Baby Autumn Brown has a name to live up - in fact she has over 25 of them.
The little girl's mother Maria, in keeping with her boxing-mad family's bizarre tradition, decided to give her 25 middle names - all culled from the greatest exponents inside the ring.
Her full name, which left register office staff in Perton, Wolverhampton reeling is: Autumn Sullivan Corbett Fitzsimmons Jeffries Hart Burns Johnson Willard Dempsey Tunney Schmeling Sharkey Carnera Baer Braddock Louis Charles Walcott Marciano Patterson Johansson Liston Clay Frazier Foreman Brown.
Maria told the city's Express and Star: "The whole thing came about because both my mom and dad are obsessed with boxing and have a bit of a daft sense of humor.
"When I was young I couldn't ever remember my name. It took me to the age of 10 to memorize it all."
The 33-year-old mother added: "I'm hoping Autumn has a good sense of humor with her name. It's never done me any harm though."

A stalker is on the loose — and may be watching and listening in your bedroom, bathroom or office meeting.
Just ask Tim Kuykendall, whose cell phone provided a portal through which a hacker gained access to the most intimate details of his life, recording family members' conversations and snapping pictures of what they were wearing.
“We’ve had [times] where I’m having a conversation in my home and I get a voice mail and the conversation’s replayed; received a phone call or even checked my voice mail from a message and while I push 'OK' to listen to [it] I’m hearing a conversation going on in the living room between my daughter and my wife,” he told FOX News.

Most wild birds scavenge for scraps wherever and whenever they can. But in Terry Quinn's garden, mealtimes are a more orderly affair. Every day, he rings a bell to signify dinner is served. A robin duly appears, then swoops down on his outstretched palm and snaffles a beakful of succulent mealworms. Mr Quinn, 70, said: "It gives me a real thrill. There is something special about having normally wild and timid birds trusting enough to land on your hand to feed."
