What’s In a Name?

Recently, two professional athletes did the unthinkable and legally changed their names to their nicknames. MMA fighter Jon “War Machine” Koppenhaver, to get around a WWE wrestler’s trademarked name, changed his legal name to War Machine. That showed ’em.

Not to be outdone, NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson added “Ocho Cinco” to his name legally (a name that represents his jersey number).

What is this world coming to? Can you imagine if everyone started doing this!?

We’d have Icemen and Rampages and Buses and Fridges walking around.

What was your nickname growing up? If you could legally change your name to anything you wanted, what would you change it to?

I think I’d go with something like Brad Pitt or Flash Gordon… 😛


Have a great short week gangy!
