The "Name Your Julia" contest!

OK-- Julia Johansen, bjj blogger and English teacher extraordinaire, is feeling a little handle-less. She needs a nickname!

Please won't you help design the appropriate moniker? Whoever wins (if she picks a winner) gets a fabulous BJJ instructional DVD by Stephan Kesting! (I just have to go home to see which one I have a duplicate of-- it's either Dynamic Kneebars or Dynamic Halfguard!)



Submit entries here in the comments! Contest closes in one week-- good luck!

Can we submit more than one?

My brain is only working one direction right now....

Lingo - From the ESL teacher point of view, and Dalek ... because it sounds like dialect and is from Dr. Who. =)

Though, I am sure I will come up with more. =D

What a fun idea!

The only thing that comes to mind is "Julia Gulia"....don't hate me! It is from one of my all time favourite movies, afterall! =)

I keep thinking of the name
Jiujiube! or Jujube!

Cause she's so cute and sweet like a jujube seed! (it's a famous asian spice esp in Korea and China)

Figured since she's in Korea might as well use that reference:)

Well, don't people get nickames when people just start calling them something? I don't think you can pick your own. Othewise, wouldn't people pick a nickname like "captain awesome" as opposed to some of the BJJ names they get stuck with, which aren't very flattering like "Napao" (big nose"; "Margarida" (a girl's name, because he complains a lot); "Pe De Pano" (loosely translated as horse face); "tio barriga" (uncle belly); or macaco "monkey".

i think she should go with the esl executioner so she can be the bilingual bad ass that she is..lol

Yes, you can't really "pick" your own nickname, but you can perpetuate it. You can introduce yourself and suggest people call you it, or you can put it on your blog.

I hereby declare that Megan is the winner. I shall put this on my header post haste!

(Though for more formal occasions I may be referred to as "JuJuBe")

Georgette said...

Fabulous! Megan-- email me (or comment here, I will reject it) with your mailing address. I will ship your DVD out this weekend. CONGRATS!

Megan said...

Yay!! I gotta start using it so it sticks.
