What does your username mean? How do you pronounce it? Why did you choose it?

I'll start.

1. What does your username mean?

Xhin is a respelling of Zen. It doesn't mean anything in particular, I just liked the way it looked.

2. How do you pronounce it?

Zin. Worth pointing out that where I live, -en and -in are both pronounced -in, so I've always pronounced Zen as Zin.

3. Why did you choose it?

I thought buddhism was really cool at the time and wanted a vaguely buddhist-referential name. Also this name happened during a time where I changed my name every other month. I'm not sure why I stuck with this one.

My name doesn't have a meaning.

There was a person at my school that went by Vandy. I always thought it was a cool name. Then I realized that I could have it in a way and so changed my online alias. At the time I was also between names and wanted my name to start with the letter V. Before this I had briefly changed to Vulpine since Fox was my favorite character in Smash Bros. I also considered Vaati, the Zelda villain.

1. What does your username mean?

Helios. God of the Sun. I would have went with Helios, but at the time... it was taken so I went with the closest one I could... Helius.

2. How do you pronounce it?

He-lee-us

And the third question was answered by the first.

@Helius: Why did you choose to be associated with the god of the sun?

Ground's what's around

i was originally "the prince of pain," which was duriel's title in diablo 2 (although i think it was patched to something else later on). when i would troll the life forum, qwey would call me all sorts of "pop" puns, and after i decided to stop being a little asshole, i changed it to my favorite one to get rid of the baggage and bad reputation that i'd built up with my original name (and by that point "prince of pain" seemed like an edgelord loser name)

I was learning about Greek and Mythology at the time. Helius was just kind of the name I used at the time.

It's the last name I remember using on the old game talk

First I was "Kyogre Master 8" (I was 10 years old on the Pokemon Sapphire forum; Kyogre was my favorite Pokémon and 8 was my favorite number, I guess).

Then I was KM8 (I matured enough to realize my original name was awful). For a while I went as KM8 because I wanted old friends to be able to recognize me (but I knew it was bad).

I switched to Cetasaurus recently because it sorta means "Kyogre." ("Ceta" is Greek for "whale/legendary sea monster," and "-saurus" is a Latin suffix for "extinct giant creatures?")

I think it's technically pronounced "see-tuh-saurus," but whenever I read it, I find myself pronouncing it "say-tuh-saurus."

I don't think KM8 was bad. I pronounced it as "kay-mate" which is kind of fun to say. But I did not know what it stood for.

@Brandy – Oh cool. Set-ahh-saurus works fine for me! Whatever you prefer.

@Vandy – Thanks haha.
