Porn star name generators might tell you to take the name of your first pet and your mother's maiden name to come up with a suitable name for your X-rated alter ego.
But when picking their pseudonyms, real life adult movie stars often prefer to opt for a pun, a play on words or a naughty alteration of a Hollywood actor's name.
Take for example the brilliantly named American skin flick stars, Wesley Pipes and Indiana Bones, or the English porn movie legend, Ben Dover.
And not forgetting the iconic Seymore Butts.

But who came up with the wittiest monikers and where are they now?
Here are five male porn stars who adopted the funniest names and where they are now.
Indiana Bones earned multiple award nominations including AVN's Best Male Newcomer and the BBW Awards' Male Performer of the Year two years in a row.
But the porn star with a unique take on the cult film adventurer Indiana Jones has since decided to change the name, believing it is now outdated.
Bones has now rebranded to "Dan Ferrari."
He said the decision was not easy but that “Indiana Bones” didn’t represent the vision for his porn career.
He told AVN: “I’ve grown a lot since I started working in the adult industry and I want my name to reflect that I take my job seriously.”
Small Hands, whose real name is Aaron Thompson, is one of the most popular male porn stars.
He is married to tattooed porn star Joanna Angel and she is credited for the inspiration for his unique name.
Thompson was about to star in his first adult film and was asked to sign documents which included his porn star name when he suddenly thought of the pseudonym Small Hands.
He said: "Joanna has always made fun of me because I have little baby hands for a grown man, and literally I just wrote it down because I couldn’t think of anything else."
To him, the pseudonym was both stupid and hilarious and he figured it wouldn’t get much use after what he assumed would be a one-time porn shoot for his girlfriend’s production company, Burning Angel.
But one thing led to another, and pretty soon Thompson was booking scenes with other big-time performers for a handful of different studios, eventually becoming one of the top male talents in the industry.
Ben Dover, real name Simon Honey, is the star of more 150 porn films and has directed a similar amount.
The 66-year-old has reportedly made over £1 million directing and starring in his films.
He has won a host of awards including the Breakthrough Award at the AVN Awards in 1997.
He also won AVN's Best Gonzo award twice for Ben Dover's End Games in 2002 and Ben Dover's The Booty Bandit in 2006.
He has also been handed a Lifetime Achievement Award at the UK Adult Film Awards.
A talented drummer these days he makes special guest appearances for the Guns N Roses tribute band Guns 2 Roses.
He was formerly married to ex-porn star Linzi Drew with whom he has a son, Outnumbered star Tyger Drew-Honey.
Honey revealed he was battling bladder cancer back in 2017.
Seymore Butts is an actor and director who specialises in the gonzo genre of pornography.
Butts is credited with being one of the first to develop the gonzo genre which places the viewer directly into the scene.
He starred in Buttman in the late 1980s before adopting the name Seymore Butts as a pseudonym for his own porn films.
He won the Best Gonzo Series at the 1999 and 2000 AVN Awards.
He has since taken part in reality shows including Showtime's Family Business and he has also produced a Do-It-Yourself Porn guide for adult film aspiring directors.
Wesley Pipes is an award winning retired icon of the porn industry and star of hundreds of porn films.
Real name Wesley Lawrence, he entered the adult film industry in 1998 and used his stage name as a reference to top Hollywood actor Wesley Snipes.
In 2009 he was inducted into the Hall of Fame of Urban X Awards.
AVN Awards also inducted him into its Hall of Fame in 2015.
