serpent_sky: red5ish: Do you pole dance? Or are you a Yale alumnae?Neither... Part of me wonders if my life would have been different if I'd had the name I chose all along. If only because I would have had more self confidence when speaking at job interviews, or with publishing myself (not under various pseudonyms) and not always hiding behind my nickname. The one success I have to my name, my band, was done under my nickname, Pixie, which is what I had everyone call me until I had a legal name I liked (and could tolerate.) Best friends did not know my birth name, it was that deeply hidden, and I think it hindered me.Who's to say, though? I could just retroactively be making excuses for thinking I should "follow my dreams" of writing instead of realizing how well wired my brain was for law and similar careers,.... and that I failed at my dreams because I didn't want anyone to address me by my name. Though I know it brought me down a bit any time I ever heard it.
Smelly Pirate Hooker: ReapTheChaos: This headline is invalid due to the fact that strippers don't use their actual names on stage.Yeah, this. Their real names are Crystal and Karen and Brittany. Their stage names are Champagne and Velvet and Raquel.
StreetlightInTheGhetto: If your parents can afford that and didn't inherit wealth a la Beverly Hillbillies they wouldn't name you Candy in the first place.
