What's In a Name?

Well, I'll tell you . . . if you pop on over to The Debutante Ball.

(Come on. It's Friday. You know by now I spend Fridays at the Ball.)

Here's a teaser:



Uh-huh. Names matter, don't they?

Do you like your name? Does it "fit" you? Or is there a name you think would suit you better?

Personally, I've always been fond of my stripper name. You know how to figure out your stripper name, don't you? You take the name of your first pet and combine with the name of the street you lived on when you were born.

Mine? Sparky West Haven. Has a ring to it, doesn't it? What's yours?

Seriously? What I need is a NON-stripper name. ;)

Happy Friday, darlin'.

Patty Blount said...

OMG. Mine is Fluffy 35.

Mac said...

Oh man! My stripper name would be Prince Edward!

i didn't know that i had one, but it would be ... Lady Dunn !

Sarah Pearson said...

Oh dear, I'm nor sure that a stripper named Amos Nettleton would earn much money.

Tiger Duddington.

Enough said.

I've always loved my stripper name. It's Skipper Lawrence. (It doubles as a recovering-addict child star of the 1950's name. Versatile!)

Diane Henders said...

Oooh, I get to be one of those famous folks with only one name (I grew up on a farm, so no street name.)

"Misty". It has a nice ring to it. Like "Cher" and "Madonna". Right? ...um, right...?

Wow, Blogger is sure messed up today. It put my comment in three times. Must be a government takeover: everything in triplicate.

Oh, boy, my stripper name would be the worst name EVER: Tippy Lodge Farm

Carol Kilgore said...

I'm Kiki Woolworth and I'm heading to the Ball!

Anne Gallagher said...

I'm Taffy Hendricks. Nice to meet you. Hey, I've been looking for another pen name. Guess I just found one.

Sue London said...

Precious Victoria. It definitely brings out my Mae West side...

The road I lived on when I was born, huh? It's called Route 41 -- and also goes by Gap-Newport Pike. Which makes me either:

Frisky Route Forty-one
or
Frisky Gap-Newport

Either way, I don't think it makes me one of those high-priced strippers. Bargain basement, probably.

Smokey Anndale.

At your service.

Patsy said...

My stripper name comes out more like a dominatrix, so I think I'll stick with my real name.

You crack me up!

I've always liked my "real" name - but often folks like to think they're doing me a favour by adding some "fur" to my Jenny.

In last year's challenge I wrote J is for Just Jenny just to clear things up.

Now...as to my stripper name, it's Minky Sophia! I'm thinking I might have done okay with that handle, eh?

Cheers, Jenny @ Pearson Report
