Weirdest Names Ever

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

I love this list from Neatorama featuring the 10 weirdest names ever. My favorites include:

Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116 (Pronounced “albin”).

Nicholas Unless-Jesus-Christ-Had-Died-For-Thee-Thou-Hadst-Been-Damned Barbon (Dick Assman, bad Simpsons joke or poor fool with a bad name1640 – 1698). Nicholas’ shall we say “unique” name apparently ran in the family: his father was Praise-God Barbon

@. And finally, let’s go full circle to “@,” pronounced “ai ta” or “love him” by an unidentified Chinese couple.

Thanks to her link to Wikipedia, I also found a few more favorites:

  • Optimus Prime A member of the United States National Guard which legally changed his name to one of a Transformers character.
  • Wonderful Terrific Monds III was a baseball player in the Atlanta Braves farm system in the early 1990s.
  • Louis George Maurice Adolphe Roche Albert Abel Antonio Alexandre Noë Jean Lucien Daniel Eugène Joseph-le-brun Joseph-Barême Thomas Thomas Thomas-Thomas Pierre Arbon Pierre-Maurel Barthélemi Artus Alphonse Bertrand Dieudonné Emanuel Josué Vincent Luc Michel Jules-de-la-plane Jules-Bazin Julio César Jullien, (April 23, 1812 – March 14, 1860) a French conductor.
