    Default I need a DJ name!!!

    Hi!
    I got into DJ'ing when I was young, and now I'm starting to take it seriously.
    I also produce music, I make and DJ a combination of hip-hop, EDM, dance, and everything in between.
    My dream is to be a major DJ/producer at major festivals like tommrowland.
    I need help coming up with a name
    My full name is Steven Tautonico, people call me Steve or Stevie.
    I'm really struggling to find a name that I like and could stick with.
    I also plan on using my DJ name as a producer...obviously lol.
    Thanks for all the suggestions

    How about "Steve".

    As you've probably guessed, i think DJ names are a bit silly! :-)

    Steven Tau has no real branding or significant social media presence, and it's easier to spell than your full name.

    The obvious twitter handle is taken by an author, but that should be easy to deal with. (e.g., Steven_Tau_Official).

    I would suggest to pick a name that people already call you.
    Steve Nico or something similar sounds good, quick and easy to pronounce.
    Cheers..

    Choosing the right name is the art of marketing. Something short, maybe, I'll stay away from sophisticated names.

    I was very fortunate to be given my DJ name. But I have seen many a person go mad, chopping, and changing their name until they are happy.
    My advice is when you make a decision, stick to it.
