Hammergurrl!
« on: November 30, 2012, 09:40:56 PM »


Do we get to submit names too? You know, those of us who don't use facebook and only get to notice these things if we're checking Beasts of War while they're physicaly transporting their studio from Northern ireland to England.

My vote's for Bessie.

Big hammer.... Thor.. or maybe his daughter rr (Old Norse "strength"[1]), sometimes anglicized as Thrd or Thrud.

can't call a girl thrud

So how about Ayva... a Germanic girls name meaning "strength"

I remember the posters... "head firm, shaft secure" ... all about a pre-use check of your trusty hammer :D

I'd call her Goggs.

I was going to derive Deirdre from Hammertime (dee, dee, dee, dee....) but I'm still pluggin' away for Bessie here. It would be nice to see her from a different angle. If she's got a ponytail then she won't look like a Bessie anymore and something Like D-D or Deirdre would be more apropriate.

I've suggested changing it for a mop instead of a sledgehammer (along the lines of a certain mop wielding waitress in a zombie survivor webcomic) but the Hammergurrl vibe's still going strong for poor little Bessie here. And long may she retain it :).

I found the back picture. No ponytail so Bessie it is :). And no. I don't know what the inspiration or cultural reference is so I can't suggest smug "not" names. Bessie just feels right 'though.

I know she does not look like the girl from the old 1984 style Apple advert but she still reminds me of it so something apple related perhaps?

Harriet? After 'Arry the 'Ammer, the former mascot of WHFB.

But I think Balgin's right, she does look like a Bessie.

She's lovely!
When I first saw her on FB awhile back, I never made the SP connection.

I suggested "Ajax" on FB, so I'll suggest it here too!

Huh?

Only thing I can think of is Rhonda Mitra in that "Mad Max in Scotland" film. I think it's the hair.
