Considering that everyone in my immediate family is either dead or has been cut off from me for more than fifteen years, I decided that with my citizenship, I will also be changing my name and last name legally, since the one I currently have is retarded beyond belief and actually mis-represents me. Since I also believe that I will not procreate in this lifetime (never say never, but I don't see it happening for reasons I won't be going into), the lineage pretty much lives and dies with me. When I'm gone, that's it for this gene pool, and therefore identity is mine and all mine without any attachments or responsibilities.

The fun part about this is that I can generally choose whatever name, middle name, and last name that I like.

Currently I'm actually considering Christopher Snipes (FS2 fans will know that one) and possibly FLAME BOY!

While the latter may be a joke, fact is, I'm looking into cool names and last names to slap on my identity card. Final Fantasy XII actually provided with a cool last name that Larsa Ferrinas and Vayne Carudas share, which is "Solidor".

At any rate, I'm entertaining any name suggestions, so if you have any cool ones that pop into your head, post em if you want, it might give me ideas, or I might even choose exactly what you post.

Strange thread for certain, but a serious one.

well naturally you should first consider all FF7 names, cloud strife, vincent valentine, etc then i would start making variations of said names.. or hell just stick with flame boy.. its really up to you.. but if you named yourself after a game character i would have no choice other to respect you :)

If I was being silly I'd suggest Bobbin Threadbare ;)

But seriously, I always liked the name Francis Delorain, from Nexus the Jupiter Incident, myself.
Marcus Cromell was also good from the same game, but probably not enough for me to reccommend you adopt it. Ironically, Delorain was a very minor character in the game, name was nice though, and since Arthur Norbank connotates the moron who charges into battle head first and loses every fight I'll stick with him :)

Cant think of any others off the top of my head...I'll post again if any come to me.

Ofcourse Christopher Snipes gets my vote BD... :p

but do you look like a Christopher?????

If your going to change your name make sure its something that:
1. you like
2. suits you
3. that ain't totally dumb, as you can't blame anyone else but yourself.

Oddly enough had a mate about 10 years back do the same. Since then he has been legally known as Miles Polar Bear.
Miles was his nickname, Polar Bear came about during a drunk night. It definitely gets attention and he's happy as all hell with it.
Personally, I'd advise against a gamer name, might sound cool but for those in the know a bit pretentious. Go for something non-gaming and unique! Make yourself an American Indian type name. :)
Good luck,

P.S. I always used the name Pinky Carruthers and if I were to change my name, that would probably be it. No 'pinkish' connotations, but he was the leader of the Blue Blazer Regulars in Buckaroo Banzai, Across the Eigth Dimension.

not that i can come up with a good name. but as BD has become the standard short cut for you here, i would choose a name with the same initials, e.g.,

Bobbin Delorai

a mix up of the two names proposed in the post by anny.
