        Hey there! Welcome to my awesome pen name shop. First of, if you don't know what a pen name is, its a name used by authors  that is usually not there real name. For example, the author of the Nancy Drew books is Carolyn Keen. That is not the authors real name ( there are actually several  authors of the Nancy Drew series who all write under this pen name).
       Anyway, this shop here allows you to create your own pen name for when you write stories here on Scholastic. . All you do is answer a few questions, and I'll give you a pen name based on your answers. If your not satisfied, just let me know!
 
Questions:
 
What is your favorite Genre (type) of book?
 
What is your favorite color?
 
Male of Female?
 
What is your favorite hobby?
 
What type of pen name do you want?
ex.: Scary, masculine, pretty, city feel, country feel, mysterious,
silly, etc.
 
Thank you!

Well here are a few pen names I came up with based on your answers:
 
Sybill Narsetti
 
Marliyn Spruce
 
Rayne  Rosen
 
Tuscana  Mayze
 
If you are not satisfied, just let me know. I tried to make i\the names have an earthy modern feel. If you do choose one of these, when signing  story with it, please put a small   ` at the end of it so others know it is not your real name. Example: Tuscana Mayze`.  This is just a suggestion if you do this on scholastic. Thanks.
 
P.S. Telling others about my shop is the greatest thanks you can give.

Hmmmmm..... ummmm...... well, here are some suggestions:
 
Raven Porter
 
Marilla Grenich
 
 L. Stophola
 
Tori Blanick
 
 
I had to think for a bit on these. I tried to give each name a mysterious  feel, and ( this may sound like a stereotype) because you said you like periwinkle, I tried to make it slightly girly. By the way, the initial "L." in the name above  is a spot for you to imagine a name. If readers do not know the first name, it makes it a bit mysterious..... .
If you are not satisfied with these names, please let me know.  If you do decide to use one of these pen names, I suggest you do it like this:  ex. Tori Blanick` , using a small apostrophe at the end. This is suggested for the Scholastic boards. It is your choice to use that symbol elsewhere.

No I do not know the meaning of Jardin Fluer. Very cool anyway. What does it mean?
 
P.S. This is just a guess, but is it French.

Jardin is 'garden' in Spanish, and Fluer is 'flower' in French, so it means 'Garden flower.' Pretty cool, huh?

Ok Writer2, lets see here:
 
Jauqulin Dane
 
Anone Amus
 
Orra  Bilcoal
 
S. Green
 
Wow, I've been getting alot of people interested in mysterious names. I wanted to give you some mysterious name, and at the same time, make it a bit mystical (due to the fact you like fantasy). As in above posts, when using a pen name on scholastic boards, I suggest you do it with a small apostrephe (ex. Anone Amus`) at the end of the name. This is to show its not your real name. If you are not satisfied, please let me know.
P.S. The greatest thanks you can give is to tell others about my shop!

At first I wasn't too keen on the idea of doing girlie names ( being a devoted tomboy). It actually turned out to be kind of fun. If you are not satisfied with any of these, please let me know. I suggest that when using a pen name on the scholastic boards, you  put an apostrophe at the end of the name so others know its not your real one.

Thank you very much!
 
I hope this doesn't seem rude, but I was wondering if I could combine two of the names:
 
Angela DeGrange/Angela Stone?
 
If not, it's no problem! ^_^
 
Thank you once more!

Except for Lacie Henderson. I like the first name, but my least fave person has the last name Henderson. But you didn't know, so thanks anyway!
 
SaraBeth Winters...sounds romantic. LOL.
