Help a derby girl choose a name!

Help me, Metafilter, you're my only hope... of coming up with a rad roller derby name! I keep coming up with names that make references that my friend don't get/think are funny - can you help me find a way to please both myself and the masses?

There comes a time in every roller girl's life when she needs to come up with a derby name for herself, and my time is now. Unfortunately, the names I've come up with have been mostly met with blank stares when I run them by people.
Smarty Jonestown Massacre (my favorite)
Brandy Alexander ("too stripper")
Busty Keaton (taken)
A bit about me: I'm originally from Philadelphia, but am currently in Los Angeles. I tend to prefer names with puns, book and movie references, important events or references to drinking (whiskey, specifically). At the moment my hair is auburn, but that's always subject to change. Ideally, I'll end up playing as a jammer, so names referencing fast things would also be be a plus.
Oh, and double plus points if you manage to use the word "bosom," because I really think that's one of the funniest words ever. Thanks so much!
