25 Most Inappropriate Names in Sports History

23. Gregor Fucka

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.
