Best drag queen names

This topic came to mind after reading the "best rock & roll names" thread. Just looking down the campy adopted aliases ("Siouxsie Sioux" for example) put me in mind of drag queen names.

Famous or Semi-famous Drag names:
Cashetta
Amanda ("A man, duh!")
Candy Darling a.k.a. Candy Warhol
Lady Bunny
Robin Kradles
Lipsynka
Divine
RuPaul
the Lady Chablis

Drag names of not-very-famous-at-all 'queens':
Chlamydia Burns
Penny Arcade
Lotta Balls
La Hottotrotta
Chisa Chu ("She's a Jew!")
Gonnhor Rita


What's the best drag names (by famous folks, or just names you've heard) YOU know?

Harvey Feirstein's drag names included Virginia Hamm, Bertha Venation and (my personal favorite) Bang-Bang la Desh


Alexis Arquette's drag persona is Eva Destruction

The most controversial drag queen is the cross-dressing and cross-racial Shirley Q. Liquor (she has some very enthusiastic black fans [including RuPaul and Whoopi Goldberg] but has infuriated others- several of her appearances have been picketed, some even cancelled)

Various names I've heard:

Sallie Mae Veil
Raya Light
Boom Boom Towns

If I ever do drag I'll be Auntie Depressance.

Oh, and of course who could forget Miss Coco Peru ([I]"It buuuuuuuuuuurns!") or the entire cast of the tasteless and budgetless but feckin' hilarious Girls Will Be Girls (An abortion? Puh-leez! I've had more kids pulled out of me than a burning orphanage!".)

Now I simply have to see the film Girls Will Be Girls - I don't suppose it is showing on Sundance or IFC channels? And I doubt my local video store will be carrying it...looks like I am off to Amazon dot com.

I knew a guy who entered a drag beauty contest as the contestant from Las Vegas, Miss Penny Slots.

There is a drag name generator here.

I was lucky enough to see Lypsinka and Flotilla de Barge in Imitation of Imitation of Life a couple of years ago.

I once saw a newspaper interview with one Ms. Helvetica Bold.

According to the drag name generator, I would be Mama Mammaries. I demand a do-over on that one.

Another "brava!" for the indie flick Girls Will Be Girls.

The drag name generator calls me "Ursula Uranus". Ick. How about "Apara Falsies" instead?

I think my favourite drag name ever is Wyness Mongrel-Bitch, a Sydney drag queen.

My favourite drag king name is Sexy Galexy, another Sydney favourite.

A couple of friends of mine have Monique Depressive and Constance Cravings as their drag names.

I can't believe nobody has mentioned Philadelphia's favorite drag queen and host (ess) of Gay Bingo Nights - Carlotta Ttendant!

When I use the porn-star formula (name of 1st pet + name of 1st street you lived on) I get a very drag-queen-ish name: Chin-Chin Tulane.

I think Rachel Tension (with a sequined Confederate Battle Flag dress) is one of the best personas I've seen.

You had a pet named Exit?

Even if that's only a first name, it sounds weird.




Pepper Mill generated her name this way. When I try it I get Laddy Colfax, which sounds more like a ball player.

Also, one of my favourite RL drag queen names was Her Imperial Highness, The Grand Duchess Tatiana Nevahoydova.

Long story short: I got a teddy bear as a thank you gift when I was 4 years old and a ringbearer in a wedding. When the flower girl asked me what I was going to name it, the first thing I saw was an exit sign. I loved that teddy bear and when we got a kitten, I insisted it was named after my teddy bear.

I think Australia must be the home of the Drag Queen Name Server. Let me see, just off the top of my head we have:

Portia Turbo
Maude Boate
Penny Tration
Amanda Diefore
Kitten Kaboodle
Barbra Quicksand
Kitty Litta

and uncountable others.

According to the Drag Name generator my SMDB name is Bera Breast and my real name is Felicia Fellatio. Hmmm.

I don't know if they're still around, but there was a Pepsi family here.
I met Tulita, who told me about Cherry, Dyetta, and the apparently large Acasa.

Personally, I think Carmina Burana would be a great name.
