The National Football League is home to some of the greatest names, first and last. From the names that cannot be pronounced, to the names that sound dirty to say, there is never a shortage of entertainment when it comes to players' labels. In this slideshow, 25 of the greatest names ever to hit the depth chart are listed (In no particular order).
The first man on the list is Guy Whimper, and with a scary name like that, it's easy to see why he is such a great player. Guy played his college football at East Caroline, and probably received hell for a name like that. He was drafted by the Giants in 2006 by the Giants, released September 4, 2010 and was signed by the Jaguars on November 2, 2010.
Maurice Purify majored in Criminal Justice in college. His name really fits the job, doesn't it?
He is the uncle of former Colorado running back Bobby Purify.
Tshimanga Biakabutuka is the one name that everyone laughs at. Everyone has their own pronunciation. This name would have been a lot funnier if I didn't have to check three or four times if it was spelled correctly.
Elvis Grbac may have the lowest vowel to consonant ratio in the NFL. Not to mention his first name is Elvis.
Captain Munnerlyn is probably the second best first name on the list. No it's not a nickname either, that's his real first name. Captain is currently the KR/PR for the struggling Carolina Panthers.
Lousaka's first name is good by itself, but having the last name Polite puts the icing on the cake. Lousaka is currently the Fullback for the Miami Dolphins.
Richie may just be the toughest man to detet on the Field. That is, if you can miss this 6'3" 324 lb monster.
Cory Lekkerkerker wins the award for the most repetitive name in the NFL, and the most fun to type. Unless you give it to his brother, Brad Lekkerkerker.
Demarcus Faggins is one name that you don't want to say near your family. Must be embarrassing to have that on the back of your jersey.
Aside from being one of the best defensive players ever to play the game, Dick Butkus also may have the funniest and most unfortunate name ever.
Chris Fuamatu-Ma'Afala may be one of the only players to have a last name that requires extra space, and spans from shoulder to shoulder. Chris retired from the NFL, but amassed over 900 yards and 10 touchdowns in his career.
Bronko Nagurski may be one of the scariest players to ever go up against, and his name contributes to this fear.
Fair Hooker, hailing from my home town of Cleveland. Fair may be an awkward first name, but I've never met anyone named Fair Hooker, nor have I ever met one.
Ben Gay is just an unfortunate way to shorten his full name, Benjamin. There are many players with the last name "Gay", but none are a Ben Gay like he is.
Anthony Midget is the shortest man to ever play cornerback. Let's hope he doesn't get stomped on out there. His name sounds similar to another name that could have hit this list, Dave Meggett.
Although I don't know what is going on in the picture, I know that Le-Lo L. Lang is an extremely entertaining name.
It is definitely true that Curry Burns. But is that what his parents were thinking about when they named him?
C.J. Ah You is a pretty funny name. It must have been really easy to call on him in class. "So who knows the answer? Ah, You!"
Yourhighness Morgan. Does this name really need an explanation?
Lucious is the only Pusey I've ever seen with dreadlocks. Just one of many names in the NFL that sounds dirty.
Webster Slaughter is a perfect name for Football. It's also a perfect name for a serial killer.
John David Booty may have had a worse High School experience then I did. His last name is just plain horrible.
Kirby Dar Dar is a very entertaining name. I'm still trying to decide whether it is two last names or a middle and last.
Dick Flowers has a really unfortunate surname. I couldn't find a picture of him so I chose a guy with another flower in his name, Derrick Rose.
Lofa Tatupu. A loaf of what? By the way, IT'S DWAYNE BOWE!
