Question time: My name?

Nicole Bogaard asked at Facebook:

Hey Adora! How are you? I have a did you come up with the name Adora Batbrat? -xXx-

My very first video. Presenting the Adora BatBrat to the world.
Pink hair is supercute!

I already had the name BatBrat registered for my company since many years, and that name just emerged in a dream!
I woke up shouting -I will call my company BatBrat!
My husband was all like; What?! Who?!

Many years later I already had a "famous" swedish name "Slynan" (a version of Bitch) but that didn't work well internationally, so I had to make a new one.
Having BatBrat in the name was acctually not what I planned for.

I wanted a name that started with the same letter I have in my natural name; "A".
I also wanted a name that could be recogniced as goth, so when I figured Adora out I needed something cool, and I already loved the name BatBrat so, what the hell, I re-used it! And Adora BatBrat was born.
Personally I love it <3 It feels very "me".
And I might just throw in the answer to my birth name as a bonus:
My birth name is Harriet Ann-Sophie Wimmerstedt.
I didn't take my husbands last name when we married, and I forbid him to change to mine just because I reason I fell in love with Ronny Gärdh and not Ronny Wimmerstedt.
Romantic, right :)


  1. Well, I believe you made a bright decision chosing the name Adora it's both cute and goth. <3

    And btw, you are so cute IRL (in the video) I would think that you aren't a day older than 27. ><

  2. I have a question!
    Well , I'm a big 80's fan :)
    And you were a teenager in the 80's :)
    Was it really much cooler to be a teenager in the 80's then now?
    I really want to know this :D The party's and concerts looked so much cooler then the ones now! :o

  3. So not this then?

  4. Ann Sophie it's a french name ! How come ? I'm from canada and I speak french. If you switch it up to sophie ann it's the name of the vampire queen in true blood. Humm I see what hey did there,,,hihi
