I Took Your Name is the name of a song by R.E.M. It is also the solo moniker of Dutch guitarist and singer/songwriter, Chris van der Ploeg.

Based in Groningen, The Netherlands, Van der Ploeg recorded three full-length albums as a member of Groningen-based indie band, Audiotransparent.

His début solo EP, Bayonet EP, saw its digital release in late 2012. It was followed by scattered songs via his Bandcamp site. Some of them also popped up on Spotify.

Biographical information from the I Took Your Name Bandcamp page: "The original plan was to make an ambient guitar record about rail yards. All that Audiotransparent and Kendler guitar player, Chris van der Ploeg, came up with was songs. He christened his project I Took Your Name, the name borrowed from an R.E.M. song."
