When I came to the Main Grid from the Teen Grid, taking a new name let me expunge my previous life and exercise a little wit. Very little, apparently, as most folks don't get that my name is Bird Bird, if translated properly. I'm not the only one that tried, successfully or otherwise, to be amusing and early on I started collecting "funny" names of people I've met or at least stood within chat-range of in-world. Since seeing a huge uptick in "AOL-style" names after the introduction of the common, usually unseen, surname of Resident, I've looked at my funny name list a bit forlornly. I'm sure I'll keep adding to it, but I might have to keep a category just for Display Name choices. These can be just as funny as pre-Display Name choices, but it is far easier to be funny than when trying to do so within the system's limits. Here is where my "Really Great Avie Names" list stands today:
Chekout Lane, Cut Wiener & UnCut Wiener (twins, of course), Crow Diesel, Des Gruntled, Dred Looming, Elvis Presley, Euclidean Surface, Glucose Sideways, Grim Thespian, Harry Potter, Hiro Protagonist, Manure Sack, Too Yootz, Totally Unsustainable, Wrong Wright

I wonder how many of these people pushed for Display names after living with these choices for a while?
