some people have suggested to me that I should use a pen name for my sci-fi novel instead of Conner.

So here's a list so far of possible pen names.

If you have a suggestion please list it.

TESLA - if you don't know tesla u go back to skool nau!!
VENKMAN - ghostbuster ;D
SPANGLER - ghostbuster ;D
AKIRA - last name translated into japanese
EUCLID - Father of Geometry
CAIUS - Pliny the elder - famous mathematicial
James Maxwell - developed the classical electromagnetic theory
Schwarzschild - the man who made connections between magnetic fields light and radio waves
James Watson - one of the three discoverers for DNA double helix

or should I just stick with Conner?

Or do you have any suggestions?

I think the names should form over the lifetime,
it doesn't help much grabbing known people's names.
You can try Riemannian or Lobachevsky to go along the
lines of Euclid, but less known, expecially Riemannian.
Hope my opinion helps somewhat... Cheers! Wink

J. N. S. Kepler. (after Johannes Kepler, obviously; though perhaps less well-known is the fact that Kepler is regarded as writing the first work of science-fiction: "The Somnium")

Ty Brahe. (again, pretty obvious.)

Ptolemy Almagest. (that might be a bit more obscure.)
