What goes into creating a name to go by for you?

So im curious after reading a post about ideas for a name change and thinking of one myself so I wondered how does everyone go about picking their names? My name normally comes from some word that sounds sort of edgy or cool and then I need to tone that edge down with something normally a fruit/food Examples: TwistedGrapefruit, FuriousPinapple, TaintedLemon So how about everyone else any interesting steps you use to make your names?
