Last time I asked where character names come from, to a very illuminating set of replies. So, if you use one or more aliases to get credit for your stories, how did you decide on the one(s) you use?
I will start, I am not really an author but I write reviews as Barron of Ideas. I first used that name when I made posts on the Civilization game site. There were dukes and earls and lords and all kind of nobility so as I wanted to be modest I chose Baron, and of course misspelled it with an extra r. The Ideas came from thinking about what could I be ruler of? I was always suggesting ideas so it seemed right to me. Also, Barren of Ideas as an alternate seemed right when I couldn't think of anything to say.
Browsing through authors I saw a name I can't recall exactly, something like L Sprague Campbell, Jr. which combines two noted Science Fiction authors/editors, (L. Sprague) de Camp and John W. (Campbell, Jr. of Astounding, later Analog). It was not a big surprise to find the author with that name wrote Science Fiction. I suppose that leaves Robert Anson Asimov or Isaac Heinlein available for the next not terribly modest SF writer.
