Becky Lynch Comments on the Origin of Her WWE Ring Name
Sports Illustrated held a recent interview with Becky Lynch and one of the topics discussed included Lynch revealing the origin of her ring name in WWE.
“When I was coming up with my name in WWE, I came up with a bunch of mad Irish names that I thought were cool.Since my last name is Quin, I tried to get that in there as a first name. Quin Chulainn was one, and that was based off the mythological person from Irish mythology. Cú Chulainn is a badass character in Irish mythology.
They wanted a name associated with my own name, like Rebecca. So I became Becky, and two of the names that came back to me were Becky Lynch and something like Madeleine. I was like, ‘I didn’t even submit that, I don’t know how it got in there.’ It made me think of that TV show Madeleine. Anyway, I said no to that, and the other name that came back was Robin Daly. I actually did like that, but I thought it would be better to have a part of my own name in there, so Becky Lynch it was.”
