Ever Wanted To Get A Legal Name Change?

I mean, I'm very proud of my name, but every once in a while I want to pimp it up a notch. I don't mean by adding a few eyebrow-raising middle names, or doing away with any trace of your original name - simply taking most of your name up to the next level.

I read through a Fark link that some musician in Ohio went before a judge and had his name changed from the rather mundane Daniel Michael Miller to the psychedelic The Dan Miller Experience. Holy Haight-Ashbury, man, that's really far out!, man, and way past groovy.

So I've concocted a new meme, and you're all tagged. I want you to come up with at least one name change for yourself or your avatar per decade from the 1950s through to the new millennium. I'll kick off:
1950's - Frankie Nanuk and the One Season or The Nanukettes
1960's - Seals and Nanuk or The Loving Nanuks
1970's - Bruce Springstein and the Ashbury Nanuks or Nanuk and the Whalers
1980's - Nanuk Goes to Hollywood or Nanuk's Midnight Runners
1990's - Vanilla Ice feat. Nanuk or Porno for Nanuk
2000's - Nine Inch Nanuk or Nanuk's Chemical Romance
There, I've had at it - your turn now.

Don't know if this comes close to what you were thinking - but me typing fingers have given me a name change all on their own! Seems I type so fast (or I'm just so senile - one of the two) that when I type my name it comes out "apt", rather than Pat.

Sooooo - I'm apt!

Or,

I'm an abode (as in: apartment! - sorry couldn't resist!)

That was a hoot. I put my answers on V Agent. It was tough - I am still trying to figure out my porn name...
