The name game, vol. 3

Steve Tchiengang (Vanderbilt)
Reasons it's funny:
1) Last name is pronounced "chen gang," which is very close to "chain gang."
2) He has a unique last name, which is not surprising given that he's from Cameroon. But I love that it's paired with a very typical American name, Steve.

Just-in'love Smith (Siena)
You've got to be kidding me.

Jermaine Jackson (Rider)
Would you rather be overshadowed by a younger brother who becomes one of the most famous people on the planet, or be a backup forward for the Rider Broncs? I honestly don't know the answer to that.

Orion Outerbridge (Rhode Island)
Unique in its duality: first name brings to mind one of the most recognizable constellations and a hunter in Greek mythology, but last name is Outerbridge.

Lex Mongo (Massachusetts)
Would be a great movie character:
Bad guy: Who are you, anyway?
Lex: The name's Mongo. Lex Mongo.

No, wait. Maybe a kids' show character:
Dora the Explorer: Hi there, friend. What's your name?
Lex: Yo soy Lex Mongo! Let's go outside and play!
