The highest empowerment a parent might feel is the moment when their children are born and they get to give the baby a name.
As you'll see, the majority of these names go way back, some as far back as the late 1800s.
Some are given names, while others are nicknames that just stuck and eventually became what these players were known by on and off the field.
You would have to think most athletes would love to know they're still being chronicled decades, even centuries, after they played their final games—I'm just not so sure this is why they'd want to be remembered.
As I'm sure there are humorous names not in this list, feel free to chime in with others that come to mind.
