Whats in a Name?

Both of these where on the Skynews website today...
A James Bond fanatic has changed his name by deed poll to match his hero's - and used the title of all 21 films as his middle names.

David Fearn is now known as James Dr No From Russia With Love Goldfinger Thunderball You Only Live Twice On Her Majesty's Secret Service Diamonds Are Forever Live And Let Die The Man With The Golden Gun The Spy Who Loved Me Moonraker For Your Eyes Only Octopussy A View To A Kill The Living Daylights Licence To Kill Golden Eye Tomorrow Never Dies The World Is Not Enough Die Another Day Casino Royale Bond
The 23-year-old council worker told The Daily Mirror he wanted to prove he was one of the world's biggest Bond fans.

"I can't wait for the first time somebody asks what my name is," he said
"This story just gets better and better, the plonker is from Birmingham...."

A new generation of superheroes is on its way to save the world - thanks to mums and dads who are film fanatics. Records have shown two boys born in recent years have been named Superman. And six youngsters now answer to the name of Gandalf, after the wizard in The Lord Of The Rings. Other proud parents, presumably inspired by the silky football of Thierry Henry, have called their children Arsenal. Keira Knightley: Popular. Three families have named sons David Beckham - and 29 have named theirs Gazza. Golf-mad dads have apparently had their say too, with nearly 2,000 children named Tiger, according to the research of birth certificates since 1984 by family history website Rap stars Dr Dre, Tupac, Jay-Z and even Snoop Dogg have had children named after them. More predictably there have also been more than 6,000 Kieras - reflecting the rise of actress Kiera Knightley. Kylie is still a more popular name for girls, however, with more than 7,000 born in the past 22 years.

My Dad has a name the these sort of people and if you ask me nicley I may just tell you.
