Translate into more work?

Edit: I have no names or examples to give as it was just a question.

My question was derived by my curiosity around the clever names we all use and I was wondering if a more salacious name indeed attracts more work.

My profile name comes from the two espalier pear trees on my studio.

I look at the model's presence, not at her name. It makes no difference to me.

A name is part of the branding and usually indicates what the seller is selling, so I would expect a photographer who has a name along the lines of "iluvbigboobies" would have no problem getting a model who is aspiring to be the next Penthouse Pet but struggle to book a model who aspires to be in Vogue.
On the same level a model with the name "ihavebigboobies" would probably be flooded with offers from photographers looking for a Penthouse styled shoot but struggle to be taken seriously by a high end fashion photographer.
Whether that leads to more work or not would depend wholly on whether the model/photographer is smart enough to market themselves to their respective markets- or not.

edit- doh i'm such a serious old fart!

I just checked Sendu. None of the models are named Slutty. Can you give us some examples?

Hm, no idea.

My name was Sophia Bendz (which is kinda slutty, right?), but for some reason, MM wouldn't let me use that, so it turned in to Sophia Be. So now I'll never know sad

Jealous.

I've shot with a couple who had "sexy" names, but given the sort of thing I shoot, they tend not to be interested in me.

things like xxsexychickxxx are obviously pointless ..

there's a couple of well known Glamour models with
fairly provocative sounding names .. apparently real' in the uk .

although there workload  probably has more to do with there looks than
there names big_smile

Truth:
I find it a turnoff.

More truth:
If your name is Slurpy McButter or Kornpone Katie, I reserve the right to photograph you in a namesake theme shoot. Do not be surprised at this request. It's an obvious next step in your evolution as a llama. Be you. Own it.

frankly I don't find "ask your mom" very slutty, maybe you were going for provocative?

Having a porny or "cutesey" username (like Princess Kittenfluffs) makes me click "next".

Come to think of it, I do the same thing on dating sites.
