Hi -

I just passed my basic training and am joining a roller derby team. Now I need a pseudonym, and it needs to be one that isn't already in use. It needs to be clean enough for my kids to yell it when I play, have my name Emma/Em in it, and they are usually some sort of a pun.

The list of names that have gone is here:

Any ideas welcome!

Best thread ever! I love a pun.

Off the top of my head, all I have is Empathy for the Devil, but I"m working on it...

Dial M for Murder?

Laquila Thu 25-Apr-13 13:40:49

Duh, should been Dial Em for Murder, obvs

Em2121 Thu 25-Apr-13 13:41:30

I love them both! So much better than anything I've come up with. I just don't have a knack for puns...

Seriously, my husband and I spend so much time thinking up puns and daft names for things like this....we're massive geeks. I was telling my dad about our ideas for a mole extermination service the other day named either Apocalypse Mole (not strictly a pun), Mole In One, or Any Mole is a Goal, and he gave me a pitying look and said "you two make your own fun, don't you?". This from a man who would happily spend a week looking round a lawnmower museum.

Em2121 Thu 25-Apr-13 13:50:37

Thanks Custardo - I like The Empress too :-).

LOL @ Apocalypse Mole. I love non-puns - my favourite one was a hairdresser called "Aspects of Hair". Cracked me up every time.

'I just passed my basic training and am joining a roller derby team.'

I could weep I'm so jealous!

Songbird Thu 25-Apr-13 13:54:58

I would totally ignore my name and go for something like Chesty Magee or Busty Laroux, but that's just me grin

Tortington Thu 25-Apr-13 13:59:39

yes yes busty laroux

ditto envy

Em2121 Thu 25-Apr-13 14:02:07

looks inside tshirt. Nope, that's not going to work.

Laquila Thu 25-Apr-13 14:11:09

LOVE Empire Strikes Back! (dammit my punning powers are fading - why didn't I think of this?!)

Hahaha "Aspects of Hair" - brilliant!

Em2121 Thu 25-Apr-13 14:17:04

Husband just came up with Em I Five, I quite like that...

@Songbird - it's THE BEST fun, and there are teams everywhere now. You should take a look and see if there's one local to you.

Songbird Fri 26-Apr-13 07:10:43

Oh Em Gee?! I woke up thinking about this! grin

Songbird Fri 26-Apr-13 07:14:48

Just had a quick look (bloody nor there are loads) at the names already gone and there's a 'convicted melons' grin

Laquila Fri 26-Apr-13 09:38:20

Songbird me too!! We are clearly desperate to be roller derby girls...(love Oh Em Gee, btw)

My contribution for today is nEMesis

My mate plays on a roller derby team. Are you UK or US? Because that list was US names.

She's Onya Case. but we like to chant she's on ya face when we've had a few too many beers

PeterParkerSays Fri 26-Apr-13 09:50:42

ooh, just discovered that my nearest city has a roller derby team and a beginners day on 30th June....grin

Don't you learn some wonderful things on mumsnet?

Only 2 1/2 months to sort my co-ordination so I can actually skate then.

Ow, and how about "Her Emmanence"?

Em2121 Fri 26-Apr-13 12:21:55

Thanks everyone! I love Oh Em Gee, may go with that.

Good luck with the fresh meat training, PPS!


PeterParkerSays Fri 26-Apr-13 12:39:31

oh god, do I want to know why it's called fresh meat training?

VivaLeBeaver Fri 26-Apr-13 12:50:59

I used to play roller derby. Loved it.

I was looking at roller derby for something to do but do you have to be young? I am mid 30s!

Em2121 Thu 09-May-13 10:57:58

OrangeFootedScrubfowl no, I'm 39! xx
