    Default Dj/Artist name criticism?

    Hey all, I'm having a rough time with what I thought is a unique and catchy name. My question is, did all of you get people criticizing the Dj or artist name that you chose? I'm getting good responses and then some others like, " oh cool but what about like a virus name, or a catchy disease name, maybe a fantasy name, etc."

    Thanks a bunch StephanV ! It's a real bummer when you think you've found the name that will be next to Carl Cox, or Kaskade, etc some day on a flier and somebody's like, " uhhhh... Worst idea ever!" I've had this name for a while , but just now let it be known lol.

    Their names didn't make them who they are... they made their names what they are.
    The MUSIC is what matters!

    Just leave the DJ in front and you will be fine.

    Just gone with my own name. The whole DJ name for a starter-upper I find tacky.
    Might just be a UK thing.. I dunno.

    Agreed (2nd time today!).

    My thought for all DJs; I'd concern myself more with my DJing output, not what I'm called.
    20+ years man & boy, working the platters that matter. D3EP DJ.

    I did actually, but my second gig (promoter) wanted something more catchy. I got mad and that's how I came up with my name , all I could think about was the promoter wanting me to be fake and then it came lol.

    It probably is a UK thing. You see it all the time with DJ's outside of the UK, but the majority of DJ's in the UK I've found use their own name. Especially in the house scene.

    This topic has just reminded me of this video Steve Lawler did about the X Factor.
