What’s in a Name?

~

I’ve been using “Jenny” up until now, but it has been pointed out that having the pen name Jenny and a character named Jenny can be confusing and maybe a little weird.  I don’t want to change my character’s name – I love her like she is.  And in the meantime, I have found that there are a fair number of writers named Jenny.  So I’m toying with the idea of using an old family name, Sophie Kisker.

Any opinions?  (I don’t really look like her, I promise)

  1. Sophie or Sophia?

    I very slightly prefer “Sophie” as sounding more plain-spoken and American (which matches your direct conversational style).

    Sophia sounds more exotic and foreign, maybe just because of Sophia Loren.

    Of course, that's probably a good thing for a writer of erotica. Sophia Voluptua? Sophia de Venus?

    Yeah. You're better off not taking name advice from me.

    It is going to be a little hard to stop calling you Jenny, even though it makes commenting on your stories a bit weird at times (“Jenny, I think you should write a scene where Jenny gets spanked harder” is the kind of awkwardness you want to avoid.)

  2. I like Sophia Jenny. It does have a nicer sound. As long as you can be found is what counts.

    Ashley Judd is one of my favorites. I first got into her when her mother and sister were on top of their game. Of the three I like Naomi the best.

    One of my favorite movies is Double Jeopardy.

    Your picture of the Siren reminds me of nude women sitting on rocks entering the Harbor in Cannes, France. If you want to sound exotic and foreign I love exotic and foreign.
