Before I was sophiedp I went as zairozo. I started using sophiedp after signing up for FanFiction. I was going to go with sophiedp for dA, but it was already taken and zairozo was the next thing I thought of.
I wanted to make a username that had a common J name (Like my actual name and nickname) but not to where it would be too easy to find my real name out (I likes mah privacy). With this, the other J name was Jim that came to mind. Now I was developing my online username before joining dA, it was for Gaia online to begin with. Ironically enough, I found this site's abbreviation to be dA... then it hit me, Jim-DA (You're supposed to pronunciate the d and a, and not 'da')
mine comes from a video game called "Oblivion" at least the Zenithar part. Zenithar is one of the gods that the people in the game pray too. i cant quite remember what hes all about....if its balance, or war....
The "Thorn" part came from two places-Oblivion, and Childhood memories. When i was little i wanted my name to be Thorn, and to be a warrior princess from a vampiric race! (yeah, not your typical "little girl pony wishes" lol)and my character in Oblivion-my main, strongest most badassiest character-is named Thorn-Zenithar!
i know i know, im random, but i couldnt resist commenting!!
I'm called Mr-Prune because I drink a lot of tea and water, which has the consequence of me going to the toilet a lot Along with other nicknames I received like "Mr. Regular", people thought I drank a lot of prune juice because of my frequent toilet visits So I combined the "Mr." from Mr. Regular and Prune has been a nickname of mine for a long time now!
I don't change usernames often,because I always spend the most time picking the names for everything .I love the username I have on all the other sites,but I wanted something different for dA...So I started searching...I was looking at Hebrew name,Gaelic,Slovenian,Japanese...And I found Rowan-which is a Gaelic name and it means red-headed.I always wanted to have red hair so it fit me .And haru means spring in Japanese,my favourite season(shares the first place with autumn )...So that's it .
My nick on DA came in the simplest name: my name is Yulia and the Eanglish version of it is Julia or Juliet so shortly-Jull. the 'chan' came from the way some friends call me-'Baka Chan'. I wanted to use it at first but...It was taken XD
MMy love for the anciet egyption culture. When I was 6 I learned everything i could about ancient Egypt. Now, most of the little facts that people generally wouldnt know, and say did you know..?, I already knew
Mine comes from a dreamcatcher that my mum made for me with beads and things I chose for it. I think I lost it when the ceiling fell down in my room, but I will always remember the little trinket that kept all those bad dreams away.
I wanted to be called Firefox, but that name was already taken. So I decided that, because I love fire, foxes, the moon and Gods (in this case, Goddesses), I figured it'd be cool if I mingled them together.
My name is Katherine, everyone calls me Katie, but my artist name was Rine. My best friend mixed Rine with Katie and started calling me Rinie. Ever since then it's the name I put on all my art , though I spell it a bit odd.
