If you look at the big guns, all the DJs use their full name unless they are part of a duo/trio. A few exceptions to the rule (so to speak) but for the most part the best DJs just use their full name.

I only didn't go with my full name because I really didn't feel like getting crap for my last name and couldn't come up with a decent 'stage' surname haha

^^ You could twist your surname around a bit.. for instance Sam La More's real name is Sam Littlemore..

Either that, or just come up with an alias, like Bob Sinclar or Martin Solveig. Thats not their real names.

Sasha and Alex are the same name.
Most people from Russia for example who are called Sasha, call themselves Alex.

I really like DJ names that are either a short, easy to remember single name (like Axwell, Sasha, Goodwill, Stonebridge) or surnames (real or otherwise) that are easy to remember yet sound cool - I think Mark Dynamix is my favourite. Surnames that are hard to pronounce like Garraud, Fanciulli, Yoji Biomenanika (or whatever it is) etc are not so great - its difficult for people to remember your name when they cant spell it!

If you have just your first name when you are starting out you need to be careful that there isnt someone more well known with the same dj name - could be a problem!

totally agree with DJ Bobo, that is truly dreadful

i once got handed what later become known as the bag of comedy flyers outside a club in london - at one gig were both DJ Lay-Z and Ruff Sqwad

Steve Strawberry is terrible

DJ Ironic is a hopeless attempt to be funny (spotted in ad for Eden, San Antonio, Ibiza)

Ryan Shaw is a good example of when not to use your real name - lame as.

Judge Jules ? Can't quite decide on that one

and my favourite one ever....
