Default LOOKING FOR A GOOD BUSKER NAME

Hi all, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Jodo The Clown, I have been a professional clown now for 14 years here in Canada. Now I wish to expand and get into street performing magic shows. I have gathered a lot of material and have been practicing very very hard for well over two years now. I cant seem to come up with a name to call myself. I think my actual name Joel is very boring and want to spice it up. Anyone have any ideas how I can design a name??? My main show is magic with a bit of unicycling, juggling, fire juggling, and fire eating.
Thanks ahead of time.

I don't see much use in changing your name unless you are doing a character, or your name is hard to say/spell. You could call yourself
"Jokester Joel"
"Jester Joel"
"Jolly Joel"
"Juicy Joel"
"Jamin' Joel"
"Just Joel"
"Joel the Jet"
"Joel Jet"
"Joel the Jackal"

Having a clever name doesn't trick anyone into thinking you are clever though. It might make you easier to remember, and it might keep you from getting confused with some other joel.

Jodo is also the first person singular of the verb 'joder' in Spanish.

Thumbs Up

You could name your self after the famous Billy Joel but change it a bit
"Silly Joel" use some of his music in your juggling routines and add a little piano bit in your show... Ofcourse you can't lug around a full size piano but with a little creativity a small portable one could get you some laughs and add something unique to your show....
