You know the hotel-guesthouse register where they want your Name, passport number etc...

I'll try to make it a sport to use famous names, just to see if i'll get away with it .
I've registered as, Bill Clinton (when he was all over the news - the monica thing), next day i registered as Monica Lewinsky- no problem either .
I've done a few Bob Dylans, Mick Jagger's, and even a Queen's Elisabeth (passport-nr L-O-N-D-O-N-1).
I've written down R. Tagore, M. Ghandi, Hotel Sucks (in a desperate attempt to get caught- but no ) , and even Lady Dianna did ok (and i'm male).

All things we're handled with characteristic unconcern.
What names do you use ?

I'm fairly discreet with name on the forms that go to the police, though I usually use a bogus occupation. I always like to look through the book register though -- you find surprising numbers of celebs, and guests with interesting occupations travelling through India on the cheap these days

Thats ok Richard, as long as you didn't pee in the sink.

Putting your name down as Saddam Hussein could start of something interesting.

Although if you register as Saddam you're possibly asking to be yanked out of your bed at 3am by a number of heavily armed people..

Dick Hertz.

Variations on this theme include a friend in San Francisco who, during his days as a bike messenger, printed up a slew of fake drivers licenses with the names of famous cyclists. He then disregarded EVERY traffic rule on his bike and amassed a collection of traffic tickets with names like Greg Lemond, Eddy Merckz, Jacques Anquetil, Fausto Coppi, Miguel Indurain, and on and on. He then wallpapered his bathroom with the tickets.

Another variation (am I getting too far off topic here?) comes from when the Thorn Tree started allowing people to register their "handles" permanently. I happened to be online at the precise moment that registration was opened, and being the curious sort, I wondered who else might be logging on at that moment to ensure that noone would hijack their name. Trouble was, there was no member list to peruse, so the only way to find out whether a name was already taken was to attempt to register it yourself. Within minutes I had picked up the titles edwardseco and israeli_girl (a particularly infamous and inflammatory poster at that time). A few minutes later, a poster identifying himsllf as edward_seco or something like that unleashed a furious rant against the registration system, swearing (I think) to never post again!
I petitioned the forum moderator to drop both names. If you're still upset, sorry Mr. Edwards!

Perhaps you could have auctioned all the best names.

I once saw a Canadian Girl book her occupation down as a fishing guide. When I saw here later I commented on it, saying how funny I thought it was, instead of putting the usual boring truth. She didn't laugh, oops, as it really was her occupation.

My passport doesn't say what my occupation is, I know the UK ones used to and the smart thing to do was remain a 'student' forever... lots of discounts!!

I prefer it when the desk clerk fills in the book instead of me having to do the work myself.
