Need some name ideas for a practice jersey

I was thinking about making some funny/phony Russian/European names for the back of my pick up jersey. I considered taking my original name, Walsh, and adding on an -erov or -alev, or making a combination of a few like Kovalvechkinov. Any ideas?

That one is just brilliant!

I knew a girl whose real last name was "Vukov." It was pronounced quite similarly to what we all might imagine.

Just get it in cyrillic letters if you can. It would probably end up as валш

Łalsz?

It would read as Walsh.

Does anyone actually put your real name on your practice jerseys? I did before because even in pick-up games or stick and puck's people would know who you were. It's better then someone yelling out "Hey Dude or Dudette" Is that considered odd now?

I did. It's a really long polish name. I couldn't get it on an NHL jersey even if I wanted to, too many letters. So I got it on my practice jersey. But I did have a backup plan, if my name didn't fit, I would have put Pickle on it.

Hmm, I never thought of putting a funny name on my practice jersey. I'll have to think of something.

I have a Quenneville Whalers jersey. The name is so long the jersey is actually uncomfortable to wear because the name is too long and it crinkles and folds against my upper back.

Is Pickle a nickname? It's always interesting to hear how people get them!

How many letters in your name? Mine has ten and I thought that was long!

Mine is only 8 letters long, so I'm lucky if I ever wanted to put my own name on a practice jersey. It largely depends on the font, but it seems like anything over 9 letters gets to be a bit long. Langenbrunner's jersey looks off to me since his name is 13 letters and doesn't fit well on the jersey.

This isn't hockey, but check out this guy's name. 14 letters:

Not really a nickname, but when I was first thinking of getting a Coyotes jersey with a name on it, I found that 11 letters was too many - so I joked with the kids that we should change our family name to Pickle. My daughter would be Gracie Pickle, which just sounds funny. I'd be Mrs. Pickle, which also is pretty funny. My husband didn't find it funny at all, though. For some reason, he's really attached to his name.

My son and I still think about getting a Coyotes jersey with the name Pickle on it, just for fun. It would be cool to walk through jobing arena with our Pickle shirts, definitely it would cause some head-scratching though!

That would be cool, you should do it!

If you can find a Fresno or Lake Erie Monsters jersey, get "Trogdor" (or the Russian equivalent "Trogdorov").
