Cyprian, do you have any distinguishing physical features?   :D

Some say I am ugly, and others say I look like an ox.  ;D

"Ugly Ox Alexander"?  :-\ :-\

"Big Ox Alexander"?  ???

"Cyprian the Ox" sounds like bad Viking name....




Puttin' on my Carrhartts, I gotta work out in the field.

After reading through the many worthy and erudite comments, I can safely say I am empowered but even more confused.  I think I for now I'll use my own name and see if anyone bestows a nickname on me.

Though, if I ever become a Viking, Big Ox Cyprian is in!!!  ;D

Nothing wrong with going with your own name, Cyprian. The alternatives could be a lot worse. I just finished listening to a fellow on one of the Lomax recordings called Crap Eye. Now there's a name.

I'm surprised that nobody has suggested "Cy Alexzander". Your last name will get misspelt a lot, but you'll learn to live with it.

Speaking of Little Willie Littlefield, last Sunday, I saw him tear it up for more than an hour at the Edmonton Folk Festival. For a guy who supposedly retired 6 or 7 years ago (to Amsterdam - I wonder why?), he had the audience in frenzy within the first couple of songs. While his time is getting a bit choppy, he is still a showman at age 76 - turning his right hand over and playing with the backs of his fingers, then playing with his elbow, and finally pulling off a shoe and paying fairly tricky bits using the toe. He was soaking wet by the end of the set, and surrounded by female fans (who had probably never heard of him) wanting an autograph and photo taken with him.

I guess his stage name is not really a problem - with performance, on the stage or elsewhere.
