    Default Which DJ name spelling is "the classiest"

    Hey guys, I am finalizing my decision as to what my DJ name should be. It comes down to three variations: Nales, Nayles and Nayls.

    I spin Nu-Disco/Indie Dance, House and Electro (of the french variety). I'm trying to pick the one that looks "the most classy." So which do you think that is? I'm set on one of these variations (it's a nickname and an obscure variation of my last name) so don't say "all these sucks." Just pick the one that reminds you of late night driving in the city with your lover with the windows rolled down listening to Breakbot or Hey Champ.

    Thanks!

    You can also propose variations of the spelling if you think it is more appropriate... just keep it to the same sound.

    Images to help decide? I may create another poll to include "Nails" but for now, if you prefer that one then just respond to the thread

    is it pronounced like earl panda has spelled it - Nails? honestly the first think i picture are nails and a hammer. not sexy manicured hottie nails (of the french variety )
    anyway, if its pronounced nails, then i second photojojo's vote. picture it in a fancy font on your next flyer. the Y in the middle can be uber classy.

    IMHO others sound like you're trying too hard.

    plus Nayles looks like it could be pronounced "Nay lez" or "Ni lez"

    and Nayls looks like it would be pronounced "Niles"

    Hey guys, thanks for the comments so far. I know, I worry that people will think "Tough as nails." - but yeah I was hoping for the image of a woman's nails (of the french variety as someone cleverly stated lol)

    Here are some DJ logo mockups to maybe help people see where I'm trying to get at. Also, it may help with the voting (they will be listed in the original post)
