In roller derby we are expected to choose a name for ourselves that becomes our public persona.  Some evoke menace, others are silly, but they almost always involve some amount of word play.  Examples might include: “Tara Armov,” “Isabelle Ringer,” and “Maiden Hell.”

I am, however, experiencing a bit of a block in coming up with one for myself and hoped this fine community could help.

Firstly, as a referee, the name would ideally incorporate elements of that role, like enforcement or justice.  It needs to be short, preferably two to three words in length, and since I’m a guy, male or neutral gendered names would be appreciated.  I had previously come up with “Loudon Clear,” but realized I’m not much of a fan being called “Loudon,” even if it demonstrates what I’m aiming for in a name.  Lastly, if possible, I’d love suggestions that use the real name “Hans,” but at this point I’m open to any suggestions.

Thanks in advance for helping me work this out :)

oooh! Derby Names!

if you’re looking for something with Hans.. hm..  Now, are you looking for something pronounced more ‘Hahns’ or ‘hans’ (like hands with out the ‘d’)?

  • Hans Off (which i realize a variation was suggested above, but this one is a bit more obvious how to say it)
  • Hans Some
  • Dirty Hans
  • Hans Panzer (Panzer is a German Tank)
  • Perhaps a play off of Hans Gruber from Die Hard? 
  • Reffer Madness (playing off the scare-propo film ‘Reefer Madness’) — aw.. looks like this one was taken already. 
  • Blind Justice
  • Jammin’ Judge
  • Luce Lawless

None of these are particularly outstanding, but perhaps they can inspire something else. Hopefully no one near you uses the one you want!

 

Other Ref-y adjectives for others ideas:

  • Roll (Rolling, Roller)
  • Judge/Justice, Jury, Executioner 
  • Penalty
  • Jam
