My announcing gig is soon to kick off, so the time is near when I must officially decide on a Roller Derby name!! Some of the recommendations that came in were pretty awesome, let’s recap:
Midnight Meat Train
The Earl of Jam-wich
Rink Rash Randy
The Big Pierogi
Rock Ness Monster
Bout Shout DiDonato
My personal favorites on this list are Mic D (clever but kinda boring in its same name-ness), The Earl of Jam-wich, and The Big Pierogi. In chatting with JK Elemenopee, I learned that it’s just as important to think about the shorthand version of the name which people will actually use. For example, there really isn’t one with The Big Pierogi – but with Earl of Jamwich, I’d actually just be called Earl. and that’s kinda weak. JK suggested perhaps I go with Mic D, The Earl of Jamwich.
What do you think good readers?
