Ever been curious how to come up with a DJ name? Music publicist and Sirius XM radio host Eric Alper has an easy solution: Just mash together “DJ” and your biggest fear, and see how it sounds.
Afraid of spiders? DJ Spiders. Afraid of heights? DJ Heights. Afraid of the inexorable march of time that will eventually claim us all? Well, you get the idea. Alper tweeted out the DJ name formula on Friday, and it’s generated some hilarious responses.
Your DJ name is "DJ" + your biggest fear. Who are you?

Let it never be said that people aren’t willing to open themselves up on Twitter. Some, in fact, were willing to divulge their deepest, darkest fears, provided it sounded good enough as a DJ name. There was one glaring omission, however: “DJ Can’t Think Of A Good Joke For This Trending Tweet.”
