Fun: Nickname Generators

There's a whole list of processes to make up a trade name. Here's the list that I know of so far. The first part of the list I got from a Palm Pilot program ("Sticks and Stones"). You enter in this info:
  1. First/Forename (FIRST)
  2. Middle Name (MIDDLE)
  3. Last/Surname (LAST)
  4. Mother's Maiden Name (MAID)
  5. First pet's name (PET)
  6. Favorite animal (ANIMAL)
  7. Town of birth (TOWN)
  8. Street/Area Name (STREET)
Conclusions from the above data:
  1. Star Wars Name = First syllable of (LAST + FIRST + MAID + TOWN)
  2. Burlesque Name = PET + MAID
  3. Soap Opera Name = MIDDLE + STREET
  4. Drag Queen Name = ANIMAL + MAID
Here are some other 'nickname' options that I've heard about. I'm not sure what the existing formulas are:
  1. Gangsta name (e.g. DJ Styxz)
  2. Pirate Name (e.g. Styxbeard)
  3. (Secret) Indian name (e.g. Dances with Noodles)
Suggestions for formulas, or other categories, are welcome.
