Find out your Blues Name

  1. I 'borrowed' this from another site..

    Take the FIRST letter of your FIRST name:
    A=Travelin'
    B=Ramblin'
    C=Smokin'
    D=Cryin'
    E=Blind
    F=Walkin'
    G=Drinkin'
    H=Blue
    I=Muddy
    J=Fat
    K=Crippled
    L=Stumpy
    M=Stumblin'
    N=Lyin'
    O=Cheatin'
    P=Reverend
    Q=Big
    R=Preachin'
    S=Skinny
    T=Tall
    U=Toothless
    V=Screamin'
    W=Bleedin'
    X=Incontinent*
    Y=Wailin'
    Z=Papa (or Mama)
    *If you're unfortunate to have first name starting with "X" you're also unfortunate enough to have a blues name descriptor like "Incontinent"

    Now take the THIRD letter of your FIRST name:
    A=Peg Leg
    B=Lighnin'
    C=Willie
    D=Joe
    E=Red
    F=Blue
    G=Frog
    H=Memphis
    I=Teeth
    J=Johnny
    K=Bobby
    L=Preacher-Man
    M=Riley
    N=Shem
    O=Cornbread
    P=Daddy
    Q=Smoky
    R=Deacon
    S=Lemon
    T=Legs
    U=Chops
    V=Jack
    W=Moses
    X=Albert
    Y=B.B.
    Z=Sack

    And now........the fourth letter of your LAST NAME
    A=Nelson
    B=King
    C=Hopkins
    D=Bland
    E=Robinson
    F=Waters
    G=Jones
    H=Johnson
    I=Watkins
    J=Taylor
    K=Rivers
    L=Nash
    M=Hill
    N=Waller
    O=Domino
    P=Stutts
    Q=Franklin
    R=Raines
    S=Stills
    T=Shaw
    U=Thompson
    V=Houston
    W=Cash
    X=Detroit
    Y=Black
    Z=Norman

    Now you have your blues name!
    Example: John Smith is now FAT MEMPHIS SHAW

    ***BONUS TITLES***
    *If you've EVER been to church with a hangover, or still drunk, in the same clothes from Saturday night, add the "Preacher" "Preacher-Man" or "Preachin'" to the beginning of your blues name if it isn't already included. If Joh Smith ever want to church with a hangover, he can be called "PREACHIN FAT MEMPHIS SHAW"
    *If your name has a numeral designation (I, III, IV, etc) or a professional designation (DDS, PhD, Esq, etc) add "Blue" to the beginning of your name if it isn't already included. If John Smith is a Doctor, he can be "BLUE FAT MEMPHIS SHAW"
    *If you're already a "Junior" incorporate that at the end of your news Blues Name......If John Smith is a Junior, he's now FAT MEMPHIS SHAW JUNIOR
