The resident of London was born as Simon Smith, but as Bruce Wayne became Batman, so did Simon Smith become Double Bacon Cheeseburger. That name is more than just a new legal appellation, but an expression of his inner identity, which is presumably greasy and delicious. The Evening Standard reports on him and other recent name changes in the UK:
He told the Sunday People: “A name is the least important part of your personality. It’s given to you by someone else.”
“Bacon Double Cheeseburger was the first name I came up with.”
The 33-year-old is one of a record-breaking 85,000 people who changed their name last year.
Others decided to name themselves over popular footballers like Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Man Utd star Wayne Rooney.
One couple called themselves Mr and Mrs Amazing, while a man preferred to be referred to as Bruce Wayne, the secret identity of Batman.
So now it will be necessary for the police to get a searchlight for not only the Bat-Signal, but also the Double Bacon Cheeseburger-Signal.
