Amanda and Stephen Preston decided to name their son after the names of an entire football team.

The Burnley supporters decided to name their son Jensen Jay Alexander Bikey Carlisle Duff Elliot Fox Iwelumo Marney Mears Paterson Thompson Wallace Preston. "We had already decided to call him Jensen as he is Amanda's favourite player, but we couldn't decide on a middle name so we thought why not go for the whole team," says Stephen.

"The couple said they would have done exactly the same thing if they had a girl - although would have instead given her the first name Briany after the goalkeeper."

Do parents ever think before naming their children such ridiculous long and wierd names. How about when the little boy starts learning how to spell his name? lol.
