    Default Hi, my name is _______

    So I have gotten some really mixed feelings about my DJ name ParisCreative. As some who participated in a logo thread (Is my identity/brand outdated) know I took on the name from a brand I had as a web design company with the intention that it could be used elsewhere. I've gotten some positive feedback, but mostly from meh to no. It seems to corporate, it does not seem like a DJ name.

    So I pose this basic question, my name should be _____.

    For my first stint as a DJ till 1999 I was known as DJ T-Love. Kinda corny but it was what it was. I would never go back to that. I spin hip-hop, r&b, funk, soul, jazz, rock, pop, some dance. Yeah at 38 I am not too much into the EDM, Dubstep, or other genre, but if it's really good I'll find time to play it.

    So the names I have so far are:

    ParisCreative (leaning towards retiring)
    SoulSpins
    Funkamix
    ?????

    What works, what doesn't.

    Somehow I don't think that will work.

    Still looking for the perfect name? Wow, time that could be spent on doing a remix...

    Seems getting a name is the hardest thing for DJs nowadays. It used to be to find good records. Or today doing good productions/remixes. But I could be wrong.

    It's so funny, I either get people that really like it, or really loathe it. And if I were to stick with it, there is the issue of the logo.

    Well I really cannot work on mixtapes during the week (unless I am making up a playlist or doing a remix in Ableton). I am on the train from NYC and back 4x a week as part of a 5 hour commute while doing my regular job as Sr. Analyst.

    Paris is just hard to work with. SEO wise the likes of Paris Hilton, and the other DJ's named Paris, it's a crowded field. As for a play on name just not feeling Paress.

    Not only that, since I have a number of mixtapes out there, and some likes over at Facebook and Mixcloud I need to be cautious. If I do the name change it needs to be right, branded right, and hopefully stick to it.

    On the tech forum I frequent there seems to be some likes with the name:

    Funkamix

    Depends on how you feel with it. I started off with DJ Infernity. I tough it was a lame name and didn't feel comfortable. After a while and some gigs later people that I didn't know kept calling me Infernity, i got much positive feed back. Just sick with it i like the ring to it just think of your name coming up on like electric area "Paris Creative in the mix". Sounds good to me and it's catchy, plus you need a name that stands out and that one does for sure
