    Bryson De Chamboux, imagine being stood at the bar and someone introduces their self like that.

    The best sports man's name I've ever come across is Moto GP rider Maverick Vinales but that's probably for another thread.

    Just googled him, his full name is even worse.

    Bryson James Aldrich DeChambeau is an American professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour. In 2015, he became the fifth player in history to win both the NCAA Division I championship and the U.S. Amateur in the same year. Wikipedia
    Born: 16 September 1993 (age 26 years), Modesto, California, United States
    Weight: 108 kg
    Height: 1.85 m
    Wonder if he'd fancy playing prop?

    D’Brickashaw Ferguson is my favourite daft name. I can just imagine the conversation his parents had when they realised Brickashaw wasn’t daft enough so they’d have to add the D’ to the beginning.

    Former NFL player, 6ft 6, 22 stone, so if I met him it’d be ‘great name mate’.

    One of the funniest names i’ve seen is Rusty Kuntz, a former baseball player, now a coach. Some of the names make you do a double take and think what were the parents thinking. The golfer Notah Begay always got a laugh out of me as a kid as well.

    I don't think yanks use the see you next tuesday word. When I've worked with them they always laugh about how often British lads use it and how it's quite often used as term of affection.

    That's a good one,you do wonder at times what the parents were thinking. I remember a rugby league player named Wayne Kerr ( can't remember the team though )

    They know it - but I think most hold it in shameful reverence and see it as the most evil word to utter. Don't they call it "the c-bomb"? But that's more down to the backwards religious dickheadery that infests a lot of Septicland.
    I f*cking hate wi*an.

    But speaking of Kuntz, there's that commentating by Motson (?) on an England-Germany football game at the World Cup or something. Germany had a player called Stefan Kuntz and Motson said along the lines of "Germany win the ball back... Kuntz"

    Aye, quite possibly, I always tried to stay clear of them in the main, I know a couple that are alright (one has a stupid name now I think about it).

    Correct, Stefan Kuntz, I remember every commentator said it differently when really you knew they wanted him to score a belter just so they could shout it on live TV. Euro 96, I think.

    I still think former Canberra winger Royston Lightning takes some beating.

    Peacock, Westwood, Goodwin, Newlove and Hock are worth a smile from our sport, Onions and Sidebottam from cricket.
    Used to contract into a place where there was a chap called Tommy Coffinhopper (cophenhoper) after years of jibes he announced he was changing his name at a significant cost to himself, most over here thought it would be, McCabe, Murphy, O`Reilly etc....

    Awaiting his arrival after changing his name he proudly clocked in as Patrick Coffinhopper............. a true story.

    Another true story in my Fire Brigade days when coming on duty there was a parade for the oncoming watch , at the end any changes that had happened were read out. There was an officer at the next station along the line whose name was Lily or Lillie (surname) and his son was getting terrible strife at secondary school about his name so the family changed their name to something like Graham. As the o-i-c was reading out the change saying "^&* Lillie has changed his name when one of the sicker blokes piped up with " what to Tiger "
    On the Back foot looking for the front one.

    Anyone remember Paul Cannell, played for Newcastle United in the 70's
