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.

It's a combination of a friend's old role-playing character called Encyclopedia Zorn, who was a strange FBI-agent in sun-glasses and hawaii-shirt, and Bill Pullman's character Daryl Zero from the movie "Zero Effect" - one of my favourite Private Investigator movies.

I always have a Shades character and then make up a grandparent for them. I decided not to be sexist so my third Shades character was female, a 'Moonlighting Dilettante' Jill Weine. Since she spent all her money, she earned it from... her grandfather, Sir William, 2nd Duke of Kingston. This is set in the 20s, see the point? Shades' Weine is related to this one. I don't know where HER name came from though. Oh yes, it ought to be 'Whine' but I made it such as a joke.

I didn't see every post on this thread, but is Anais Nin named after the writer, Anais Nin?

Um... kinda... I love a quote of her's, so I used her name. But then I read one of her books... But I still love the quote! Here it is:

"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage." -Anaïs Nin

Once upon a time, I was writing a detective story. Dylan Kane was one of the brothers of the detective, Nick Kane.

M is short for my first name which is Marc.
I'm sure you can guess that Lacrimosa is my last name. I chose to use my real name because...well....it sounded like a good detective name and besides that, I couldn't think of a good fictional character name
