What's Your Pen Name?

Earlier this week at a Northern Colorado Writers coffee we did a fun activity where we came up with our pen name. You start with the name of your first car and then the last name of a favorite singer. I had a Mustang and one of my favorite singers is Steve Perry.

So my pen name is: Mustang Perry

What is your pen name?

I guess I would be Skylark Jovi. It has a ring to it.

Jennifer Shirk said...

Oldsmobile Brightman.

Hmm...sounds like a classic literary writer. LOL!

Betsy Ashton said...

Oh my. It would be Ford Hayward.

We used to use your middle name and the street you first lived on. With that icebreaker, I'd be Ann Chestnut. Yuck!

I grew up in Manhattan and have never owned a car, nor had a driver's license. One of my favorite singers is Peter Garrett of Midnight Oil.

I present to you: writer Taxi Garrett.

I am loving all these names. Skylark Jovi sounds like a romance writer. Betsy if I was to do yours, my name would be Lyn Plitt (not very exciting). Jennifer, yours does sound literary.
Taxi Garrett? Very interesting.

KT said...

Great names! Mine is Metro Maida.

Kay Theodoratus said...


Mine would probably Ford Travers.

I may have been the only person in the world who bought all of Mary Travers solo LPs.

Patty said...

Mine would be Pinto Carpenter (from Mary Chapin Carpenter not Karen!!!)

Carol Kilgore said...

How fun!

Your way, I would be Ford Collins. Betsy's, my name would be Lea Woolworth.
