    So I've been thinking of a name as a DJ/Producer/Emcee for a while now. I got into DJing about 4 years ago, been rapping/emceeing for about 5, and just recently began to learn to produce (after the new year). I want to graduate from uni but my passion is music. Its something I'd like to do, as a side or if I get big enough, whatever. But I feel anyone can learn and you only have this life, so why not do what you love and follow your passions? :wave:

    So I was talking to my boy who is also into producing and came up with an alias, cause I don't want to user APERone (because I still write and have been trying to find something else for 3 years):
    Fazilka. And as short it would just be Zilka. Its the name of the town my dads village is located in in India.
    The reason im asking is this name has meaning to me but I want to know what the word makes you think of, does it sound good, and other thoughts. I'd appreciate honest feedback.

    Actually edit: Another one ive been thinking of is ferozpur (pronounced fur-oze-poor but as one word) or just Baksh, the end of my first name, which means bless

    ferospoor or whateer it was.. no

    baksh.. no

    they both dont roll off the tongue easy enough, and dont stand out

    fazilka or zilka is the best out the three ..

    you want something that stands out but sounds catchy aswell, having a single short name doesnt help you stand out from the other millions of dnb djs ..

    something with two words maybe ..

    Mampi Swift is a good name or Hanz ilka, or gorilla pubes

    dont stress to much about it ... at the end of the day , your name should totally be a reflection of you and your personality ... if anyone of those names you believe is you then "trust it" and "go with it" ... to be famous or desire to be famous isnt really how you should set about something ... if it happens it happens you cant force something so , just because at 1st you consider the name youhave chosen not to be the coolest name on the block at start off by the time if "celeb" status as what u have become then the name isnt an issue and its what you do etc is the most important ..... specially in the non commercil world that i take it "your" into ... if you into a manifactured commercil world than take a different route as this is how they opperate ...

    yea i actually agree, and if you do get up there.. then the name automatically becomes renound.. Andy C is pretty much a shit name when you think about it.. but coz we all know it and are used to hearing it , its ok ..

    gotta be called Monkey Tennis, surely

    Thanks everyone. I think I'm going to stick with Zilka, maybe add another word to it as time goes on. Panty, thats what I mean. I like drum and bass and want to make drum and bass, but at the end of the day I want to be working a regular job. What I mean is that it is my passion and I will pursue it, I don't care for fame but if I get it, good. I know what you mean with the name being a reflection. I think its good because its after a town where my roots are and where my family survived and rebuilt after two wars and the death of my grandfather when my dad was just a kid with nothing to live off of but acres of land they had to farm.

    Its not that big an issue, i just wanted some feedback. Yes, im very much into an underground scene I suppose, as we all are. Im just going to stick with it though, I dont want to change it.
