The Australian Burlesque Name Registry
This is a registry of names already in use across Australia for burlesque/variety show performance.
You can list your burlesque name and details by using the form at the bottom of this page. Listing your stage name on the Australian Burlesque Name Registry does not provide you with legal protection, however please make sure your information is correct and true, and can be proved if contacted by another burlesque performer- including the date of first use.
If you are just starting out in performance and trying to choose a burlesque name, it is advised that you also check to see if a name is in use by using Google search and facebook search. It may already be in use by a major burlesque performer in another country, which should be a consideration when choosing names as that particular performer may choose to tour to Australia one day.
To register, you must have a valid website or facebook fanpage address. Those who don't will be removed from the register. This is to prevent 'holding' or 'reserving' of stage names for future use. If you are serious about using the name for stage performance you should be able to back it up with networking tools such as these.
We also advise creating yourself an email address that is specifically for your stage persona interactions such as 'firstname.lastname@example.org' as this register is available to the public eye. If you use your personal email address, the information may be used to trace your personal name which you may not necessarily want the public to know.
If you make a mistake with your entry, please contact email@example.com with the details you require to be edited.
