We once had a player called Septimus Atterbury, which isn't rude, but is a fucking brilliant name.

Beat me to it.  Wonderful name.

Manny Panther - cool cat recruited to add some bite in midfield, turned out to be a right pussycat.

I recall an opposing team's substitute coming on at the County Ground and, when it was announced that his first name was Julian, lots of amusement and catcalls ensued. To his credit, he waved at the Shrivenham Road at the end of the game.

To my mind, the archetypal footballing name was Billy Tucker. The Alf Tupper of football.

I do remember the stadium announcer struggling to suppress a guffaw or two with the Reading no 8, Wayne Wanklyn, before a game in the late 70's.
