Hello lovely ladies!
So I've seen a few posts lately asking for help to choose a pin up name, and while this is me basically doing the same, I also thought it might be a good idea to pool together a list of "how to's", you know - what sort of things to consider and what sort of things to outright ignore when someone wants to choose a pin up name.
My most important tip is choose a name that suits you. Make your name unique. This is your chance to pick a name for yourself. Be creative. Choose a name that reflects the person that you are.
My tip would be to choose something that you can introduce yourself as out loud without feeling like an idiot :)
and that when you come up with something you should google it to make sure no one else already has it
As for your name, do you have any ideas that you want to start off with? Exotic/feminine/dark/etc? Or a direction you're thinking of going with like playing off of your own name or so? I know a lot of ladies start with their grandmothers name or great grandmothers name but that doesn't work for everyone.
Well that means I need to change my actual name lol I think my surname is the worst in the world
For my pin up name, I was thinking I might like to incorporate my birth surname (Taylor) and/or perhaps some reference to Canada/being Canadian; but I'm not 100% sure.
I never really knew my grandmothers, one died before I was born, and the other died when I was seven; plus my family aren't much of a "family", family - if that makes sense?
ooh , Toronto Taylor
or Taylor Love
or Samantha Taylor
lots of ways to work with taylor, I don't know a huge lot about Canada though so not a huge lot of help in that respect :/
I like Toronto Taylor personally so it's got my vote :)
As for advice for the name, the tip that worked for me was picking a hobby of yours or the name of something that you like that's sort of pinup related and work that into your name.
I saw that you have a pic of yourself in a Vamp top, how about Taylor Vamp?
OK, so after some looking around and Googling I'm quite liking Taylor Phoenix - phoenix being a play on becoming myself again. Any thoughts?
it sounds great if you ask me :)
i like it!!
