A British woman formerly named Ceejay Epton has changed her name to (deep breath): Ceejay A Apple B Boat C Cat D Dog E Elephant F Flower G Goat H House I Igloo J Jellyfish K Kite L Lion M Monkey N Nurse O Octopus P Penguin Q Queen R Robot S Sun T Tree U Umbrella V Violin W Whale X X-Ray Y Yo-Yo Z Zebra Terryn Feuji-Sharemi.
Why? Because she thought it would help teach her newborn son the ABCs; evidently, an alphabet book wouldn’t suffice.
From the UK’s Legal Deed Poll Service, which is responsible for name changes and which charges £10 for the service:
‘We wish “Miss Alphabet” the best of luck and bet her little boy will know the entire alphabet in next to no time.’
