Or... did you ever want to be named something more glamorous but was stuck with a traditional name like Barbara or Gail? Not that these are bad names, but sometimes your given name doesn't match your true personality.
Tonights dinner conversation centered around this topic. Big Sister Susan commented how she didn't care for the term 'Big Sister' on my blog
Good point. Young modern women are named Brittney, Savannah and Anastasia - and women in their 50's + are named Julia, Debbie, Sharon and Gloria. Unless you're one of the lucky ones - your name dates you before anyone has the chance to ever meet you.
Bloggers have an opportunity to create a new persona with the click of thier mouse. They change their name to protect their privacy or maybe to embellish a blog theme (think 'Helga' - which is a fabulous name btw and I was drawn to the blog because I thought she was a giant German woman). But what about your average non-bloggers? Is it OK to come up with a stage name? I don't see why DRAG QUEENS get to have all of the fun. Right?
|Such a dramatic stage name.....|
Big Sister Susan gravitated to the stage name RAVEN (suggested by BF Gary). Raven is a brilliant suggestion since she's darker complexion than I, and is always wearing black with a touch of blue. I think this new reference suits her and her eyes perked up at the idea of something new. Hmmm, I think I might be on to something.
|The blunt bangs and bold lipstick also seems very 'Raven' to me. This might be a fun look for her to gravitate towards.|
So the question is..... if you could have a stage name - what would it be? If you do have a stage name - does that mean you change your persona to match it -or is the stage name simply enhancing what is already there? If you call your stage name a NICKNAME - is that more socially acceptable?
I've always wanted to be called Kitten-Kat or some over the top name like Phedora. I don't need it now, but it might be something to look forward to when I hit 50 and Michelle is a name that dates me (and Kitten-Kat somehow will seem like an age appropriate and professional name). Ha, I'm cracking myself up now.
