Don't like Fletcher Austin McGuffin? How about Tommie Moldova?

As criticisms of my name continue to stream in at a rate of nearly one every, um, hang on...

As criticisms of my name continue to stream in for a total of one, I thought I would attempt to assuage the situation by coming up with another alias. Since the methodology I laid out here didn't work, I decided that I would do so by ripping off someone else's alias model who is much more famous and popular than me.

For those of you who don't know, Michael Vick is being sued by a woman claiming that he knowingly gave her a... um... social disease. In the case, she even outlines that he got it treated at a local clinic, and to avoid bringing attention to himself he used the alias "Ron Mexico" (Note: please share the mental image of Michael Vick in a poncho, wearing a fake mustache and a sombrero with his arms crossed and eyes darting back and forth in a crowded waiting room).

Since, as I've described why I use a fake name, I assume I personally view my blog with about the same pride that Michael Vick must view his raging case of herpes, I figured I would come up with a new name the same way he did. By going to this website, I was able to generate a sufficient alias for my true self, as well as several of my fake selves. So I thought I would leave the decision up to my Loyal Reader: should I change my name to "Tommie Moldova", "Sonny Azerbaijan", or remain as the adorable Fletcher? I put this question specifically to my friend Victor Paraguay (though his name with no abbreviations is Hunk Montserrat), but I am willing to take opinions from all, including the lovely Tiffany California who has also posted a comment.

Please note, I've been tinkering with made up names trying to get back the male name "Chad Chad", but to no avail. I will keep you posted. Mind you, I'm being paid as I do this.

Of course, this whole discussion leads to our quotation of the day, from the ever-ebullient Albert Einstein:

"Make everything as simple as possible, but no simpler."

I feel this quotation is appropriate when realizing this is my third post of the day...

oh fletchy you can't let one criticism make you doubt your chosen monacher. now don't get me wrong i'm not wild about this particular pen name, but if you look at any character/artist/athlete worth their grain of salt, you'll find they too have had questionable aliases.
Bernie "Boom Boom" Geoffrion, Bart "Rudiger" Simpson, and all of those american gladiators who took the names of elements and onomotopeas. my point (and yes i do have one) is that you have chosen this particular alias and now you've gotta own it.
however i would recommend that when you start your porn career, you put more thought into that name.

Have narrowed my porn name down to three possible names:
1) H.L. Stallion
Using "the formula" I am:
2)Grange Duffield
Or, if I am in gay porn:
3) Screwy McNutfest
