Don't Worry Mom, I'm Not a Male Porn Star

“Dan” isn’t exactly a unique name. “Fisk” is a bit more rare. When paired together, “Dan Fisk” isn’t a bad combo to set me apart from all the John Smiths of the world. But I do occasionally hear of another Dan Fisk. There is a gynecologist about 20 minutes away that shares my name (lucky me). There is another one that has an account at my bank. There is some college kid with a cheesy movie review show (that "happen" to have the exact same logo I use until I complained). They are out there.

As a musician who tries to make it easy for friends and fans to find me online, I’m fortunate to not have a super common name. If you use Bing or Yahoo to search for “Dan Fisk”, the first couple pages will be mine. However, if you use the search engine that completes 66% of all online searches in the US – Google – I am not the first page that pops up (I’m the second). For now, that top billing goes to… drumroll please…. A gay male porn star.

What ever happen to cool porn names? Dan Fisk?! Really? Does this guy not know what it takes to give yourself a great porn name? Here is the list of the top ten male porn names (from Buzz103.radio.com):

Seymore Butts
Dale DaBone
Ben Dover
Jack Hammer
Chocoball Mukai
Dick Nasty
Jon Dough
Arnold Schwarzenpecker
Long Dong Silver
ManDingo

Now THOSE are great porn names.

Interesting, I didn’t see DAN FISK on that list? Maybe it was number 11. Anyway, I’m just glad I was smart enough to purchase www.danfisk.com many years ago. I’d be seriously bummed out if that URL was covered in naked men.

Here some fun facts to chew on (thanks to www.HowManyOfMe.com):

There are 159,022 people in the U.S. with the first name Dan.
There are 11,260 people in the U.S. with the last name Fisk.

There are 5.1 million people in the U.S. with the first name John.
There are 2.8 million people in the U.S. with the last name Smith.

There is exactly 1 stupid porn star with my name.

The Dan Fisk that owns the twitter handle @danfisk? He is a self described “Freedom 55’r Empty Nest’r with a passion for cooking” from Canada. (my handle is @danfiskmusic)

Don't worry Mom, I'm not a male porn star.
