I use the name Ferine Breed in most furry spaces. Cleopatra is just my fursona's name.
"Ferine" originally came from a Tumblr writing tips blog, and it means "feral." I liked the idea of a "feral group," so I just went with synonyms.

I usually use SkylerSaysWhat, TimeItCorrectly, or darts401/darts301/darts101 as usernames because I like to have somewhat funny usernames, at least they were funny at the time to me. there's not really a story behind it

I chose Bluefox Longtail because I'm blue and wanted a furry-y name.

My most common username now is FoxHeartedReaper, because I can relate to foxes, everyone knows about my reaper obsession, and my fursona is a reaper. Other than that I use FoxiRavenheart for obvious reasons, and very occasionally still KuroKitsune.

My username on ChickenSmoothie is ~ Sebastian ~ because my entire profile there has been dedicated to Sebastian Michaelis from the moment I joined (no I'm not obsessed), and I put the ~ thingies there to make it fancy. My username and profile theme has literally been the same since I joined there.

Aaaand my Animal Jam username was WolfieDoggy because I was 8 years old, and I liked wolves and wolfdogs... only I apparently had a very immature way of converting it into a username. xD

That feel when you keep looking at a thread thinking, I've posted here before for sure, I know I have! And then keep passing it on... Only to actually go through it fully and realize you never posted... Woops.

The short cut and simple version of the story is simply that I use TodTheFox because it's the shorthand for Tod The Fox and works better for websites since not allow spaces. TodTheFox obviously refers to the character Tod from the Fox and the Hound. I choose that name for my character after I had a random discussion I had with my family about how I got my name and other names I'd have probably preferred. (Emphasis on random I did not start a conversation just to point out how I don't like my name and would have preferred others, it got that more naturally.) My mom jokingly threw Tod out there when I said I'd have probably preferred another name and it really got me thinking. From there it really just sort of grew on me. After that I made a new character named Tod, he became my new primary Fursona, and now I have the username TodTheFox.

Warning: Really cringy story

So I'd say a few years ago when I was around 11/12 years old I was watching a CoD video (That was my obsession/main time-killer at the time) and I saw a username of somebody in the final killcam called 'C4theWin'. Back then my English was tolerable, and since I didn't really know what C4 was back then I just rolled with it. It was only then that I came up with the brilliant idea of replacing 'Win' in that username with 'Slime' since I played a lot of Minecraft, and Slimes were by far my favorite mob. And so my username 'C4theSlime' was born! It doesn't really reference anything, I just like how it sounds. I have however made a slime wolf sona named Seyfourd, honouring that name! (Sey four d. 'Sey' being how you pronounce C in dutch and Four referencing the 4 in C4.)

shutupavery: based off those vine names that editors had (Like chill out mason or whatever). I just liked it I guess since I sometimes don't know when to stop.
I'm starting to use it on other sites. If it isn't taken already.

Did I never post here? The heck

My original fursona name was Rocky Road, my very first fursona who was an African Wild Dog (I'm actually planning on reviving him). But not under the same name because I believe that I am a much different person than before and that name wouldn't suit my character anymore

Anyways
When I got Shia I didn't know what to name her but I had a shark plushie named Shia, so that's how she came to be

the Shope Papilloma virus is a disease that gives rabbits horn-like tumors.
It was discovered by Richard E. Shope.
My fursona, Shope, is a jackalope, a rabbit with antlers.
Pretty self-explanitory. XD

Axle was a name I've always liked.
It's such a bad*ss name, and it suited my fursona well.
Now for Donny, it was simply because it was meant to be. The name clicked with the character.
