Wow, there are some interesting reasons here! The reason my nickname is what it is, is because I went through a time where I was fascinated with Japanese Culture/Language. So, I was thinking of cool names to make that would represent the Japanese Language but at the same time, it had to be dark. So... KuroRyuu = Shadow (Black) Dragon. Why would I want it to be dark? Just look at the picture below thanks to FireG...

From all i know; 黒 (kuro) solely translate as Black as the color itself and not shadow.That would be 影 (Kage)

As such,shadow dragon would be written 龍 の 影 (Ryū no kage,"no" being used to support an adjective in a sentence.)


Ps:This is all conjectural,as i do not know japanese yet,i only started learning different grammatical rules and little vocabulary.So i could be wrong,but i don't think i am. :P

Thanks KillMachine35! I was not sure myself either. You are probably right with my poor knowledge of Japanese. :D

Do not get me wrong,it is not a bad name you bestowed yourself.

On second note i think it is best to change my profile name to Absol.
This will avoid confusion for some.
Also,i bear this name (KillMachine35) from the day i was 10,when making my first xbox 360 gamertag.
I would like to try to put this time in the past,for I obviously am no longer the kid I was back then.

If it bothers any of you,you might still adress to me as such,but I've come to prefer Absol.

My new nick comes from a joke that was made in breaking bad by lydia- she's at the table discussing how the meth is doing at the moment in the czech republic, and when questioned on the purity, she claims 'she's already czeched' making a pun.

+ it's my name on other things.

My name sgt-ryan originated back a long time ago in 2005. My dad bought Call of Duty 2 and for our profile names his was deanodeath then I wanted a profile too and he came up with a name for my profile which was sgt-ryan and ever since I have been using the name for mostly everything. I think he came up with the name because he watched saving private ryan which is his favorite movie of all time and that's how he came up with my name :)
