Since this keeps popping up on my f-list:

[Error: unknown template qotd]
Most of you will assume that my nickname is Blue because it's my favourite colour. Well, you'd be right, but funnily enough that wasn't the main reason I chose that name.

It mainly comes from when I was a Yu-Gi-Oh! fan and really into the card game (for the record, I was much better at the Pokemon TCG), and my favourite card was, surprise surprise, the Blue-Eyes White Dragon (it's also the origin of my deviantART username). So, when I signed up to my first forum, I picked Blue2393 as my username (it's the card's initials on a phone keypad, in case you were wondering). What I hadn't banked on was the fact that many of the other members never seemed to shorten names, so I was constantly being called the full thing. Which was fine for the most part, except people kept getting it wrong. And being someone who has a bit of a compulsion to correct people, it drove me potty. So, first name-change day the forum had, I asked them to lop the numbers off (no reason was needed since it was my known berserk button).

Now by the time I discovered Livejournal, lots of people knew me as Blue, so I'd already decided to keep "Blue" in my username. Thing is, Blue's a common nickname, so I needed to add something to it, and I sure as hell wasn't going the numbers router again. As it happens, my sister was playing Final Fantasy X around that time, and I'd become rather fascinated by the aeons in the game, and especially Bahamut. I loved the word and thought "hey, that's a combination I wouldn't mind being called." The rest is, well, you get the picture.

The other variation I have is BlueSilver, which is a tribute to my favourite Pokemon game.
