I can't remember if I posted on this already or not! And I'm not about to search through 140+ pages of replies soooo...
Katsuni: Originally was Mist Katsune; blend between kitsune mythology and egyptian mythology (cat worship wewts). Like mythology alot and wanted something a bit unique, it didn't sound quite right though. After a few months decided "katsuni" sounded better than "katsune". Occasionally have to go into hiding, via name change, to escape peoples who stalk me or are just creepy >.> When I made the change from mist katsune, it changed to Shadow Katsuni, shadow relating to the hiding part.
These days it's just shortened to Katsuni. Since I'm pretty much the only one using the name, it's never taken in games or whotever with name restrictions, and people can identify me quickly with it.
Of course semi recently, a porn star who had been going by katsumi got sued and was forced to change her name... to katsuni. I have proof I had the name first, but I'm not going to sue her over it; she already went thorugh that foolishness once. If there can be 500,000 people named bob, or tom, or susan, or patrick, or amy, or mary, or john... I'm sure the world can survive there being a whole two katsuni's out there.
Though it does cause awkward moments sometimes when people think I named myself after her ;_;
It doesn't matter if they're right. If they can't proove they're right, then they're wrong. No matter how right they may be.
