There is a player in the Ottawa circuit this year with the name "Flash Thompson". At first I thought it was a pseudonym, but no, his mother was on hand to confirm that it was his given name.

I don't think there's a Peter Parker at his school...

Carleton University has a player named Skye Walker. My birthday around when I went to staff ICCS this year, and the Carleton team surprised me with her delicious homemade cupcakes.

At this year's MSNCT and HSNCT, http://www.naqt.com/stats/player.jsp?contact_id=135975 was the stats room's favourite name.

And just to be clear: the criteria for this is "are these names awesome?"

One of my favorite ones from qb is Cresston Gackle. That's a cool sounding name. Brock Bagelman is a cool sounding name. There's not going to be any "this name sounds funny, haha" stuff.

I will nominate Tiger Sun from my Blacksburg team. His name is so cool, he got accused of playing with a pseudonym at a recent tournament.
