How many different names do you as a model typically go by ?

I noticed today that one model I shot , goes by at least four
A different one for each forum she is on.
I only knew two , her real name and the one she gave me to use with her pics.

I wonder why because now I posted images under one name and now see that the people on that site know her by another .( just happened to come across it )

While on that line of thought - how many sites do you represent yourself on ?

well, first. My name is Apryl. I go only by Terrace when I am online. (this is the one and only time you'll see my actual name online) Until the photographer meets me in person they usually dont see or hear any other name than Terrace.
I am represented on ModelMayhem, here, Kind Indrusties, some other one (that hasn't picked up traffic yet..) Myspace (but that is Apryl's myspace), and I have a personal site. I have deleted my othermodelplace account a couple years ago. Also, after a shoot with a photog, sometimes I am an addition to their site, as well.
So, 6, plus my old othermp account.
And 3 photographer websites (to my knowledge)
I dont know why a model would have several different names. I pick a name because I have a really normal, average name and I want my images to be more than average (or at least have a not average appeal) The name "April" is easy to forget. People often call me "amber" or "amy" and I would definitely not be the "one and only".
.....Terrace is not as easiliy confused, and it sets me apart (and gives me the chance to be the "one and only")
This is what I hear in my head......
Conversation A: between two photographers.
Photog1 "I shot with this awesome model the other day"
Photog2 "oh yeah? who was it??"
P1" her name was april something"
P2 "I shot with an april once.....where's she from?"
P1" illinois." P2"oh yeah? peoria area?" P1: "yeah"
P2: "what's she look like?"
P1" long brown hair, green eyes..."
P2:"oh, I shot with her, yeah she was awesome...." OR
Conversation B:
P1: "hey I shot this awesome model the other day.."
P2: "oh yeah? who was it?"
P1: "her name was Terrace"
P2: "Yeah, I shot with her, she's awesome..."
Which conversation would YOU rather have?
As you can see, I strive for awesomeness..ahahah
anyway, sorry for the novel, but there's my input.
Great topic, Stan!

I was thinking about it after I wrote it and your post about marketing.
All I could think of was seperate names for seperate markets, mainly nude and non-nude. or commercial or whatever
The only thing was she had many different pics under each alias.

It reminded me of the old line about how dancers get their names....
take your pets name and then add the name of the street you first lived on
Usually works (go ahead and laugh , mine would have been Fluffy Lake )
I could have been big in burlesque !!!

Mine is has always been some variation of Toni. I went with Toni Michelle in the last year or so because it was less confusing with the line between my real life and model life blurring. I have 2 myspace pages one model and one paintball. Most of the time you will find my user name as brattitude. I suppose if I were actually doing something with a modelling career I would have picked a brand name that set me apart, and stuck with it. But.... as it is, I'm just having fun and am not all that concerned with what I'm called.

I did give myself Toni D'Tygre for an alternative site once. That was fun.

Several models I know have different names for different types of Photography. One model that comes to mind had a different name for each site and she used her real name only one one site. I think it is confusing trying to keep track of the various names.
