The Name Game  
So I'm in a bit of a weird bind. I recently found out one of the things that's ruining my chances of doing most anything in the Bangor area is there are two women with the same name as me, both approximately my age, who are violent criminals that frequently appear in the paper. I'd like to take a "why should I have to be the one to change my name? They're the ones who suck" stance a la Office Space here, but the fact that I have no particular affection for my name combined with the fact that the're violent and outnumber me has made it so I have pretty much no choice but to change my name soon.

I'd had an idea for what I want to change my name to for a while (my male name), but I'm not ready for that just yet. So I need to think of a placeholder name. If I am forced to change my name, damn it, I'm going to have fun with it! (I just know I'll cop out in the end and change my last name to the name I was born with, my mother's maiden name, though.)

As of right now, I'm seriously considering Phoenix Wright.

And then every time someone searched you, they'd get gay porn and "Boot to the Head".

I'm sorry.

Still prefer that over a lengthy assault record! At least that's something I did between two consenting adults on my own time. ^_~

Come on, Goo, you know the only appropriate name for you to take is Edward Cullen.

At least Phoenix is vaguely gender-neutral.

I would go with something semi-generic, that you could then mash into a cool nick name once you got to work. Like, Ashley becomes Ash (which would be cool if you were a boy, but boring if you were a girl). Or maybe you can simply make your middle name your new first name--which is, incidentally, what my boyfriend has had to do, since there are so many other people with his normal name.

there was a four hundred pound murder victim in the early 80s who had the same name as me.
