The Ramones is also called: Neuveaux Bubblegum Band with Guts
Joey Ramone referred to the band as this. He was referring to the fact that while pundits labeled the Ramones as a punk band, the Ramones were inspired by 60s "bubblegum" and added a modern, tougher, ballsier element to the mix.

Ok guys, Acquisotic comes from Acquiring Knowledge, Inquisitive and Exotic by Nature. That name was just created out of thin air, it's not in a dictionary. Bruce Gombrelli is the founder of the band, which is essentially just him. Dunno where those other names came from. Even his website says this.

Pseudonyms -> Latest

Daisy Aertbelien
used to be: Sarah Bettens
There is a Belgian band called Clement Peerens Explosition and everyone has a character with an accompanying name. Sarah did a song with them, "Beats of Love", back in 1995. Her character's back story was that she was the member of another member. And her character's name was Daisy Aertbelien. As far as I know, she has not made another appearance. But Sarah and another member of CPeX, Bart Peeters, are judges together on the Belgian show, The Best Singer-Songwriter of Flanders (DBSSVV).
