Author Topic: Punting Names  (Read 2349 times)

I am interested to see the relative usage of the above types of punting names. In addition, any thoughts on the lack of safety of using the same name as your punting name for this site and/or adultwork are welcome. Please note poll votes are anonymous. If I have missed a needed category, please state what that category is.

For the purpose of this poll I define:

Punting name - the handle which you expect service providers to call you during your contact with them. If multiple names are used: split the names into their categories, weighting them according to their relative use and select the category of the greatest weight (this as opposed to the category which the most commonly used one belongs to).

Real name - a first name (possibly accompanied by a surname and/or middle name). The first name (and, if applicable, middle name) should be recognised first names. The surname (if applicable) should be a recognised surname. Examples: Steve, John Johnson, Tom. NOT: Master, Alex Hidden.


For service providers:

What approximate proportion of the names clients give you do you expect to be in each of the above categories?

Mainly a guys name who used to work with me.  Use the same profile name for here and AW.  Not too bothered about safety issues, I'm single at the moment so use my own phone number as well.

I just use my real first name. How do they know I'm not making it up? And I've no reason to give them my surname.

However, now you've mentioned it, I might start calling myself "Terrance Phallic" just to be on the safe side.


This poll is pointless the most silliest thread i have ever seen..in the punting world it should be all about discretion who cares who is called what? its a business transaction..  some times good some times bad..

I would think that having a different punting name and AW log in is essential, likewise a stealth phone.

I'm not sure what constitutes a "real name unrelated to me" as apart from a totally made up one. There must be lots of guys out there who actually have the same first and last as my punting name. I find that having an alias is very useful in so many ways. I was on a punting trip the other week though and when asked my name in a shop gave my alias by mistake! oops

Fake name.. and I dont tend to give any details about what I do either

But then again I have also dated and how relationships with Women who dont know my real name or occupation either

Might have even split up a married couple with an affair for 18 months with a married women who didnt know my real name

I guess that makes bit of a bastard but hey

Thank-you for the responses so far. I am surprised by the proportion that use a name that is not real, but I think perhaps that is due to confusion over my definition of a real name:

As in the definition and examples given, a real name unrelated to me would be a name whose components are recognised names (as opposed to titles, nouns that are not names or similar). 'John Smith' would fall in this category, provided that you are not called John Smith, you do not know someone by the name John Smith and you have not chosen the name after a character called John Smith in literature or film. A name which is not real is anything whose components are not recognised names. For example, if you asked to be called toolboy55 by service providers, that would not be considered a real name. Apologies for the confusion.

Is this intended as 'retribution' for pointing out that your question in another thread was easily answerable by a search?

I have a random profile name on AW that means nothing.

I use a different first name when contacting WG's.

My user name on here is completely different again and actually is just an abbreviation of The Devils Advocat 666, not my initials.

[1].  No...it's not;

[2].  It's either the silliest or the most silly - but not the most silliest...a very poor, chavvy error...4/10...;

[3].  You have chosen a nickname (and the associated avatar) of a fictional character often perceived as being the embodiment of gangster machismo...entirely in keeping with the sort of mistake a female may make should she be desperately seeking to hoodwink male comrades that she is also male...;

[4].  BTW, it's spelt Tony Montana, not Montanna...oddly enough, most people know how to spell the name of their heroes...;

[5].  Lonmir started this thread, and I notice that you had a pop at Lonmir yesterday on this thread (  https://www.ukpunting.com/index.php?topic=12408.0 ) when he quite rightly pointed out that you were too fucking bone-idle (my words, not Lonmir's) to search for something yourself;

Welcome to UKP... :hi:

I'd have thought is fairly obvious for most cases. But why do you want to know?

Thanks for the clarification, I voted for the wrong one!  :rolleyes:

I use the John Smith type. (Not my real, or made up name!!!)

Offline Jerboa

If you mean the name I use when seeing a WG, I use my real first name, This Is punting and we're not Jason Bourne.  :rolleyes:

Offline smiths

I make everything up, or do i, dis-information is good on this my view.

Don't hold back James say what you think. LOL

As stated, am I interested in seeing what type of name people use and how they arrive at it. I'd disagree that it is obvious: I was expecting a far higher proportion to respond that they used real names, but perhaps this is due to the confusion of what I defined as a real name. I was also expecting a far greater proportion just to use their first name; I thought that would be the highest category by a significant margin.

Offline haystacks79

I use my real first name, I'd soon forget if I tried to pretend to be someone else.
