    Pen Name

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Leaka, Dec 30, 2007.

    Do you use a pen name?
    If so what is it?
    Mines a little embarrassing since I'm a dude, but the names sounds better then Sir Moon.
    Its Madam Moon.
    Its sound so much better then Sir Moon or Lord Moon.

    I love pen names! I still can't think up one for myself. It's extremely hard...for me.

    Even if I'm not a Madam.

    Father you aren't crying about my name. Is this the way you want to raise us children and traumatize us.

    And you weren't joking.

    I'll find a better name later. I want Moon in my Pen name though and I don't know what rings with Moon.

    No I have a better one.
    My Pen name will be La Moon.

    I don't know I'm just being ridiculous now.

    I don't really have a pen name. I'd rather use my actual name, but if I had to use a new name it would probably be Sir Ender.

    That would be cool.
    Then people would question your name on how it was suppose to sound.

    Something like Al Killeu, Ben Dover, Phil Degrave, Bill Loni would be pretty amusing.

    You make one up.
    Its a simple as that. One day it will pop in your head and you will be :eek: I got it.
    It has to be something that you feel in your heart and soul. Something that you like and can feel.

    You should never look for a pen name a pen name follows you.

    Reminds me of a wand in Harry Potter lol!

    A Pen name is also kind of the name you wish you had. Say someone was born "John Smith" and they hated it, wished for a better name. The name they wish they had (Cormac Armstrong) they would use as their pen name.

    Or a fantasy sounding name that wouldn't be used in our modern era.

    Well that wasn't suppose to happen.

    I really don't use one pen name, if I do, but my main pen name is Rabz Anjie, which is technically an altered form of my real name, so Rabz is basically my self-endorsed nickname while Anjie - okay, I shouldn't have made fool of my father's name like that, but it's a pen name, so Anjie isn't exactly my Dad's name anymore, anyhow. So Rabz Anjie it is.

    Anyhow, En Moon (spanish for the), Al Moon (arabic for the), Zeh Moon (like a slang, zeh), Moon Slayer (a little too fictitious, eh?), M. Moon, Moonie (lol). Best wishes with it!

    Pen names. Coming up with one can be both fun and painstaking. Since I plan on going to law school, I will probably assume a pen name when I get my novel completed and if it gets published. Haven't really given it much thought yet. Neidermeyer is a fraternity nickname of mine, so I might just use that as the surname, but who knows.

    Leake, you could just use Moon as the surname, maybe coupled with an androgenous first name. i.e. Alex Moon

    just a thought

    My pen name would be Edward something. I prefer these days to use my middle name to my first name.

    Edward Blackwater.

    Or the name I use when I go bowling: Garret Oswald Donald (HINT: in bowling, only the first letter shows up on the scorecard)

    I have a pen name. It is Erie Sivad. It is an alteration of my actual name.

    I have a pen name as I mostly write in the horror genre and my work is full of gore and can be quite nausiating so I have been told. But I also write children's stories as well. So I figured that if I came up with a pen name there wouldn't be parents sying. "I'm not buying a book for my child that is written by a derranged and disturbing horror writer." :p

    Kind of makes sense if you ask me :p
