Where is your nick from?

I love Mortal Kombat ever since I was little, and my favorite character is Scorpion - to be fair, he's everyone's favorite character from MK - so my usernames are all based around him.
 
It's just one of those names that randomly came into my mind one day and I thought "Hey. I should use this somewhere." And voila.

Mine is just a stage name for my art. It's been with me since college and I practically use it for everything.

Nice question! I think mine sounds a bit pretentious, but it wasn't intentional. Basically, I took the names of two ships that I used to like and put them together; this was some five years ago or so. The reason I'm still using this nickname today is that I've been too lazy to try and invent a new one ever since.
 
I was young and wanted a clean simple name. The Weavile line were some of my favorite mons at the time so I suppose that’s why I went with Sneer.

Around the time I started playing on PS (mid-late 2016) I was just about to start studying mathematics at university. Throughout Sixth Form (High School equivalent in the UK) I was obsessed with nation-wide mathematics competitions, along with maths in general and so I'd spend a lot of my spare time after school practicing problems either from previous years or from the Art of Problem Solving website (many thanks to sed idk if you're still working for them or was working for them when I used to use it but it helped me get stronger and I wouldn't have achieved medals without it). My favourite types of problems to solve were those regarding number theory, of which Diophantine equations (named after the Ancient Greek Diophantus) are a part of. Diophantine sounded like a pretty cool name so I went with that.

I wanted to have my IRL name Taiga as my username since that's pretty cool too, but that's taken. Diophantine is a mouthful and most of my friends shorten it to Dio. I've never seen Jojo's Bizzare Adventure but I can't escape the memes/references every time I start speaking to nerds online with this name lol.

everything about this post is a fever dream and I love it
 
Mudkip was my first pokemon, and I wanted a name with it so I did mudskip since mudskippers are a thing, but I recently changed it to not be exclusive to a certain pokemon so it's skip on everything besides smogon, I think it sounds decent

Also I get skipped on a lot of drafts so it works
