Some of mine …

@phinds It sounds friendly and reminds me glockenspiels.

@Choppy Makes me think of the water near the coast where I live.

@wolram Not sure if that was the intent, but I notice that it reads marlow backwards, which is one of my favorite names. Also, wolram just sounds nice the way it is.

@OmCheeto I really like the way it sounds

You mean your fish dies every month and you get a new one?

I like profuselyquarky as its very original.
Heehee, but that can't be your favorite :smile:

No, I've got eight fish and I just change their names frequently. Is that odd?

Just give them names from the periodic table. You can adjust them to personalities too. The aggressive fish is called oxygen. The fish who is really relaxed and doesn't care about anything is Helium. And the biggest, scariest fish is called vanadium.

One of my nieces was studying the psychology of usernames and how they reflected the owners personality. As an example, someone might use Zeroboy to reflect that they have low self esteem.

The study included analyzing the things they posted so you could get a truer sense of their personality.

I've done that before, actually. Biggest fish to smallest fish, respectively, I've named them:

1) Uranium-238, Uranium-235, Osmium, Xenon, Moly (short for Molybdenum), Fluorine, Boron, and Hydrogen
2) Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Epsilon, Zeta, Eta, and Rho.
3) Thing 0, Thing 1, Thing 2, Thing 3, Thing 4, Thing 5, Thing 6, and Thing 7
4) Mustard Seed, Allspice, Cinnamon, Cayenne, Salt, Pepper, MSG, and Beluga Whale.

Those are the most recent :biggrin:

I wonder what that says about you ... or me ... or everyone else :wideeyed:

Or, rather, Graham, googolplexian, googolplex, googol, million, hundred, one.

I quite like that! Thanks :) But I guess I'm the only one who has favorite PF usernames. I find names to be important, but perhaps that's just me.

My name probably reflects that I think dogs are better than people.

Must cost you a bit to keep changing their birth certificates to reflect the new name. ;)

Or dogs are a kind of fruit in a reverse sense.

Evo. While I'm still afraid of this member, I gotta say the username rocks. Three letters and it still manages to sound cool. :cool: It's super effective.

I didn't think about mine. I only joined to ask a question about SR, then hung around, got saddled with Homework Helper badge and wish I could change it now to something interesting and memorable like @Bandersnatch.

My name is a mashup of Star Wars and Martial Arts via Tai Chi Chien (sword), two of my favorite pastimes.

I like the name PeroK :) Maybe it has something to with your avatar, but it makes me think of brisk, wet weather. And I love brisk, wet weather.

I get the "jedi" part. How does "shrfu" come to play?

Au contraire! I'd say funny and entertaining. Esp. when it comes to debates about vaccination, evolution, gun laws, climate change, ... There's an australian page on FB where's regularly an article on those issues. It's more than entertaining :-p (I booked it because it promised to contain science news ...) Normally one wouldn't bother but there are really people out there who try to missionate their weird opinions.

I'm guessing you're not American, then :woot:

Maybe not so much boring but we are getting painfully predictable. :nb)
