    I think you should have DJ in front of your name if your a DJ. Like, playing only other peoples songs n stuff. If your an artist, then drop it.

    "DJ" in front of a name sounds super cheesy and ridiculous...
    Whether you decide to go for it, just remember one thing :

    And yes, I am wanting to avoid adding DJ to my name, even if I even become one, which is easily questionable at this stage in my life. But it seems, you get "tagged" as a DJ, once you start mixing music for a crowd. Hmm....could that be changed....ever?

    It's a scene from The Social Network where Sean Parker (JT) is telling Mark Zuckerberg to lose the "The" from "The Facebook", too bad I can't find a clip of it but the movie is worth a watch anyway. I kind of want to watch it now.

    I think just using your real name is the best way for promoting yourself.

    Arman Van buuren? Sounds great to me.

    Sunny more sounds better then skrillex.

    As I've got older, I've found it increasingly funny that a lot of DJs feel the need to underline that they are a DJ. Of all the performers in the musical world, I think ours is the only branch that does. So many DJs have stage names, yet still feel the need to preface it with "DJ" as if standing in the booth wasn't enough to signify it. It does seem to be more of a Hip Hop thing though. I'm struggling to come up with a Hip Hop DJ who goes by a real name.

    Guitarist Slash? Drummer Art Blakey? Singer Carrie Underwood? Sounds bizarre, as if giving some sort of commentary. And it's only when you put it in those terms does the DJ thing begin to sound a little odd. Perhaps it comes from the need to wear a badge of honour - yes I'm the DJ. It always made me feel a little cooler if people asked.

    Besides, it was hard to fit "Mark Settle" on a belt buckle.

    Oh, ok. I haven't seen that movie yet. Makes me want to now.
