Word is, not his parents. He was named John when he was born. He legally changed his name to Boof
My doctor's name is Beard. When his lawyer wife was pregnant, they were discussing names for their first born. They were were talking first and middle names only, and when the little girl was born she was named "Anya Katherine".
It never occurred to them that anything was unusual until my doctor's FIL called him and asked "What's Anya Beard??"
What's the most unusual name you've ever heard?
p.s. What idiot changed the HTML format for italics to something other than "less than I greater than"?? And does anyone have a clue on what it actually is now?
