What does your user "name" mean?

When I first started FW I had no idea what name I would chose for my character then out of the blue, I remember I liked the name of Elley, but seeing as it was already taken, I new I would need to spice it up, so I choose the name Elleyisnami for no perticular reason:

Anyway it got me to thinking what does my user name mean? I mean this is the name I choose for myself, instead of my parents choosing for me so I looked it up.

Elleyis - similar to elle in English is Light, also similar to Ellis is a male first name of Greek origin. It comes from the same root as the names Elias and Elijah.The meaning of Ellis is God is Lord.

Nami - stands for "wave" or "surge" as in Tsunami in Japanese.


So my Username translates to Lightwave, Lightsurge,

Cool.

    Mine's from Dragon Age (it's a PS3, Xbox360, and PC game made by Bioware incase you haven't heard of it). It's my absolute all-time favorite game. <3
    Lyrium is basically the equivalent of mana in the game, but it's really sought after. There's even a kind of black-market drug-trade that smuggles Lyrium around to people. Lol.
    I just really loved the lore behind it and the word itself, so that's what I named my character. I thought it sounded poetic enough for a Bard~ ;)

    As for me it's a mix between
    - my fav alcohol : Gin
    - the country I was living in at this time : US
    Like Gin.fr when I was in France, then Gin.us when I was in the US.

    Then since I m so full of myself, my sexyness and my intellect, therefore I do think I'm a genius :D

    Put everything in a shaker and tadaaaaaaaaa : Ginius :p

    Well, aside from obviously being a female form of Lucifer (aka Bringer of Light)... you'll only find the name "Luciferia" here:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLEGh_CfYEg

    Was watching an episode of "Taboo" and a performer was called that as well, she would do all kinds of freaky painful and sexual things to appeal (arouse) her audience.

    someone told me that he saw a Sugarboy in a anime named "Fairy Tale" but the reason i came up with this name is because http://youtu.be/I-fVMyg679s . this song was a hit in my country a while back and i kinda got it as a nickname when i got sick a couple years ago

    Btw, a name I use whenever I play a male character is Dragomir (I do have a warrior alt named Dragomir here as well, but he's been stuck at lv20 for 3+ months)

    Sounds manly, right?
    Well, actually it's the surname of a vampire princess from some random vampire novel you probably wouldn't care to know of :D

    Orissa came from Darkeden, it has been the name of pendant. There the most of item's names come from sumerian mythology, folklore (ghoths of nature), etc. Orissa is the name of state in India, I've found it much later
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orissa#Origin_of_the_name_of_the_State

    Nakada (my vamp) is one of Malkavians, I've found it in Encyclopaedia Vampirica and the Clanbook of Malks (a part of World of Darkness game system)

    My other chars have also names from Darkeden. Except Ravana, it's from World of Darkness
