Unhappy I want to change my SM name ...

I really wish when I registered with SM that I had chosen a cool name, rather than just using my real name. Everyone has such creative names here... almost like video game characters.

sooooo my question is (kevin ) can I change my name to something cooler? like "nosferatu" or "Mr.Phong" (I love Blinn's name ) or whatever?!?!?

sincerly,
Mr. Normal Name Porter.

Awww, but Howard! You're cool without having to wear the false mantle of a cool sounding name.

yeah, I don't think there's anything wrong with your name. I use my real name, kinda.

My name just happens to be shared by a mountain in Alaska.

I have two names, the one that comes on bank statements, and the other that comes forums. My name is the same all over the net.

Can we have a "pick howard a new name" thread? <snigger>.

Using my surname as nick has its disadvantages. Being called everything from Fred to fredrickson and every other spelling known to man, but its ok.

I shortened the name I use for online gaming etc to what people usually shorten it to in conversations in game rooms etc. Despite someone here thinking I was a girl rather than a chap (hadn't occured to me!) I am so used to using it or it's longer version for everything online it's almost like my real name.

Even if you change your name now though we will still probably call you Howard
