Weird World: Bond fan changes his name to all the movie titles

James Bond fan David Fearn has changed his name - to all 21 official 007 film titles. The 23-year-old is now called - 'James Dr No From Russia With Love Goldfinger Thunderball You Only Live Twice On Her Majesty's Secret Service Diamonds Are Forever Live And Let Die The Man With The Golden Gun The Spy Who Loved Me Moonraker For Your Eyes Only Octopussy A View To A Kill The Living Daylights Licence To Kill Golden Eye Tomorrow Never Dies The World Is Not Enough Die Another Day Casino Royale Bond'.

James, of Walsall, Staffordshire, said: "I wanted to be James Bond and now I am - it's the ultimate fantasy."

The 69-word name change is the longest in the UK Deed Poll Service's history. It comes as a survey of British birth certificates found 36 boys - and girls - nationwide have been named 'Arsenal'. The survey by found football a common inspiration for names with three boys given the first names 'David Beckham' and 28 'Brooklyn' after his eldest son. Another 29 were named 'Gazza'.

Golf fans named 1,191 sons 'Tiger' while some sports fans preferred brand names - two children being called 'Reebox' and three named 'Adidas'. Cinema was also an inspiration - the survey found six boys with the first name 'Gandalf', one named 'Harry Potter' and two lads called 'Superman'. Spokeswoman Sarah Malone said: "It seems many of us are happy to take hero worship to a whole new level, naming our children after the stars we admire."
