    I find that quite funny, actually.

  2. D. Winston Canterbury. Except I’ve already got a pen name…Kenton Ashford. It’s what my parents were going to name me if I had been a boy.

    brilliant, but I’m not really the sort to come up with new worlds…

  6. You know, I’d just LOVE to use D. Winston Canterbury, but I feel like Anna Jameson fits me a lot better (that’s my pen name, by the way). My pen name used to be Pixie Blaine, but I decided to use that name for an animated series I’m doing instead.

  9. Oooo! I like this quiz. I’m going to take it again until I find a pen name I really love – or compose my own pen-name from the names I was given.

    For some reason it sounds very 1800’s, also I have “O’Malley the Alley cat” song stuck in my head.

  16. Martha O’Malley… no thanks. I already have a few potential pseudonyms in the back of my mind anyway. My current favorite is J.B. Gailbraith.

    ❝I had no idea my name would end up being Martha, and I most certainly never thought my last name would sorta rhyme with my first…This is a very strange pen name. I’ll just stick to my own… ❞

  18. When it asks if you’d work with another author, it has the option “No. You work best alone.” twice.

  21. I got J.M. Berenswick. I was wondering if people would read my story The Brother’s Vengeance. It is pretty long but I will read and comment on your stuff if you comment on my story. As long as the comment isn’t too bad.

  22. I got D. Winston Canterbury. Sounds too stuffy. =/
    I happen to like my real name just fine. I mean with the last name “Reader” how could I not use it?

  25. Haha! Ever since taking this quiz I have been going crazy trying to find myself a pen name! I actually came up with a ridiculous amount of them thanks to all those babyname websites <3

    Wow. This is just proof of what a sad little life I lead.

  32. J.M. Berenswick hahah okayyyy

    but seriously I actually have a tough time deciding what my real pen name would be. My name is just too long and then my name is also just not eye catching or sounds right.
