What are the meaning of your names!? (CHR iN UR GAMES, TOO)

#1 Post by azureXtwilight » Fri May 09, 2008 6:34 am

I'll start, based on terminology and blah... blah... blah!!!
Azure means sky blue, or "biru langit", my fave colour
twilight means near evening... or "senja"
So I want to make it like, 'cheerful twilight' and so on!
And you guys....?

"Untrustworthy back-stabbing megalomaniac".

It's the one my parents gave me. ;-)

Mine is from the japanese Japanese word 媛 or 姫, Hime, meaning princess. Though if I write it in Japanese, I write it in katakana - ヒメ - for a couple of reasons. I like the word and princess-ey things (like Princess Maker), so I chose it somewhat quickly when I was thinking of a username. :3

Chrono is the silent protagonist of one of my favourite games, Chrono Trigger, and Luminaire is his most powerful spell. My avatar is from the one and only official artwork showing Chrono casting Luminaire. :)
I released 3 VNs, many moons ago: Elven Relations (IntRenAiMo 2007), When I Rule The World (NaNoRenO 2005), and Cloud Fairy (the Cute Light & Fluffy Project, 2009).
More recently I designed the board game Steam Works (published in 2015), available from a local gaming store near you!

A "sake bento" is a type of Japanese packed lunch that has salmon in it.

When I abbreviate it "Sakebe" then it means a shout or a scream.

I suppose you could also interpret it to be a Japanese packed lunch with rice wine, but that's not the intention.

Yeah, not too exciting, I know.

I strive to become enlightened and in doing so, enlighten others. Hence luminarious, as something that illuminates.

I try not to be too modest in my goals.. :P

I'm hidden and no one expects much of me... I just hope I don't disappoint anyone...
I'd rather fail doing something I love than succeed doing something I hate...

I really don't know, haha. It was just a random sound I decided to use as a username for a while. I guess it's also almost a Japanese name as well (羽留) but it has too many ウ at the end. I don't know, it's one of those, "it seemed like a great idea at the time" things.

Buried beneath the mountains of frost
Years of silent sorrow grim and dark
My winterwings of evil sleep in eternal nights
In deaths cold crypts of snow
The moon chained my return
With the blackstorms I came
And not with the winds

The Northern darkness marches through the coldest night

I can't resist the taste from the winds of the moon
I split my tongue for the taste of these winds
And bathe my eyes in it's grace
Frost and winters returns to my eyes
The call of the wintermoon

Nocturnal clouds blows freely in the distance
In the gray mist of deaths horizon
My winterwings of evil sleeps
In deaths cold crypts of snow
Buried beneath the mountains of frost
Years of silent sorrow grim and dark

Into eternal nights
Hearing the call of the wintermoon.


- Immortal, "Call of the Wintermoon", from their 1992 album "Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism".

"Akemi" is a common Japanese girl's name that I looooove sooo muuuuch. XD There are many meanings for it, depending on which kanji you use to write it. I prefer having mine in hiragana, though~

The -cchi at the end... It's really supposed to be 'Ciao', which can be used interchangeably as 'Hello' and 'Goodbye' in Italian. xD But I like having 'Chi' better because it's much more fun exclaiming 'akemicchi!' than 'Akemi! Ciao!'

I thought my net name meant "Alchemist" in Japanese, but I found out that the spelling was wrong in romanji :P So literally it means "Lotus Sword Style". Literally.

My name comes from the "Counter" moves in several squaresoft rpgs. In final fantasy 7 it was so broken that when you got hit... you attacked back 4 times, casted 4 magical spells and regained the mp you just used to cast.

I also like the parrying moves in fighting games. It's just cool to parry through a really powerful move.
