CB Name Meanings! 

CB Name Meanings! 

Pretty self-explanatory; what does your name on the CB mean, how did you choose it, things like that? A lot of you have really cool names.

I'll start! My name, Blackfooted Bobcat, is a mix of "blackfooted cat" and bobcat".  I like both of those cats, and there are... a few bobcats that are returning to where I live. Anyone else?

Hey, I'm Jynx. Not the Jinx from earlier, but JYNX.

I took inspiration from Hex's name (just realized that her name was previously Jinx, haha) because I love magic and it sounded mysterious.

There's not much else to say, I guess, but Mushu says hi.

Hi, I'm PianoMan! 

My name on CB used to be just my irl first name but I wanted to change it to be more CB appropriate. I decided on Piano Man because I play piano and "Piano Man" is the name of a song by Billy Joel I like.

Well, my name, Lunar Flight, comes from being called Luna by my friends (because I'm similar to Luna in Wings of Fire), and I love the idea of having my own wings and flying. Lunar sounded cooler than Luna, so here I am as Lunar Flight! It also is a little gender neutral, which is nice if I actually am a demigirl (I'm questioning, not sure yet).

Moon Wolf was just kind of the username I used for many other things, but also, originally I had this account somewhere else, and I called myself celestialrocks, which means asteroids, and then it changed to lunarmoon somehow, and then Moon Wolf. I also do like the moon and also wolves, like many other CBers on here.

"Sinusoidal" is an adjective used to describe a shape that resembles a sine wave. I chose it because I love math.

I chose my name after the flower amaryllis which on second thought, actually sounds way better. Maybe i should consider changing it to that. Anyway, my mother loves plants and gardening in general, and she planted that last year--i remember thinking it was a pretty name, so...yeah. Not much of a story.

hmm.. i don’t actually know. i used to be Lizardo, which was a wizard lizard character i created a long time ago but i changed it because it didn't really fit me anymore. i guess i wanted to be something non lizard related because at school basically the only things people knew me as was the girl obsessed with lizards. i think fallen leaf was a suggestion from someone after i made a name change thread and i really liked it (leaves are cool and fall is my favorite season and it's naturey in general which i really like)

Wow, did I never mine?  Welp, here it is!  The name Sterling came from two places - it was the name of my favorite character in a fantasy series I loved when I was younger, and the metal sterling silver (because silver is one of my favorite colors).  Plus it's just a really pretty word!

Apparently it's also a name for British money.  The more you know~

I'm Forest Nymph because I love nature (specifically, forests) and have always seen myself as a bit of a forest nymph! I also love writing and reading fantasy, so naming myself after a mythical being was perfect!

The swim team in my town, which I am part of, is called the Sea Dragons, and since I enjoy swimming very much, when I decided to change my name from what it used to be, I changed it to Seadragon. (The other thing I came up with was Tawny Owl, but I don't think that would suit me as well.)

I liked how 'Forsythia' (ie the plant) could be read as "For Sythia". I planned on being Sythia, but I typed Forsythia instead. So, Forsythia it is!

The Merrie Woods is because we were on the highway, and there was this sign naming a road just sticking out. Merrie Woods Road, I think, but what stuck in my head was the "Merrie" with an e, so I put in Merrie Woods.

I might change my name to Burning Bright after reading all of this, I'm not sure... But if I do, it's because I love the visual that comes with burning bright, and I want to be kind of like a candle in the darkness, and I think I'm pretty passionate and that seems like a passionate thing, and it comes from one of my favorite poems The Tyger (Tyger, tyger, burning bright/In the forests of the night...), which, I love tigers and animals and I love poetry and am a poet and that's also just a really fun poem to echo. Or I might do what I did here or use both. And, pangolin, YES HELP SAVE THE PANGOLINS!! And also vaquitas! And lots of others!
