Just curious, how did everyone come up with their usernames? There's always some interesting story/reason behind them. They're like puzzles.
Mine is fairly simple. My first name is Sara, spelled without an "H." There's another Sarah in my class and my mother (an instructor) called me "Sara sin hache" and her "Sara con hache" for a little while. So I just took that, but in English. Also, whenever I have to spell my name over the phone I literally just say, "Sara, no 'H.'"
Mine is straightforward as well "colochita" = "curly girl" in Spanish (but with endearing tones), spelled with a k because my first name is Katherine.

Tons of women from my generation, in my country, have the name Maria as their 'first' first name. As in Maria Eugenia, Maria Esther, Maria Teresa, Maria de Lourdes, etc. But they are always called by their 'second' first name: Eugenia, Teresa, etc.
That is my case.
The first time I visited the US, I told people the name I was usually called, and the pronunciation was so strange and different I didn't like it. Thus, I decided to choose Maria as my name.
Since the begining of the Internet I ve been Maria everywhere, and I like it very much.
Mine is pretty obvious... I was going through a total mad love of all things Narnia at the time. I wanted something that was only one word, and my name is Natasha, so Narnia seemed to fit the bill. I remember thinking it would for sure be taken, but alas, it wasn't. I have tried to use it for other various interweb things and it's ALWAYS taken.

Just think I used to worry 'bout things like that,
Used to worry 'bout rich and skinny, 'til I wound up poor and fat,
Nowadays I kind of worry where my mind's been at,
Just think I used to worry 'bout things like that. (Delbert McClinton - I Used to Worry from Never Been Rocked Enough)
My name is Becky. My friend's dad gave me the name Speckla because he said I was a speck of girl. I've been Speck or Speckla most of my life. I identify with that name more than I do my real name. My siggy should explain how the name evolved from Becky.
My name is April and growing up a friends dad always called me Spring. At one point I was living with my sister and in the age of AOL (dial up! what!!!) she created a screen name for me so I could use the internet and she came up with Spring1onU. Viola.
Byron,GA> Charleston, SC> Jacksonville, FL> Guilford, CT> Rohnert Park, CA! A southern drawl in sunny Cali! . The amount of time from slipping on the peel and landing on the pavement is exactly one bananosecond. I do have a secret yen for pink in unexpected places. ~ninja dog
I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
