In late 1982, Trevor George of Penarth, Wales, registered his newborn daughter’s name as Jennifer Edson Arantes do Nascimento Jairzinho Rivelino Carlos-Alberto Paulo-Cesar Brietnar Cruyff Greaves Charlton Best Moore Ball Keegan Banks Gray Francis Brooking Curtis Toshack Law George. (Between Jennifer and George are the names of 20 of the world’s greatest soccer players.)
When his wife Lynette found out, she “sat down and cried, then went home to her mother and eventually had the child’s name changed to something more conventional” — Jennifer Anne George.
This was Trevor’s response:
I’m more angry about her changing the names than her leaving. She can stay where she is if that’s what she’s going to do.
I am very curious to know what became of this couple.
