That's the best my concrete mind can do. Yours are great. Some are too subtle for me. I'm going to pull this up at a dinner party one day.

Argent - Ivanna Dressup, great attempt

Friko - as long as you laughed

Michael - not all of the initial list were great, but it's still good fun.

Happy to see your mind is working in its fine quirky fashion for this post. These are all great names, with my favorite being #10, which just cracks me up for some reason. Speaking of Chastity, if you can be sure to catch the U.S. tv show "Dancing With the Stars" when it returns this season. One of the stars is going to be Chaz (formerly Chastity) Bono. Ought to be interesting.
Portland's most famous drag queen goes by only one name, quite unimaginative compared to this list. Darcelle.
