As long-winded but delightfully stacked tipster Gen pointed out, a woman in the UK named Maria Brown gave birth to baby Autumn over the weekend, and she honored the love of boxing in her family by giving her daughter the 25 middle names her parents gave to her. 

Her full name, which left register office staff in Perton, Wolverhampton reeling 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." 

Pretty original.  Most mothers are more subtle about hating their daughters.  They usually wait it out a couple decades before making them try to feel like incompetent wives and mothers with passive-aggressive comments. That last comment especially drives home the point that if her daughter doesn't like her name, then she's inferior to her mother.  Enjoy it now, Maria, 'cause your nursing home is gonna suuuuuuuck.
