    Figured we should probably have a thread where people can chime in if they've changed their name on Anime-Planet :)

    • What was your old name?

    • What's your new name?

    • Any fun info as to why you changed your name?

    Old Name: Ratchet573
    New Name: Rotisserie Chicken
    Why: I didn't want a number after my name and a rotisserie chicken was the only thing I could think about when I changed my name.

    God, I wish I'd have thought of that way back when I joined other sites. I still hate that "1990" I'm stuck with other places.

    ^I don't even recall him having a 21 after his sn before...

    Old Name: Pkmnmaster88

    New Name: commonxreaction

    Why? commonxreaction was the handle I had decided on earlier in the year before I joined AP. I used it for a lot of other stuff I was starting to join, including PSN. For whatever reason, when I joined AP I picked Pkmnmaster88, and sort of immediately regretted it. Partially because I abbreviated Pokemon to Pkmn and didn't really like the aesthetic of it. I had always planned to change it, from almost Day 1.

    CMC -> Jamie

    Though that happened before many of the current regulars, I think.

    Interestingly enough I've always assumed it was for 'pacman' even though the C isn't a K and all...

    Old name: Panta

    New name: LadyJam

    Wanted a change of name, Tents calls me Jam, and LadyJam is sort of a euphemism that entertains the small facets of my mind.

    I thought it was Glenda.

    Oh, so that's who you were. I just assumed you were a new user when I came back.

    Don't worry, that's a common reaction. :lenny:

    I thought you were LadyPsychic, this changes my entire outlook on the meaning of your new name...


    I thought you would of known because you were part of the Lottery and suddenly the person running it had a different name?

    Old name: vulpixes

    New name
    : SkyOnAnime

    : I used "vulpixes" originally because it's my favorite Pokemon. But my name is Sky, and I've been incorporating that into pretty much all of my other usernames -- "sky on __." So it was only fitting that this one was SkyOnAnime. I don't know if I like it enough to keep it forever though. I guess I'll see three months from now.

    I'm glad I made this thread as I had no idea that's who you are (I thought you were new)

    Like sothis said, I am glad she made this, I'd have never known.

    Pepperidge Farm Remembers. In some ways it was less letters, but all caps so I am not sure which one zips off a keyboard better.
    I will miss Panta. I guess I like the fact it sounded like a big badass hair band mixed with a refreshing drink.
    But the new name is actually hella catchy. You even have a 'band'. .. sorta.

    Maybe we have a few others who we thought walked off a skybridge years ago, but have been here the whole time.

    By the time I joined that thread, your name was already changed.

    People who change their name are sad.
