How did you choose your artist or band name?

How did you choose your artist or band name? 


I must admit, I saw a similar question to this on a CDbaby's Facebook post.  But I thought it was such a fun question and one that would also be pretty interesting to know about Songstuff members and how they got their artists names or band names. 


And to take this a little farther:


For those that have mixed genre songs, do you use different names?


If you use multiple names, what was your reasoning behind doing so?  Has multiple names been beneficial or a pain to manage and promote?

I chose Talk To Bears because:


1) I like bears

2) It's a line from a Captain Beefheart song (Wildlife) I always liked 

3) I've long thought that if bears could talk, they'd be rather sardonic and biting in their humor, my lyrics tend to lean in that direction.

Oh wow. A long time ago for my last actual band name.


I remember spending ages coming up with lists of potential names. So many were crap or plain funny. Some were interesting, quirky, or off the wall. Some I loved but didn't think they suited. One I remember my drummer, Richard, coming up with was "Simon Snodgrass and his Simply Amazing Snowshoe". Great use of alliteration, but... I'm not sure mushrooms weren't involved. ;) Different days.
