That is why Richard Smith, 51, of Carlisle, UK recently changed his name to Stormhammer Deathclaw Firebrand.
That is unusual, but Mr. Firebrand is certainly not the first to change his name to something with a little more flash. For example metro.co.uk listed some other interesting name-changes in the UK:
---Gary Fisher of Dorset changed his name to McLovin.
---Daniel Westfallen from Essex changed his name according to whatever was drawn out of a hat by his friends. His new official name is Happy Adjustable Spanners.
---John Anthony Westood of Portsmouth wanted to support his favorite soccer team, so, he now has the name John Anthony Portsmouth Football Club Westwood.
---Aron William James Brown, 25, was inspired by the Lion King, a certain TV-detective, The Fonz (from TV's Happy Days), and his favorite handheld game. Now, his official name is:
Aron Mufasa Columbo Fonzerelli Ball In A Cup Boogie Woogie Brown. (Boogie Woogie was added to be whimsical.)
---Chris Brewer of Grimsby changed his name to: Tintin Captain Haddock Confused Brewer.
