Pen Name Please Help

[name_m]Hi[/name_m]! I am looking for a pen name, for my writing and also for my films. I do both and I don’t know if I’ll get anywhere LOL.

My first name is [name_f]Aurora[/name_f], middle J@de. My last name is very long and very Slavic; too complicated for a pen name unfortunately–even though I am the only one that has my full name in the world.

I like the idea of just using [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] J@de but there’s a lot of people with this name and it sounds a bit too much like a first/middle and isn’t very memorable.

Other names I like are:

  • [name_f]Clementine[/name_f]
  • [name_m]Roswell[/name_m]
  • [name_u]Scout[/name_u]
  • [name_u]Valentine[/name_u]
  • [name_f]Elektra[/name_f]/[name_f]Elek[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Acadia[/name_f] (I was born near here)
  • [name_f]Honey[/name_f]
  • [name_m]Jupiter[/name_m]
  • [name_f]Lily[/name_f]
  • [name_m]Cosmo[/name_m]
  • [name_f]Louise[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Wednesday[/name_f]
  • [name_u]Salem[/name_u]
  • [name_f]Petra[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Juno[/name_f]
  • [name_m]Zigmund[/name_m]
  • Cousteau
  • [name_f]October[/name_f]

I know some of those are boy names but maybe they could work as a last name? Idk.

I don’t know if I should change my first name too or not.

I sort of want a name that sounds like a last name but I feel very awkward using real last names, because I feel like 1) I’m taking something from someone else’s family and 2) It would be weird to use a last name from a nationality that I’m not. I am Slavic/Scandinavian.

Last names in the family are M@gnuss0n, K3ltn3r, G0rleski, but I’m really not that attached to any of them.

I have thought of using [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] [name_f]Clementine[/name_f] but I’m not sure if it is too trendy/too sweet. My work is often dark, so the juxtaposition could be kind of cool, but maybe not.

I’m really open to anything. I just need help!

I really like [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] J@de, but if you cannot use it, I think [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] [name_f]Clementine[/name_f] is a bit too sweet.

[name_f]Aurora[/name_f] [name_u]Scout[/name_u] or [name_f]Acadia[/name_f] [name_u]Scout[/name_u] would be an awesome pen name!

Another vote for [name_f]Acadia[/name_f] [name_u]Scout[/name_u]! I really like the idea of [name_u]Salem[/name_u] as a first or last name, especially since you say your work is more dark. [name_u]Salem[/name_u] [name_m]Roswell[/name_m] or [name_u]Salem[/name_u] [name_f]Lily[/name_f] would be cool.

@elise12 @sparkleninja18 Thank you both! I really like [name_f]Acadia[/name_f] [name_u]Scout[/name_u], but I’m not 100% about it :slight_smile:

I really like [name_f]Wednesday[/name_f] [name_u]Salem[/name_u] or [name_f]Acadia[/name_f] [name_u]Scout[/name_u]!
