Ok, so I fully accept you can't give yourself a nickname, however...

I have a band mate who shared the key to generating a blues name for any perfomer.

The formula is this Infirmity + Citrus + U.S. President Last Name = Your blues name

I built an Excel based name generator in case anyone is interested. I used my name generator and came up with my official blues name... Broke Leg Kumquat Jefferson (BLKJ for short).

I had a broken leg mountain biking two years ago in case you were wondering.

I'm completely spacing... is there any way to upload the excel file to this site?

Jul 29, 2010 2:00 PM GMT
Brady Mills Replied:

Hey Broke Leg J,

You can't upload it directly here, but if you'll send it to me, I'll add a link to it!

Two versions of the name generator should be in your inbox.

Hey Broke Leg J... I got it and am trying to figure out if there is a way to add this on HarmonicaSpace someplace so people can use it online... Thought it might be a fun novelty item for the site. Of course, I'd only use it with your permission though! So, do I have it?

Okay, this is my favorite thread here. I'm my own generator. I might be:

Spacy Lime Garfield

Inattentive Kiwi Truman

Eyes Askew Satsuma Eisenhower

Gassy Ugli Nixon

(the last one is my favorite one, and yeah, I looked up citrus fruits to get that name)

"Eyes Askew Satsuma Eisenhower" is SOOO FUNNY!!! Well played Orthodox!

Hmmm... I wanna play... Can I be 3-ballsplantain taft? (I had a low hernia that very much resembled a third testicle. Totally wish I were joking but I'm not).

How bout Hernia Honeydew Hoover???

Long live the pride and dignity of the Blues tradition haha

Brady, yes feel free to use the name generator as you'd like. Playiing with the name generator can pass some otherwise unproductive time.

Diabetic Avocado Van Buren? (yes, the avocado is technically a citrus fruit). If you run out of fruit you could replace "citrus" with "bodily attribute" - Gouty Fat Jefferson, Bald Slim Taylor, etc. . Come to think of it, "Diabetic Avocado" would be a good name for a band.

OrthodoxBlues Replied:

Diabetic Avocado could be a good song, too. I only have one line, "Diabetic avocado, too sweet to eat ..."

That can't be right. I can't be 'Impotent Tangelo Bush'

Chris .... Ouch! You can't be.

walterharp Replied:

i don't know about the sinner part Ana, but the fat part is certainly wrong, unless you refer to the tone of your playing!

Ana R Replied:


Unfortunatelly practising don't leave me much time to be a sinner but leave me enough time to become fat:)

Aug 18, 2010 6:24 PM GMT
walterharp Replied:

well you have to sin a little to play the blues!

I'm not too good at this. Especially when I try to incorporate alliteration for effect.

Herpes Hermandina Harrison seems too feminine.

Pellagra Pomelo Polk just doesn't roll off the tongue well.

Goiter Grapefruit Garfield makes me sound fat.

How about Macrophallus Mandarin McKinley ?
