    Heh, rather original this thread, if I may say so myself. Think about it, if you were to have a pseudonym. A pseudonym is a fictional name, that appears like a real one, and sometimes has a deeper meaning as to why it was made.

    So, what would your pseudonym be? I don't want nicknames, I want realistic pseudonyms. Let's see your clever creativity at work! Feel free to add an explanation as well, if you got one.

    AAhaaahaahaa.

    Reminds me when I was in school and the substitute teacher asked me my name. That is what I replied. He believed it for a short while.

    A pseudonym is a name that an artist (for example) makes up under which he or she release their artistic work, probably most popular among bookwriters. It's done for many reasons, women often signed with a male pseudonym at an early point, because women weren't supposed to write books, and normally didn't have an education.

    One of the most used pseudonyms is John Smith, though because of that noone will believe your real name is John Smith (unfortunate for the few who bear the name, of course).

    Ben Dover, that's clever. ;)

    Iacobus Pamphilos Freely, AKA I. P. Freely. Who understood it, understood it, who didn't, you haven't looked close enough.
