As some of you know from past threads, I have a pretty unfortunate name. It is getting about time to change it, but I don’t know what to change it to. I’d like to keep my first name (Jennifer), because it is a good name and I am used to being identified by it. I am a little less attached to my last name, so I think that is what is going to have to go.
My middle name sucks, and no other last names in my family sound good with my first name. So I’m going to have to come up with a last name out of whole cloth. It somehow doesn’t seem right to come up with a last name that sounds “natural”…it just feels deceptive. I want something hip but also a little geeky, something unique, something that would look good on screen (I’m a film major so my name ends up in a lot of credits).
So far the best suggestion has been…Jennifer Robot.
That is almost, but not quite right. Robots just have a few too many negative connotations. Dopers, I leave it up to you to help me through this important decision. Help me find a new last name.
