...a shame the UK's best one died with its owner in WWI. Check his name:

Léone Sextus Denys Oswolf Fraudati-filius Tollemache-Tollemache de Orellana Plantagenet Tollemache-Tollemache

;):ohmy::ohmy::ohmy::ohmy::ohmy:

He was a Captain in the Leicestershire Regiment, who died on 20 February 1917.
Anyone else know of any other extraordinary names?

There was a Liverpool supporter that gave the names of the first team 11 to one of his children. I don't know when this was but a good few years ago IIRC!!!!!!!!

That would be quite a contrast to a similar exercise performed today...coupled, perhaps, with the vogue for 'twin' surnames/ family names... ;)

That was the fellow! Thanks Spesh.
Didn't recall the Johann chap though!
 
Well, it's slightly OT but I was fascinated to learn about a couple of names - they originally (for me) came to light as two dance troupes in the early 80's (:biggrin:)
One was boys and the other girls...The Featherstonehaughs and the Cholmondeleys - pronounced "Fanshawes" and "Chumleys".

On writing this, I googled - as you do - and, ye gods! uncovered their site AND their young dancers called the Marjoribanks and the Colquhouns or the "Marchbanks" and "Cahoons".

Is Colnago really pronounced "Kona"? ;)

No, it's pronounced "expensive."

Hope this helps. ;)
