If the word 'porn' were a bad word we would have edited it away long ago, wouldn't we? Wink Smilie

This thread is just for fun to see what your names would be if you use these methods to create them. Some writers and actors (lets call them that, shall we?) like to give out books under a different name to protect their privacy. You might get crazed fans crowding outside you front door, or people might hate you and want to kill you. Also, if your book doesn't sell at all, that failure wouldn't be connected to you real name. If you read a rotten book by a writer, you probably wouldn't run to buy a new book by the same writer.

J.K Rowling was told not to use her full name because the publisher thought that the boys wouldn't buy a fantasy book by a female writer.

There are many reasons to use a pseudonym. Technically everybody on this site is using one; namely your nicknames. Smile Smilie
Grondy is asking us to edit it though...
He does not. Go read the post one more time. If you absolutely want to use the word porn, then go right ahead. Like I said, if the word itself was bad, we would have edited away long time ago. You do see why talking about porn is not appropriate on a family friendly website?

This is said with a calm, non-lecturing, normal voice btw. In case anyone thought I sounded angry or something. Wink Smilie
Hmm.. Amari has 1776 posts. Quite a special number! Therefore, a post about tea is in order!

Totally unrelated to porn (Yes, really!! Get out of the gutter, it is getting crowded down here! Tongue Smilie ), be careful Eruwen, you make me drool all over you!! In Love Smilie Citrus!! I love lemons! My favourite fruit! An essential ingredience in a good cup of tea, or just to munch on! Sadly (AARGH!!), this time of year, the lemons in the shops are not any good! But I found a promising speciment in a Turkish shop in town wich I am looking very much forward to try. Tongue Smilie

Oh! I forgot my tea!! Got to run! *poff!*
Hi Amari...I appreciate the qualifier that you aren't angry; it was getting hot in the room...you feisty woman you! Smile Smilie I was really half joking with Grondy the first time, and then it all got so serious. Phew! (And I'm aware we all speak different languages and have different writing tones and styles and such...)

Just as an asideI agree we shouldnt talk about porn on the site (the visual representations), and I do know the many ways a pseudonym is used, but Connovar specifically asked about porn names. Of course, he could have been doing it just to see where it would goshame on Connovar, for shame!

As for you Grevif you drool on me, you have to pay the dry cleaning bill. Wink Smilie
*looks in purce* What does dry cleaning cost, anyway? Big Smile Smilie

It's hard enough for me to hold back on religion and politics, especially being from San Francisco!

Interesting! What is up with San Francisco? Are they particularly interested in religion and politics?
Or is it the "free spiritedness" of the Californians you are referring to?
Us Foreigners from the Abroad can be a bit in the dark when it comes to stuff like that! Big Smile Smilie Ooh! And while I'm at it: What's up with New Jersey? Elk Grinning Smilie

PS. I think Connovar did what we all should do (a bit more often); read the whole thread before posting. The term "porn name" came up earlier, but wasn't explained. You are just becoming paranoid from Amaris and Vees continuous plotting! Elf Winking Smilie
The free spiritness in California is so high, that the number of daily exorcisms keeps on increasing.

New Jersey? Isn't that the new volcanic island which rose out of the sea near Jersey (one of the Chunnel Islands) ?

Well you can't argue with that logic! Good thing you were quick and managed to post before I posted post number 1777! That would have been tragic!
Super Scared Smilie

Scared you, didn't I? Moahahahaaa! Wink Smilie This is a hard medium, you can add a smiley for every third word and still someone would take it the wrong way, and my msg was bound to be misunderstood unless I added that last part. Tongue Smilie I thought you deserved a proper explanation (whether I managed to give it or not, well... I can hope). And if you were half joking, you were half serious too. Wink Smilie

Plotting, what plotting? There's no plotting. Don't know what you are talking about. Tralla-la-la-laa... Angel Smilie

No seriously! I've often seen these two females whispering in each other's ears and glancing and making nods at each other. Something is definitely afoot! We have to take em both and interrogate em one by one! We ought to know what is going on! Its our right by birth! Its our Right to Knowledge!
We.. are talking about Christmas presents. Mhm. Yep.

How about Star Wars names?
1)You get the first 3 letters of your surname and the first 3 of your first name
-That make your first name

2) The first 3 letters of your mothers maden name and the first 3 letters of the city/town you where born in
-That makes your second name

Which makes me Rafvib Furle. Tongue Smilie

I deny all accusations of doing it for my enjoyment! I simply asked in my innocence for the definition in the hopes of expanding my knowledge! My reward was 'shame on connovar, for shame'. I think i need a tissue Sad Smilie
No, no shame on Connovar. Yey! to Connovar. Becuase like Grev said.

Hang on a sec.... What was this thread about?
Well if you had read the beginning of the thead, like Connovar did. *hehehe* Just teasing. Wink Smilie

To refresh everybodys memory (including mine):
Quote:
You take the name of your first pet as your fist name, and the street name of where you first lived as your second. A variation on this is to use your first pet as a forename, and your mother's maiden name as your surname.
Mine would me Snitter Mountain. Puppy Smilie
Man, I get lost in Disneyland for a few days and get to come back to so many responses! It's like getting lots of mail all at onceSmile Smilie. Star Wars name...I like that! Mine would be Pluana Frapho. haha!
Grev...you had it exactly right, I was referring to the free-spiritness of California, and actually yes to the interest in politics as well, San Francisco has a rather large background in protests (e.g. hippies).

Ah-ha! The famous feigned innocence. That halo is held up by something...horns perhaps?! Wink Smilie
Spike ousta?? Big Smile Smilie thats just weird hmmm spike was not MY dog so
Khi 109??? or maybe
Starry moon ousta heh heh cool
My star wars name would be: Chrkey Kiysan
Interesting.
Well, going by the pet name/street name guidelines of this thread, my name comes out to be something quite male and also something that sounds like a bad detective's name from a 1980's B-movie:

Ranger Wesley!!!!!
Owwwww I like yours!!! Your pet has the name Ranger? How cool is that!

Mick Zweers, that would be the name for me. But I do sign my stories with Rhapsody Wink Smilie
I would be Akeila Westhampton or Sissy Westhampton they were both around when I was born and with my mom's maiden name it would be Akeila Cook or Sissy Cook. (now the last name is house. stuck between a rock and a hard place. Sad Smilie )

Star Wars name is Housea Coofal Big Laugh Smilie
Yes I am serious
Belle Vandyke, at your service.

Sounds to me I should be playing lead lady to Errol Flynn or Rudolph Valentino (old, old film stars for those who are asking "Who the hell are they?" And before anyone says anything, I don't remember them either! But I have heard about them.)

Wiggle Smilie
Moona Kings

Wolf Smilie <---Moona, he's such a little coydog!
Moona Kings...that's cute...I like yours as well, Vee
Molly Bushnell for the street
Molly Scordato for mother's maiden name
I might just be a little paranoid but a lot of banks etc ask for mother's maiden name as a security check, as if it is something secret and known only to you. For that reason I am loathe to publicly announce my mother's maiden name.

(I wonder how many people will edit their posts now?)
Either Ben St. Benedict OR Kaninchen St. Benedict. You see, we changed our mind about the rabbit's name. I'd rather be the German name for bunny than a MALE name, being a female dwarf. So my name is... *drum roll*
Kaninchen St. Benedict. (What a WEIRD name)
I did it again - started another thread when there was one running - sorry Dunce Smilie

My name is Pepsi Sunrise

Pepsi is my cat
Sunrise is my Avenue

Better than Charlie Taylor (Charlie was my goldfish when I lived at home and my Avenue was Taylor. Pepsi Sunrise sounds more fun.

Although - my name is Marion Morrison - that was John Wayne's name so at least a small claim to fame Wiggle Smilie
Don't worry about it, MM. Can I call you MM? You would have to be psycic to know that the game had been posted before under this title. I just remember these threads because they have no use in real life, I never remember anything useful. Merry Christmas Smilie

Awww, a cat named Pepsi. Brings me back. There was a big male cat hanging around our house when I was little. I thought it belonged to a kid nearby, and their cat was named Pepsi, so I called that cat Pepsi.

I suppose I'd be Blackie Churchill. Sounds interesting!
I've found out you can use your mother's maiden name. Well, none of you actually know my REAL name or my bank or anything, and they never ask a KID their mother's maiden name (I never go to the bank in the first place - my mother banks my money), so...

Ben King. (Got bored of Kaninchen. Let's be different! And besides, Ben was the FIRST name given.)
And if you swap the names around, I'm a ruling monarch!!! 'Cept the whole gender thing is a problem, though. Who'd believe I"M a king? (Plastic surgery, here I come...)
First Pet/Street name: Bernie Windward
Current: Buttercup Sparrow
Pet/Maiden: Bernie Hodkiewicz
Star Wars: Parand Hodapp
Whoa...those are wierd names, no? Angel Smilie Paranoid Smilie Very Evil Smilie

Why would you want to change your gender? You're a girl! And girls rock! Not that guys don't rock either...um...I'm going to go shave my neighbor's cat...*runs as fast as legs can go*
Endow Arianna.

It just sounds pretty.
