    Exclamation my porn name has GOT to go! HELP!

    ok so i need help (yet again lol)

    The porn name I chose, with the help of some others, was Briana Sky.

    great. but as i'm doing more and more research, there a one million different porn girls that have Sky, or Skyy, or Skye as their surname.

    this is unacceptable so i need help.

    Briana is my middle name - so i want to keep that. this is what i've been brainstorming...no one seems to like these ones except me:

    Briana Cash (i love money!)
    Briana Morgan (i love Capt. Morgan Rum!)
    Morgan Cash (Self Explanatory)
    Alexa/Alexia King (i like the surname most)


    i'm at a standstill. and i need to get this knocked out ASAP so if you have any sort of advice, criticism of the names i've provided, or suggestions i would really love it!

    i know your pain. imagione combining your stage name of a few years, with your real middle name, only to find out that there is not just one, but TWO famous porn and page 3 models using the same name . *sigh*

    i figure its gonna be a bitch to change now, so many people know me as that, im slowly dropping the last bit out of my name instead.

    So I'll give a different wrinkle to this. I like Briana too, and I like the way that "Sky" was one syllable.

    Juno was the Roman queen of the sky--you might go with a one-syllable variation of it--Briana June, or something like this.

    Fand, from Celtic myths, was a breathtaking beauty from the otherworld...Briana Fand. I guess it will help if you find something interesting enough that it can be written about and has a different sound. I'm reminded of how Madonna, in the beginning of her career, went to a dance audition with a giant safety pin through the back of her shirt--she wanted to do something strange and bold...and that thinking worked for her.

    From Roman and Greek mythology you might even do something with the Sirens...Briana Si is an interesting name...the "Si" has the sound of "sigh" and the "S" a sound of something mysterious.

    I guess out of these mythological ideas I'd go with Briana Si. It is actually close to the sound of what you started out with, but you could have the story of the Sirens to go with it! Your lure is so great, that sailors have to tie themselves to the mast to keep from sailing to you!

    It sometimes helps in porn to have a similar name...recognition means a lot. Theres a reason there are so many ___Lynn's and such....subconciously guys think I liked Ginger Lynn so I'll like Ashley Lynn...even though the two girls have nothing to do with each other.
    It gets your stuff watched.

    But if you are looking for originality ... there are a million Briana's and Morgans too.....so get a baby name book and flip[ through until you find somethgn original that strikes you.

    ok I'm really feeling Briana Price, Briana Savage, and love Briana Jolie.

    I love the concept behind Briana June and Briana Si - just not sure of how good of a name they are.

    @ Cameron - i very much see your point. However, if I'm going to be associated with someone, I'd like for me to be associated with people of high caliber - not a bunch of unknown budding pornstars. Sky is to porn what Lil' is to hip hop (y'know, Lil Wayne, Lil Bow Wow, Lil Mama, Lil Fizz - after a while it becomes a joke and played out).

    That's why, to satisfy Cameron's point as well as my own, Briana Jolie seems like a great name. Are there very many Jolie's out there? But i will get on that baby book idea asap.


    i looked up Sky in the thesaurus and Azure came up. I really like it. Can anyone think of a name that incorporates Azure??

    How about going to freeones.com or one of the adult industry boards (I went to adultdvdtalk.com and typed in the name in the 'search for movies' box with the 'star' option used) and typing in a name you think you want. If it comes up somebody already has it. If it doesn't, then it most likely doesn't, but people with a similar name are displayed. Honestly, picking your name isn't that big a deal as long as it's not super cheesy or being used by somebody else.

    There are more than 20 girls using 'Jolie' in some part of their name, I just looked it up.
    There are too many Jennas because they think that it will help them somehow.
    There are too many girls with 'color' names.
    There are too many girls trying to use their name as a platform that they will base their entire career on. It's a name. Producers dont' really care what your name is, as long as you perform well and it can be spelled easily. If it can be misspelled, it will be, and you'll end up with 6 different spellings of your 1 porn name.

    Ginger-Always been my stripper name. Simple, easy to pronounce and spell.
    Lee-Easy to spell, pronounce, and there were no other girls using that name combo.

    It's just porn. Shit, girls change names all the time. Don't stress over it.

    Lucky One - that name is FIRE! i like how you switched it up! i love it! def a contender!


    @ Ginger - hhmmm...maybe i am over thinking it just a bit...regardless of my name, if i perform well i can still brand myself (which is my goal...i don't want to be a part time ps).

    maybe i should stop thinking so hard...

    Thats the truth. I've seen this one girl(cuntrag thief..but we wont get into THAT)on 4 or 5 sets and every time it was with a new name. Nobody ever knew what to call her. But everyone hated her so we didnt really talk to her anyway.

    Dont be too complicated. People dont watch porn to think.

    24 girls using Kennedy in some way for their porn name. More than 20 are using it as their surname.

    When I say it's used I mean that somebody else has used it, not that it is currently being used at this time. I know you're trying to stand out from the rest so I was just lumping in all the girls that have used the name you are asking about.

    There is actually a girl that started doing porn after me that uses that name, but she spells it Ginger LeA. We look nothing alike and don't even do the same genre of porn, but I was pissed when I saw it. There was a brand new girl whose agent convinced them to use my REAL name as their stage name. This agent shot stuff on the side and had a disagreement with my agent over something I shot for her, and BAM! her next 'new' girl had my legal name as a stage name. I know the girl using my name didn't know what she was doing, but it was shitty for her agent to do that.

    Ah, the glamour of porn.

    ^^ What! i would have been so pissed! can't you like, sue or something LoL

    I get what you mean over the numbers and girls that have used that name at one point. it's just rough because i want to go balls to the wall with porn. i want to be great. and i want to be marketable. i dont want my name to be too porny. i want there to be some crossover potential with my name. i want it to be something i LOVE that i will never have to change.

    i don't know why im so stuck on Cash...something about it I can't shake.

    hopefully it will come to me soon (or hopefully you guys will come up with it soon lol)

    Just so you know....the probability of crossing over from porn to mainstream is slim to none. MAYBE 1 in 10 or 20 THOUSAND cross ove even in a small way.

    I dont mean to discourage you..but most mainstream companies wont touch anyone with an adult background.

    well i don't expect to become like one of the hosts on the Today Show or anything but i feel as if my look has tons of mainstream or commercial appeal. i look like the type of girl that isn't supposed to do porn LoL. i know it wouldn't be hard to at least get some face time on some light night mainstream shows geared towards men.

    maybe im just ambitious lol


    i got it! Audrey King or Audra Kingsley

    Briana King or Briana Kingsley maybe??

    Nope there's nothing I can do. If I wanted to do all the legal stuff like that I'd have to pay more money than it would be worth to do it. I don't really want to be the punchline for jokes in industry magazines and websites, and most people would think I was being a bitch if I made a big deal about it. I mean, I love my name, but it's not like I'm some mainstream star that's having her name used by some porn girls.

    On pretty much every set I go to I am told I am the exact opposite of what a porn girl 'should' look like. NOT bragging here, but it's part of the reason I get almost all my magazine covers and boxcovers for my DVD's. I was a promotional model and a glamour model before I started doing porn, so I was marketable in the mainstream world. As soon as I started doing porn, the same people and companies I had been working for could no longer use me. People are more judgemental than they admit.

    I've done mainstream radio, internet radio, 'porn' radio, porn interviews, mainstream interviews, and done the late night TV stuff. I hosted my own call in show on a very popular channel one Friday night. I have never felt more degraded and insulted than when I had to do anything mainstream. It didn't matter than I have gone to school and I am doing porn for fun, it was a 30 minute long 'Ginger is a stupid whore who does porn to make money.' fest. I got called some really awful things, and there have been times I wanted to cry, but I couldn't, especially doing something mainstream. People in the entertainment industry even look down on porn girls. I was at a very large 'adult' party a few weeks ago, and there were musicians, NFL players, actors, etc. They ALL looked down on me with pity because doing porn meant I had no other talent than knowing how to fuck on film.

    I know that sounds harsh, but I've done what you're wanting to do. It sucks. The pay sucks. Unless you love being made fun of by a ton of people and not having the opportunity to defend yourself, it's not really that great.

    Somebody very wise once told me...

    'Having your name up in lights and rubbing elbows with famous people doesn't pay your mortgage, working you ass off does. Don't expect to become famous, but always try to get rich.'
