Please somebody tell me if a thread exists for this already, which I think there is but i'm going to do this anyways. 

 

How did you guys come up with your usernames? I'm going to start, so I love coding, tech and what not, and ants. So simply, I put Tech and Ant together, combining two of my favorite hobbies and my username was made. 


Ants:
(x1) Campontous semitstaceus ~20 workers, 1 Queen
(x1) Pheidole californica 100-50 workers, 4 Queens
(x1) Camponotus vicinus ~10 workers, 1 Queen (all black variety)
(x1) Tetramorium immigrans ~lots and lots of brood / ~too many workers, 1 Queen
(x8) Myrmercocystus mexicanus -1 Queen
(x5) Mymercocystus mimcus -1 Queen
(x1) Mymercocystus testaceus ~15 workers, 1 Queen

A little topic I'm working on: https://www.formicul...ve/#entry164553

Well, most people do the cookie cutter ants (insert where you live). I sorta flipped that around. I live in the temperate region (New England) and put ant.

This is my name for everything. If this name is ever taken(which is very unlikely) I add "101DDD". I think this name originated from when I was 8-9 and played roblox, people wrote ":D" but I failed to recognize the smiley face. So that's where I got the D part from. There are 3 of them because everything is better when there is 3 of them. 101 comes from stuff like "how to _____ 101" I added another 3 more Ds because everything is better when it's symmetrical.

I wanted something that was fun... Buzz in the Tunnels is my ant's YouTube name. I kind of wanted something that meant both ants and bees because one day I'd love to keep bees too and maybe something meaning news. I liked the idea of "BitT" for a nickname for both getting "bit" by something and the "little bit" for small things? I don't know my thought process is weird and messy but it comes together in the end. lol

While my name is cookie cutter, I would have done something different, however ever since I joined the AntsCanada forum in 2018 as AntsDakota, I had the vision of my website, AntsDakota.com. Only now is it coming to reality, but I still had it planned all along. I did have some more interesting usernames in mind, but I'm a very uniform person, and my username had to match the franchise.

My username is a mix between Arthropods and Invertebrates (which is the name of my blog), of which the best sounding variant is Arthroverts.

 

Thanks,
