Parents Give Baby Girl 25 Names
Knock-out name for baby girl
LONDON (AFP) - Baby Autumn Brown has a name to live up - in fact she has over 25 of them.
The little girl's mother Maria, in keeping with her boxing-mad family's bizarre tradition, decided to give her 25 middle names - all culled from the greatest exponents inside the ring.
Her full name, which left register office staff in Perton, Wolverhampton reeling is: Autumn Sullivan Corbett Fitzsimmons Jeffries Hart Burns Johnson Willard Dempsey Tunney Schmeling Sharkey Carnera Baer Braddock Louis Charles Walcott Marciano Patterson Johansson Liston Clay Frazier Foreman Brown.
Maria told the city's Express and Star: "The whole thing came about because both my mum and dad are obsessed with boxing and have a bit of a daft sense of humour.
"When I was young I couldn't ever remember my name. It took me to the age of 10 to memorise it all."
The 33-year-old mother added: "I'm hoping Autumn has a good sense of humour with her name. It's never done me any harm though."
