I often see domains and projects with the “-zilla”...
Get off the bandwagon and put down the handbook
Or go with the flow :)

I think none of my threads here got so many answers. :) Looks like the word Pez inspires you all!

@VF – yeah, that’s the point and reason why i started to think about changing it, although in origin i would like to just keep it. Anyway my brand won’t change, that’s for sure, i can’t think in other brand not related with fishes, almost all my work since i started as freelance is related with this concept. And even being a small author (yeah, elite, but small and not known anyway outside AD) i would like to keep the esence of my corporate image.

@CJ – No matter how good it could be, i’ll never name myself with the appleist “i”. I’ve enough to worry about how my works are displayed on Apples, and for that i already have your inbox, you already know… ;)

@Joost – Not dead at all. But maybe sometimes soooo lazy that i can look like a dead one. :P

Changing the name is like going back to square one because nobody will know or remember, so think twice before you proceed ;)

Now now, it’s not all black and white ;) I believe changing your name slightly and not changing your avatar won’t do too much harm.

agreed I didn’t see any fallout when I changed mine and as long as Jesus keeps the Pez part I don’t think he will either.

You may try to combine your first name with the word ‘Pez’. For instance, if your name is Peter = PezPet or WorldofPez. But try not to change your Avatar because it will surely affect you in one way of another.
