reverb10 day 23: new name

Today's (super fun) reverb10 prompt comes from author Becca Wilcott:

Let’s meet again, for the first time. If you could introduce yourself to strangers by another name for just one day, what would it be and why?

OK, peeps, today is an incredibly busy day, so I'm doing this one early and fast. And the first name that popped into my head is this:

Chantelle Ivy.

Why this fancy-and-quite-exotic name, you ask?

Well, it's my porn star name.

(NOTE: I AM NOT A PORN STAR. I have never had porn star aspirations, and, frankly, I don't think that there are any successful porn stars who wear glasses, although I'm not sure, because I haven't done extensive research.) (Well, maybe there are some successful porn stars who wear glasses in a "sexy librarian" sort of way, where she rips them off, along with everything else, as part of the "plot." If I rip my glasses off, I will walk into walls. I'm not sure that's exactly sexy.)

You know how to get your porn star name, right? You take the name of your first pet, and then add the name of the street you grew up on. For me, that equals Chantelle Ivy. Nice.

What's YOUR porn star name?

Pleased to meet you.

I think Chantelle Ivy would get Paloma into even more trouble. Just for the record, specs rock. At least until the bifocal years.

My alter, alter ego is Twiggy Pond Hollow.

I think Chantelle Ivy is a beautiful name but LOL @ your disclaimer and even more LOL @ Ginger Silverwood and Muffin Gable! Brilliant.

LOL! Chantelle Ivy - l guffawed at the mental picture of you tossing your glasses and then walking into walls - such an unusual porn act!

Not sure I'd want to introduce myself this way (and I'm pretty #&*@ sure this is NOT a good name for a porn star...kinda sad marketing), but mine is Pigwhistle Franklin.

Sadie Gretel....pleased to make your acquaintance. Hilarious.

Cinnamon Deeplusty. Just kidding. But that is my favorite stripper name. I think that running into walls is very sexy, so good for you!

Rufus Orchard... I don't think that will work. How about second pet, second street? That would be Tiffany Fernwood. Much better.

Although, truthfully I'd rather have the name Loretta. I have no idea why but I've always loved that name.

Afro Meander

My parents were hippies who named their black very furry dog Afro. I think I would need a wig for my performance.

I was born with a porn star name: Dolly Dimke
- at least all my bros in the military made sure that I knew it was a GREAT porn star name. (sheesh)

Desdemona Pasqua

I'm not even sure what kind of porn star I would be. A Shakespearean Native, I guess.

Lol. This post is such a fun post, it made my day. My porn star name would be very horrible. I bet the worst and non-sexy pornstar name in history: Cleo Dieter

Don't you agree? Haha.
