Yes, I would. I used to go by Sin all too often offline and on. To the point where I reacted to it more than my real name. I suppose that was mostly because I had thought about changing my name at one point... then I realized how silly it would be to change it to Sinesthesia. Especially since I think I like various nicknames too much..? I think I am just a nickname hoarder. I appreciate and love having many
names, rather than a real
name? I think one day I wish to be much like what they describe in 'Cats'
the musical. Or rather, the poem that T.S. Elliot wrote that is included in the musical.
The Naming of Cats
The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
It isn't just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I'm as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES.
First of all, there's the name that the family use daily,
Such as Peter, Augustus, Alonzo or James,
Such as Victor or Jonathan, or George or Bill Bailey -
All of them sensible everyday names.
There are fancier names if you think they sound sweeter,
Some for the gentlemen, some for the dames:
Such as Plato, Admetus, Electra, Demeter -
But all of them sensible everyday names.
But I tell you, a cat needs a name that's particular,
A name that's peculiar, and more dignified,
Else how can he keep up his tail perpendicular,
Or spread out his whiskers, or cherish his pride?
Of names of this kind, I can give you a quorum,
Such as Munkustrap, Quaxo, or Coricopat,
Such as Bombalurina, or else Jellylorum -
Names that never belong to more than one cat.
But above and beyond there's still one name left over,
And that is the name that you never will guess;
The name that no human research can discover -
But THE CAT HIMSELF KNOWS, and will never confess.
When you notice a cat in profound meditation,
The reason, I tell you, is always the same:
His mind is engaged in a rapt contemplation
Of the thought, of the thought, of the thought of his name:
His ineffable effable
Deep and inscrutable singular Name.
T S Elliot
Would you like me if I never told you my real
name because it made me unhappy to think about it, even if we were very
