Listen. I wouldn't worry about that.
My username is something I came up with in high school; by analogy with nitrite, chlorite, etc., I could reasonably say that this is the Kryptonite ion. If there is
a method for naming hypothetical ions, this is probably wrong (Maybe KrO-1
since it's one less than the maximum number of oxygen atoms?) but I don't really care too much.
Another username I use often is probably even nerdier. I use "Malkarauko" or some form thereof because a) there are two elvish words for power, "vala" meaning authority and "malka" meaning strength or force, and b) the word for Balrog, translated as "demon of might," is "valarauko." This just seemed logical. It took me a while to figure out the spelling, so several of my usernames that are this but with mistakes added.
