I think the most common answer would be: simplicity. Simple or common names are highly desired by users because that's what they refer to themselves as, like dave or alice or babycakes.

Simple names are nice. I also like seeing creative names without numbers or symbols. Anything with the words "demon, angel, neko, or chan" turns me off slightly.

Almost any username involving the letter x, underscores, or anime references annoys me. If the person's username reflects the avatar as a cosplay, that's fine by me. But most usernames with anime annoy me. Plus, if a name just looks weird, I dislike it. emotion_yatta
Here is an example of my nightmare username:

I usually like two worded ones. They're usually the most easily remembered for me. I dislike toilet humored ones.

As long as it isn't spammy or full of numbers.

I like ones that conjure up a mental image (not the sick sexual ones) like "Glass Carousel" (who posted earlier) is such a pretty picture in my mind. :> Names like that are desirable to me.

Ones that fit really well with the design of the avatar are really awesome too, whether it's a realistic first and last name or just words that reflect the theme, it's good when the avatar and the name complement each other.

I try to keep a general theme that somewhat suits my usernames (e.g. this one I keep to slightly darker, bloodier themes). :] I like to design characters, when I make an avatar i'm imagining how the character would act.. backstory.. etc. It's madness.

My own accounts are for the most part character names. This one's a pet-name.

I do have exceptions to the rule, such as one of my mules, 'inexplicable hat'.

I feel like the lower-case adds to the image of a hat that simply appears in an ostensibly inconvenient and unexplainable place.
