A 33-year-old man who changed his name by deed poll after a night in the pub told the Evening Standard that the meal was the first thing to pop into his head when his friends suggested he change his name.
“It was the culmination of probably too many drinks in the pub where there was a conversation about names,” he said, adding, “Everyone loves bacon, don’t they?”
He says his friends were very supportive of his choice (why wouldn’t they be?) as he made an application to the United Kingdom’s Deed Poll Service. The paperwork for his new moniker arrived a few days later, again, when he was drinking with the same buddies. He signed the documents and sealed his fate.
Despite those boozy decisions, the man says he has “no regrets at all,” because he’s made a lot of people laugh. It’s fun, he says, and he’s proud to sign his name now as “B.D. Cheeseburger” when he books hotels on business trips. His fiancée, however, is “fairly reluctant about marrying a Cheeseburger.”
