Name change

Turns out...there is another Barbara Rappaport..an actress with my exact spelling and everything. Small world. If you google me...her movie" Tin Man" and my movie " Double Tap"..both pull up. course...I was not acting in 86:)

I'm thinking about changing my name to Eilene Rappaport

What do you think?

Suggestions,.....

Trojan said...

mike said...

Prudence?

Kate Michele said...

I think you should go with something more funkier.... But I just don't know what yet, let me sleep on it.... lol..... Something like Allegra Rappaport, now i know its a drug name but it does have a ring to it no? I'll keep thinking....

Gone Home said...

Allegra Rapa Port

It's exotic. Besides, all the cool actresses have three names these days :)

BTExpress said...

How about Babs?

Trojan said...

But i'm too white to pull of allegra...

what about chastity? ha-ha kidding!

Thought about Babs, I go by Babs..but that sounds like I'm a 15 yr old teeny bopper...

Crap!

Since free advice is worth what you pay.....

I like Jill. I like Beth. I like Ann(e). On syllable names just seem to have a little more pop.

If you want two syllables: Molly, Maggie, Megan, Robin, Robyn, Karen, Kathy, Katie.

This is a chance to reinvent yourself. Pick a couple of names and do a little etymology. Find a name that works with the persona you project (or want to project).

Where did Eilene come from? Middle name? ...er jes' something you like?

Brandon Frasier was a partier back at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle. He and ai (and maaany other fools) partied like fools during his last 2 years of college. (he's an ass now, but damned, he was funny back then)

WE TRIED to get him to change his name to Bart, Wally, or something stoopid like that... Oh well. We tried. Bastard still made it big.

Try anagrams... some folks take their original name and play with it, making a new name from the old...

aroo?

PlaysByEar said...

Anagrams for Barbara:

A BAR BRA
ARAB BAR
ARAB BRA

Arab Bra Rappaport?

Glibbidy said...

why change it? I think that you have a great name. Eliene is nice, is that your middle name?
You could reduce Babs to something like BB or just B.

Trojan said...

B Eileen Rappaport?

Trojan said...

Or maybe Barbara Eilene

dayoldfish said...

Oh I wanna play, my new name will be Craven Morehead

Or you could do what everyeone else on IMDB does and have the designator 2, since she was the first one to be published on the site. When you have more credits than she does you will be designated as one.

Rafael said...

Double tap? I like Barbara Eilene, either that or Cameron

MB said...

Jesus People!! Why can't anyone come up with a rational, easy solution. Just hire someone to "take out" the other Barbara Rappaport and you won't have to worry about changing your name.

I can't believe no one thought of this, it seems so much easier to me.

Trojan said...

you guys crack me up....

BH said...

What's your middle name? Just add it in there so you can be like Catherine Zeta Jones or some such nonsense.

Trojan said...

Barbara Eilene Rappaport? Damn that is a biggen.

What about Eilie?( eyelie)

Ok maybe that is stupid. I should go with my hash name..

Trojanwhore.

LOL

Pimp Doggie Dawg said...

when i hear the name Eilene, i think of that one legged waitress at IHOPs, her friend is EILIENE, she has one leg shorter than the other.

this other barbara, she good?

if so, maybe you could ride on her curttails, or she can ride on yours???

shouldn't you ask your agent--just seems like an industry question to me.

oh my 2 cents pick something short, for when you have to sign a bunch of autographs

dayoldfish said...

Barbara E Rapport ot or use the first name Naomi, since it is I moan backwards

Asian Princess said...

I say go with the full name, Barbara Eilene Rappaport. Be yourself.

Trojan said...

Ok....That is also the easier answer:)

Trojan said...

Thanks all you guys for your feedback...Heck if i know what I'm doing...i'm just doing:)

Gone Home said...

Fossie Rappaport ;)

PlaysByEar said...

Hmmm.. I kind of like Prudence now.

DBDAFMH3 said...

hey any word on Cheaper

Trojan said...

DBD...yeah i have the dates. email me offline....

mini driver wannabe said...

I didn't think it was stupid. the Eilie one. you could definately pull off Eilie Rappaport.

then when the schmo's pronounce it wrong you can go all diva--if your feeling particularly diva-licious.

Rafael said...

Go with the Hash name.
