A Name By Any Other Name

Writers use pen names all the time. But I found out lots of other professions do too; and in my constant search to find myself- and help you find you- I give you the ultimate name list. Thanks to Jenny for finding herself and linking to it.

1. YOUR PORN STAR NAME: (Name of first pet / Street you live on): Moustafa Bill Carrol I hope I'm a guy.

2. YOUR MOVIE STAR NAME: (Name of your favorite snack food / Grandfather's first name): Funyan Basil I love it.

3. YOUR FASHION DESIGNER NAME: (First word you see on your left / Favorite restaurant): Font Johnny Carino Derelict, anyone?

4. EXOTIC FOREIGNER ALIAS: (Favorite Spice / Last Foreign Vacation Spot): Garlic Ireland Sounds more like a cooking show featuring Italian immigrants to Dublin.

5. SOCIALITE ALIAS: (Silliest Childhood Nickname / Town Where You First Partied): Missy Mobin Tahlequah Yes, my mother called me that. Shut up.

6. "FLY GIRL/BOY" ALIAS (a la J. Lo): (First Initial / First Two or Three Letters of your Last Name): R Har At least it's a comedy.

7. ICON ALIAS: (Something Sweet Within Sight / Any Liquid in Your Kitchen): Cappucino Joy True, so true!

8. DETECTIVE ALIAS: (Favorite Baby Animal / Where You Went to High School): Chihuahua Broken Arrow That sounds more like the porn star.

9. BARFLY ALIAS: (Last Snack Food You Ate / Your Favorite Alcoholic Drink): KitKat Champagne Does anyone else think that sounds really good?

10. SOAP OPERA ALIAS: (Middle Name / Street Where You First Lived): Lynette Cleopatra Freaking brilliant.

11. ROCK STAR ALIAS: (Favorite Candy / Last Name Of Favorite Musician): Hershey Turner No way! Sounds real! I'm using it!

12. YOUR STAR WARS NAME: ( First 2 letters of your first name and the last 3 Letters from your last name makes your first name. Take the first 2 letters of your mother's maiden name and the first 3 letters of the city you were born in): Roper Wialb Shoot. I bet you anything I turn out to be an Ewok.

4. Nutmeg Ireland--are we related then?
5. George Bethany--another guy name (my uncle always calls (present tense) me Essa George)
6. V. We--what the little piggy cried all the way home
7. Lindor Maple--new species of decorative tree
