I'm always curious about people's usernames. Why did you use the name you did and what does it mean? Does it relate al all to your ED?

 

My username is a bit nerdy. It's sort of in reference to a play called Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead which is itself a reference to Hamlet where Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are two minor characters. Since I've always identified with Ophelia (trapped, sad, mental...) I chose the name OpheliaIsDead when I first joined MPA. But, later on, I forgot my password and had to make a new account. Thus, OphelisIsReallyDead. Lol 

 

Anyways tell me your stories! I'm curious. <3

I used to eat ungodly amounts of peanut butter and my friends at school called me Peanut. I've gone through a few usernames but "peanut" has always been in it.

I really don't know. I picked a word. I wanted a single word. Sesame is a cute word, sesame oil smells heavenly. There's no deeper meaning than that.

Fairly simple, I did not want my real name....more of a "secret" name? The word figuratively means secret. Seems silly a handful of years later, but still has a nice ring to it.

I couldn’t think of a name so I just looked around the room. It’s the title of a book someone sent me. I never even read the book, I sent it back...

It refers to Smells Like Teen Spirit, the most famous song of my favorite band, Nirvana. It is not connected to my ED but to what is shared in the forum, like "here we are now , come and entertain us with your doubts ect."

Pixies are well, pixies, and hime means princess in Japanese. I’ve always felt connected to fairies and the whole fairylike aesthetic. I guess it also relates to my ED because fairies are small and light, like I wanna be

It's a jab at myself

If anyone watched Bob's Burgers, mine should look familiar. Gene is the lovable, pudgy goofball. He loves food and is unathletic. I'm a cis female but I identify with Gene in a lot of ways.

I want to be tiny so my bones protrude (not majorly, although I say that now, lol). My first username was 'mirror_why', if I remember correctly.

You were without the 'really' before, weren't you? I remember seeing you around here 😊 not literally, haha.

Cool thread
