Hearing about Numerology among the Chinese viz the Olympics got me to musing about "Namerology" as revealed by ourselves on the Internet.
In an era where it's so easy to go ego-surfing, it 's natural to start wondering if those who are "name twins" share anything more than the obvious correlates. This goes double if you think your own first and last is not entirely common.
Over the years, I adopted assorted handles and pen names for various aims, but now it's starting to seem like a good idea to add a twist to your sig if you want a high ratio of signal to noise around a specific identity. Unless you want the "real" you to live 10 pages deep in the list of Google hits, your primary name online needs to make a mark of some kind.
