My present username is usually 'GoodClover', came from my Build-A-Bear teddy, who is green and has a clover on 'im. (also have a tiny one called Little Ted, I was very original).
It was my username because of BearVille, later Minecraft and then just got used everywhere.
(hmm, Wikipedia mentions BearVille just once. I mean the original, not the crap mobile app that ""succeded"" it. was like Club Penguin etc, but I never played those)

It's attached to loads of junk from when I was younger and an idiot online, and generally it's a not a particularly intereting/unique name, am trying to think of a new one.
'olive' is waaay to simple for me to ever hope claiming it on non-small places, and searching for it would be a nightmare. Usually register GoodClover and nick to olive, if they haven't made the genious decision to unify them.

Anyways, I'm curious as to how others ended up with/thought of their present usernames and previous ones…

when i was younger, i quickly realized using my real name was not a smart move at all, so i started looking for a good username. I knew it needed to be original enough so i could use it everywhere without it being already used by someone else, and short enough so people could remember it.
I thought about it for days without coming up with anything good until i named my new pet on fantasy life.
i had called it hèrédos, just because it sounded good for a big bird, but the firs letter was the same as my real name and it matched the criteria i wanted. so i started using it on scratch, then youtube, google, discord, gravatar, etc.
my profile pic has a more interesting meaning though.
it's an orange cat with a laurel crown and/or a red and blue cape
the actual one was drawn by my sister and she added tons of little references on it like to explain. so:
the orange is because it's my favourite color,
the cat because my family always had cats,
the laurel crown or the toga/cape because my name is the one of a roman emperor
the same goes for the position of the cat, doing a roman salute
and the night background has two meanings: the first is a continuation of my old profile pic where my cat was in space, and the second is a little signature from my sister as her name means light, so i am the one with the dark.

I could go on forever about the seemingly endless number of usernames I've had. I just settled for Compa out of consistency more than anything else.

I remember picking the username LMD on the Minetest Forums: My brother KGM had simply used his initials, but I don't have a middle name and the minimum name length requirement was three letters so I used my initials (LM) and appended D for Dev-something (Developer? Developing?). LMD has since been mockingly deemed an acronym of the chinese name "Li Min Ding" in relationship to coups and quacks. My current preferred interpretation is "Let Me Develop!"

Update: "L Minetest Developer" has been suggested as another possible interpretation of the acronym.

On the Minetest "CitySim" server I went by the playername "alts_go_brrr". I guess you can imagine how that came into being.

My current nickname "luatic" refers to the programming language "Lua" (portuguese for "moon", don't dare spelling it "LUA", it's not an acronym) which I'm madly in love with and is a play on the word "lunatic" (luna -> moon -> lua).

Oh, and then there are my
usernames, but we don't talk about that.

i always went by the name Danil on the internet. although first it was DanilGamer135, and then it became Danil_2461.
however, i also went by as holypigeon17 for some time, and my first ever discord nickname being something like "linkoln" (it came from a social app i used at the time called memasik), then i quickly changed to danilgamer, and stuck to it. i also went as Cookie3803 on roblox and Sans(insert here a obnoxious amount of numbers) on scratch (back from when i was in my undertale era in 2018)

Darn, wish I had something interesting to say about this but nope.

This is just a crappy username I came up with on the spot so that people from other places and communities could not be able to find me.
