Knock-out name for baby girl

Newborn Autumn Brown arrived in the world with not a name to live up to – in fact, she had 25.

The child’s mother Maria, decided to give her 25 middle names, all of boxing world champions, in keeping with her boxing-mad family’s bizarre tradition.

Her full name, which stunned register office staff in Perton, Wolverhampton is:
Autumn Sullivan Corbett Fitzsimmons Jeffries Hart Burns Johnson Willard Dempsey Tunney Schmeling Sharkey Carnera Baer Braddock Louis Charles Walcott Marciano Patterson Johansson Liston Clay Frazier Foreman Brown.

Maria told the city’s Express and Star: “The whole thing came about because both my mum and dad are obsessed with boxing and have a bit of a daft sense of humour.

“When I was young I couldn’t ever remember my name. It took me to the age of 10 to memorise it all.”

The 33-year-old mother added: “I’m hoping Autumn has a good sense of humour with her name. It’s never done me any harm though.”
