12 NFL Players With Brilliantly Unusual Names

12 NFL Players With Brilliantly Unusual Names

One of the best parts of watching NFL coverage, regardless of your interest in the sport, is watching the players introduce themselves and the college they attended at the start of the game. The reason this is so entertaining is due to the large volume of unusual names present among NFL players, and we have picked out some of the very best for your enjoyment.

Tip: For extra fun, imagine George Hamilton saying these names during commentary.

D'Brickashaw Ferguson

The king of unusual names, D'Brickashaw is a man who's name is almost as intimidating as his massive frame. Is there a more suitable name for an offensive lineman? He may be gone from the league now but this name is one of the best ever.

Greedy Williams- Cleveland Browns


Greedy in name, greedy by nature. He was given the nickname as an infant by his aunt but now as an NFL cornerback the nickname is quite appropriate.

Randy Bullock- Tennessee Titans

Tennessee Titans kicker Randy Bullock has a name more suited to Pornography than professional sports, but his habit of failing to perform means he wouldn't be a big name attraction.

Prince Tega Wanogho- Kansas City Chiefs


The prince of the offensive line, Wanogho was actually born in Nigeria before moving to the US in 2014 to pursuit a basketball career. He made the switch to football and with a frame like that you can see why.

JuJu Smith-Schuster- Pittsburgh Steelers

One of the most famous NFL players around at the moment, JuJu has a very big social media presence and with a memorable name like that, who can blame him.

Ogbonnia Okoronkwo- LA Rams


Luckily his nickname is simply 'Obo' to make things easier for the poor commentators.

Rock Ya-Sin- Indianapolis Colts


Abdurrahman ibn Ramadan Ya-Sin or simply known as Rock plays cornerback for the Colts.

Equanimeous St. Brown- Green Bay Packers

Equanimeos sounds like a name of a Greek philosopher, not a wide receiver for the Packers!

Ndamukong Suh - Tampa Bay Bucaneers


An asbolute beast on the defensive line, we like to imagine he shouts "NDAMUKONG!" every time he sacks the quarterback.

Haha Clinton-Dix - Green Bay Packers

Green Bay Packers Rookie Minicamp
Ha ha! His name is actually HaSean, but everyone calls him Haha. Also, Dix. Don't let the name fool you, he's quite a talented rookie.

CeeDee Lamb- Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys wide receiver is actually named Cedarian but we prefer CeeDee as well.

Tuanigamanuolepola  Tagovailoa- Miami Dolphins

Tua Tagovailoa

Simply known as Tua and hailing from Hawaii, Tua could be the future of the Miami Dolphins franchise.
