry that day. at the time i was not practising magic a lot, I was in the middle of a depressive phase, and I was ready to bite into something new, so it seemed appropriate.

I also wanted it to be very different from all my other usernames so nobody could make any links :wink:

Mine is Russian for mermaid which I stole from my favorite foreign film, Rusalka. In the movie she possesses powers to manifest her desires.

However I had no clue at the time when I chose the name about this:


I’m overly abundant in the water element so makes more sense now my choosing of the name. I wish I could find more info on the subject, but haven’t stumbled upon anything else useful.
