User name meme

Because slidellra waved her hands in the air.

Post the explanation of where your user name came from.


"Keera" was the name of the first role-playing character I got really, really into. All the way into her head, responding out of her character rather than my own. She was a rather feral and dangerous sort, lots of fun.

So, when the opportunity came to take on a public persona, I thought of Keera. "Keera" was taken in yahoo mail, but it suggested adding on your state's abbreviation. I live in Washington, so that made "keerawa". I realized that "wa" would make the name the object of a sentence in Japanese. I make it a point to be an active participant in my own life, the object rather than the subject of events. Plus, I liked the way it sounded.

So it worked out nicely.

I love my mighty handwaving powers.

That's really a pretty great name and name-explanation, especially with the excellent way "wa" worked out for you. So handy you weren't living in Florida or some such.

It's a good name - good solid reason for a name.

Mine was mostly "it sounded kinda funny during one very silly chat night". Less impressive and meaningful.
