Social Where is your nick from?

I use nicknames online to express what I like the most or show a specific side of myself. I used to have a different name in this site but visiting a Japan-themed garden during the toughest year of my life and seeing a group of lotus flowers floating despite a heavy rain gave me some inspirations. Some say this name is 'edgy' and I can see where they are coming from but it still has some charm for me.
 
For now Im patboiii. My name is Patrick and I needed something for Twitter thus I thought what I could do with my name. I came up with patboy cz I was looking at gender selection. When i was looking at my name I recalled that one guy who screamed: "yeah boiiii!!!" For like a minute or so. So I typed multiple i's.

I am going to change it to PDB cz I always wanted a 3 lettered Name especially cz of BKC, CTC, ABR etc. I just picked the letter P and went through the whole alphabet to look out for good sounding letters. For now it has no meaning tho. (If someone got an Idea let me know)

- My past self, circa 2020

So nothing really special, it's a cool nickname drawn from a game I play.

As for my old nickname, my 2018 form really liked Mega Steelix apparently so everything else ['Prism' mainly, the 'GX' is for show] spells itself out. Mega Steelix is still my spirit animal to this day
 
Red Vox is the name of my favorite band, but my username on just about everything else (Impcent) is a combination of Vincent (my name lol) and imp (my entire online presence has revolved around imps for years)

Funnily enough, I also have the same first name as the lead singer/guitarist/frontman of Red Vox. So it all comes together in the end.
 
My baseball coach from when I was younger used to call me fancy pants because I always wore these bright colored socks (despite the nickname having pants lmao) and it kinda stuck with me (when I used to play mc my name was FancyPants1) i thought fancypants was a little embarrassing so I changed it to just fancy (I can imagine myself being called fancy) and still kept the 1 at the end because why not :) (fancy is also my smashtag for my schools my esports team)

(oh and I like making balls to the wall plays in Pokémon and smash, and when they land damn they look fancy)
