How Did You Come Up With Your Read.Cash Username?

Okay, so I know the title may have been a little weird (pardon me), but today I was just looking at some replies in my article when I noticed something that had literally been staring at me for the past few months.

@Leo_kitti's username!

Sure, I'd been seeing it a lot, but for the first time, I actually looked at it. And then thought, "what motivated her to use this username?"

Because yeah, it's pretty unique, and it really gives off this imposing 'statement' vibe as you look at it. Leo_Kitti. And then, of course, I let the wheels in my head roll a bit. A leopard is a big cat, it does belong to the cat family. So what did I think she was trying to pass?

  1. She might be a cat person

  2. She can be fierce as a leopard or cute (as some people say) and gentle as a cat. Or she can be everything in between as well.

As I kept on drafting my hypotheses, of which I was sure about 99.99% wasn't correct, I began to think about other usernames I'd seen. I didn't want to invade anyone's privacy by asking about it, but come on, at least someone else must have asked these questions too.

@Hanzellis this a nickname or your real name? It sounds so damn cool, to be honest; If I ever decided to have a family, I'll def. name my kid that. Makes you sound like an ice princess from a mystical land.

@Eybyoung come on, you should know that your name MUST make it to this list. I know a little about you from your personal posts, ut nothing about this name. Is it an old high school or college nickname? Is it from a mix of old nicknames? Was it your old 2go handle (I know, even I cringe when I remember that app and the crazy usernames).

@wakeupkitty don't act so surprised. Yours was actually the first I thought about back during the Freewriting Contest. Then I saw #KittyWu and then I thought, oh wow, that's a rad name, and she's probably Chinese. Then I found out you stay in the Netherlands and that didn't add up - plus my slow brain finally saw KittyWu was just wakeupkitty ๐Ÿ˜ข. And the name is so unique - is her name kitty and she's motivating herself to wake up and do what she's gotta do? Is there something else? The suspense is killing me!!!

@kat2x what's the deal? Two times the cat person? kat plus two kisses? I don't get ๐Ÿ˜ญ. Please explain.

@Paganprincess well you shouldn't express any surprise to be on this list. You shouldn't at all. Your name sounds really badass, to be honest, I mean, Paganprincess... you definitely do not see something like that every day, not even every blue moon. What's your secret?

Well, my username really doesn't have any story. My real name is Ozioma, which means Good News in my native language, and yeah, the name was supposed to be 'Good News' to me, except that it is a predominantly male name over here.

You can imagine how I felt when I told someone my name and they asked, "isn't that a girl's name? I'm sure you weren't consulted before they gave you that name. Did your Grandma name you? (Yes she did ๐Ÿ˜ญ).

And then guys would slide into my dm on Facebook and Whatsapp and be like 'Hey babe', bruh look at my Profile Pic, I'm a guy! What's wrong with you.

I had to do something, so I settled for Ozzy. Now only my parents and a few coconut heads (who will just not listen) call me Ozioma. I'm known as Ozzy almost everywhere, or Uzi by the guys.

So when I came to read.cash, I intended on using that name again. But it was already in use, or so they told me. I had to add an extra 'y' ๐Ÿ˜ญ, but then most of you still call me Ozzy when you're not tagging me, so mission accomplished.

I haven't seen anyone with that Ozzy username though, and it doesn't show up in the tags. Nice move, Read.Cash, nice move indeed.

So what stories have you all got? Please do tell, so this restless mind can be at peace! ๐Ÿ˜‚ And if I didn't mention your name here, still tell me how you got yours.

@gertu13 yeah you're in this too, what secret do you hide in that name?

I was checking through your articles because I got interested in you after that exchange of comments on kat2x's article. Then I saw this, I'm honestly intrigued about their usernames too and tried to find their answers on the comments section ๐Ÿ˜…

Anyways, hello Ozzyy. I'm @esciisc, a longer version of SCSC, the initials of my real name ๐Ÿ˜ nice to meet you on this platform.

Well, my username is far from my real name. My mother use to call me when she's mad at me before 'Ebyang' its a lame nickname she calls me. Then I got used to it, I just made the spelling, "Eybyoung" because I am feeling young ๐Ÿ˜‚ then I started using it a long time ago, even my Gmail account started with young. I don't know the significance of it but as I said I get used to it and decided it would be my screen name everywhere, so I won't forget it.

๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Awwwww

You are somehow right on the first count. I'm not really into cats, they can be really proud ๐Ÿ˜’ but I loooovvvveeee kittens โค๏ธ. Cute and cuddle little things. (Makes me wonder where the adults get their sassy attitudes from)

On the second count, you're ๐Ÿ’ฏ correct ๐Ÿ˜…. I can be fierce, I am cute(right?๐Ÿ˜‚) Gentle is the first attribute people notice when they meet me.


How I got the nickname?

My guy bestfriend is afraid of cats and hates them so to tease him I gave him the nickname "Kitty" which in time also stuck to me so much so that I can't remember the last time he called me by my actual name.

Leo is my zodiac sign โ™Œ.

So while creating my Instagram account I tried "Kitty" - taken. "Kitti" - taken. "Ki_tty" - taken. "Ki_tti" - taken. "Kitten" - taken. "Cute_kitty" - taken. At this point I was frustrated. It actually took me two days to come up with a nick name. "Leo_kitty" - taken. "Leo_kitti" - free

Finally...!!!!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Now you know the history ๐Ÿ˜

Right now some of my friends are beginning to call me "Leo" ๐Ÿ˜. I likey too๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜


So it's like two cats in one name "Leo_kitti" the first one leo- the lion to scare you off at first but if you get past that (get to know me) then it's all cute, cuddly and gentle๐Ÿ˜‰

I think I wrote several times about the "wakeup" part of my name. A brother said it many times as I asked "but why???" I always want to undeestand why, search(ed) for reasons. He thought I am naiv and should understand, finally understand, peoplecheat on me, lie straight into my face and backstab me (which is proved during my long life). "Come on wake up Kitty,"he always said...actually,it is what I do. I wake up others with my remarks, way of thinking which is not because I am naiv but a fast thinker, someone who always thinks and searches for reasons, ways not that logical to most.

If it comes to familynames, Dutch names, Dutch people.... I doubt there are many. Chinese and the mix of Chinese Indonesian restaurants are normal. At a school you easily find 40 different cultures/foreigners. I guess that's what the Netherlands is. A mix of people since ages, one not allowed to have some culture of its own.

Your username has one of the most compelling backstories to it really; that's nice! You've been through a lot and incorporating it into your username and articles was really bold of you, thanks for sharing!

I always wondered if countries like the Netherlands and Czech republic really have cultures. Perhaps a diverse mix of people has drowned it.

$ 0.00

We have culture but are forbidden to have it. They are fighting December 5th and there are fights since a few years about the word 'christmas' and 'eastern' because lefties/muslims say it hurt their feelings. On the other hand no one seems to care about what hurts my or christians their feelings or pagans their feelings.

I stick to an ugly name I.am not really proud of. No idea what else to use. I guess once used to it it is a part of you,ugly or not.

About the Czech republic I dont know. The Dutch have a huge history and culture. Keep in mind a few stupid farmers made land out of the sea. Farmers and Fishermen (who couldnt swim) built themselves a life and rven New York is Dutch. How many of us can say they did that?
