Does it mean anything? Is it named after someone?

Okay, I admit, I made this thread purely to tell everyone why my username is Akabane. Akabane Kuroudo is the most BA anime charachter ever imagined.

    I wanted to do a popular saying for mine:) It exemplifies honesty and integrity, in that we are all forced to accept certain situations in their entirety, with all good and bad components.

    In 5th grade, my friends and I made up names for each other that all started with an M on an N. They were based on our actual names. Mine was Millan, and CAD are my initials.

    I used to have two pet Muscovy ducks. Raising them turned me into a crazy duck loving person who likes to think of themself as a metaphorical duck ^^

    Well, that was the name my friends made up for me. My friend Emma became Nemicross, Kate became Mate, and I, Camille, became Millan. Whenever people give me nicknames, they start with the "Mille" bit of my name. Unless, they're British, in which case they always want to call me Cam.

    ^Millancad- Nemicross would be an awesome name.

    Mine should be self evident. I am a parent, finding a place for my S to attend college.

    I grew up in Kenya during the earlier part of my childhood, and i'm deeply attached to it. My username, Harambee, is the motto of Kenya. it means "Let us all pull together" in Swahili.

    I am part Romani Gypsy, and my nickname when I was younger was "gypsy eyes" because my eyes are such a strange color and shape and it comes from the gypsy side of me.

    PS: There was a thread just like this about a year ago. Google it.
  • AkabaneAkabane - Posts: 230 New Member
    @fizix- i think 2nd one lol
  • MuscovyMuscovy Registered User Posts: 308 Member
    ^ should be closer to the first, that seems more like a Japanese pronunciation: ak-ah-bah-neh
  • fairy_dreamsfairy_dreams Registered User Posts: 3,377 Senior Member
    haha. romanigypsyeyes: For the longest time, I read your username as "romanpigeyes"....

    Mine is just a really bad spin off from my email. I don't know where the "fairy" came from. I think it's because I was fascinated by all the different ways people spell it.....
