Will you keep your name from this term?

I've been thinking about this a bit as the end of term nears, I've noticed a few posts on a few blogs as well so I thought I'd ask here to see how everyone else feels. Will you be keeping your name and persona from this term for next term?

I would like to keep mine but if every one wants to start over we can do that too! ;)

I'm curious to know if the 2nd (third?) years for this swap changed names for HSKS4?

I've almost decided that I will keep this persona. I worked out I can be completely anonymous next time by posting anonymous comments at my partner's blog, and by sending e-cards instead of e-mails. Or I could even set up a new e-mail address ('Your Swap Partner@****.com'). That way it won't matter if anyone remembers who I am in real life (and Ravelry Life too!!). I like being Emma Wigworthy!

I am changing. I was sorted into 3 different houses so I will be changing houses too. Not telling which one, but I am very excited. :)

I like being Cassandra Puddlemere, myself, but I may be switching houses and may want to surprise the rest of you. That said a certain camaraderie has built up between everyone in the swap already and it would stink to start over. I'll have to think on it more

Next term will not be a secret swap, so hiding your identity will not be a real concern. I think we'll leave the secret part optional, what do you think?

Also, Millicient, this is the first swap in which the swappers had Potter names. Before everyone used their Muggle names.

If I join and if I stay in the same house, I would want to keep the same name. But if I am put in a different house, I think I would want to switch names/personas.

Jenean,
So if the next swap isn't going to be secret we won't be using our potter identities?

I'll be keeping my name--I like it too much to change. =)

I think the secret part means that we can still use our Potter names, but we can disclose who we are on Ravelry, etc. if we like. =)

Everyone will be allowed to maintain their current Potter identity and/or blog OR change to an new Potter identity/blog OR use personal identities/blogs. If the swap is not secret everyone will know who their spoiler/spoilee is and opening communicate. Hopefully it will cause a little less confusion, although I personally have enjoyed the secret part.

I think I will keep mine, if possible

Well I am going to keep mine but it is ok they know who I really am ;) I like the whole name thing. I can understand the confusion though!

I too would like to keep my same "Potter" identity. It has been great fun. It would make it easier for blogging purposes too.
