Unusual Real Names – Millionaire, Billionaire, Trillionaire

So far I’ve found exactly one person named Millionaire, one person named Billionaire, and one person named Trillionaire:

  • Donisa Millionaire Barrett, female, born in California in 1995
  • Billionaire Heungsup Rhee, male, born in Texas in 1989
  • Addie Elizabeth Trillionaire Brooks, female, born in North Carolina in 1913

Billionaire Rhee has a blog at which he signs his name “Bill.” On an older webpage (no longer online) he posted the following explanation of his name:

My name is Billionaire Heungsup Rhee. My name ‘Billionaire’ was chosen by my grandfather who lives in Santa Barbara, California while my Korean name ‘Heungsup’ was chosen by a Korean fortune teller in Korea before I was born in the US. The name Heungsup means that whoever the person may be, their fire will never burn out and will keep on burning no matter what happens in their life.

Keeping my eyes peeled for a Quadrillionaire now…

In the meanwhile, here are Ten and Decillian Million of Washington, Chamillionaire of Idaho, Cash Money of Minnesota, and Million, Billion and Trillion of Meghalaya, India.
