As long as it's not offensive or otherwise inappropriate, a user cannot get banned for their username.

Sometimes people like to get rare names to signify a sort of accomplishment, like my account Filesystem.

Once upon a time, CatBlocks were brought into the world of Scratch. They became quite dear to us, and were close to our hearts. But then, an evil kumquat ate them. We will always keep them in our hearts, and we promise to remember them forever.
