Differentiating Similarly Named Pornstars *** Case Study #1: Missy Stone vs. Misty Stone

0915 header
Some weeks back, Alison informed us that Raylene had come out of retirement and returned to porn. I had difficulty segregating Raylene from Rayveness and (upon further thought) Raylin. Actresses with similar names eventually meld together in my mind. I remarked I was also confusing Olivia Del Rio and Olivia O‚ÄôLovely. Alison responded that she too, confused the two Olivia’s. In this series of posts, we’ll examine stars with similar names and try to unearth distinguishing features which will help us individualize the performers. First up, Missy Stone and Misty Stone.

Comparing some statistics per IAFD.

Missy Stone
Entered Business: 2007
Still Active?: Yes
Nationality: American
Measurements: 32-25-34
Performer Credits: 66 Titles

Misty Stone
Entered Business: 2006
Still Active?: Yes
Nationality: American
Measurements: 32-25-35
Performer Credits: 70 Titles

Not much help from the statistics in trying to separate the two performers. Let’s take a look at a few scene previews and check for tattoos, piercings, or other discernable physical characteristics which might be useful.

Missy and Misty are both cute, hot, and deliver engaging performances. Currently, Missy has the stronger collection of scenes on the site, but I look forward to Misty closing the gap in the near future. This case study proved easier to solve than I initially suspected. A careful analysis of the scene previews, reveals Missy Stone is white and Misty Stone is black. Remembering that one lone fact should help avoid future confusion.

Coming soon to the blog – Case Study #2: Who will it be?

Candace Von vs. Velicity Von?

Pocahontas vs. Strokahontas?

Lucy Lee vs. Lucy Lee?

Are there sets of performers that cause you confusion (through similar names or otherwise)? Let us know and we’ll try to provide clarification.

Joke of the Day

A guy is suffering from severe headaches for years with no relief. After trying all the usual cures he’s referred to a headache specialist by his family doctor. The doctor asks him what his symptoms are and he replies, “I get these blinding headaches; kind of like a knife across my scalp and…”

He is interrupted by the doctor, “And a heavy throbbing right behind the left ear?”

“Yes! Exactly! How did you know?”

“Well! I am the world’s greatest headache specialist, you know. But I myself suffered from that same type of headache for many years. It is caused by a tension in the scalp muscles. This is how I cured it: Every day I would give my wife oral sex. When she came she would squeeze her legs together with all her strength and the pressure would relieve the tension in my head. Try that every day for two weeks and come back and let me know how it goes.”

Two weeks go by and the man is back. “Well, how do you feel?”

“Doc, I’m a new man! I feel great! I haven’t had a headache since I started this treatment! I can’t thank you enough. And, by the way, you have a lovely home.”

  3. beahib Says:

    Well as far as just the names go, we’ve got Ginger Lee and Ginger Lea. Courtney Page and Paige Taylor always get me confused as well since they vaguely resemble each other. There are also way too many Nikkis in porn.

  4. beahib Says:

    Amber Rain/Amber Rayne, Angel Valentine/Angelina Valentine, Brittany Blue/Britney Blew, Haley Scott/Hillary Scott, Jessie J/Jesse Jane, Paige Taylor/Paige Turner, Vanessa Leon/Vanessa Lynn

  5. HotScooter2 Says:

    and how about the lynn’s in the 70’s and 80’s. i recall only 3 of them but i know there were more. the 3 i remember were ginger,amber and porsche. help me name more of them please

  6. ropeadope Says:

    @ kikuchiyo_ken – I echo your sentiments, and I believe the rest of the membership concurs. Six of Missy’s seven scenes on the site (after filtering out behind the scenes segments) are rated five stars.

    @ Rael – Lol, I’m glad you recognized and enjoyed the (partial) tongue in cheek aspect of the post.

    @ beahib – Excellent group of contributions, thank you. I always confused Hillary and Haley Scott early in their careers, as they both entered the business in 2004. Hillary has done far more scenes over the years, so we see her more often. How about Estella Leon and Faith Leon?

    @ HotScooter2 – Would Mai Lin qualify? For the era you’re referring to, I believe you’ve got it pretty well covered. Many more Lynn’s followed in the 90’s and the 2000’s.

  7. HotScooter2 Says:

    Thanks rope:

    i would like the names of the lynn’s in the 90’s and the current decade as well as many as you recall.

  8. ropeadope Says:

    @ HotScooter2 – Here are a few. There are others.

    Micki Lynn, Jasmine Lynn, Gianna Lynn, Kaiya Lynn, Tiana Lynn, Gina Lynn, Shonna Lynn, Taylor Lynn, Alexa Lynn, Krysti Lynn, Jessica Lynn, Veronica Lynn, Vanessa Lynn, Sophia Lynn, Kirra Lynne, Heather Lyn, and Evelyn Lin.

  9. HotScooter2 Says:


    thanks wow that is a lot of Lynn’s. it might have a lot to do with the fact that the first 2 ginger and amber were porn legends

  10. hariseldon Says:

    Aarielle Alexis and Ariel Alexis

    Btw, does anyone know what happened to the former?

  11. davros Says:

    The comparison of the Lucy Lees should be next. And there are 2 Devon Michaels as well.

  12. doppyman Says:

    Next up: A discussion of the differences between the organs of Lee Stone, Evan Stone and Kyle Stone.

  13. beahib Says:

    Speaking of the Lucy Lees, I always wondered how/if performers kept other performers from using the same name in the porn industry. In the mainstream movie industry, the Screen Actors Guild enforces this, and even makes new actors use a different name if their real name is already being used by another actor (this happened to David Hyde Pierce until David Pierce retired). Since porn isn’t unionized, that’s not possible I guess.

  14. ropeadope Says:

    @ hariseldon – Outstanding example. I was previously unfamiliar with Aarielle Alexis, but would certainly have been befuddled with she and Ariel. Iafd lists one 2009 DVD appearance for Aarielle. Barely Legal All by Myself #4 from Hustler. Possibly she has retired?

    @ davros – I had only known of the one Devon Michaels. Is the other Devon Michaels, the individual also known as Leigh Brooke?

    @ doppyman – I’ll leave that topic for the blog at VideoBox Men.

    @ beahib – There must be some type of self policing as it hasn’t seemed to be a point of contention. I do recall a few name changes where the pornstar chose the same or too similar a name as a mainstream performer or other individual in the public eye. Britney Madison was originally Britney Speers and more recently, Katsumi had to change her name to Katsuni. In some cases the pornstar gets away with it. Cindy Crawford would be one example.

  15. doppyman Says:

    Rope – that is where the discussion belongs but it seems to pop up on the scene comments on lots of vids here. Two tone …. no balls …. It’s actually pretty funny, although it can be tedious at times. On the name thing, I am into the Euro girls and their tendency to choose colors or shades for their last name, with a lot of Darks, Blacks, and Blondes thrown in. Which I suppose is catchier than Svetlana Dnietoprop or Danuta Podopenskaia or whatever. And there was that really good riff that Alison linked us to from Kylie Ireland talking about the names Asian girls pick …Kea Kulani, Kaylani Lei, Keeani Lei, Kyanna Lee, Kina Kai, Lyla Lei, Leilana, Lani Lei, Lucy Lee, Lyla Lei …..

  16. ropeadope Says:

    @ doppyman – Yes, I understand. I hadn’t made the connection between Euro girls and their penchant for choosing colors / shades as names. It does appear to hold true in many cases; good catch. Some years back, I thought Anita Blond and Anita Black (both from Hungary) were the same girl, with the specific name decision made to coincide with her hair color in the particular scene in question. But evidently they are two separate, individual, unique performers.

  17. davros Says:

    @Rope == There is a gal who is labeled as Devon Micheals in Small Sluts Nice Butts 10 on this site, but it is Devon Monroe. Don’t know if she went by that at one point in time, or is just labeled wrong. But I’m surprised that Leigh Monroe also goes by that name. Weird …

  18. ropeadope Says:

    @ davros – Thank you for the info. I just checked the Small Sluts Nice Butts scene, and I believe that is a mistake. Probably should have been credited as Devon Monroe all the way. As to Leigh Brooke, she was retiring from the business just about the time “THE” Devon Micheals was entering the business. Most likely just a coincidence.

    Missy Stone!! She’s my new favorite…well Alexis Love is up there as well…

  20. Stratus Says:

    I would agree with jfro21. Missy Stone is a welcome addition to pornland. Sometimes you run across a particular gal who’s just… got it. I look forward to many more scenes with her in it.
