I didn't see a funny player names thread for 12 yet, so I'll start off with this wonderful gem:

Here are a few:

Mr. Doudle's nickname is as given. I didn't add it; I swear. (I felt I had to add Mr. So's, however.)... And Cass Elliot is ugly! Whoda thunk it?

Also, here's one player I'm keeping an eye on...

I'm told he can't lose.

An unique one I saw from a custom historical file.

Beau Fort

I can imagine the confusion:
"What is your name?"
"Beau Fort"
"And what is your last name Beaufort?"
"No, my name is Beau Fort."
"Yes we know that, but what is your last name?"...

I just added a new guy to the DB and his first name is JOAN. Thought they mispelled it so I checked several different sources we use and sure enough..his first name is Joan. Does that qualify??? Parents must have wanted a daughter..

I love the double name phenomenon in sports games.

I don't think I've seen one in either OOTP or FOF yet, though.

The last I remember having is one in the NFL2k series where I had a reserve tight end named Lawrence Lawrence.

My favorite of all time was a pitcher named "Dimaster Delgado" a 1 star pitcher from an oniine league I was in on Ootp 11. A close second is Addie Oostermeer.

All fear the Di master!

I believe Dimasther is an actual real life player (Braves organization I think).. I have him with my AAA team in Las Vegas (Blue Jays) in year 2020, he has a career MBL record of 3-7 6.75 ERA with 22 G 13 GS (appeared in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018).

I figure it's probably a fairly common OOTP name, but I just saw Richard Wagner. He spent 2011 in Rookie ball after being in AAA for half of 2010.
