Top 10 funniest names in sports history

Here are the funniest athlete names we’ve come across, much to your weird relief (though the people involved probably won’t find it that funny).

The words “Guy Forget” would most likely be uttered by a young Nigerian urging his peer to forget something, but in France it refers to a tennis legend.

Guy Forget is a retired tennis player who is now an administrator of the sport and his French name is pronounced “Gi Forjay” but in English it’s just Guy Forget.

Fair Hooker was an American football player for the Cleveland Browns in the ’60s and ’70s, but the ex-NFL star’s name sounds more like a description of how he likes his women.

Speaking of preferences for women: 36-year-old goalkeeper Fabian Assmann from Argentina is very specific about the characteristics he looks for.

The retired American baseball player, originally named Richard Henry Pole, fell victim to a worldwide problem in which the name Richard was automatically shortened to “Dick” as a nickname.

It’s an odd rule, but these jokes write themselves. Dick is famous for being six foot three inches long…tall! I meant big.

Former basketball player and current backroom coach for the Dallas Mavericks, God Shammgod didn’t have the kind of career he hoped for.

For someone with two “gods” to his name, his basketball moves were ungodly at best, he played 20 games in the NBA for the Washington Wizards before being traded and spent the rest of his playing career as a journeyman overseas.

There was a god, which makes it only right that we have a satan in sport. Step up retired hockey player Miroslav Satan to fill the void.

The Slovak name “Satan” is actually pronounced “Shatan” with the actual name being written as Ε atan, but we’ll stick with Satan (not literally) because it’s funnier and we speak English.

Yes, I really want a boner… oh wait, that wasn’t an erotic question, it’s the name of an American basketball player who struts her stuff for the Connecticut Sun in the WNBA.

Ex-Manchester United and England midfielder Nicky Butt has had a career successful enough to avoid direct comparisons to Nikki Minaj’s legendary rear end.

It’s good that Destinee Hooker grew up to be a professional volleyball player because apparently her parents had very concrete career plans for her future.

Dean Windass is a retired English footballer and father to Josh and Jordan Windass, who are also currently professional footballers.

With a last name like that, you just know that they will be held accountable for every fart ever made within a 50 mile radius of them.
