So, I headed up to Atlanta this past weekend to hang with our very own May 2010 FanGirl of the Month, Captain Painway, and to check out her Roller Derby team, the Cincinnati Rollergirls, take on the local Atlanta Rollergirls (and fucking demolish them).

It got me thinking. One of the coolest things about Derby is the persona and "alias" each girl develops to represent themselves on the track. We all know "Captain Painway" is one of the coolest fucking derby names around, so...I pose this task to The PoP!ulation for a bit on this week's PoP!cast:

What would be the derby name of your favorite PoP!-Star?
What would your derby name be?
What would be the derby name of your favorite member of The PoP!ulation?
What would be the derby name of your favorite celeb/comic pro?
What would be the derby name of your favorite comic/genre character?

Use this formula to create a winning derby name:

Occupation:Hobby:Interests + Play On Words / Real Name x Reference to Violence =/- Derby Reference = Derby Name Supreme.

It's by no means a scientifically proven equation, but it'll help get you started.

Email your awesome Derby Names to jknize@panelsonpages.com, the cream of the crop will be read on the June 29th PoP!cast, and the best name will win a sweet* prize pack from PanelsOnPages.com!

*"sweet" is purely objectional

For a little more help (and I'm showing off now) here's the international roller derby master roster, with all 19,974 names in existence: http://www.twoevils.org/rollergirls/. The shittiest part about picking a real derby name is that you can't have the same name as someone else, and with that many names already taken, that's a really tough job.

It's nowhere near as cut and dry as that...I just provided the formula as a stepping stone.

I've already got a page full of PoP! Derby Names. I mean...a lot of our "avatars" would be our derby names anyhow, but still...it's fun.

I'm particularly proud of my derby name for Chris Ward.

I'm stealing this btw. My stylist told my yesterday she was really wanting to joing derby (Yes I told her to avoid the Gem City girls and to drive to Cinci) but she was having a hard time coming up with a name.


So yeah, I'll give anyone a big hug if you can come up with some suggestions for her. Her name is Elaine and she's a hair stylist. Very Happy
