Weird names seem to be all the rage these days. A trucker in the US has just won the legal right to change his name to Ynot Bubba. Previously known at Justin Brady, this dude decided that since he no longer had a relationship with his adoptive family, there was no reason to keep his name. A judge allowed him the right and he has now officially changed his name. His second choice was More Chek.

Implications - The right to legally change a given name is controversial, yet these legal battles often fair in favor of the name changer, who argues for their creative right to express themselves through proper nomenclature.
