I need a burlesque name!

I'm currently doing a beginners burlesque course, and part of that is building a character. I can do character, but names have always been a stumbling block (ask my roleplaying group!) To start us off we picked names from a bag to spur our creativity. Our instructor said we could change it if we didn't like it, and mine doesn't really fit me (Miss Glitter Gold).

I've found a few blog posts on the subject, but all the links to full articles seem to be broken. And the wayback machine has nothing. So I turn to you CO&K!

I'm after something spooky, gothy or vampire-esque. But I want to keep the playful side too (so no "Mistress Raven of Pain")

I'm taken by "Miss Twilight Sparkle" (it's a My Little Pony, and a vampire joke), but that might seem a bit lame to someone not in the know.

SpookyPoodle is taken, and we have a local Miss Pandora Box. Any opther thoughts guys and gals?

I feel a bit young to be using madam. Plus here in the UK a "madam" is a slang term for a brothel owner!

Something cheeky is good though. But I'll avoid the "von". Glamour Advocate recommends avoiding cliches like Kitten, Kitty, Vixen, Honey, Von, Lux or Deluxe, Lola, de Ville, Violette, Pinky, Femme or Belle.

Was going to suggest Candy Pop, but that does seem a bit too girly.... how about a 'bond girl' themed name, like Pussy Galore or Solitaire , like Solitaire Sparkles.

Or Fanny Tastic (sorry I know this is a bit crude, but you get the idea) :0)
sounds silly but there is a really nice ice cream I get called Cherry Licious, which is a lovely name!!

K/x

hmmmm, I'm sure I recieved the kind of email where you use the name of your first pet and add something etc to get your stripper name. I'll see if I can find it.

OK, I found it.... see below
