Don't do this in South Texas, that's my place.
I've been doing this thing the last 2 weeks, when I meet a women I re-name her. An example, I was in Germany last weekend, and I met a girl named sophia or sophi or something like that. I told her "I'm not going to call you that, your parents fucked up, you're a Lisa".
And she thinks I'm weird, I ignore her and game her friends a bit, then when I talk to her I start it with "OK LISA....." by the end up the night, we have a secret thing. If shes talking to someone, I walk up and say "Hey Lisa introduce me" and her friends are like "Lisa, wtf!" and then we smile at each other, we have a secret thing.
Sometimes a women will say "No im not" the times this has happened, I've said fine, then what are you? and they almost always say "I dont know" and then I said "Ok, Lisa".
I never do this until well after the hook, this alone is a good reason to not introduce yourself or ask anyones name cause she says "What's your name?" And I say "Wow! Hold on, I don't even know you, who are you?" And she tells me her name and I will say "No, I mean really, not your name, who ARE you?" and then shes like "blah blah, I dont know, horses, blah blah, techno" and I say, "you are clearly a Lisa"
But I enjoy gaming the whole group, so I end up renaming everyone, if your game is tight enough, it will stick, and I usually go with super hero names like "Magic, Ranger, Sex Ninja or SN for short" and so on. BTW <- those are some that I actually did use this weekend.
