    So I'm curious as to how you each came up with your user name/handle for FFBE and/or this forum. Please also include how you pronounce your handle in addition to its origin.

    I'll start!

    keoten ("keh - oh - tehn") is a super broken Japanese translation of my middle name that I came up with in like ninth grade. I thought "Keo" meant "voice" and "ten" means "heaven".

    I just used Google Translate ENG -> JP and come to find out, "voice" is actually "Koe" ::rofl::, and it should probably have been written Ten No Koe (or heaven's voice). Ah the ignorance of teenagerhood.

    Arashi (Ah-rah-she) means 'Storm' in Japanese. However that's really just a side note.

    I was very heavily playing Kantai Collection when I started FFBE and one of the ships I had just gotten was one named Arashi. I liked her a lot, so I made my screenname after her. By extension, that means I based my username on a Japanese WWII-era Kagero-class Destroyer. This is also a relatively new username for me as I have other, older usernames for other things.

    Lótus-> Or Lotus in english, is a reference to eastern culture, more precisely to chinese novels than I'm a great fan.

    Haddock -> From Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III, a character of How To train your Dragon franchise. I love this franchise but never read the books...

    I think the pronounce is the same for both english and portuguese.

    I play FFBE, and this forum is about FFBE, hence I'm literally one of the fellow FFBErs.

    I know it's lame but I was lazy.::rudecat10::

    I originally had another account but the admins never activated it for me, so I gave up and made an account called 808, as I couldn't think of anything other than a TR 808 rythm stuck in my head

    Handle that I've been using over decades in many places. No real story behind the name either. Just slapped psycho and hamster together because.... I dunno?

    Long time ago, I played a casual game that required you to name yourself. I wanted to name myself 'a', but it wouldn't allow less than 3 characters. Then, I tried 'aaa', but it also required a name with at least a number in it. So, I tried 'aa1', but it was taken. After that, 'aa2' which was also taken. Out of frustration, I added a random number (5) and it went through as 'aa25'. Since then, I somehow keep using this name 'aa25' everywhere else.

    Xero (pronounced zero) is the name of a character from a series called Xionic Madness found on Newgrounds.com. It is based on the Madness series found on the same site. 86 is the computer number I had in high school at the time I was 15 years old., hence 8615. Been a number I have used in various names.
