A man has legally changed his name to Bacon Double Cheeseburger. This is not a joke.
His original name was Sam Smith, according to The Evening Standard, and he spoke with them about his decision.
“It was the culmination of probably too many drinks in the pub where there was a conversation about names.
“Bacon Double Cheeseburger was pretty much the first thing that came up. Everyone loves bacon don’t they?
“It was largely the most ridiculous thing we could think of. My friends were quite supportive of anything that makes me look silly, as good friends are.”
Well, this all escalated quickly. #BaconDoubleCheeseburger

The 33-year-old changed his name by U.K Deed Poll and signs his emails off as “B D Cheeseburger”.
There are a some people who don’t notice, but a few who really mind that he changed his name…
“I spend a lot of time in the Far East and most people out there wouldn’t know Bacon isn’t a standard British first name. But in Europe people think it’s pretty weird.
“What people call me is up to them but that’s my name legally speaking now. My mum was furious but my dad thinks it’s hilarious. He’s more than happy to use my new name.”
His fiance is understandably reluctant at the thought of becoming Mrs Cheeseburger.
“My fiancée is fairly reluctant about marrying a Cheeseburger. That’s something we’re discussing a lot. No girl ever dreams of spending her big day marrying a man called Bacon.
“But I’ve got no regrets at all. It’s been a very fun experience and it’s made a lot of people laugh.”
