Name of the Feather

I'm thinking of getting me a better nom de plume.

Dammit if "the Scarlet Pimpernel" isn't already taken (thanks for nothing, Baroness Emmuska Orczy).

Alexis the Hun? Alias the Hun? Esmerelda de Taco? Le Bagpiper Noir? George Smith? George Smith the Hun? George Smith the Hun de Taco?

I give you the advice that nobody gave to me but that I wish somebody had - try to avoid sounding like a teenager or a stoner.
Also, anything with Esmerelda is fucking awesome.

You kids are great. I was thinking more along the lines of Femme Banale (what it lacks in alliteration, it more than makes up for in correspondence with my current mood).

Since there are around 3 billion women on earth, I suppose in some literal sense we do have a case of 'femme banale'. Only two genders? How dull. We need more, that would spice things up.

All hail Femme Banana!

Alouiscious Harlington, Doctor(er) of Truth in Life(-Writing), I have been given a new name recently, and I must say, you have gone about this name-seeking business in the right way. Asking for a name from one's tribal equals or elders is a universal rite of passage. My latest name is Motoko, apparently after the spindly but attractive "major" in the anime classic "the ghost in the shell". Far from spindly, though becoming increasingly seargent-major-like in my pedagogical capacity (though the 'Motoko' moniker is derived not from the respectable realm of education but from fun and fanciful fetish party antics) it seems to me clear that the right name emerges at the right time, and from the right bocca del verita. So may a mouth of truth you trust name you aptly.

Bocca del verita in vino? Motoko, I like.
