8. Rojesterman Farris II, Hawaii DB
Biographical Information: Freshman defensive back from Coral Springs, Florida. Was ranked in the Miami Herald Top 150 recruits and earned second-team All-Broward County honors as a senior. Also ran track in high school, with his 4×100-meter relay team finishing 3rd at the 2015 FHSAA Region 4 Class 2A meet. Born in Saginaw, Michigan. Parents are Lisa and Rojesterman Farris, Sr.
Fun Fact from Official Team Bio: His nickname is “Roe.” I Googled that word because I knew it actually meant something, and it turns out that it means “the mass of eggs contained in the ovaries of a female fish or shellfish, typically including the ovaries themselves, especially when ripe and used as food.” He might want to go by “Ro” instead, from now on. Just a suggestion.
Why I love the name: We have seen Rich Queen (honorable mention) and Milord Juste (#13) in this study of names. Now, we have their royal jester man. Boy, is he a hoot!
Rojesterman Farris II is just a superb full title, and the best part is definitely that he isn’t the first person in his family to be named that. His dad decided that he liked his name so much that he’d bestow it upon his son as well. I couldn’t be more on-board with this thought process, and am now thinking of naming my own firstborn son Rojesterman Farris III Sullivan. He’ll thank me someday, without a doubt.
