Why did you

Why did you

Why did you choose your CB name? REMADE!!!


There was only one comment on the post above. So, I made a new post!


I chose my CB name, not because Moonlight sound mysterious or pretty or anything like that, but because the moon is special to me because we sang the moon song every night at camp before going to sleep.

I chose Mirax because I wanted a Star Wars name, and I really like the character Mirax Terrik from the Star Wars X-Wing novels. (Plus Mirax is a cool sounding name. XD)

I chose Clouded Leopard because I've always liked leopards, and clouded leopards are very pretty animals, as well as me liking the word 'cloud'.

I chose my CB name because I adore Joan of Arc; (she's one of my favorite heroines.) The B. is not my intitial for my last name; but rather stands for the last name of my first character I made on Cricket; Joan Black.

I chose my CB name because I was looking for something that kind of reflected my personality, but I wouldn't want to change later on. I originally wanted to use the name of the protagonist in the book I'm writing, Amber, but I wasn't quite set on it. Eventually I chose Embers in the Ashes because if you took the first letter in 'Ashes' and put it in the place of the E in 'Embers' you have 'Ambers'. Also, I thought it kind of represented my optimistic personality because the embers are like the hope for a fire, and I have a bunch of hope for our world and our environment. Also, it sounds cool. But that was just a cherry on top :) :P

And my CB name used to be Amber! It's a popular name, I guess.

3 reasons:

1. I am OBSESSED with the color blue, and always have been. Pretty much everything I own is blue.

2. Bluebirds are symbols for happiness, and I thought that fit me pretty well.

3. There is a lyric in a Fall Out Boy song that says, "If you knew, knew, what the bluebirds sang at you, you would never sing along, Cast them out ‘cause this is our culture, these new flocks are nothing but vultures" And they are my favorite band, so... yeah. That's how I chose my name.

Well, originally I called myself Lyra, after Lyra in The Golden Compass. Then Scylla told me their already was a Lyra, so I couldn't be Lyra. So I tried thinking of a new name, gave up, and was doing my homework when, out of the blue, the word 'cockleburr' popped into my mind. And I knew it was my name. And, ever since, I have been Cockleburr.

CB Names are interesting to me. For instance, Shadowmoon changed her name to Autum Leaves. For some reason, it's hard for me to imagine 'Shadowmoon' and 'Autumn Leaves' as the same person, even though they are. Names make a big impact on other's views of you and people, I think. Who knows. :/

As you probobly know my CB name used to be Windswift, which was my character on kyndom.   I kept her for a while then icy suggested changing it for the CB.   I seriously thought about it for a while.  But Windswift was just a part of me, I wasn't willing to let it go.   Then cyrrptic's gryphon RP rolled along and got me totally hooked on them.    One night I decided I would change my name for good.   And Kaleidoscope Gryphon I became!  

Kaleidoscope because that just described my personality. And gryphon- well you probobly know already:)

I chose my name because Kate Wetherall from The Mysterious Benedict Society is one of my most favorite characters of all time. At first, my name was Kate Wetherall, but I changed it to Kate-the-Great because it has a nicer ring to it.

I was first DRAGON because I love everything dragon-ish and my first charrie on the CB was a dragon. Spark Skylord from Kyngdom.

then I changed it to Nebula because,

1, I like the word.

2, actual nebulas are so beautiful and swirly and colorful.

3, I always liked astronomy and seeing all of the constellations and stellar formations out in space.

I believe I was remembering the time I mistook a garlic scape for a green bean. It was like a spicy supernova (when a large star explodes) was in my mouth. Although, I may change it once I find something suitable.

I chose the name Leeli because back in the day, I was OBSESSED with the Wingfeather Saga. And Leeli was pretty much my favorite character. I still love the Wingfeather Saga, and always will, but just not as much as I used to.
