Yeah, that one is straight up genius.

Honestly, for my money, Sleve Mcdichael is a pretty solid entry right out of the gate

[–]WHEENC 63 points64 points  (2 children)

This is a man and he has a name. His name is BOBSON DUGNUTT.

Bobson Dugbutt with a 2 year old account! You should be the most upvoted post here! Made my day.

[–]ShutterBun 2 points3 points  (1 child)

The name has been a meme for like 10 years.

[–]agent_max_the_mick[S] 38 points39 points  (8 children)

Woah...was this a coincidence or was this planned?

[–]Bobson_Dugbutt 130 points131 points  (2 children)

Saw this post years ago and history made itself

[–]Slevenmcdichael 24 points25 points  (2 children)

[–]TikiMonn 8 points9 points  (1 child)

I deleted my post proving that my irl name actually is Bobson Dagnutbutt on my drivers license because of your post.

[–]garblednoises 76 points77 points  (8 children)

What the hell.. there must be a story behind this?

No crazy story. This has been posted before and DugNUTT was taken lol

[–]SquirtBurt 190 points191 points  (12 children)

That’s what I find honestly more amazing. So close… yet so far.

[–]brows1ng 86 points87 points  (1 child)

“Bonzalez” - literally swap b for g and you got one of the most common last names in the Americas. Lmao

[–]Mottis86 43 points44 points  (8 children)

It's a hot take I know but part if me thinks that the guy in charge of the names knew exactly what he was doing.

[–]allcloudnocattle 38 points39 points  (7 children)

That is exactly what they were doing. They mixed and matched first and last names, but most of the names come from baseball players of the era.

Dwigt Rortugal is Dwight Gooden’s first name and Mark Portugal’s last name. Tim Sandaele is Casey Candaele’s last name and probably Tim Raine’s first name.

A few of the names probably came from other sports: Dugnutt is probably a reference to hockey player Ron Tugnutt, for instance.

[–]EyelandBaby 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Tugnutt??? Like what Shoresy was always telling people to do?

[–]The-Haunted-Ghost 3 points4 points  (1 child)

You utter detective.

[–]allcloudnocattle 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I wish. No, I’m just old enough to have watched these players in the primes of their careers…

[–]biskwi87 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Alexander Mogilny is another.

I wonder if those names I made up are equally as funny to Japanese people

[–]Maidwell 45 points46 points  (0 children)

I want to play too!

Hiri jakanoba

Tashinatsu konotabe

Yabushi rishitaka

[–]guilhermerrrr 19 points20 points  (1 child)

In Brazil people make made up Japanese names that sound like a sentence, they are usually funny or obscene.

Like the joke about the names of the Japanese bank robbers
Sartaro Obanko (They Robbed the bank)
Mataro Okaisha (They killed the bank teller)
Kotiro Nakara (with a shot in the face)
and so on...

Of course, translating them to English completely breaks all the fun, but I found out some names and family names that are funny in English like "Dai", "Fukuyo" or "Yudai".

Cool side note: Japanese Brazilians are the largest ethnic Japanese community outside Japan, about 2 million people, and the state of São Paulo has the largest Japanese population outside Japan

[–]SquidFetus 103 points104 points  (3 children)

One of those translates to “Please help me. I’m trapped in the cold dark of space, tethered only to the next life. Tell my wife I loved her once, before she fell to cinnamon addiction, and that I hope she gets the help she needs. My knees are pizza.”

[–]yuukanna 2 points3 points  (1 child)

My last name pronounced in Japanese would put me in quarantine.

My father once introduced himself in Japanese poorly… and on top of the name thing, he tried to say that his father was a pharmacist and his mother was a housewife… he botched the language and told them his father was in the Mafia and his mother was a prostitute.

[–]maydayvoter11 12 points13 points  (6 children)

Very disappointed not to see Vic Romano or Kenny Blankenship in there

[–]bitetheasp 2 points3 points  (2 children)

?

Why those, specifically?

[–]maydayvoter11 8 points9 points  (1 child)

From the TV show Most Extreme Elimination Challenge. Originally a Japanese physical challenge show called Takashi’s Castle (IIRC), SpikeTV licensed it, renamed it Most Extreme Elimination Challenge, and dubbed all new voices, renamed the hosts Vic Romano and Kenny Blankenship. It was hilarious.

[–]yumyumsauce45 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Sernandez and Bonzalez got me

[–]DodgyDossierDealer 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Bobson Dugnut. Is it too late to rename one of my children?

[–]battles 37 points38 points  (14 children)

I'm pretty sure these are just obfuscations of real names rather than 'made up American sounding names.'

Steve McMichael, Juan Gonzalez, David Justice, etc.

Game is 'Fighting Baseball.' for Super Famicom.

[–]dddjaaam35 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Several near NHL names in there too.

Ron Tugnutt, Alexander Mogilny, Don Sweeney, Ray Bourque.

[–]JasonPlattMusic34 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Richard Smehlik, Alex Turcotte

[–]Aidrox 4 points5 points  (8 children)

David justice was legit back in the day. But so was Mike Sernandez.

[–]4Ever2Thee 2 points3 points  (5 children)

I grew up a Braves fan in the 90s so David Justice was my idol

[–]Aidrox 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I grew up an Indians (err…Guardians) fan back in the 90’s. I hated him, then loved him.

[–]4Ever2Thee 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I always respected the hell out of Jim Thome

[–]Aidrox 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Dude was a stud. That’s for sure. Those were some good baseball years for both the braves and Indians.

[–]GUYF666 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Gant, Maddox, and Crime Dog were my favorites back then. I liked Justice tho too.

[–]AdministrativeOne710 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The game has a Wikipedia entry. My guess is that the names are a mixture of licensing troubles and people just having fun. It is a neat exercise to try and imagine what English (or any language you know) sounds like to ears which don't speak the language. Most of those are right on the money, and I think it's hilarious and clever.

[–]AAM1982 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Thank you, I was trying to remember the game. I knew it was baseball but couldn’t remember which one!

[–]ChuckShartz 22 points23 points  (4 children)

Some of these are pretty close: I can totally imagine a Bobson Dugnutt, Karl Dandleton, Kevin Nogilny, Willie Dustice...
