Default The meaning of athletes names:

sometimes it can be fun looking up the meaning of athletes' names. here are three from the NBA and three from MMA followed by two from tennis. feel free to guess the people or add to the list of riddles. sources are easy to find in today's internet, such as wikipedia, behindthename and google...


two points for every right answer; one point for posting an accurate question:


1) younger two saints

2) richard blonde

3) earnest community

4) god is my judge, son of henry

5) the son of the brown man, holder of the heel

6) little black stream crossing

7) john martin of the colt

8) holder of the heel, dog lover

Junior dos Santos is wrong.

The "dos" does not mean 2 in portuguese. It does in spanish.

Dos Santos means "of Saints".
