My nickname is Jay. Currently, I am studying in the UK. Therefore I am Jay, in the UK. After I go back to Canada, it'll no longer be relevant, but oh well.

The story behind my name:

It was the first time my boyfriend came over my house, probably 2 weeks after we got together. (we're going on 5 months now, wow this was a while ago!) Anyway, we were laying on my bed kissing and I happened to turn on my red tube light which forms the word "love". Just to set the mood. It makes the entire room glow red.

He commented that he liked the light because it felt like being in a movie and he also said I looked hotter under it lol. Turns out, so did he

So that is where the "Of Red" part comes from.

As for "Radiance", the first song we started writing lyrics to each other from was AFI's "This Celluloid Dream" our fave part of the song was "Bathed in your radiance, I melt."

And voila, Of Red Radiance was born

Well, I'm a HUGE fan of Amy Brown's Faery art. So, that is where my handle came from. Nothing huge with a nice long story-I just enjoy fantasy art with faeries and dragons and mermaids...cool stuff if you ask me

This nickname started from Lenny (I'm a girl bt I still spell it with a Y. SO THERE! ) Lenny Quites was a fake name I used whenever I needed one like in a prank or just to use as a pen name. Then I just started using that one every day because I hate my real name and I plan on changing it. My parents gave me a name that sounded like the name of some ancient movie star hoping some talent would rub off or something except mine sounded like the cheap imitation. It's like trying to make your kid the next Brad Pitt by naming him Brad Pott. I use lizenny here because I thought Lenny was too plain so I jazzed it up a bit and here it is.

Well, I was in a ska-core band for a while (which is a style of music...kinda like ska but sometimes more "punk" or "hardcore" or "progressive and exprimental" or whatever musical tag you want to put on it. Some of my favorite ska-core bands are Hot Stove Jimmy and the Blue Meanies...) although, just recently, we broke up...

I'm also from the Chicago suburbs and am hella-proud to be from here (both the Chicago area and the suburbs...)...hence, the name...

My username is my real name

Well, not really, but it might as well be. I never cared for my legal name, so I came up with a new name, Felix Lockhart, and that's how most everyone knows me (except family and co-workers, which is for the best). I may get a legal name change, because the two different names get confusing sometimes, but it's also nice to have a bit of a division between my "controversial" life (political columnist, author, very outspoken queer) and my "mundane" life (computer technician in an ultra-conservative small town).

Okay, well once I got into college I got two new friends well after a few months.

Their names were Alexis and Alexandra....
My full name is Alexandria....

So, in our large group of friends I soon met Alexis went by Lexi, Alexandra went by Alex, and I went by Al. Thing is I was getting tired of being called Al, but the name stuck with me cause if they all started calling me Alex I would get confused with the other Alex and if anyone called me Lex I'd hit them. So Al it was... It wasn't until another person (boy this time) joined are large group of college friends, his name is Alexander (CRAZY AIN'T IT?!) and so we were just all mad! But he went by the name Nipples (don't ask why) and eventually Alex started teasing me and started calling me Alamus. Like a sort of name of power or something just like a Roman or something. And from there she would just call me Alimi (as in two of me... I don't know what she's refering too when she calls me that though.) But yeah, Alamus... it stuck. People still call me AL, but I like Alamus better. I like it. hehe.

Its kinda weird how my screen name originated.

My sn for everything used to be Sleepyhead. But once I started college, I never slept anymore so I thought I should changed it.

There for I got Brite Crayon83.

I am always a happy, energenic, and fun person, and ppl say that I am a 'bright' person. So thats where the Brite came from. Crayon is because I like to color. Im 21 but I still color ALL of the time. And 83 is the yr I was born in. I put them all together and they sound good together!

Well. Squishay comes from Squishy, which comes from Finding Nemo..(You know, the little jellyfish..) The extra "a" is from my cousin Alex, being dumb and pronoucing everything with an extra "ay" at the end. It just sort of stuck. Ska comes from me not wanting to be classified as "punk" so everyone started calling me Ska..which is totally different but yeah.. and 77 comes from, well. That's my favorite number. Interesting huh? -Not. lol.

My name is Danielle and Dani is a usual nickname, but I had gotten into a fight one day and one of my friends came up with Dani Rage. It's stuck since then.

im not sure but i think my screen name came from an argument me and my sister once had. she said i was guilty and i replied was about as guilty as an angel, hence guiltyangel. the 210 bit came around just because i needed to add a number on the end because there was already a guiltyangel email address for someone else.

as for what some of my friends call me. they call me bob. but my real name is emma and one day someone just called me emzi bob and it eventually got shortened to bob and well. there we have it

It all started in GSA--- our advisor was going to post reminders on the door, and she asked if anyone wanted code names for the sake of privacy. No one cared about privacy, but the code names sounded so fun! She gave everyone random names and mine was "Sunshine," which everyone seemed to agree fit. And I've been using that ever since.
Then, in Spanish, we needed Spanish names, so I asked for something that meant Sunshine. Solecita actually literally translates to something like "little female sun".
The 58 is a random number that happens to be my favorite, just because it's all mine. No competition, like 16 or 7.

I've always loved fruity stuff.
Fruit, fruit drinks, synthetic fruit flavoring, smoothies, etc.
Okay, so I really hate bannanas, and I'm not too fond of a few others, I lovelovelove fruit.
Well, last year, I drank fruit juice almost every day of the year during lunch, and soon one of my friends was calling me "that crazy juice lady". We laughed, and it turned into a nickname, Juice. So I use it as an internet psuedonym, and as Juice was already taken, and I love oranges, Orange Juice it is.

I've also recently become interested in the furry fandom, and Juice the white donkey is my "fursona" so to speak.

B-Stands for the first letter of my mema's name.
E-Stands for the first letter of my mema's middle name.
B-Stands for the first letter of my mema's last name.
S-Stands for the first letter of my mema's madien name.
She passed away in 1999. I was her only grandchild, and was VERY close to her my whole life. She helped raised and I considered her my best friend. A lot of the really embarrassing things that happened to me my first two years in high school I told her, nobody else, just her. She was my ANGEL. Anytime I can I use bebsangel, in memory of mema.

Well, I've got a couple of nicknames, but they're not very unusual. Daria, of course, because my friends thought I acted like the cartoon character(the 319 is March 19, the date I registered my first screenname), and Bunny, because of a pink fuzzy jacket I owned. My friend Matt thought the zipper pull looked like a little pink bunny tail, so he called me "lilpinkbunny" and it stuck. Later, one of my professors shortened it to Bunny. That one REALLY stuck. Barely anyone knows my real name now.

I've also got a really old one from a church group I used to hang out with. Apparently, the guys thought I was sweet, but sulky, so they called me Damned Angel, or DA. I twisted it around and made it Angel Of Darkness around fall of '99, when I got my own website
