Default Re: Butterfree's Name

Hee, people typically think my real name is Arylett because I specifically made a name for myself on the internet that sounds like an actual name. It's not. :P

But I still hate being called by my real name. In real life or online, because I've gotten far more used to being called Arylett due to being a person with not really any real life friends. I just see my real name as being cold and impersonal, whilst Arylett feels more like me. So I can relate to that.

Although my real name will be changed to a different name in about a year or so's time, so there you go! We can forget that horrid thing ever existed.

You aren't changing your name to Arylett, are you?

That's not exactly what I meant. When people call me Lilypad online, I get uncomfortable, purely because I usually am never referred to by name. When people call me my real name, Lily, it gets me really uncomfortable because my real name is a weird thing to be called online.

I don't have a problem with people calling me "Sean" even though it sounds completely retarded to me, so yeah.
I don't see the problem, the preference for anonymity on the internet is common and safest.

Aside from Facebook where my RL friends and family co-exist with me and on Twitter solely for my interactions with my favorite actors, I never even reveal my true name on the internet. If I am required to use a real name as opposed to a user handle, I use an alias.

Some have a very personal regard of their true identity so the use of it on the internet where one is among strangers can be considered a sacred privilege.
There have in fact, been individuals who have had a strong enough familial-like regard of me to earn the knowledge of my true first name but they are very few.

Especially on the internet, true names can hold a lot of power because they can be the key to the rest of one's identity.

There are also those, like myself who do not like their given names.

Also on a side note, please do not use the term 'retarded' in that context, ironically it as well has a powerful interpretation. It can be considered offensive.

Given that it's been two years since this discussion was happening, and considering the context, I think I'm just going to lock this.
