What Is Your Nickname?

Hi Friends,

Do you always use your real name? I have an unusual first name and I sometimes use a made up name. For example I do not give my real name at carry out restaurants or when putting my name on a restaurant waiting list. I usually tell them my name is Skipper.

Skipper is much easier to pronounce than my name. I can hear Skipper more clearly when it is shouted out than my own name. Also there are not that many Skippers around so the hostess is not inclined to ask for a last name or initial. I don’t think there is anything wrong with using an alias.

My son Matthew works in broadcasting.  His on air alias is Josh Carter. When he first started in radio the station manager told him he would grow to hate himself if he used his real name. Ergo non de plume.

There are several websites for musicians or would be musicians. I am a would be musician. I have played guitar and sang for a long time but it has really just been for fun.  Playing music is great fun and the musician websites provide an avenue for us would be’s to find and contact each other.

I have decided to use a stage name for my contact info on the musician’s website. I don’t want to use Skipper as my alias. I don’t want to here someone say, “Hey that’s Skipper playing the guitar. I saw him pick up a pizza just a few days ago.”

My stage name is Sand Man. It is an alternative to Beach Boys. Get it? Sand Man. Cool right?
