    As the title says, I'm going to finally start the process of getting a legal name change this week. For those of you who didn't know, I haven't used my legal name for many years outside of legal documents; I instead go by an alias using the "usage method", although this is limited and I'd rather not have to use my current legal name at all.

    So, here's my conundrum: I don't quite like the first name I've been using for the past few years as I'm tired of everyone mispronouncing it, but I can't seem to find a first name I actually like. Considering I hang out here quite often, I figured the members of Black Hat World could make a suggestion or two. Preferably a two-syllable first name that's not too common or too outlandish in the United States.

    If I could do that I would name myself "ACE" it is unique creative always on first for letter A and it also means the one is better then everyone :D

    You and I both. :D
    It's a bit too ostentatious, but I appreciate the suggestion.
    Last name Hughes, correct? :cool:

    my best friend when i was a kid was called aaron, i think it might have conditioned me, but i think thats a cool name. If i was renaming myself, and didnt think family would think i was copycatting my childhood friend, i'd be an aaron for sure!

    I had a friend when I was a kid who was named Aaron as well. He was a funny kid who used to suck his thumb in the corner of the class when he got nervous, although I stopped being his friend after he inexplicably tried washing my hair with his saliva at a drinking fountain.

    Anyway, I'll take that name into consideration.

    My vote is Ezekiel. Not for religious reasons (a lot of American names come from religious figures). I mostly like it because you can be called "Zeke". Ezekiel sounds smart and Zeke sounds strong. You seem to be both. Plus, when I see your BHW name I only see the "Z" (Zee) :p

    Play this in loop :)

    HTML:
    VERSION BUILD=8961227 RECORDER=FX
    TAB T=1
    URL GOTO=http://www.behindthename.com/random/random.php?number=1&gender=m&surname=&all=no&usage_eng=1
    WAIT SECONDS=2
    You can switch the categories, i set it to English, but you can change it to "Hillbilly", "Norse Myth" or anything :)

    What about Lord, King, Ninja or Knight? They all will sound really cool.

    That's an interesting suggestion. I'll definitely take that one into consideration. :cool:
    Not too long ago, I was actually using one of those name generators and looping it for several hours. Unfortunately, I didn't find it to be of much help at the time.

    Edit: So, I set it to loop and the names "Oliver" and "Nigel" came up. I'm taking this one into consideration as well.
    You know, I had considered King at one point as I thought it sounded nice, but I felt pretentious. :(

    We humans have created this strange usage of "names" imagine if the whole evolution had a different path and now we had name like "ghadnuacbk" witch now does not make any seance since we only have limited number of names (even if that number is in millions) and even the "new" names that are created have the same structure and the same vocal flow as the current ones :)
    Try something that can not be pronounced (the reason why something "cant" be pronounced its not simply because it's "wrong", it will be because we are not use to pronouncing letters in some mixed order)
    So fuck society, pick something out of this world :p :D
    PS: remember that the first name ever created sound strange at that time and million years after we have this... Start your own thing, you might be the first who will start a new trend of names :)

    I also changed my first name cause nobody could spell it right. Went for a normal average name afterall. Most important factor was the nickname that i can get.

    About to change my last name since i dont like it. This one is WAY harder lol

    Nice suggestion! That's another one I've considered in the past, but I'll think it over again.
    I've always wanted my own acolytes... :joke:
    Eh, I'm not much of a fan of those names, but thanks for the suggestions.
    Like the singer formerly known as prince?

    I was thinking about using a name I would have fabricated, but I can never come up with anything I like. :(
    I'm the opposite. The last name was easy for me to choose, but the first name seems difficult.
