Maybe use just part of your name, like Lim Han? That may be even easier to remember. I think it's kind of catchy too. Smile

Lim Han Chung is a terrific name for a performer.
More importantly, it's one that can and will be remembered!

I'm with you on that Peter. I couldn't even begin to count how many badly formed variations on Palazzo I've heard. Me answering the phone at dinner time and hearing: "May I speak with John, Pah, Pah, Plasso, ah, Plazolo?" Then silence. Then I hang up. Smile
PM me if you want to chat sometime.

Hi Lim Han.
Did you eventually find that elusive stage name?
One name I used to use before I became (Tricky Ricky),and I still do for banquets is (Ricki Rickshaw).

Somebody listed Uncle harry's real name as Henri Bouton, he was actually born Henry Boughton. Both sides of the family later changed the spelling to Bouton for reasons unknown. My great grandfather, Harry's uncle, apparently changed it first and spelled all his kids names. People often did that way back when to avoid bankruptcy, but as I recall uncle harry was originally Harry Boughton, then with uncle pete was the Defranchsco brothers, then Harry Bouton, then Fredrick the Great, then finally Blackstone.
I two have undergone many a change in stage name, usually to hide from angry audiences, sometime I've had to change my stage name between tricks Smile It needs to fit your personna and style, as well as be something easy to remember, I have used my real name, and I have used Omyn, which was my maternal grandfather's middle name. If you do a chinese magician act, ur own name is fine.

I think that a stage name is fine but it doesn't necessarily have to be The Amazing ________ or ____________ the Magnificent. I once toyed with the idea of adding an ini or oni to my last name but then I found out that Johnny Thompson already was known as The Great Tomsoni... so that was out... How about dropping my last name and using my middle name... Bill Alexander... is there a magician with that name?

Ha ha!!

You know...I would NEVER call myself "Dougini" for a stage name. When I first came aboard the Café, I had to pick a name to use as an alias. I tried several. I did not want to use my real name, as I've made that mistake before (and paid for it!).

After umpteen tries (and fails), I said, "the heck with it..." and entered "Dougini"...

So...don't hate me for my stupid name! LOL!

Harry Jansen performed as Dante.
I read something years ago suggesting that people were most likely to remember stage names of 5 letters. Looking over the listed stage names of both Magicians and Actors, it appears that that particular bit of advice is balogna. Hmmm, "Baloni's Amazing Mysteries...."

Eddie Izzard does a standup routine that explores that very question. And it's absolutely hilarious!

As you are in Malaysia, I guess you need a name that is also nice in Malay or soemthing that does not require much language skill.

How about Mag-Lite?

Just remember that the suffix "-ini" literally means "like, or resembles".

For example, "Houdini" means "like (Robert) Houdin", who was Houdini's idol.

So "Dougini" up there means "like Doug", which he is, because he IS Doug!

Hi there,

I like your name already! Han Chung Lim sounds good, and rolls off the tongue! Sounds a bit like Sim Sala Bim, but maybe that's just me!

Hope this helps!

Many thanks
