Let me introduce myself...

Some of you know me already. Some of you don't. You might know me as One Ring To Rule Them All, aka The Boss of Outblush, or by my real name(s). Maybe you have a pet name for me (you weirdo, you). Regardless, I need you to give me a new name: a badass Roller Derby name.

As a relatively awesome person, I'm constantly looking for ways to up my A-game. It's hard, because I'm pretty rad already, you know? With that in mind, I recently decided to take up the holy-shizz-this-is-real sport of roller derby. I've been working at it since the beginning of the year, and I'm sold. Awesome chicks, exercise, fast pace, and bruises galore.

The only thing I'm missing is a name! No, One Ring To Rule Them All isn't a good one...for me, at least. For personal reasons, I'm looking for a name with a German slant (as you can see below). Now that I've heard it all, from Wendy Colon (no!) to ExperTease, I've gotta settle on one. My top 5 are below - cast your vote and be a part of Outblush history! Or if you come up with something better, leave it in the comments.

Thanks, everyone! And remember, if you register for my name of choice before I do, I will hunt you down. Love y'all!

UPDATE: And the winner is... Hedy LaScarr! I'll be registering it with twoevils as soon as my league sends in our updates. I swear, if it's already taken, there will be hell to pay for some unlucky derby-er.

Awesome idea, Charles! So creative! And just exactly how I want to be thought of.

(In case anyone is wondering, all that up there is sarcasm.)

Aw, Brutal Streudel is adorable! Probably not what you were going for, but I might have to snag that title for some crazy pastry concoction anyways.

Make sure that the name you pick isn't registered by another skater, and check the spelling, there's some creative spelling out there. Also, traditionally, your teammates help you pick your name. Have fun out there!

ooh, good point, Emm. All of these names have been vetted against what's current on twoevils ("current") and also against the names of the skaters in my league
|(so we don't have two Molly/Maullys). I've asked some of the gals in my league, but so far they've been more helpful in the actual learning to skate part rather than the naming part. Maybe they're tired of thinking of names, just like me! :D

As an avid reader and a roller derby gal turned ref, this makes me so happy! Make sure you check out two-evils to ensure your name is not taken. What league are you with? I'm with the Magnolia Roller Vixens in Jackson, MS!

Hey Liz! I'm with Long Beach Roller Derby, in Long Beach, CA. (hello, Elle B. Siege!) I'm taking a road trip in May...maybe I can stop in Jackson and see y'all!

...and yeah, me 'n' twoevils? We're like besties now. I've just gotta hope that no one takes my name before I submit it. >_<
