Over the years I have made mental note of really (IMHO)bad stage names for magi. I have seen Mark Magic, Mr. E, Danny Dazzle (seriously), and since this is the bizarre forum...Derek Dark.
Now, alls fair in love, war and show biz but this is almost the equivilant to magic of 'stripper names'. Stage names are great and can be useful for lots and lots of reasons, but if you must pick one please think twice about the double meanings and the alliterations.

There was only ONE Sigmund Fraud and that was the late Terry Nosek. Be creative and think of one of your own.

The Vampire Destiny as stage and business names - they remember it.

I would use my real surname but so many people have difficulty remembering, spelling and pronouncing Jones.

I mean to update my avatar to the vampire look but I'm busy enough keeping up with the Tibetans frequent changes.

I think Eiko Eiko Exu sounds too much like Isso Isso Liwok.

I've been torn on the subject.

Having the last name Palmer and doing magic can really go either way. Smile

Do a search on The Café. You will find many threads about him. We need to know our roots.

Mind if I take a personal moment about my stage name and its story?

C. H. Mara is my stage name derived after years of thought, testing and research - and a funny story.

When my grandfather arrived at Ellis Island in 1906, listed as a Hungarian from his town - no one could properly pronounce the name he gave - Chmara as they would have to clear their throat to say the first three letters properly (as he and his kamushkas) did. But since he was able to write CHMARA they used it.

(BTW - in 1907 when his wife and one child arrived from the same town they were listed as Austrian-Polish - then another few years later when a brother from the same town he was "Russian-Ukranian." This leads me to believe the town was invaded one time or another by every European nation except maybe Monaco.)

BUT, I DIGRESS - I wanted to honor my forebearers with my stage name -- including one famed silent-early sound movie star in the family. But three consanants together starting a name confuses most Americans.

Over the years I had learned a lot about Mara - as in Mara-nara (an Italian sauce) as in O'Mara (Irish), Mara a russian name, Mara also sounds Asian. However it was when I discovered that MARA was the demon who tempted Siddhartha -- it was a done deal for me. I split my stage name to C. H. MARA. Small enough for a marque,

The simple addition of my Universal Life Church Credentials has added DD, MPM to the name as titles - which annoys the heck out of my eldest son who is finishing a real PhD in Envrionmental Geography.

What do people working with me who do not know this? "C. H."

I have tried to come up with names to fill those initials out -- but have not found things as unpronounceable as I would like that also cannot be shortened to an easy nickname. I have played with Hieronomus for the H -- and Chyort for the first, but Chyort is not only easily pronouncable but has another meaning besides "devil" which is slippery brown and smelly if you know the common slang.

So - if anyone would like to help me buy a "C" with a good name with arcane meaningfullness and good unprounouncability -- let me know, please.
