A Note of Explanation on Pseudonyms

As a matter of protocol, the students in Social Research: Qualitative Methods assigned every interviewee a pseudonym. The pseudonyms were created by taking a first name from the National Hurricane Center name list of 2003 and a last name from the Modern Library's list of favorite authors. We regarded this as a reasonable courtesy since the Adulting Manual is not something that had been made before, so interviewees could not be entirely certain how their interviews would figure into the finished product.


After the first draft of the Adulting Manual was complete, we contacted interviewees to make sure they could see the finished product. Many of them liked their pseudonyms and agreed to keep them, and a few asked to use their real names. Some elected to keep their biographies private. We feel that the information here, whether listed pseudonymously or using real names, gives enough of a snapshot of each interviewee for readers to see the true breadth of people who offered advice and whose interviews made this Adulting Manual possible in the first place.
