Now I have a question regarding name etiquette. I have just started Roller Derby and have been trying to come up with a name that will work there as well as transfer over into the PinUp world. I finally came up with one that is my absolute favourite which is not already used by another derby player. I thought I was all set but decided to do a quick search of the name on the internet to see what comes up. There is a very prominent burlesque dancer and pinup model in San Diego and Chicago that goes by exactly the same name, same spelling and everything. I'm in Far North Queensland, Australia. The name would primarily be for roller derby and sites like these. Am I also to also use that name if I'm in a different country? Many thanks.
When you mentioned telling people to think of the sherry liquor in regards to your name, I couldn't help but think of one of my favorite drinks. And I honestly think it's a cute stage/performance name. Sherri Splash
But that could just be me though lol. My friends essentially picked mine for me. Korynn LeAnne is my full first and middle name, and a girl I've known for years just shortened the two and slapped on a "Miss".
Do we have to earn our pin up name or is this something that we decide on our own? In the derby world we have to earn it but it seems like we make ours up in the pin up world. I guess I should start to think of mine! Oh the possibilities..... :)
My name is Cindy Rae. I got my middle name from a character that Susan Hayward played in the 1944 movie BACKSTREET, and she signed her name RAE. Seemed only fitting that now after 45 years of hating my middle name, that I embrace it with this culture i have grown to love. And of course I took on VinTageous for my love of vintage things. My husband calls me kitten so I was going to go with Kitty Rae which i thought was absolutely adorable, until I googled it (something everyone should do when choosing a name) and I discovered its a porn star! oops. lol So Rae it is!! I have dresses for sale on depop under @rae4
