20 Most Inappropriate Athlete Names in Sports History
20 Most Inappropriate Names in Sports History
There are some athletes out there that just have the craziest names. Some of them are just funny, but others are vulgar or don’t match the athlete’s personality at all. Some of them are spelt funny ways that make them way worse than the pronunciation actually is.
For example, pictured above is European Basketball star Gregor Fucka. In English, it looks like profanity but it’s actually pronounced “Fooch-Ka.”
Clearly these athletes are not all Americans. The list is compiled of inappropriate names from all over the world.
Some of them are players from the past, players that young people may have never heard of before. But that doesn’t stop their names from giving you a good laugh.
But hey, these athletes clearly know their names are inappropriate and if they don’t get them changed, then they clearly don’t care. These poor athletes were unfortunate to have parents that didn’t think twice about their baby’s name.
But on a positive note, some of them are probably more popular for their name then their athletic achievements.
Not only was this an interesting top-20 to make, it was also hilarious. It would have been fairly easy to add another 20 names to the list because some names are just that comical, especially when you get into names from other countries.
So if you just so happen to read this and make it on the list, don’t blame us, blame your parents for your funny, vulgar or raunchy name.
20. Coco Crisp
He can look intimidating at first but when you find out he is named after cereal, you can’t help but laugh.
19. Angel Pagan
An Angel that doesn’t believe in God?
18. Yoshie Takeshita
Nobody cares how it’s pronounced, it doesn’t look like a flattering last name for an Olympic volleyball player.
17. Koskue Fukudome
The pronunciation may not be vulgar but add a “c” into the last name and it gets pretty raunchy. Kids were even sent home from school when he joined the Chicago Cubs because administrators didn’t believe it was a real name.
This one seems pretty explanatory.Take it as a baseball player or a nickname for a Chippendale.
15. Kokain Mothershead
Football player or drug dealer, you choose which seems more appropriate.
14. Craphonso Thorp
What exactly is this former Indianapolis Colts player going to crap on? He doesn't even play in the NFL anymore.
13. Ron Tugnutt
Funny last name, yet sounds like it could be very painful.
12. Harry Colon
He may be an NFL defensive back, but this just sounds like something that should be checked out by a doctor.
11. Karen Cockburn
Sounds painful experience if you find this gymnast in your bed.
10. Fair Hooker
A wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns but his name is perfect for a prostitute standing on a street corner
9. B.J. Lovett
I’m not sure if the B.J. is a shortened version or not but it sure makes him seem very sensual.
8. Dick Butkus
As if the last name Butkus isn’t bad enough, why would someone name their child Richard? Even Rich Butkus would have been better than calling him Dick.
7. Lucious Pusey
Let’s just say that this former Eastern Illinois football player ultimately changed his last name to Seymour.
6. Dick Shiner
Once again, this one is pretty self-explanatory.
5. Guy Whimper
He is a 6’5’’, 300lbs. offensive tackle for the Jacksonville Jaguars; the name just doesn’t quite add up.
4. Pete LaCock
The capitalization of this name just makes it even worse. He gets the double whammy on the first and last name.
3. Grant Balfour
Grant means “to give” and ball four represents a walk in baseball. Not exactly the best name for this Oakland A’s pitcher.
2. Rusty Kuntz
If he were a girl, it would possibly be number one on the list; nobody would want to mess with her.
1. Dick Trickle
A NASCAR driver that sounds like he has symptoms of prostate problems. Yeah, this one definitely deserves the top spot on the list.
