    How did you come up with your username? I went with my favorite pony and year of birth. I probably would've done something a little more creative, but I was feeling lazy when I came up with it.

    It is my favorite kind of pop. I was 16 at the time, so cut me some slack. I was considering Four-Eyes before I joined Toonzone.

    Basically it came up in about a minute, and I was thinking about something that could fit with my ambitions at the time (as an animator and the like). I was 14 back in December 2012.

    Its a reference to a gag from Gaming Garbage where Shmorky intentionally screwed John Madden's name several different ways. "Joe Mabbon" was the first and most ridiculous name he came up with and it still makes laugh thinking back on it.

    Last year I decided to make a last.fm account, but I had no idea what name to use, so I just went with the captcha I got, which was "freav".
    I liked the name and decided to use it whenever I wanted to make an account for different sites, like this one.
    Also, I'm pretty sure that all of my "freav" accounts have this same goat avatar, for some reason.

    It comes from the letter "J" you know just spelled out Jay, and the other 3 letters are the first letters of my last name, and 97 of course is my birth year, it has really been a big factor for me as I like this username and it is not a common username out there as well.

    I was a Young Justice fan back in 2012.
    I might change my user name to a random Dutch or Swedish word in the future. Who knows.

    @szjdfgs: I insist you to participate in this thread. I had to use a mnemonic to memorize your name :confused:

    Okay, but it's not that exciting.

    I created a YouTube account in 2008, I didn't have any creativity so I smacked the keyboard and see what mess came out. And back then you couldn't change your username on YouTube. Now it's grown on me and I don't feel like changing it.

    There was an extended period during high school where I would call, walk-in the room, etc. and distract people from whatever they were doing. Usually unintentionally and I thought it was rather fitting so I have stuck with it or some variation for years as my online handle.

    I came up with the username Gatordragon because of two things. Number one is that alligators are my favorite animal. Number two is when I was a kid, I read stories about how when Spanish settlers came to Florida and saw alligators for the first time, they mistook the large reptiles for some kind of water dragons. I thought it was such a cool story that I thought it would make a great username.

    I wanted to use Lucario as part of my username since it was, and still is, my favorite Pokemon. I thought of Dark Lucario at first to sound more tough, but I didn't think that fit with me. I went with Light instead since I thought it worked better with Lucario and it sounded happier. This was around the time when Death Note was really popular, so I thought that people would assume that I was a fan of the series with that username, but I don't recall that happening before.

    It's a name I use a lot on social media. One time I was making my Mii have Sparkly eyes, then BAM!
    @kanc needs to post in this thread.

    Well, Baker came from my last name "Brubaker", and I draw cartoons.

    Pretty simple :p
