Hey!
So, my name...
Kloe, is my first name (though originally spelled Chloe) and the Kadabra half is because I am an amateur magician :D

Fairly simple and uninteresting.

I took my name, sirius, from the night sky. I didn't know the significance of the star untill after I took it and looked it up.

Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky and it is often known at the 'Dog Star'. The heliacal rising of Sirius marked the flooding of the Nile in Ancient Egypt and the "dog days" of summer for the ancient Greeks. To the Polynesians it marked winter and was an important star for navigation around the Pacific Ocean.

In Chinese astronomy the star is known as the star of the 'celestial wolf'. And many of the indigenous peoples of North America associated Sirius with canines.

The Seri and Tohono O'odham of the southwest note the star as a dog that follows mountain sheep, while the Blackfoot called it 'Dog-face'. The Cherokee paired Sirius with Antares as a dog-star guardian of either end of the 'Path of Souls'. The Pawnee of Nebraska had several associations; the Wolf (Skidi) tribe knew it as the 'Wolf Star', while other branches knew it as the "Coyote Star". Further north, the Alaskan Inuit of the Bering Strait called it 'Moon Dog'.

60 is the year I was born :)

David..because it is my real name!

I used to use fake names all the time for "security reasons". Now I don't care who knows about me and what I'm doing and just use my real name, David, and would only make up a moniker if another David has already taken the name because I don't like the look of David353 lol. For made-up names I don't spend that much time thinking them up. Recently I just use a string of random keystrokes, ie. ja323oifdupao, pafpcq2, c27i2, 2yxn9ay2n. As you can see I don't attach meanings to names. They're just a way to identify the author of the message.

It's the name that I use within the Furry community. The fact that it was available here of all places was just sheer luck. :P (I would have used DreamingOrANightmare if not)

Contrary to popular belief, Submachiner has nothing to do with submachine guns.

I took this name because of a internet game series called Submachine by a Polish flash game developer named Matuesz Skutnik, and fans of the series are referred to as Submachiners.

If you are into point and click, escape the room type games, they are worth checking out.
