Poopsie

From the Oxford English Dictionary, "A small child (especially a child of the speaker); a sweetheart. Chiefly as a term of endearment or affectionate form of address." The origins of Poopsie date back to the 1930s; it's earliest use is found in The Sheboygan Press and is perhaps an alteration of poopsy, after tootsy.

How Did We Choose the Name Poopsie?

In April of 2021, the Sky Carp announced a 'Name the Mascot' contest, in which all fans, both near and far, could submit names they thought would make a good fit for the new mascot. In a two-week span, over 1,000 submissions poured in!

The Sky Carp team then reviewed the submissions, and the five (5) most popular names were selected and unveiled to the public for a popularity vote. The five most popular submissions were as follows;

  • Homer
  • Honk Aaron
  • Rocky
  • Poopsie
  • Scarpie

The following disclaimer was notated on the voting page for all fans to view:

  • The Beloit Sky Carp Front Office will consider many factors before choosing a mascot name, including but not limited to community popularity, marketability, and relevance to the Sky Carp brand/mission. These factors together will determine the winning name.

Over 1,500 votes poured in! At the conclusion of the voting period, the top three names were Poopsie, Scarpie & Honk Aaron.

The team then ran each of the five (5) names through a trademark search. The only names that passed that search were Scarpie & Poopsie. All other names ran into conflicts from other mascots in professional sports, as well as player likeness issues (Honk Aaron).

The team was then left to decide...Poopsie or Scarpie? And the choice was simple!

Poopsie was chosen for the following reasons:

  • It’s true definition (see above) & local ties to Wisconsin
  • Easy pronunciation- We tested the names with a 2-year old. Very easy for children to pronounce.
  • Unique tie to Geese
  • Distinct difference from the team name. Scarpie is simply Sky & Carp combined.
  • Uniqueness - No other mascots exist (that we know of) with this name
