    Another member posted a topic about their Polish chicken named 'Phyllis Diller'. I have ~12 Polish, and a few also have names based on their poof headed appearance -I have a Phyllis, a Sidney (after Sid Vicious), and an Ein (Albert Einstein a Splash polish roo). I also thought Cruella would work too - esp for a showgirl. So I was wanting to encourage a running list of other good poof headed inspired names.

    I named my frizzled boy Spike (character from Buffy) and my smooth boy Bowie. But don't steal those names! [​IMG] [​IMG]


    I'd say just look around for people with crazy hair. I'm sure there's plenty rockstars out there to choose from as well as pop stars or even people like Criss Angel.

    You could name one Elsa. It was the name of the actress who played the Bride of Frankenstein. Unfortunately the actual bride didn't have a name but I like Elsa. Or maybe even Bride LoL
    Full name: Elsa Lanchester [​IMG]

    way back when I first started attempting to keep records on my Polish all my roosters were named after rock stars: (David) Bowie, Ozzy (Osbourne), (James) Hetfield, (Trent) Reznor, Ted (Nugent), Lars (Ulrich). I think I had two other roosters that year but their names escape me.

    How about "Yahoo"? after Yahoo Serious, the Aussie comedian? A Polish hen would make a nice "Bubbles" since she'd have a nice round head. Or "Madame" in honor of Madame De Pompadour? "Edward/Eddie" after Edward Scissorhands?

    Ooh, thought of another: Weird Al. Puffy, Creampuff, and StayPuff would also work.

    Pompadour, Bouffant, and Mullet are some hairstyle names that come to mind, as well as the eternal Beehive. Then there's Shaggy from the Scooby Doo cartoons. Marge Simpson. Liberace. Divine. Marie Antoinette. Ru Paul. Dolly. Ahhh, big hair!

    Or how about Don King?

    Maybe Kid N Play?

    Or some 80s rock/punk groups hairstyles? Poison, anyone?
