the 'Brutal' part comes from a comment one of my best friends made about my headbanging after a night out and my special way with words. and the 'Absolute' part comes from an inside joke where every point made ends with "and THAT is absolute". so... it's absolute that i'm brutal.

Mine has a roots in my horribly geeky side. I have a huge love of sci-fi/post ap films and I am a notorious day dreamer. Hence a combination of the two. :oops:
Honestly I should be working...

I was thinking of great stage/pen names when on a trip a few years back and it just popped into mind.

I have a BS in Psychology, thus the reference to the philosopher Immanuel Kant. I also like Tori Amos a lot, and she was originally in a band called Y Kant Tori Read. Can-Can is just something girly and cutesy and also blatantly sexual in a brash & crass sort of way. But put it all together and you realize - can can kan't....it's the opposite of the Little Train That Could. I am the little girl who can't. I like to remind myself not to self-sabotage. :D It's my username & also my nom de plume.

I was Valkyrie_Grrl on Heavenly Hair. When I came up with that, it was a hint to my heritage (Norwegian) and my love of Norse artwork/literature/mythology and a play on riot grrl.

I wanted a new and excitng username, one that I really liked. I was researching the seven deadly sins and it had a list of demons associated with them and the one for lust was Lillith. I thought it was very me, and I love it.

"pixie" is an old nickname of mine - a reference to that fact I'm only 5' tall and into mythology, fantasy and paganism :P
"neon" is for my love of all things bright, neon, happy, shiny, glowy and cybery!

I've just changed to this after using the same net name, Silentlybound for about 10 years. That was pretty obviously a reference to certain practises which I have been known to enjoy and it was also my domain name for several years.

I primarily changed it because I've started working with young people in a highly sensitive arena, and I figured it wasn't really appropriate anymore. This name is just something I made up on the spot after spontaneously buying an LJ rename token and then having no idea what I actually wanted. It reflects my love of dystopic literature and films and is also unique online, as far as I know.

A few years back I decided I needed a change of name. I came up with SynthetiKat because I really started to get into synthetic hair, unnatural color hair dying and the like. Then I picked the end to be cat because I've been a cat lover my whole life, I've been a cat for Halloween many times and I've had cats in my life since I was 5. The K is because I didn't want to use the C. I didn't like the way it looked. Kinda boring but that's where it came from!

The origins of my name have come from 2 differant places & the last word in my name came first then the second one came second & the first word came last lol heres the origins of my name then:

Ren - Friends nickname for me
Rabbit - My boyfrined used to call it me before he passed on
wild - My boyfrined also called me this because im the one thing hed never quit - was referenced to a drug with a rabbit on it i think one of its nicknames was white rabbit (he wasnt a drug addict or anything its just one of thoses things you experiment with at some point in your life)

back when i was like 12 or so i was completely new to the internets and anime at the same time. I was such a little kid back then and watched animes with princesses and which made me think 'I love anime, I'd love to be an awesome princess' so I made it up lol. Ive had it ever since. I kind of think sometimes its a bit childish but, what the hell lol!

Bunnys just my nickname :)

When I was 12 I cut my hair quite short and always tied it up in really high pigtails at the top of my head and my friend said I looked like I had bunny ears :lol: . And so she started to call me bunnykins.. it caught on. But enventualy no one could be bothered saying Bunnykins so they shortened it.

My real name is Stephie. Not Stephanie. Stephie. And my parents have no idea as to why they named me that they just felt like it XD.

The "Kitten" part is because I love felines, and my personality/appearance is somewhat kitten-like. I guess you could say I'm playful, little in size, energetic, feisty, and I have a biting problem. The "Attack" part is because of the feistyness...I'm sure there's been a time when you've been attacked by a ferocious little kitten before. I'm always jumping around corners and pretending I know karate. :twisted:

My younger sister graduated from 8th grade the same year I graduated from high school and we were being silly. Amidst the silliness, I got the title Buster of Punks.

My original username came about when I joined EZboard, I was pretty desperate to post so borrowed from my boyfriends dj name; biocow and became biorach. It was never something that suited me but I just kept on using it.

My new name came about when I set up my business...I just liked the way that Rachi Graves sounded and I wanted a stage name/alias for my work!!

Well I used to go round with the alias bad-ass, and tbh that wasnt very cool at all and I have no idea where I got it from (still have it as my deviantart username because I have uploaded *SO* much onto the account I just dont have the heart to change it), and so I started thinking about picking a new internet nickname. It was also the time to change my e-mail address because cute_leah1 was a bit past it!!!! I dont really have any idea where deadteddys came from but I know I have a big obsession with teddy bears, so probably from that! And the fact im 'goff' I put dead in front of it, and its 'ys' instead of 'ies' is because im slightly silly :) Easier for me to remember!
Blarg! Hope that explains :i2:

Mine just popped into my head one day when I was thinking of dreads and I decided to geek it up a bit by using some leet in there. So no that exciting really.
