    Default Getting a name.

    Hey DJTechToolians,

    I've played out 2 gigs, and I'm looking for a name so that I can get some cards printed and finish my website.

    I cater to a young crowd, roughly in the range 14-19, and I play mostly dubstep, brostep, prog. house, hard dance and top 40 (remixes).

    I'd like your opinion on these two names:

    FSCK
    Context: This is the name of a tool used on some computers (Linux) to repair broken hard drives. It also looks a lot like F*CK, which I didn't actually notice for a while. However I can't seem to say this one out-loud. Maybe FiSCK or FuSCK are possible pronunciations; but I prefer it as F.S.C.K.

    The Non Realist
    Context: I study philosophy, a non-realist is somebody who believes that things aren't real in an objective sense. For example most people would be aesthetic non-realists. The acronym this names makes is quite nice "TNR", but it is a bit long.

    So, let me know what you think, or if you think of any better names. Cheers.

    My concern is that if I spell it "fsck" or even "fisck" then it would be hard to spell if you heard it. Maybe I'll just laser etch the spelling onto people's eyeballs.

    Anyone every give you a nickname at school?
    I got mine because I wrote my name as Jou instead of Jon at drumline auditions.
    Sort of grew to like it
    I think the best names out there are ones only you understand or that are derived from personal experiences.
    Anyways good luck

    My nickname at school was TDB, which was derived from my initials. Though I'd rather get away from that.

    you might want to think about the bajillion ways people are going to missay or deride your name if you stick with fsck: f-suck, f*ck-suck, etc.

    The Non-Realist is ok, but you will have a heck of a time explaining philosophy to some people into whom you will inevitably run.

    maybe since you use Linux, your name could be Lynux, Linyx, Lynx, Linx, Links, or something along those lines.

    And if you want to go along the lines of philosophy, you could pick the name of your favorite philosopher...

    I quite like FSCK. Fusk.
    The Non-Realist is a horrible, horrible, HORRIBLE name.
