Well, I actually made this username up before the movie "Dark Water" came out, if that's where anyone thought it came from.  I joined this forum for a game and I needed a username, and I was drinking iced tea, and I was thinking "Oh hey that looks like dark water..." because there must have been a lot of iced tea mix in it or something.  And so that was my username on that thing, and I've been using it for almost everything I sign up for.  The other one that I use is Serpent____.  SerpentSword (another username on a game), SerpentScars (my hotmail address), etc. =P

And that's where my username came from.

If you ask for a banana, would you expect someone to hand you an orange? Or a fork?  No you wouldn't, because you asked for a banana, and you expect them to understand that a banana is not an orange or a fork.  It's the same principle.

I found out mine when i was thinking of an aim name. I had an asian friend and a mexican trying to help me make 1. And since we were all different race's they thought.. Hmm white... your a boy... and yoiur name is kyle.. so whiteboikyle but then they added 69 to the end of it.. so my aim is whiteboikyle69 lol.. But whiteboikyle sounds kinda better without the 69 :)

Mine is sorta boring.  Kate is my first name & Rose is my middle name.  I never thought about it but I really don't like roses much.  Roses are kinda cliche.  I vastly prefer sunflowers.  I am pretty much a tomboy & I don't go in for much girly stuff.

Mine was my nickname when I was in the army. I would always make jokes that I was too fragile to do (x) as I was in the Infantry because I was Jewish so one day a friend of mine starts calling me, G.I. Jew - The Greatest American Hebrew. It stuck.
I'm considered good looking in some countries

When I was thirteen, I was making a website. I couldn't decide on a domain name because so many were taken...This was five years ago and name choosing wasn't something I was good at back then.

Anyhow, I somehow came up with the-rise.co.uk and had that site up until a year ago.

I also created the username the_rise on Neopets. People just started calling me Rise. So, I had my internet pseudonym on Neopets WAY before it was cool to use a pseudonym. I started calling myself Rise anywhere online. Then, that account got frozen, and many Neopets accounts after that. I eventually ran out of username ideas, as most were taken. So, I thought of Riseykins, and used that. I also took Risey. So now on websites, I always go for Riseykins, 'cause it's never, ever taken! It was taken on one site, but it turned out that it was me anyhow and I'd registered and forgotten. So, I got my account back. Etsy, that was.

Mucho uninteresting. :D

=^.~= I'm new to PHP, so I probably won't understand what you're talking about!

I see non-English (native) people do that a lot...  Not sure why.  Then again, I see a lot of people I know irl do that.  But ingame, I've noticed a lot of non-English native people do it.

"Riseykins" sounds British.  Not sure why.

Naturally.

I actually stole IiI from someone on Lineage 2 (I'm sure he didn't come up with it, but that's where I copied it from).

Waynewex... I'm Wayne... From Wexford...

So, after days upon days of endless rounds of deducation, I came to the conclusion that maybe I should just cut the ford from my location and go with WayneWex; because as we all know, anything with an x in it is cruise control for cool.
