How Are These Name Changes Even Legal? They’re Just Crazy.

Some people just absolutely hate their name. I understand it, you aren’t given the choice when you are born, so you can grow up hating your name. Some of those name-haters then elect to legally change their names once they’re old enough to do so. There’s nothing inherently wrong with that.

That is what these people did, but boy… did they ramp up the silliness of it all.

The man formerly known as David Fearn was such a James bond fanatic that he changed his name to…well…that. I wonder if he intends to keep his name updated with the forthcoming Bond films coming out.
