Clever drag queen names say a lot about a queen and how she rules. Thankfully there is a legacy of great drag queens to look to for inspiration. To come up with drag queen name ideas, a queen may look for a name that falls between fishy (feminine) and sexy. Other queens choose to use their masculine names like Chad Michaels or Derrick Barry, or parts of their boy name like "Alyssa" of House Edwards or "Roxxxy" of House Andrews. The less presumptuous queens out there feminized versions of their boy names like Alexis Michelle. But a smart drag queen name not only captures a queen's character, it also leaves her subjects in stitches.

Funny drag queen names typically come in the form of puns, like Ginger Minj, BenDeLaCreme, and Penny Tration. The problem with punny names is they often come with a campy label, limiting a queen's own image in ways you might not realize. Some of the fishier queens have successfully pulled off some smart drag queen names like Pandora Boxxx, Farrah Moan, and Courtney Act, which sounds like "caught in the act" in her native Australian accent.

The best drag queen names only take a second to figure out, or at worst a quick refreshing of drag queen terminology. No matter if they're from the pageant circuit, the fashion circle, the comedy clubs, or wherever the hell Divine crawled out of, every queen needs a memorable name. Check out the good drag names below, and then vote up your favorites!
