    Pseudonym/pen name

    I'm getting to the point in writing where I feel like one of these could eventually get published (or maybe I'm going crazy), either way, I don't want to use my real name. I would like the first name to be something related somehow to Elisabeth (my middle name), but not Elise. I have no clue on last names, but would like the name in general to not scream "this is not her real name!" any suggestions are helpful, thanks!

    You can also try something with similar meaning. That's what I did.

    I'm not a fan of Elsie Miller, though nothing wrong with it. Ellie Miller.. Too many L's.
    Actually with Miller as the last name, I'm thinking about Lisbeth Miller.
    Call me Cynthia, Angie, or Luna. 22. INFJ. Name nerd.

    Seraphina Juliette Audrey * Evangeline Laetitia * Catalina Ariadne * Valentina Bellatrix Yvaine
    Violetta Leonora Catherine * Isabelle Faustina Clare * Valencia Lyra Amoret * Rosalind Belphoebe
    Clementine Rowena * Annabelle Gwyneira * Vanessa Myfanwy Hannelore * Edelweiss Marian

    Peregrine Cedric * Gavriel Alexander Callum * James Lucias Auberon * Caspian Felix
    Perseus Arthur Flynn * Cassius Jason Salvatore * Damien Alexei Orion
