Follow TV Tropes
Because I apparently come off as "moody and sarcastic with attitude" according to some people.
Plus it made for a cool username.
When I was a kid, I had an obsession with princesses and the name Gwen (which isn't my real name) was chosen at random.
Well, I was listening to some Amon Amarth, and I thought, "Ya know what? The guy who's destined to destroy the universe is a pretty good alias."
Skypunk was taken on the site I wanted to use it on originally, so I got creative! It just stuck after that.
It was from a superhero-esque code name one of my characters would use, that idea didn't stick though.
"Revaryk" was a username my dad came up with to use for Minecraft when I first got it. Not a fan of talking about my real name on the net, but "Revaryk" is actually a combination of the first three letters of the word "Reverse" and a backwards version of my real name, "Kyra".
Well, it's simple. I'm a human who's hapless. Also, it's my username on Tumblr.
It started when I was thinking of a random username. Here's my train of thought:
My real name->birds (my real name's often associated with 'em)->jam->dancing guy in a suit wielding a baton (a meister)->jam+meister->Jamiester

Lyciboo is what my parents called me when I was little. Along with Lyce, Lycie, and Boo. They still call me those names, but I take pride in it. Whenever I used to go on websites like Club Penguin or Fantage, or other websites like that I always used Lyciboo. I just used 13 mostly because I love Final Fantasy XIII, and that was game that got me interested in the Final Fantasy series.
It was originally just "Amorix," a name I chose by making noises in my head until I found something vaguely coherent. I later appended "Adrian" to the start of the name, because that's my name and I thought it gave the username an almost fantasy-like flare.
I don't know if that was correct usage of the word "appended," but I also don't particularly care. You got my point.
I took mine from Captain Underpants. Specifically, Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot of Professor Poopypants.
So, there is this one page where Professor Poopypants asks everyone to change their name into sillier versions of their names, according to the first letter of their first name, the first letter of their last name and the last letter of their last name. I used my first name and my family name, so K= Flunky, A=Diaper, A= Head. Thus, Flunky Diaperhead became my online name for everything from 6th to 9th grade.
(Old Shame, I know. But I was 11 at the time and didn't know better.)

My username is my name. Well, the initials of my name.
Carlos Ildefonso Diego.
It's funny because people think it's from the Spanish poem or from the videogame, but I just hate having such a long name so I tend to use my initials for a lot of things.
I could have posted this a year ago, but what the hey...
When I registered as a Troper, I just wanted to go by the name "Incognito" since that's the name I use whenever I comment on anime-related blogs.
Alas, it turns out someone already registered under that nameNote 1 and without him/her/it(?) putting any self-description or random crap on his/her/its(?) personal Troper page... And since I had this strange fascination for the story of Metal Gear Rising: RevengeanceNote 2 which I'll admit I've only seen via ChipCheezum's Let's Play and its fresh from taking levels in badass main character Raiden, the word "Ninja" was added. Note 3 (OK, so Raiden's technically a "cyborg ninja"—adding more awesomeness to it and all that—but I'd like to keep a certain limit to the length of my username. Not to mention the word "Ninja" itself already sounds cool. Maybe I should've added "Slayer" as well...)
And so the name "IncognitoNinja" stuck as my current Troper handle.

On your pronoun confusion of this unknown user: please don't use "it" to refer to a person if not explicitly told to do so by the person in question; "It" Is Dehumanizing. It's far easier to just use the singular they note "But it's grammatically incorrect!": Actually, it's been in use since Shakespeare; the ambiguity can be mildly irritating but it sure as all hell ain't grammatically incorrect. when referring to a person of unknown gender than to amalgamate every possible pronoun they could want to be called by. As a grammar pedant, "him/her" and all its variations are abominations that must be erased from the English language.
...Whoops, I wrote a lot of words there. Don't take any of this personally, just please consider switching to a less clunky alternative placeholder. *removes grammar hat, goes back into lurker cave*

No offense taken. I only put "it" because—for all I know—it could be a botNote and I'm admittedly pissed since I can't use that handle. Then again, the mods seem to be good at sniffing out bot accounts anyway.
A fox pegasus...mind you I made this account when I was thirteen.
Take a wild guess.
My name is the origin of my troper handle.
It certainly has nothing to do with The Legend of Zelda, however.
Sheep are my favourite animals. I have tons of sheep related knick knacks all over my house like I'm some kind of old lady or something.
Happy Tree Friends, which can take some people who think I am "above it all" by surprise.
Just popped into my head one day.
I was watchin FMA
It's a nickname, given me by friends in college, based on my real name. It was usually delivered in a bad Cockney accent ("ROB'ree!")

How well does it match the trope?
