    Ok, whatever! The Latin was something that come up in my brain though.

    Never heard of a pokémon called Mecheon. Are you sure it's from Pokémon and not Digimon?

    The 'X' in front is just to confuse astronomers perhaps. I just thought it looked/sounded better.

    Yes. Its inspired by pokemon

    While everyone was off naming a small round blue pokemon known now as "Marril" but then as "Pikablu" based upon no actual firm knowledge, I was immagening what would happan when you combinded heavy artilery with a small fox-like pokemon called "Eevee", noted for all of its evolutions ending with "Eon"

    About the latin thing, names are different in other languages, cos they might be hard to pronounce or spell. So they change them slightly. For example jesus is greek for joshua which is a hebrew name.

    ah, the origins of afronight.

    well it dates back to the days of starcraft. well my best friend decided to grow an afro. it was basically the center of many inside jokes and humor etc. eventually he started a clan in starcraft called the afroknights. he was the leader (afroknight_69) and i was afroknight_76. when i decided to move onto wc3 i decided to keep that name since i couldnt think of anything better. i left the 'k' out for laziness purposes.

    My nick comes from Harry Potter. Harry's and Voldemort's wands each have a feather from the same phoenix.

    I was a huge fan of the Variable Geo fighting game series back in the day. My name is of my favorite character I used to play from that series, Satomi Yajima;

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Variable Geo (VG) has sort of become my personal mascott series due to my combined love of catfights (and I dont mean felines), video games and anime, which was why I adopted it as my screen name in anything gaming, anime or female combat related. Clef_san is my pen name for everything else, which is my middle name.

    Well mine has quite a long story for a name.
    I loved the name Ace when i was younger and started to adapt letters to it because it was normally always taken on the net and stuff. I eventually come to the conlusion i like Mace the best and no i was so young i didnt know waht starwars was. Finding that was more popular then my old name Ace i tried changing a different letter eventually coming to the conclusion of Mavu which i thought sounded really mystic or discreet ect. But something was missing so i started changing letters and adding letters and stuff. It eventually became Mavue. Which i thought was really cool but i was always asked if i was japanese or chinese so i started changing and moving letters around eventually coming to what you see today of MAVUS! (M-ay-v-uh-s)
