Todays meme is the SL Names Meme by Strawberry Singh. Names can be so hilarious in SL and some are just downright weird. Of course you also get the names that make you wonder why someone would want to walk around all day with that above their head. So the meme instructions in Strawberry’s post were pretty simple; copy the questions and answer them. Ta daaaa.
What’s your SL name?
Arora Zanzibar. No it’s not spelled wrong, it doesn’t need a ‘U’ in it. It can be spelled Arora or Aurora. But it’s MY name so I can spell how I damn want *hmpfs* (Can you tell I get that a lot?)
What made you choose this name?
I like unusual names and when I made this account it was around the time you could sift through last names and pick one then add your first name to it. I liked Zanzibar when I saw it and I wanted to do a sort of ‘A to Z’ type thing. Picking an A name – Arora was just a name that I really liked.
What’s your SL nickname, or what do most people call you? (if applicable)
I get Rors a lot. I changed my plurk name to Rawrs for Halloween a couple of years ago because it was just like Rors and it stuck for quite a while. So it’s generally Rors or Rawrs.
What’s your SL display name? Why do you choose to have one? (if applicable)
Rors. I changed it to Rors because I thought maybe if people read display names instead of SL names they might start spelling my name right. It’s a bit of a pet peeve of mine when people can’t just type your name right when it is right there on the screen in front of them. I understand if you heard the name via voice and didn’t actually see it spelt you might spell it how you think it is, but when it’s right beside my text posts and floating above my head how can you not spell it right?
Do you like your SL name?
If you could change your SL name, what would it be?
I’d probably only change my last name. Like for partnering. But I don’t want to change my name. I like it just the way it is.
What’s the craziest/funniest SL name you’ve ever seen?
Wanna Littlething – I worked with her in my fist SL job and I loved her name. Oh and Needto Tinkel – this was a friends account that I introduced to SL a few years ago. Sadly she doesn’t log in any more =(
What’s the coolest (your favorite) SL name you’ve ever seen?
As above. I know I have seen others over the years and gone OMG or WTF over them at the time because they have been either genius or ridiculous, but that is the one name that always stuck in my memory.
