ROT23 makes it xbojx which is too similar to xbox to be a coincidence
Of course the hint was that the M in aerma is the 13th letter of the alfabet and normally you use ROT13 not ROT23. But the M in ROT23 becomes a J which is the 10th letter of the alfabet and 10+13=23 so it all makes sense!

Aerma - it's secret
You are secretly a football fan but you once tried to register yourself as Arema, your favourite team. This username was taken so you went with Aerma, as this implies you like air and hides your love for football.
Guys, we can go home now. I found the solution

Good guess! Too bad I don't like football, secretly or otherwise :)

abunickabhi
abunickabhi is the name given by my friend in 8th grade.

He wanted to give a name that sounded non-gamer's name,
had some lameness in it.

and fun to pronounce.

So, abunickabhi has been sticking around in my online imprint for 11 years now, yay!

A Cookie Factory
I did not name myself this because I like Oreos. In fact, I’m rather indifferent about them. I shall explain.

So, back in elementary school, I had two friends that I rode with on the bus. One time we were talking, and they caught a whiff of my breath. Evidently, it smelled very bad as they reeled back in disgust and exclaimed, “Ugh, dude, what did you eat?!” (I wasn’t very effective at brushing my teeth back then)

I told them that I had cereal, but either they misheard me or they were just playing with me, because they thought I said Oreos. So, they started calling me Oreoman and claimed I ate a whole pack of those cookies every day for breakfast throughout the rest of the year. Back then this nickname really annoyed me, but now it’s just a fun memory of the past that I decided to incorporate into this forum name of mine.

To this day, I still have no clue whether they really misheard me or if they were just poking fun (it was probably both now that I think about it).
