Module 1 Lesson 8.1 What do I call myself?
Is changing your name important? Many entertainers use a codename or a stage name for a show. If it explains your personality and it brings smile to people’s faces then your name is cool. However, there are some important things to consider in choosing a name.
1) It is important that your website name matches your stage name.
2) Check with muggles because they respond differently.
3) We have 9 pages with all sorts of names that you can download.
4) Also make sure that no other entertainer is using the same name.
