Some of us have interesting reasons to pick a detective name. What is yours?

jstkdn which some people don't realize right away stands for JuST KiDding! It is something I tend to say a lot in real life after a lot of sentences. A good friend of mine in the US had jstkdn as a license plate of her car, so I wasn't that inventive myself.

My previous other agent was PM, which stands for Project/Program Manager, my profession in real life.

My only detective that I currently play with is freelancermountaineer. Only because Freelancer was taken. Sidney Bristow in the Alias series uses two call signs freelancer and mountaineer.

Thank you for this topic, jstkdn!

Okay people, cfm stands for nothing more than my RL initials! I never intended to get this involoved with this community, and so I didn't really work all the hard on my name when I created my detective. It takes a lot to jump start my imagination, and so it was just easier that way.

I have written a series of stories around four brothers, three of which run a PI agency and the fourth who is a police officer. Their names, from oldest to youngest, are:

Corin Joshua, Delphi Joshua, Saxon Joshua and Blaise Joshua.

Hence, my names : o )

I have no idea...I just liked the name Makensie, and Brewer, who knows, it just popped in my head after I chose Makensie as the 1st name. Not too exciting of a reason lol ;)

P. Rockwell-the bio is actually taken from US history. He's just been interesting for me to study over the years.

Reverend-Actually my real nickname. I guess my friend find me preaching sometimes. And with a little energy, Reverend Raymond Brown (RL name) sounds pretty cool.

I am very short, and most of my friends call me Lil' because of it. Therefore, I combined Lil and my first name, Rachel, to come up with my name, LilRach.

My fiance calls me sweets. Sweets was taken, so I used part of my real name, R to invent R Sweets, private detective.

As a teen, I was a camp counselor at a camp where the counselors used "camp names" rather than their real ones. My camp name was "Orbit," but some of my friends started calling me "Orbitrux Maximus" as a joke.

I chose the picture I wanted first, then thought about who this chap might be - and then chose a name I thought suited the character!

Apart from being British, he has no similarities to me in RL whatever - as my agency colleagues will no doubt tell you with some amusement :-)
