how does one select their clown name? Opening a can of worms....?
"Worms the Clown".
There you are Skip, job's done for you. Pay me when you can afford it.
Well, I still haven't named my clown. It's sort of a comic ambiguity in persona.
But, I suppose you could pick a name out of a hat. But, first, make sure you put some names into the hat. Otherwise, you might have people calling you Stetson. Or 6 and 7/8!
There are no real rules about names. Some people base their clown name on their real name. So, Joe might become Joey the Clown. Other people use a nickname they have had for years. I just made something up.
One thing to consider are the other clowns in your area. If there is already a clown named Skip, then it could be confusing for customers if you also are Skip. Since social media and the Internet are important, you might want to see if the domain name is available before picking a name. If every combination of Skip The Clown are already taken, then you might have a hard time finding a good website.
Someone suggested starting a list whenever something good came along and use that for inspiration. For my name, one item on the list was honeydukes from the Harry Potter series.
Make sure to do your research you do not want to take the same name or a name like some other clown in your area. Think about your clown what does he or she do, what are your likes, what is your customers is like or where are you from. All of these can help you with a name. In my case I am from Normal Il. That where the " The NORMAL One" comes from. I am NOR-MAL doing adnormal things.
You need a partner named Sir Bloomington III.
I don't have a clown name, but if I did it would be funny, marketable and not at all sexy.
Obviously I didn't care about the marketability of my name and just went for a raunchy one that overflows with sexiness.
Oh my yes, that's why I always blush when you drop by.
Separate names with a comma.
