Her Name Is A Real Tongue Twister
Middle names are a strange thing, some of us have them, some of us don’t. But maybe none of us will be more envious than a young girl from the United Kingdom who has not one but instead 25 middle names.
Her full name, which she is still learning, is ‘Willow Sullivan Corbett Fitzsimmons Jefferies Hart Burns Johnson Willard Dempsey Tunney Schmeling Sharkey Carnera Baer Braddock Louis Charles Walcott Marciano Patterson Johansson Liston Clay Frazier Foreman Taylor-Brown.’
This is her full name on her passport, it takes up nearly one who page! The 10-year old’s parents have expressed the reasoning behind the name. It is down to the young girls grand father who was a massive boxing fan. This family tradition started back in 1974 when Willow’s mother was given the same names. Every middle name pays homage to every boxing world heavyweight champion since 1974.
The family tradition shows no signs of stopping with Willow’s older sister also having all 25 boxing greats names in her name too.
When asked about the name, Willow’s mother Maria said: “It is nice when people ask you your name and you reel it off. They sort of think it is weird at first but when you do it again, they realise you are telling the truth.”
She continued: “It has always raised a chuckle. It is not on my passport but it is on Willow’s. They just ask her if she remembers it, but it is quite a hard and long name to pick up. Everyone likes to have their 15 minutes of fame and it is something unusual.”
