I was Christopher THE Magician for a long time before I randomly decided to perform "The Google Test" - a.k.a. searching for "Christopher The Magician" on Google. Well, there were pages and pages of other magicians with the same name (and I was nowhere near the top).

So I got REALLY creative...

Christopher T. Magician!

At the time the T still stood for "The." Then one day it dawned on me ... the T doesn't have to stand for "The." And I happened to find a phone number that spelled out "YayTaco" ... so my middle name eventually became "Taco." Most kids now end up remembering me as 'that taco magician,' which is great. Either way, if you google 'Christopher T. Magician' or 'Taco Magician' I'm at the top of the page.

Good times.

Started out in Pittsburgh with a clown act using Hey-You (late 60's)
My hyp and mental show was under my own name, and under the name Mr. Gee (1970's until early 90,s)
When I moved to NJ,(25 years ago), it was just Mr. Gee.
I stopped doing shows for awhile. When I recently decided to get back into it, I found that a magician a few miles away is using Mr. G, and has been promoting it for several yeas.
Rather than cause confusion, and since I feel that I'm starting to promote from scratch again, I'm looking for a new name for kid's & family shows that's easy to remember. My own last name is hard to pronounce, hard to spell correctly, and hard to remember.

I started of as 'Mr Magic', then I went by the title 'Magic & Mystery'. The kids on the estate started calling me 'the magic man' which I was thinking of running with, but later went with 'Amazing Stephen'.

The reason I settled on this name is that Stephen is my actual name and I am amazing. But more importantly, the letter 'A' got me to the top of all search directories, which at the time of the yellow pages, meant I was the first person any client would see and call. It was a business strategy and even though its less of a tool in modern day advertising mediums, it still has its places where my name beginning with the letter 'A' gets me better positioned than all the other entertainers.

I also found a way to make my name funny (Step Hen) which helps the children remember it.

The final reason I choose that name is because the web domain of http://www.amazingstephen.co.uk was available. If I couldn't have purchased the web domain for my name, I probably would not have chosen it.

Did clowning from 94' to 99' ish as Cartoony the Clown, and gave up clowning and just did what I do now. I started doing magic shows as Dan The Man, but switched to my current name, The Amazing Spaghetti, at some point.

Always used Arthur Stead until I started doing kidhows. Needed something more fun and magical, so since my middle name is Willmore, I became Willmore the Wizard.

Started out as Professor Bumblemore and I changed it due to kids not being able to remember or say it, to my
current name The Wacky Wizard. Easy to remember and kids call me the Wacky Lizard after I tell them not to.

If you need fear to enforce your beliefs, then your beliefs are worthless.

Magic by Harris, was my entry easy to go by name.

Sales with a touch of magic, was during my sales meeting and conference programs. Living in Reno, we had lots of conventions going through town.

Mime over matter, was created when I blended my Mime and magic. I actually did some walk arounds as a silent vent. I didn't talk, while my puppets did.

Nearly Normal was created after I bought a key change with that on it. The N's were backwards....which brings us to

Dr. Laugh, which actually came from my audiences. As a counselor I do Laughter programs. Hearing it (Doc Laugh) one time to many, got me to go from the Nearly Normal Magician to Dr. Laugh.

Thanks for all who shared and went into detail about the reason behind the names.

When I was a kid, I opted for Miguel the Magnificent. Ha!

I went through a phase early on with Magic Mike, but dropped that due to it being too common.

Mostly, I have used my name as seen here, but have used character names for particular roles, Professor Phineas T. Presto and Dr. Icarus Zirkus come to mind.

You've made me realize I have used a lot of names!
Charlie (first speaking clown character)
Charles Quincy Maximillian Xavier 3rd (umbrella for more than one character)
Max (silent clown that I have used since 1988)
Quincy Xavier (street performing as a juggler)
Thom Troll (assigned character as part of ren faire street cast)
Thomas Thimbletoes, or just Thimbletoes (started in 1996 as ren faire stage show as jester; still used)
Proverbial Fools (started in 2005 as way to include other performers; still hope to establish as a non-profit)

You reminded me that I forgot my Ren Fest Days.

I was Phoenix, a traveling puppet master.

At my audition, I did some street stuff, including stopping my pulse.

This is fun.

I started as a clown, so I went through some clown names... Muddy Puddles, Puddles the Clown, Professor Puddles B. Fuddles, Professor Peabody Piddlekov, Professor Pitts and now...
