A 19-year old British man has officially changed his name to “Captain Fantastic Faster Than Superman Spiderman Batman Wolverine The Hulk And The Flash Combined”. His previous name was George Garratt. He changed his name by deed poll, paying the required fee, so it’s now his real legal name.
That’s kinda cool, although I think I would choose something even better. His name doesn’t really make sense. I mean, it’s neat to use superhero names (although the potential for a huge lawsuit just increased), but I think he could’ve come up with something better.
BTW, his grandmother is no longer talking to him. I reckon the elders would get upset when you refuse to carry on the family name. I suppose that’s the price you have to pay to be weird / dorky / cool-to-a-few-people. 🙂
While reading up on this, I read of a girl born in Texas in 1984 who has the name of Rhoshandiatellyneshiaunneveshenk Koyaanisquatsiuth Williams. Yes, that is her actual name. I wonder how old she was before she could spell it or even pronounce it!
If you were going to change your name, what would you choose?
