The name was available.. no one had a divine right over it's use.. though if they wanted to protect their IPO:

Google Artemis and it's a page full of everything Artemis..
Google ArtemisFauna and it's a much more direct result..

As already stated, this was not remotely my first choice of name. It came up as available and I obviously had no idea some other person was using same name.

The photographers should be given credit as I'm sure not one of them would book someone without looking at the profile first!

It's their time and money and they will book the person who has the look they want for the shoot. Even if every girl on the site had the same name they will contact the one they want.

To say they would book without looking at portfolios and distance of the model and messaging them first is insulting.

Exactly, well said.
How hard can it be?

I'm with ArtemisFauna on this. It is incredibly irritating having numerous models choose similar or near-identical names (whether deliberately or not


You have to contact site admins about this, so they can create a system that won't accept names that are close to something that is already in use.

Until such a change happens you have to just suck it up.

How on earth are they going to do that Pentti, without keeping out just about everyone who is not currently a member?

Take my name for example. You can't get much closer to Bob than BobB, BobF, BobH, BobN, BobW, BobX and Bobz, who all joined after me but under your suggestion they would not have been able to choose these names. And that's only the 4-letter usernames. Add a 5th or 6th letter and the list of close names grows drastically.

If Artemis had signed up as something like, say, ArtemisFlora or ArtymissFawn I could accept that ArtemisFawna would have grounds to complain as that would suggest passing-off or malicious intent, but I don't really think any of us has grounds to complain if somebody else innocently picks a name similar to ours.

As far as model names go, where using one's real name can be problematic and a made up name needs to be chosen, there is probably even more chance of similarity than when we pick our actual name.

When HoneyB, who has been on the scene for close on ten years, picked her model name I bet she thought she was being original (though she wasn't original as another model called HoneyB preceded her on another site where I think they both started out) but probably Honey_B, Honeybee, Honeybeez and the other models with Honeyb... username variants probably though they were being original too. I doubt any of those Honeyz (ooops there's another one that's close to HoneyB) deliberately set out to copy the one and only HoneyB on here, but no doubt some numpty who hasn't done their homework may well have picked the wrong Honey though that is the fault of the person doing the picking rather than being the fault of either the person they picked or the system.

Let it go! life's too short!
