Maybe it is due to the blatant sexualization of WWE divas. Hey, why not make these hot babes that guys want to gobble up have just their first names?

With any luck, Anita Sarkeesian will do a series on this.

I like how divas have surnames. They sound like pornstars or those women in strip clubs where they only have first name.

Their names is the least important of their problems imo. They should worry about their awful ring skills, charisma, mic skills, look and acting skills first.

Their ring names sound like names you would give a diva...How about differentiating heels/babyfaces? Some bad haircuts, actual names and a nasty personality will help. For example, look at Luna Vachon, Bull Nakano and Scary Sherri..and the babyface women had names like Alundra Blayze! Thats some cool shit there they need to bring back.

The mononym thing doesn't always work, but I think Bayley and Paige are good names. Same goes for Carmella and Charlotte (though Charlotte Flair works too).

You've also got Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch, Nikki and Brie Bella and Alicia Fox, which are all solid names.

I could go either way on Asuka (I like the idea of her having one name, but the name itself isn't amazing) and Alexa Bliss (which is a very solid name, though kind of... y'know, a porn star's name).

Among horses, Red Hare. Among posters, RetepAdam.

I hate that some of them sound like a pornstar's name.
