What's Your Criminal Name?
by Zoe Samuel

We go by a lot of names, but have you ever thought about your outlaw name? While all of us can't be named Billy the Kid, you actually can have a name that's just as cool. You might not have the same sort of gunslinging skill the outlaws of the past had, but you can practice your quick draw while answering the outlaw quiz questions. Put your hand in your holster and get ready to duel at dawn!

You might be the kind of person who would prefer to knock off a stagecoach, or you might be the type who prefers to keep the peace. Either way, you need a name that matches your Wild West spirit! It doesn't even matter if you can pull off a bank heist while riding bareback on a horse. You have more Wild West skills than you give yourself credit for having! Tell us all about them, and we'll make sure you get an outlaw name that tells the world to respect or fear you!

Pony up to the table and put on your fearless hat! Share your wildest outlaw fantasies with us, and we'll give you a snazzy new name. Making your coworkers call you that name is totally up to you, but we highly recommend it.
