Sparkfriends, help me create a pseudonym!

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Tonight was the first of 2 classes about how to find a literary agent. After the class I talked to the teacher (an agent, unfortunately not for my preferred genre) about my want to have a pseudonym to be published. After talking with her, it seems it's a good idea to come up with a name now and start posting online with that name to start establishing it. Unfortunately, I'm not really sure about a name to use. I'm hoping my sparkfriends will help, as several of you know me pretty well.

I'm looking for ideas - I need a first name and a last name. I don't have many parameters, just nothing vulgar (of course), I like unique, should be female, and I'd prefer a name that is somewhat caucasian-sounding (to match with the writing I"m doing and my own demographic) or race ambiguous. Feel free to submit several ideas if you have them.

Thanks, sparkfriends!

    It's not an easy task to choose a name because only you know which names you would be drawn to the most. Of course, if you already knew which name to pick, you wouldn't need help. All we can do is try, right? :)

    Edana means "Born with fire." It's an Irish name.
    Kenna is an English name with basically the same meaning.

    I don't know about last names. That a tough one.

    I thought first names with that meaning would be a good fit because you have to have a fire within to figure out what's wrong and to fight to get well as you are doing.

    Those names sound unique and feminine to me but they may not resonate with you. I don't know if they are particularly Caucasian sounding. I don't think you necessarily need a race ambiguous sounding name. If you have interesting material or at the very least, useful information, people will read it. I think most people are drawn more to titles than they are names.

    I don't know about last names.

    The first one to come to mind is "Adrienne Boxer." Hmm, have to keep working on it. -- Lou

    Yeah, that's a tough one. I like what J.K. Rowling did. Her name is just Jo but J.K. is classic, simple, and gender-neutral. emoticon

    I don't have any ideas, but I found some tips online that might be fun to try out.
