I was given mine... Mandala for the obvious symbolic reasons and Pynqi because I'm girly and curvy. Haha. Pynqi like Pinky but spelled exotic because I have a penchant for indian food. Haha. I was dubbed. =D
Mine is my burlesque name. I used the name Harlow online and as a writing pseudonym for competitions for a while and so it kind of stuck as my stage name. Then I needed to extend it for burlesque so I chose "Sin Cyr" as a play on the name "Lili St. Cyr" who is a famous burlesque dancer. Also "Sin Cyr" sounds like "sincere" so it is a multiple pun haha.
think of your personallity, or physical characteristics...think of things that make you smile, things that you find spiritual, think of things that TRUELY represent you. It's important to pick something that means something to you, but also brings attention to you on that alone.....personal, but personable too.
