Denizens of Mognet. Readers of Nova Crystallis. Spillovers from NeoGAF. And citizens of other similar internet communities. You all have usernames on here, and to me, they're typically obscure and most likely reference something that I - an uncultured heathen - am not very familiar with. So what's the story behind the username of your choice? Where has it come from? Being the OP, I may as well start with mine. I first set foot on a Final Fantasy-related forum many years ago (at least it feels like a long time ago for me. This was around maybe early 2009) as Stella Nox Fleuret. This being a site that allows members to regularly change their usernames, for no concrete reason I decided to jettison most of the character's name and shorten it down to the current and simple Fleur. And I've stuck with it since. It's hardly a profound username origin I admit, but it's somewhat further up the ladder than if I had called myself xXxepicgamergurl<3xX. Additionally, it's hilarious hearing other people attempt to pronounce the name. "Flu-ugh" and "Flee-urr" seem to be the common results. Interestingly, many people have trouble just spelling it. I've lost count the number of times I've seen this simple five-letter name reconstructed as "Fluer".
