What’s in a name?

I’ve been contemplating for a while now, changing my stage name. I’ve not been entirely happy with it for a while as I just felt it wasn’t quite me or effective enough to describe my character or acts.

I had almost decided on a new name but after speaking with a well known performer, who offered loads of advice and guidance, I decided that I was just going to edit my name and keep the uniqueness of it as I had been working on establishing myself and branding that image and I had noticed that it was catching and people were beginning to recognise it. So thinking back, it was silly to try and use a rather generic name and probably start from scratch and probably even get lost in the midst of things.

It was so helpful to get another performers thoughts and perspective on it, one that has been in the industry for some time and had a unique and well established image and brand as a performer.

SO from now on, I will be changing and updating everything to be known as Rose Desire.

No one really understood the play on words of Desire-Belle for Desirable, and I thought that if I have to explain it to everyone, then it isn’t really doing its job and I should just stick to something that was effective of its uniqueness and just use Desire. It seems more to the point and less of a (confusing) mouthful!

I’m rather happy with my new, adjusted name, one that I’ll be working with from now on.

I will be making the changes and updates to my website and othet areas in the next few days.
