    BJ Penn had one of the easiest names to mock and is still relatively recognizable to this day.

    Granted he's not some huge star, but casuals from that era should know him.

    I would think it would have a small affect on marketing.

    The talent, drive, years of training, competive nature, athleticism, performance ext.... would be the major contributors to success.

    If it were not for their names nobody would even know who the fuck Bang and Kuntz were or that they fought each other

    Never liked how Rory rejected "The Canadian Psycho" and went with "The Red King" instead...

    Whoever advised Joe lauzon to go with "j-lau" needs to have their head examined.

    One time after a brawl, someone nicknamed me "Red Anus". I've never lived that down.

    I think about this all the time actually. You literally never see prominent athletes or celebrities or media members or any public figures really with weird names... and yet there can't really be any correlation between name coolness and talent... there are definitely people who just can't catch a break because they're named like Eugene Glucksburger and no one takes them seriously
