Drag Name Origin[]

In August 3, 1990, Darienne met two drag queens who painted her face for the first time. Darienne wanted to be called Heather Sky, but they both told her that it didn't suit her. The queens then suggested Tracy Turnblad, a character from the 1988 film Hairspray portrayed by Ricki Lake since Darienne looked like her. She didn't want someone else's name so they suggested Darien Lake — Ricki Lake's love child with the amusement park in Corfu, New York near Buffalo and Cheektowaga. She thought, "Well, I am two tons of fun," and spelled it as Miss Darienne Lake so she wouldn't get a cease and desist order. The "ne" was also more feminine, like Adrienne, but with the "a" and the "d" switched.[2][3]
