Yahoo Serious aka Greg Pead.

Officially changed his name to "Yahoo" in 1980 years before the Internet company Yahoo! came along.

Read all about him here if you dare:

there's a bloke who changed his name legally

to include the words

'Level 42'
and then followed by
Level 42's complete discography
and then
the names of the members of Level 42

it's a pretty long name.

Believe it or not, I met my wife in kindergarden at the tender age of 5. I was thinking of naming our first born "Block Corner".....but we had a change of heart and named him Andrew. lol

Reporter fired for Yahoo baby hoax
Monday, January 24, 2005 Posted: 7:16 AM EST (1216 GMT)

BUCHAREST, Romania (Reuters) -- A Romanian tabloid says it has fired a reporter for making up a story about a couple who named their son Yahoo as a sign of gratitude for meeting over the Internet.

Earlier this month, major Bucharest daily Libertatea published a story saying two Romanians had named their baby Yahoo and printed a picture of his birth certificate. The news was widely picked up on the Internet.

"It was the reporter's child's birth certificate, which he modified," said Simona Ionescu, Libertatea's deputy editor-in-chief. "We fired him."

She said Ion Garnod, who had worked for the paper for several years, had admitted inventing the story to look good.

"If it were real, it would have been a good story indeed," Ionescu said.

Garnod was not available for comment.

Reminds me of a Tragically Hip song called The Dark Canuck:

"if we ever get home
i'm gonna have me three children
Apple, Zippo and Metronome
that's what i'm gonna name them
"
