But one Australian man named his daughter after his favorite soccer team – and he didn't tell his wife until the child was two years old.
Clare Smith wrote in to a magazine saying, "We chose our daughter's name, Lanesra, because it was unique and romantic. It wasn't (until) she was two that my husband told me it was actually his favorite soccer team, Arsenal, spelled backwards."
Social media users responded to the father's creative name online.
