Not much thought. I wanted a short name easy to spell and remember. I like norse mythology and Stargate, Thor is a character in both of them so I chose Thor. I'm happy with it. And I never choose a name twice in the internet. Different sites, different names.

Quite a lot, but it's been over a year since I came up with it (and used it on another site). I was - and still am - obsessed with the number 5...

It took me about a tenth of a second. I usually use some kind of weather-related name on forums.

Far more than I thought I did.

The line comes from a novel I...hate to like; Gully is everything I'd hate to be.

I used to respond, 'My name is Daniel.'

When I'm talking to myself, I revert to third person, so, 'Daniel is my name.'

Daniel is my name.

Spokane is my favorite city of all because that was where Benny & Joon was filmed. But that won't be my forever obsession, I will move onto something else eventually. Would that mean I would have to re register? Nah, this username would become it was from one of my old obsessions and I'm female.

Not much, I have been a fan of gadgets and gismos for most of my life to be honest. So I reckon this name suits me...

I wanted to something extremely easy and somehow connected to my name. Since I love video games, including KH, I just picked Sora. My own name start with 'S' too. That wasn't too hard actually.

I have another nickname my friends frequently use, but it sounds ridiculous in English.

Mine wasn't too hard, I just joined two random words that popped into my head when I registered.

No special meanings there. :D

I am quite obsessed with all of the amazing abandoned insane asylums in NYC.
Here's one on Blackwell's Island (now Roosevelt Island):

^Bravo I <3 abandoned buildings. I'm obsessed with taking pics of them even in places where we're not aloud to tresspass.

Mine means misunderstood, if I haven't posted that already.

I put a little bit of thought into mine but kinda annoyed that I can't change it. I think it is pretty straight and to the point. Still I would love to change it :lol:

I spent more time thinking about what I didn't want to use as my username. After a few minutes I decided to just go with my name. First name Mike, middle initial B, last initial W.
