Should I Change My Username?

So I've been debating changing my username pretty much since I joined the forum because, let's be honest, a character from a show isn't the most creative, and quite frankly it's difficult to remember and type.

The problem is that I've been on here and posted so much that EVERYONE knows me by this name, and wonder if changing it would confuse the crap out of everyone.....

If I were to change it, I'd change it to "Gidrakos" because I went super-nerd and created my own Latin word - but at least it would be unique to me.




Thoughts?

Don't. My kid speaks fluent Japanese. He knows what it means.

Ok so I just voted no because of your legacy with the user name. Quite honestly, I didn't realize it was a character name until you referenced it (please excuse my ignorance). That said, do what makes you happy. The rest of us will get over it.

I know, but the legacy is what kills it - everyone knows me by this; I just never expected everyone to know me haha.

The new name doesn't seem much easier to type...

I say go with whatever makes you happy and for the argument people know who you are as Byakuya I think people will easily learn the new one if you choose to change.

I was going to vote yes because I'm tired of having to find an old thread to look up how to spell Byakuya whenever I want to tag you in a thread, but then I saw that you want to change it to Gidrakos, which isn't any easier to remember. So I vote change to Fred.

I can remember Fred.
