Ok
i dont really know if this is considered a game, tbh i dont think it is
so ill put it here

Anyway
Where did your name come from?
For me, basically, i just pick random adjectives and stuff, Lol. (like my yt name is steeleagle17)
The second n in ravenn was actually a typo when I made a username for combat arms. It looked cooler than darkraven12 so i kept it Smile .
And ive been using it since then. The 12 is just random, lol.

Psyneku (my YT and official name) comes from a diverse species called Haranga, which is a rare Japanese animal.

There was a rescue centre where they kept endangered Haranga and it was called Psy's Area.

I then added Neku on the end because it was the name of a receipe I love "Neku's Curry".

Yeah kinda random but meh.

I like to dig deep into my thinking.

One summer at camp when I was like 9 or so I was doing a craft that was basically a foam ball (like the kind you would make a solar system model out of) with small pieces of yarn coming out of it everywhere (like a yarn puffball) and two big googly eyes. It was called a Snoogle (no "h").

When I got my dog, Ozzie, who is a fluffy and adorable Bichon Frise, when I was 12 or so he reminded me of the Snoogles I used to make. So, I added a "h" after the S and he became known as my Shnoogle lol.

That's where my username came from =D

Yoshi is by far my favourite Nintendo character, and when I first got Super Smash Bros Brawl, I was excited to see his final smash. What did he do?

He breathed fire!

Yoshi Breathes Fire.

Yeah it's fairly simple, but it's somewhat original since no one on youtube had it!

When I got my Xbox 360, I was trying to think of an awesome Gamertag but didn't just mean for one game. I was remembering to when I watched my cousin play COD4 and yelling, "Yeah I just clutched the game!" So after many different variations, I got zzClutchTimezz, where I can clutch the game in several different games, whether it'd be the game winning kill or the game winning goal/touchdown in the final seconds.

Also, I'm pretty clutch if I do say so myself Smile

Oh how to start.

Well, back when I was in 5th grade I got into making my own characters, and the first one I came up was the one that gained the name "Kanrik". Note: This was before Neopets made the horrible mistake of using the same name (and the same spelling) for one of their characters. When I went to join Gaia Online I went to use the name Lenwe, but apparently it was taken, so I went with Kanrik. Anyone I met online knew me as Kanrik, and the name more or less stuck with me, even when I made my Youtube; Kanrik had to be in the name.

Now how did I come up with the name? Well, I thought Can-Rick had an interesting sound, since the basis of the character was "can he do it?", but Canrick didn't seem like a fun spelling. Then it went to Kanrick (which most people still put, bakas -.-) but I didn't like it still, so I shortened it to Kanrik.

Thats how I got one of the 4 names I use online (the other being Salvador, Lenwe, and Los Lobos).

Before its asked: Girarik became a name I used online because somehow Kanrik was taken, and it a combination of Giratina (Gira) and Kanrik (rik).

Since my original name was AnjuTehDarkBunny, ill explain that

Anju is a character from a manga i like, Chibi Vampire, and since she's a vampire i decided to put Dark in there, and since i felt it needed something after that Bunny just seemed fitting. I did realized it looked stupid as AnjuDarkBunny, so i decided to put The in the middle, but messed up, but kept it since its cuter :3

Hmm how did I come up with Evil Oogie again?

Oh I remember, at the time I made up this name (no idea when really) I was really into The Nightmare Before Christmas. Oogie Boogie was, and still is, my favorite Disney character of all time, and I just shortened it to Oogie as Jack does in the movie. I added the Evil just because I felt an adjective was called for and Oogie was certainly evil.

And yeah... Oh as for the 117 in my gamertag, simple. Masterchief was spartan 117
and plain Evil Oogie was already taken.

A year or so ago, when I first joined youtube, forums, etc., I was playing brawl a lot. My main was toon link, so, I wanted something slightly more original then Elf, which, of course, fits Link well. From this, I came up with Elf Army. This, however, didn't fit in the nickname thing in Brawl. So, to fit the 5 characters they allow, I wrote "Elf", and added the first two letters in Army to get Elfar.

As for my youtube, Elfar was taken (though as closed account), and I thought Elfarz was the coolest thing that was so close to Elfar.
