Options for my pen name

I've been tagged by my favorite Michigan girl, now known as Sbra! I love her extra now that she has punctuation in her name. There's a good chance that when I finish blogging, I'll spend the rest of the afternoon exploring my options in this area:
I could be Trish!
Or Trish%
Or (on a bad day) Trish?
Or the Spanish version (pretend the first one is upside down) ?Trish?
Wow, this could be a long weekend...

Okay, here goes the meme:

1. YOUR REAL NAME:

Trish (Patricia, actually. Not Pat.)

2. YOUR GANGSTA NAME: (first three letters of your name, plus izzle)

Triizzle. That sounds like a weather report, anticipating small amounts of precipitation.

3. YOUR “FLY Guy/Girl” NAME: (first initial of first name, first three of your last)

Tayn. Don't mess with me, I'm pretty fly.

4. YOUR DETECTIVE NAME: (fav color and fav animal)

Blue dog. If I ever start a career as a jazz musician, there's the title of my first album (I'll need some sort of cover for my detective career, no?)

5. YOUR SOAP OPERA NAME: (middle name, Street you live on):

Nadine Ericsson. Clearly, she's a woman not to be messed with! I bet I'd have a long career in the soaps, cause they keep the villain women around forever.

6. YOUR STAR WARS NAME: (the first 3 letters of your last name, first 2 letters of your first name, first 3 letters of mom’s maiden name)

Ryatrcoll. I think that makes me the machine that dispenses cold beverages.

7. SUPERHERO NAME: (favorite color, favorite drink)

Blue Cabernet (and her alter-ego, Blue Chocolate Martini). Now there's a cartoon I'd tune in to see.

8. YOUR IRAQI NAME: (2nd letter of your first name, 3rd letter of your last name, any letter of your middle name, 2nd letter of your moms maiden name, 3rd letter of your dad’s middle name, 1st letter of a sibling’s first name, last letter of your moms middle name)

Radosma. That should be all it takes for me to fit right in. Who cares if I have freckles if my name is Radosma?

9. YOUR STRIPPER NAME: (the name of your favorite perfume/cologne/body spray)

Destination. I think I'd do better as a cruise director.

10. YOUR WITNESS PROTECTION NAME: (mother & father’s middle name)

Amelia Russell. Now when you meet me, you'll know my secret.

These are all fine options, but I still like the look of !?Trish?! Doubt encased in enthusiasm - what more could I want in a name?

I'm tagging Lynette, Swishy, Sarakastic, and Jenny.

Punctuation is a troublesome thing. It'd be awful to add a semicolon to your name and realize you're just not a semicolon kind of girl.

So, what kinds of celebrations do you have planned now that you've finished the book?

Kari Lee Townsend said...

Wahooo, you finished the book. Good for you. Don't you just love that feeling.

Ok, I can see where this I-finished-my-book-and-have-way-too-much-time-on-my-hands thing is going to get way out of hand. But I took your tag girl. I'm still trying to untangle my tongue from my Iraqi name.

Thanks - I needed a fun distraction!

Your gangsta and detective names are pretty successful. :)

I think !?Trish?! is a fantastic idea.

So, someone have spare time on her hands now that she's finished the book?!

It's insane that I've been trying to read this post for like 20 minutes and can't get through because my family is home. We are going to a waterpark today so it was stupid of me to think I was going to get to read my bloggers real quick before I left.

I did get far enough to know it would most likely piss you off if I started calling you "Patty" and that "Tayn" works -- I wouldn't mess with you.

Swishy said...

Doubt encased in enthusiasm ... ha ha. I'll do mine next week!

Michelle O'Neil said...

Too funny! I went through this and really liked my gangsta name.

Micizzle.

Nice.

The Blue Dog are a series of paintings by a famous New Orleans artist - if ever there you will see them all over the place!
