Re: What does your username stand for/ or mean?

95 is chosen because, in my opinion, 1995 was one of the best years for movies.

My usernames on forums and such usually consist of "fan95." What I'm a fan of in the username depends on what forum I'm posting in. On Harry Potter forums, I'm "harryfan95." On video game forums, I'm "atarifan95."

The first time I used a username like this was on forums about L. Frank Baum's Oz books, where I'm called "ozfan95." "Ozfan95" is my main username around the web. It's the username I use for Goodreads and my blogs (which I'm way behind on updating, BTW).
"HARRY! DID YA PUT YER NAME IN DA GOBLET A FIYA?" he asked calmly.

Deitus is a concept I find fascinating. Most famously used by Alastar Crowley to mean "Will to come into being as a God".

Basically means to become a god yourself, rather than submit to another.

I have an interest in alternative philosophies, and have used it as a gamer tag for a couple years now.

Those who aren't big followers of David Bowie's music must see this as an odd explanation for a username.

Actually, a cat's paw was in my face when I registered and I was fighting to see around it.

I have eight of these monsters!

Re: What does your username stand for/ or mean?

Let's start with the easy part: 8 and 12 are my favorite numbers.

More difficult to explain, Singing Bird was the name of the Indian girl in the Kirsten series of American Girl books. I had the Kirsten doll and was obsessed with everything about her. RIght about the time I read the books, a father-daughter group similar to something along the lines of Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts was founded called Indian Princesses. It was supposed to be a way to learn more about Native American culture (which some took more seriously than others), but also provide father daughter time. I loved it! The name I chose for that was Singing Bird, after the character in the book. Later, I kept using it for usernames because of the happy memory but also because I love to sing and I like birds in general.

Feologild is just the name of an abbot that died in 832 who was probably an Archbishop of Canterbury for almost 3 months in 832.


I don`t think it means anything. If it does than i don`t know what it is.

That is a oddly specific detail in history. May I ask, what significance this person has to you?

Oh he has no significance to me at all. I just liked the name.

And the reason i know about him is simply because i at one point was wondering how many archbishop of Canterbury there have been.

My name is a mix of two Ace Frehley songs-- "Fractured Quantum" and "Rocket Ride". I took the first sword in each title and smashed them together.

I like the character of Gellert Grindelwald... and I like phoenixes.
