Whilst on the subject of bizarre names, there was Michael Wyldbore Smith christened with an old ancestral family name as his middle name. Basically he was a bog standard Smith but as he made his way in life he decided it might help his career and social standing if he converted to a double barrelled name. Despite much ribbing he changed his surname by deed poll to Wyldebore-Smith. In doing so however he forgot to cancel his middle name so Michael, once nicknamed 12 bore, is now endearingly called ‘Wyldebore Wyldebore’ by friends or Sanglier-Sanglier when in France.
