Only In London: Man Legally Changes Name To Bacon Double Cheeseburger

Lettuce be serious for a moment. A man from North London has changed his name by deed poll to Bacon Double Cheeseburger. Simon Smith from Muswell Hill said he fancied a name change and the Burger King favourite was the first thing that popped into his head. As ridiculous as it sounds, we will relish in the fact that that’s a pretty lucky first thing to pop into your head…no doubt it could have a lot worse ? or is that just us being dirty minded…

Mr Cheeseburger (or is is Mr Double-Cheeseburger?) stated that:“A name is the least important part of your personality. It’s given to you by someone else”. That is true. But we also reckon that changing your name to BACON DOUBLE CHEESEBURGER says a lot about your personality. What, you may ask? Errr, obvs that you’re an absolute legend (whoops no, sorry – that’s KFC). We can, however, certainly see why people might have some beef with it…

His name is what? [Giphy]
The 33-year-old is one of a record-breaking 85,000 people who changed their name last year. Others decided to name themselves after popular footballers like Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Man Utd star Wayne Rooney (frankly, we think those are worse). One couple called themselves Mr and Mrs Amazing, while a man preferred to be referred to as Bruce Wayne, the secret identity of Batman. LOL! One man even changed his name to Happy Birthday ? we bet that one could get old! Haha…
