Need Help (Metal Related)

Post by Natalya » Thu Sep 06, 2018 11:06 pm

My roller derby team's name is problematic because of reasons. Team name is Denim Demons. BUT the theme is ossum: Undead Sailor Punk//Metal Girls

So we need a new team name. But I want to keep some (or all) elements of the team's theme.

Take note: Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Iron Maiden
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7zk4as9kzA

This song essentially captures the theme of the team. You've got cursed sailors aboard an ill-fated ship, monsters of the sea, death and life-in-death, resurrection and re-death, etc. Also, the song isn't problematic in any way and honestly I would consider it to be wholesome because of the message -- don't fuck with nature for no good reason.

So I consider that song a jumping off point. I was even able to get my team to roll out to it for a game once in 2017 and we won that game so it's already got some positive juju.

Anyway, the team needs a new name, hopefully with that theme or Rime of the Ancient Mariner in mind.

Name requirements:
- Two words
- No reference to women//girls or vixens or harlots or anything like that
- Not problematic
- Bonus points if both words start with same letter

I hope y'all can help me. I haven't been able to come up with something myself. I'm afraid if I don't have a really good suggestion they'll make the team into some boring thing and we'll lose the metal//punk aspect of the team. I want to keep derby weird, these days it's getting watered down and made palatable to average people, which there's some positives there, but I don't want it to lose its counter-culture ethic. This team name thing is part of my quiet struggle.

8. Black Myrmidons (or whatever color)
9. Abyssal Run

11. Atlantis Arisen (or Atlanta Arisen, lol)

Barnacle Buddies sounds like something out of a SpongeBob episode.
