    i have gotta change what i write due to heat from the law and i came up with a new name and started sketching out a few handstyles... i got pretty happy with it and so i thought i better check out wether some one else already had the name... i asked around and found out that there is someone with the same name...
    so if i add a '2' or a 'the 2nd' or something on the end does it that i am biting their name or not??? i always see people who have the same name but with different suffixes...

    can y'all help???
    Peace and thankz

    With so many graff writers it's kinda hard to find a name that no one uses. Back in the day when you bit some bodys tag it was on...whoever got the best of the fight kept the tag..now u have 50 catz with the same name. So if you want to have a different name add a digit or letter it's up to you

    basically you arent gonna find a name that someone already doesnt have...........so adda # or an extra letter or something , but also just try to rearrange the placement of the letters , like if you wrote 'kamer' you could switch it up and write 'maker' or 'ramek' .........then again you can just say fuck it and write it anyhow

    be unique...

    you could argue that as long as your scribble and throwie are different from someone with the same word you'll still be recognized... but I think a big part of our whole mission is to be an individual...
    I say try keeping the letters you like and rearrange them.... dont be 2, 3, or 29....be one!

    all the "easy" names to think of are taken, but there's still a good amount that aren't taken. just think hard on the subject and you'll come up with something.

    Whatever's clever I say. If someone already has it, battle him for it (if your up to it.) If not then like the other people in here already said change it up you'd be surprised with what you can come up with.
    Another meaningless thread here to take up valuable bandwidth. :lol:

    it cant be too hard to come up with an original name...just think, use words from company brands if you have to (tide, zest, spam, etc). :king:

    write something nobody else would consider writing. it's the easiest way to think of one. write names with "hard" letters.

    I thought my name was somewhat unused but then I saw a freight with it on and someone one this site has the name. I guess most names are taken. Whatever, who cares, why did I write this?

    You should write Calamari

    just think about how many words there are in all the languages on the planet... every one of those taken? yeah right.
    and who says these words have to be english? or even actually say anything?
    there are plenty left.
