The contenders in the 2015 Name of the Year Tournament have been unveiled. Sixty-four names made the cut due to their individuality, whether it resulted from marriage, foreign languages, legal name change, or parents with a wicked sense of humor. The number one seeds this year are Cherries Waffles Tennis, Littice Bacon-Blood, Mussolini Africano, and Dr. Electron Kebebew. They will face some stiff competition from Genghis Muskox, Malvina Complainville, Rev. Pierbattista Pizzaballa, Amanda Miranda Panda, and Beethoven Bong. The ultimate winner this year will no doubt eclipse the 2014 winner, Shamus Beaglehole. Check out the enlargeable bracket for all 64 names. Voting in each region will begin soon, so check back at Name of the Year or get updates through Twitter. -via Metafilter
