As Juliet once said of Romeo:
What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
But some names are sweeter than others… And these people might well agree with me!
Urhines Kendall Icy Eight Special K. (That’s pronounced Your Highness.) Wait a minute – I though I was Your Highness! OK – I’ll make do with Your Majesty…
GoldenPalaceDotCom Silverman. The Internet casino GoldenPalace.com paid $15,000 to the parents for naming their child this as part of the casino’s publicity stunt.
Batman Bin Suparman. Already blessed with the surname of a superhero, this young Javanese man also has a superhero’s first name. (I actually think it’s kind of cool… but I’m weird that way.)
I like unusual names – just ask my kids! In fact, I have three names and a double-barrelled surname so that my signature can’t fit onto one line…
In the future, though, I think we may well see a whole spate of new names.
