"The name's Cheeseburger, Bacon Double Cheeseburger." Believe it or not, that's exactly what a London man is able to say and prove it, now that he's legally changed his name to reflect his love for the meaty, greasy food.
As reported by The Times, the 33-year-old man was formerly known by the significantly less appetizing name of Simon Smith. Mr. Cheeseburger (we hope that's what he goes by now) is just one of a record 85,000 people who changed their names in the UK last year. Apparently, the new name was inspired by the popular Burger King menu item and further fueled by lots of drinking with friends.
"It was the culmination of probably too many drinks in the pub where there was a conversation about names," Cheeseburger told the Evening Standard. "Bacon Double Cheeseburger was pretty much the first thing that came up. Everyone loves bacon don’t they? It was largely the most ridiculous thing we could think of. My friends were quite supportive of anything that makes me look silly, as good friends are."
