Stop the presses!
Years ago, I noticed that a handful of U.S. babies had been named MacGyver starting in the late ’80s. When I blogged about MacGyver, I said:
The only name I can think of that might be cooler than MacGyver is Chucknorris. I have yet to come across a baby named Chucknorris, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
Still, they were no Chucknorris.
Only a few days ago did it occur to me to look up Chucknorris at records site FamilySearch.org (which I hadn’t yet discovered back when I was writing about MacGyver).
And you know what? I found one!
A baby boy born in Los Angeles on June 18, 1984, was named Willie Chucknorris Conrod. (I would have preferred to see Chucknorris as a first name, but hey, I’ll take what I can get.)
See? Dreams do come true, you guys. :)
[A question for Willie, should he ever end up here: Dude, what’s it like to have the best middle name of all time? Please comment or email me!]
