What's in a name (or screen name)? - ookami - 09-19-2007

What does your screen name mean? Where'd it come from?

My name, 'ookami', came to me around 7th grade. At the time I was obsessed with wolves. At the same time I was just getting into the Japanese culture. So I combined both passions and voila! Wolf is 'ookami' in Japanese and I've been with the name since.

oh my.....i came in at a weird time...................

but any way

my screen name is tsubame/avalonstar12

tsubame is because i was reading airgear and i saw simca's nickname, and i wasll "AWESOME!!!!!!!!!" and i like swallows.

avalonstar12 is cause i was and still am obsessed with cardcaptors and sakura's last name was avalon. then my mom told me what it meant and i got all happy. the star part is cause i like stars and 12 is my favorite #

Let's see I go by two *hold up two fingers*

Manta5544 ==> I got this back of Junior High I think when I was obsessed with Shaman King. Everyone liked Yoh or Anna(e) or Faust; Don't get me wrong though, I love those characters too, but the one character I really loved was Manta. So, I wanted my user to be Manta, but where ever I went the username was taken so I got 5 and 4 which was like 5 and then one number down, but then I wanted it to be like, longer and more nifty-er. (<--not sure if that's a word, but now it is Thumbup) so I put 5544.

KobayashiSama ==> I was looking up Japanese names for some reason and came across Kobayashi which was a last name of a powerful family or like wealthy family or something in history, but the name Kobayashi just stuck to me and I liked it. Well, every place/forum I went to the name Kobayashi was taken so I just added Sama at the end for obvious reasons. o_o I like to be TOP!

*mumbles to self* Did I just declare war on Ichi?
