Sydeon, real name Sydney, is a 23-year-old streamer who has experienced a huge spike in popularity on Twitch, along with her stunning cosplays that have drawn in a whole host of new fans. But who exactly is this streamer on the rise?
The past year has been a lucrative one for streamers of every category, with Minecraft creators like Dream experiencing unprecedented stats, the Among Us craze launching Corpse Husband to internet fame, and VR streamers such CodeMiko going viral on Twitch.
One such creator to experience a steep rise in popularity on Twitch in particular is Sydeon. The 23-year-old streamer was originally from Seattle but currently lives in LA, pursuing streaming full-time, also having done a variety of modeling work.
The streamer currently has just under 150,000 followers on Twitch, with a further 80,000 on her main Instagram account where she posts a range of pictures from her daily life, along with her popular cosplays. She also often collaborates with her friends and roommates QuarterJade and iGumdrop.
What does the name ‘Sydeon’ mean?
Originally Sydney’s online alias was the name Neytiri from Disney’s Avatar movie, but she revealed on Twitter that she was finding it hard to brand around that name and found herself competing with search results relating to the film, so opted for a name change back in November 2020.
Why did I change my name? Because the name Neytiri came from Disney’s Avatar movie. I find it hard to brand around that and I compete with Avatar in search engines. And, let’s be honest, I’m losing that competition 😂 the name also doesn’t feel like mine, because it isn’t!
