The name Bwave is a title. I did not choose it. It was chosen for me. The elders saw something in me that no others did. I have a destiny...

1. Because SB is Strong Bad's initials

Thus, you have S.B ^_^.

Prototaph is the title of a very short story from a 60s collection of short science fiction stories. I think it's only a page or two long, but it's last line struck a chord in me:
"When I die, the world ends."
I liked it so much, almost everywhere I go, I use the name. And that's me.

Well, I was trying to think of a new Username that was tough and cool and cool and tuff, so I kept on thinking and then it struck me, Paranigma which means Paranormal Enigma :D

it took me a long 10 minutes of think, and then it hit me, im in high school(i dont know why i changed ti so skool) and i cansider myself an art major, so thus High Skool Artist was born, my username on youtube is ChronospaceTrode though i got that from my friend, i like chrono trigger and i was playing dragon quest VIII at the time, and my friend made Chrono Trode, and youtube doesnt allow spaces, so i made it ChronospaceTrode, and on Deviantart, its the same thing as here, just without the spaces, so its HighSkoolArtist there, and that concludes my username story, thank you and hope you can understand my bad grammer

I think the meaning of the name Princess of Strong Badia is pretty self-explanatory, but there IS a story behind it. When I was first getting into HR, I used to go to this HR fan site. I think it was a blog of some sort that had screen caps from the emails on it. I forgot why, but one day I emailed the web master of this fan site (probably just to tell him how awesome his site was) and I signed the email Princess of Strong Badia. I think it was still a couple months before I would join the Wiki, but when I did, I decided to use that name once again.

I was just sitting here, registering, and I didn't have anything.
I tried "IPlayIbanez," my Photobucket and guitarists.net name, but nah. So then I thought of "BobMan," already taken. So I was at a complete loss, when I was just thinking of random hip hop phrases... "Sup Dawg," "Hey G," but those all sucked (as well as the other attempts at names), and I wasn't really into that culture, not even jokes, I find the jokes made on it now to be repetitive and bland.
So then I just thought "Eh, I'll try that idea, but make it something kinda... not lame, also."
So then I thought of Word Up.

I came up with my username from the end of The House that Gave Sucky Treats because if you vote for The Cheat it comes up with something that says I Choose YOU Cheatachu. So yeah that kinda explains itself

You kind of did this already:

Like it says how did you come up with your username? I came up with mine because I wanted it to be somehow involving the Cheat and so an idea came to. Which was I Choose You Cheatachu. I thought it was pretty clever so I used it (obviously.) What about you guys?


Which is the true story, huh? :p

I don't want to explain my username, but I'd like to say that it is pronounced G-No (Gee-Know).

Were doing a project in school where we have to make a commercial for a fake item, my group's is a convenient handheld device that chucks people out of windows. "Hey you! Have you ever wanted to throw someone out of the window? well NOW YOU CAN!" so I (with potates's help) came up with 'The Defenestrator'

I was thinking of something involving a Homestar character that was catchy (if you would call it catchy). So I thought of Bubs, and then Monty Python's The Holy Grail, and then a thought of Lancelot, and that's about it.

I had just watched the 'concert' email and somehow got myself here, was able to use 'Sloshy' because it was untaken, the end.

I once used this name for one other thing on the Internet, and decided to use it here, too. I was kind of thinking of a name... "dumm dee dumm....doo dee dooo", those kinds of sounds you say when you're bored, or thinking or whatever. Yeah. My name originally was DumDeDum435, but I got older and wiser and realised that not EVERY screenname needed random numbers after it. Good thing I realised this before the ability to change usernames was removed.

On a related note, I seem to remember "acekirby13"...

Anyway, I find this name kinda stupid, now, actually. Nowadays, my screename is usually "Someone Else". It is in KoL and a couple other things. I just thought that calling myself "Someone Else" was kind of clever. I just made it up on the spot when I was making a KoL account, and use it in a couple other places on the Internet.

It's basically after my favorite/representational animal, the arctic fox.

Mine dates back to the original Wiki, when it used Tavi. I had originally used the name MoogleMaster (Final Fantasy stint, ugh) and that was too long to type. So, I found out that KuPo would link to my page automatically, and presto chango I became me.
The tildes were orignally there due to registration problems, but now they ADD CHARACTER.

And they can imply "kupo" being said flamboyantly! Lucky you! ^.^
