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.

My character name and character's personality is taken from Ayn Rand's novel The Fountainhead.

Mine because it matches the agency :)

I chose Tagasiyasat because it is Filipino for detective. I like kind of not-so-common foreign languages.

I was listening to Captain Beefheart's Safe as Milk album when I was creating my detective and I found his a good name.

Well Psi-man is a phonetic pun on my own name 'Simon', but 'Psi-man' was already taken so I had to add 'Inspector' to the front.

Firstly, I wanted to give a "real" name... because, well, it's like a neverending crime story/book, and I wanted my detective to be like a heroine in it :). Also, I wrote a novel a while ago, and its main heroine was called Millie Mannings. I like how this name alliterates and it surely has that noir vibe, so... that's the story of the name :).

(sorry for potential grammar or spelling mistakes, I'm Hungarian :D)

Mine was fairly easy. I already knew from a test character that I wanted to join Vampiric Crypt. So I created Night Queen, a character they couldn't (hopefully) resist. They took the bait, and I am so glad!

Emily as a nod to Lady Emerald Devon and Hill as a nod to Blueberry Hill.
Emily's middle name is Ruby :)
