CHOOSING YOUR PINUP NAME
Shakepeare said "a Rose by any other word would smell as sweet", but whether your name is Rose or something else it should be a reflection of you and as unique as you are - after all, you could be using it for a while and the longer you use it for the harder it is to change if you have to.
Coming up with a Pinup name can be a difficult process, so much thought can eventually become too much thought and it gets frustrating. Don't overthink it - but you can absolutely do better than a random online Pinup Name Generator!
Are there any rules for creating a Pinup name?
No, but there are some things you should consider...
The names that are the most fun and stick the longest are creative and original, names that have a quirky twist, names that reflect a love and knowledge of the 1940s and 1950s, names that are clever and show that thought has been put into them - names that compliment the personality of the Pinup persona they represent.
Once you find something you like, try it on! Say it out loud, roll it around on your tongue, say it to your friends and family and see what they think - often saying the name out loud feels different to writing it down. And get them to say it back, how does it feel to be called by it and is it easy for others to pronounce.
A lot of Pinups say that once you find your name it just feels right. If your name doesn't feel right you can always change it!
COMMONLY USED NAMES
Some names are used more commonly than others in the Pinup world.
Although still beautiful, if one of these names is on your list of possible names you may want to consider using something else to keep it more original, or using it in an original way.
(and variations like Rouge, Ruby, Scarlet etc)
