I've always liked that mine turns out as Mabel Chappel with this formula.

Mabel Chappel sounds like a prim and proper lady who always wears a hat. Like Hyacinth Bucket.

I would be Zhaka Orange, and my daughter would be Kitty Sewell.

Kitty was a hamster.

Well, for a certain kind of porn it sounds good.

Mine would be Charmin Staunton. Yes, Charmin, like the toilet paper, so named because he was squeezably soft.

Hmmm. Maybe Brownie Holbrook and Charmin Staunton ought to star together in an anal extravaganza -- Wipe Out!

Buffy Grand...or Maggie Grand. I think Buffy sounds more pornish, though.

I don't know. I submit, for your approval:

Bam Bam Fisher

Although, if you use the first pet/mother's maiden name formula (which is the one I always heard), I become

Bam Bam LeCompte

I've always rather liked that last one.

I only had one pet. Ever. So if I use that and the street we lived on when I was born, it would be...

Fifi Fourth Street.

However, a couple of later streets sound much cooler:

Fifi Alexander

or

Fifi Angelia. (Pronounced An-jell-eee-ah)

Colonel 42nd

or, with the nearest named street:

Colonel Minnehaha

I have no idea in what kind of porn an actor with that name would perform.

There are several porn stars with the surname West. I wonder if "W. 82nd Street" type addresses are why. (I haven't seen many Easts, Norths or Souths.)

Hmmm.... strictly following the rules I'd be Mr. Blacky Tamalpais. My drag king name?

For a better one (my streets aren't real good) I could be Dragon Reno. Or for a cheese, Smokey Gloucester.

Oh ... by the way ...

I think we should arrange a vote for the best of these.

I believe I'd be at least in the top ten:

Taffy 159th. However, if I skip to passable names I'm Woodstock Evergreen. Good for hippie porn, I guess.

I have no idea what the name of the first street I lived on was. Using the formula for my current status, I'd be Roxee McKnight.

I don't remember mine either (as a military brat I lived in 3 different countries and a couple of states before I even started school) so if I use the earliest known pet name and street I would be Mandy Jackson- not very porn-ish sounding, is it?

If I use my current status I could be Josh Carter, Sasha Carter, or Gracie Carter, all of which sound like normal names to me and not like any kind of stage name someone would actually bestow upon themselves... so I guess porn stardom just isn't in the stars for me.

I've always liked this porn-name formula - it gives me a decidedly appropriate moniker:

Rascal McGregor.
