And That’s How I Came Up With My Roller Derby Name

The other day I was thinking about names (because I saw that Veronica Mars Kristen Bell had a baby and named it Lincoln, which I love) and how Captain Thoughtful’s Mom’s middle name is Jane. And then I thought about how police and medical examiners call unknown victims Jane Doe, and I bet that it’s really weird when they find out the name of the victim and it really is Jane. Β And then I thought about how Jane Doe would be a cool roller derby name because it’s like “BOOM I’m an unknown victim you don’t know what I’m capable of!” Β and then I was like “Wait! Jane Doe-Eyed” because it speaks to being scary and pretty.

And that’s how I came up with my roller derby name.

Just kidding. I would totally want to be called Madame Guillotine because CHOP!

If I could skate, I would be the best roller derby girl ever. Or at least have a plethora of stellar roller derby names to choose from.

    Just came across your blog and love it! Just when I thought the only blogs other than mine were inspirational I find someone who ponders more intellectually stimulating topics like roller derby names. I’m working on mine as we speak…

  3. My neighbor formed a roller derby league in Chicago (Windy City Rollers). Her name was Sister Sledgehammer. We went and saw a bout and the names were awesome. Fun to think about what mine could be.

  4. OMG I just went to a roller derby for the first time ever and found myself judging the girls by their names. Some of them were really dumb, but some were totally awesome. Yours? Awesome. Do it.
