25. Damore’ea Stringfellow, Ole Miss WR

Biographical Information: Sophomore wide receiver from Perris, California. Sat out in 2014 after transferring from Washington, where he played as a freshman. Former Under Armour All-American and consensus top-100 recruit. Parents are Torrey and Khalilah Kerl.

Fun Fact from Official Team Bio: His middle name is Denzell, because Denzel just wasn’t long enough

Why I love the name: When the name “Damore” is too boring for your liking, you need to toss a few more letters on the end of it. That’s exactly what Damore’ea’s parents did here, and they really knocked it out of the park, in my humble opinion. That apostrophe and extra ‘ea’ really accentuate a stellar first name. Additional points were awarded here for “Stringfellow,” which is just a really pleasant last name that emits warmth and friendship. Really makes you feel welcome when you say it, you know? Additional additional points to Damore’ea’s parents for combining the two (Damore’ea and Stringfellow) into a top-25 name that most broadcast announcers will pronounce incorrectly, guaranteed.
