It's not that bad. I mean, if I was a kid and I didn't know Crystal was a girl's name associated with a particular undignifistaed occupation, I'd have the following associations:orthonorm said:*wiping effluvia from computer screen*Volnutt said:The convert names thread reminded me of something. When I was a kid I wanted to change my name to Crystal (I thought it was a boy's name for some reason).
This is the sorta thing you wait a year or two to tell your shrink.
EDIT: Remember how I said I never call people by whatever LARPing names they use in RL? Well, Crystal baby, since this was this wish of young and sincere child:
Crystals give you power in video games.
Crystals probably give you power in real life. It's not like the good folks at Naughty Dog and Squaresoft would just make that up right?
Crystals have cool shapes.
Crystals are shiny.
Salt is a crystal, and it makes food delicious.
Sugar is a crystal, and it makes food delicious.
Superman's home planet is covered in crystal (I know I've ranted against this before, but my earliest exposure to Superman was all post-crisis stuff sadly) and Superman is awesome.
Of course, I'm not ruling "Volnutt has aspired to be a stripper since childhood" out of the question., in which case he probably ought to seek some therapy.
