Boxing legends' names cause baby name nightmare

A mother who wants to carry on the family tradition of naming their children after boxing legends is fighting the registry office to include all 25 middle names.

Maria Brown is desperate for her daughter Autumn to continue has her elders have before by including some of the most famous boxers' names within her own, but register staff are contesting the request, saying that the name is simply too long.

If Maria gets her way, the baby will be named 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 by the boxing-mad parents.

Speaking to the Wolverhampton Express and Star newspaper, Maria said: "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 until the age of 10 to memorise it all."

Maria insists having such a long name never put her at a disadvantage, though one has to consider that the knock-out name could cause problems for the little girl when she starts to read and write!
