This is mostly a transcript of a real conversation. I got SO EXCITED when we came up with “Hermione Danger,” but Emily’s league has rules against duplicate names even if the other person is 40 states away. I also have to confess that our daughter came up with “J.K. Rolling” after I suggested “J.K. Brawling.” Kiddo plans to start in a kids derby league this summer. They don’t really get to bought. They just learn the rules, the skating and practice eternally until they’re 11 years old (the legal age for smashing into people on roller skates). There’s a guy in Emily’s league whose name is “Problems” and he’s number 99. That’s pretty clever.
Fleur de la Cruel
No love for Draco? I thought this was a site filled with gothic high school girls! I bid you all good day!
… I SAID GOOD DAY.
I figured that if two roller derby players with the same derby name met, they would simply fight to the death. The internet really is runing everything.
In a just world, this would be the case.
Two teams enter on team leaves
Whomping Willow Rosenberg is perfect!
If it's too obscure, then there's most likely a chance it's available
Don't limit yourselves to one writer—Brust: Sethra Explode…Moon: Paksenarrion Slashnslaughter…Weber: Donar Harrington…Martin: The Great and Powerful BodyChecker.
If there's a guy named "Problems" with the number 99, then I'm hoping that whoever gets the number 1 crosses the number out and calls themself "The Bitch".
How about names based on real people?
Smashley Judd is my favorite.
I like your names better than all of the fictional names!
I like Calamity Pain and Sigourney Reaper (or Ripper).
OH MY GOD.
think you better slow your Diagon down…
You been castin\’ spells all over town…
Knocturn Sally works too
I think I just officially crossed the barrier into Old. It took me a good ten seconds to realize that the #99 "Problems" thing wasn't an obscure Gretzky reference I was failing to grok.
It's safe to assume I am never talking about hockey.
Rolldemort! (aka The Skater Who Shall Not Be Named)
That'll teach me not to read them all before posting.
Whomping Willow Rosenberg may just be the best pun name I have ever read.
Does the name have to be based on a Harry Potter character? Or a woman? The first name that came to my warped little mind was this:
Frodown or elrend
I remember when one of my friends finally started derby-ing (that's totally a reall word, right?) in Austin and the Facebook posts for weeks and weeks went back and forth between I don't know how many people trying to come up with a name for her (she ended up as Bessie Mae Mucho).
That is a great name! My friend started doing roller derby as Battle E. Portman, which made me realize that I can't join roller derby because I'm bad at puns.
Die Anna val hella carmaggedon reference
I'm waiting for somebody to take the derby name Wingardium Furiosa.
Holy shit, that\’s rad.
Also, it\’s Furi-OH-sa, not Furio-SAH.
Or go Doctor Who
Sara Jane Smash
"Ripper Song " was one of her original choices. I can't remember if it was taken or if she just gave up on it.
