Almost seven years ago I ran across a website where authors can type in their name and receive a computer generated pen name. The site was good for a few minutes of diversion and a couple of laughs.

Since it's warm and sunny outside today I'm having a hard time focusing on writing. My mind keeps wandering, and on one of its forays into the world of daydreams the pen name site popped into my head again. Thanks to what surely must be sophisticated technology here are the top five suggestions for my suitable pseudonym:

Rosalina Lovellette
Kind of romance writerly.

Ervin Reinstein
How it ever came up with this based on my real name I'll never know.

Lilly Tagloff
Maybe if I was a humor writer.

Lucius Ishmerton

Linette Tollison
This one's not too bad. If I ever adopt a pen-name I think I'll consider it.

What a fun way to pass the time. =] And when I hear Lucius, I think of Lucius Malfoy. And when I think of him, I think of acciobrain.com and her great comics. ;)

Sounds like fun, however I think your real name is much better than any of those.

I haven't heard of that website, Laura. I'll have to check it out.

I agree, Angie--even though most people struggle with pronouncing my last name!

What a cool site! I always thought I'd use a pseudonym for my YA fiction and my real name for my romantic suspense, but as you can see I changed my mind. You have a wonderful name for a writer.
