Your Porn Name SUX…

…There seems to be a lack of creativity in the porn name department and very little originality these days. Every girl fresh off the boat is either a Jenna, Jesse, Nikki/Nicole, Brooke, Brooklyn, Alexis,Emma, Abby, Alana, Bailey, Tegan. On my agency site alone, there are two Anna’s, which are both spelled differently. Two Mary’s, two girls with the first name Miss and unfortunately, two Scarlett’s, which are also spelled differently. (Let it be known that I’ve been Scarlett for seven years, so, I think it’s fair to say that, that name belongs to me). 😉

…On LA Direct’s site, there are two Addison’s and four Alexis’! Is that absolutely necessary?

…OcModels has two Brooke’s, both spelled differently, two Holly’s, two Lilly’s also spelled differently, and two Summer’s.

Anyway, you get where I’m going with this.

Jenna Jameson, Jesse Jane, Jenna Haze, Alexis Texas, Nikki Benz…they’ve earned their names. They made these names household names. They are recognized everywhere. And yes, Jenna, Jesse & Nikki are cute, little girly names, but guess what? THE POSITION HAS BEEN FILLED! (no pun intended). Giving yourself a porn name that has already been made famous by the person who first thought of it, will not make you a porn star overnight or win you any awards or recognition of any kind. You may just end up pissing off the wrong person who worked her ass off (literally) to make that name what it is today.

Newbies, don’t be afraid to be creative when it comes to choosing your stage name. Especially if you want the name and yourself to stand out and be memorable. Stage names like Jenna, Alexis, Nikki, Jesse, or Brooke will only get you lost in the crowd. I know strippers with better stage names and that’s not saying a whole hell of a lot.

Your stage name should stand out and look great on a box cover, but don’t get carried away either. If porn is something you’re looking to do, before you sign with any agency, before you do anything…do your research on the industry and spend some time thinking about your stage name. Don’t let your agent choose it for you. Some agents are lazy and may just end up calling you Fido or Grassy Knoll.

Well, kids, that’s all for today. TaTa!

    I agree with you Scarlett for the most part, that more thought should go in to the stage names of adult performers. Names like Sovereign Syre & Skin Diamond show originality (to the best of my knowledge they have not been used, at least in these forms, before), these names stand out. When I see these name I’m not having to pause and think about which performer is been referenced. I mean Sovereign is another way of saying Monarch or Queen which has cool implications (Queen Syre), and Skin Diamond, well Skin is just different kind of name period. The only place where I might differ with you Scarlett (not sure if you were talking to these people), is with adult performers who use their actual names. If someone is not using a stage name then more power to them, if that’s their choice, it’s your name so go ahead and make it your own.

      http://kwm86damh.wordpress.com/ Hey there, I definitely agree. I’ve always found that porn stars with creative names or even normal names, are more interesting to me. Just because you’re in the adult industry doesn’t mean your stage name has to reflect what you do for a living. You don’t have to name yourself after a fruit or a candy. There are even times where I find my stage name to be too pornorific. But it works for me.
