Who Has The Name Of The Year?

If you’ve never heard of the Name of the Year competition, you’re really missing out.  We’ve all seen amazing stories featuring the likes of Max Fightmaster and Batman bin Suparman, but Name of the Year goes above and beyond to curate the best names seen anywhere around the world and then lets you and me vote to determine who has the best name of the year, each and every year.  Names are taken from sports, politics and news reports so they are, in fact real (though it’s possible some of these people changed their names at some point).  Check out this year’s bracket;

It’s a tough choice when you have winners like Infinite Grover going against Queeniemoney Hughey. 

Past winners are just as incredible as the current crop of awesome and put to shame those of us who got stuck with names like Dave or Ted or Mary.  Check out the Name of the Year Award Winners from the past 32 years;
