She's Sure to Be a Knockout

A baby in Britain has been named 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. It's a tradition in her mother's family to name kids after lots of boxers.

The tradition started with Autumn’s boxing-clever grandparents Brian and Sue – who gave their three children no less than 103 names between them.
Autumn's aunt Becky has 34 names, and says it could have been worse.
“We’re all named after different boxers – my brother is bare-knuckle boxers, Maria is named after Heavyweight and all my names are after British Heavyweight boxers.

“I was a bit worried when Maria first had Autumn because she said she was going to name her after all our names combined.

“Thankfully she toned it down." [Link]
