Can I get a pseudonym for $10,000?

Thanks, Alex.

Okay, so I am going to submit some of my erotica to various magazines and sundry productions. However, I thought it would be better, more practical, and perhaps smarter to do this under a pseudonym. You know, for work purposes and such. Oh, and so when I am rich and famous, famous or rich, hell, I'll settle for somewhat wider known than just by my various friends, co-workers and anonymous sleeping partners, I can say, "Well, see way back when I wrote smut, I mean erotica, and I made a decent living out of it." Or it just might be fun to shock the grandkids.
Oh, who am I kidding. I just thought it would be better than publishing under my own name. Party Girl just seems to, I don't know, Party Girlish.
There is actually a website you can go to to have them generate a name for you. Lame, but I went. After numerous tries this is the best I got: Dark Rose (Hello, cheesy!) and Lee Steele (Again, cheesy cheese nip with some cheese whiz thrown in, cheesy.)
Sure, I'm creative enough to come up with my own, but hey why not let you all help me with this little side project.
So, I am enlisting your help.
Give me your best shot.
Yes, I understand the unleashing of stupid names and comments I am subjecting upon myself, but hey, why not.

I like "The Thumping Vagina."

I'd go with something as normal sounding as possible. In fact, I'd break out most common female names for your year of birth and pick one of those. The more normal your name sounds, the more likely readers will buy that you are actually a girl :) As soon as I see something so over the top it reminds me of a drag queen's name, it makes me suspect that the writer is a guy.

I'd also go with something that has a beat, of two syllables followed by either one syllabyle or three. Those names tend to stick with people.

Having said all that, when in doubt, go with the name of one of your earliest characters.

You know, I'm running totally dry on wise ass humor. Make it a name reminescent of someone's favorite Jewish grandmother like Ida Lipshitz. That ought to get the metal picture juces of your readers flowing.

You need a name with PG as the initials...


Patrica Gregory.

Lauren Delancy

Because it sounds decisively feminine.

You've been commenting on my blogs for months, at least under another pseudonym of mine. And I know based on previous posts that you don't need any help from amateurs like us.

Luna Zext - just cuz it sounds cool to me.

I think you should go with a one word name, like Madonna and Prince. I'm voting for something feminine and sexy sounding like Brianna. But if you insist on a full name I'd say Labia McTwatson. The Thumping Vagina is awfully good to though.

Okay, I actually really like many of these.
Perhaps I need to have a contest of sorts to pick the best one and to show you some of my thoughts.
