Here are my favorite non-Brazilian names:
Johann de Kock
I like Ibrahim Ba, too. He's nicknamed Ibu or something. Where is he right now?
My best pick in the last World Cup is Papa Bouba Diop. Sounded so cool to me when JP Dellacamera called his name after the sensational goal.
African names are my favorites!
Wolfgang Wolf of Wolfsburg
jacky peeters of belgium
Remember the player whose name was Digital Tipikaka...i can't spell the last name it was somehtin like that though...that was a cool name
INamoto, Suzuki, Ronaldinho
There was this old English player missing his 2 front teeth named Nobby Styles. Doesn't get much better than that.
Damien Duff gets honorable mention.
What about the Italian players first names? Like Gianluca and Gianluigi...?
Long My Dong of Vietnam.
Piyapong Pue-on of Thailand.
And of course:
There is and Argentinos Juniors Player
Named: Leonardo Pisculichi
Vitalis "Digital" Takawira.
I really like Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink (Chelsea's dutch top-scorer).
But the best name must be Terror Lekota, a south african cabinet member, who got the nickname Terror as a footballer in his youth. And it stuck. He is almost never called by his christian name in the media.
Gianluca Pagliuca (sp?) is one of my favorite Italian names.
Danny S h i t t u
Kaka from Brazil
Ted Eck. Just sounds good. Funny if repeated fast.
Here's a few who are always starters on my All-Name Team:
Ive always been partial to Oliver Kahn myself.
Even the NAME sounds Badass.
I can't believe I forgot my star striker:
Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink!!
I personally hate the player, but you have to admit taht Mamadou Diallo is a pretty sweet name.
As is El-Hadji Diouf.
