A man has gone viral online after he legally changed his name so he could see it "up in the lights all over the world."

The internet can't believe he changed his name to this. Keep scrolling for the full story and to find out what his new name is...

Naming your child will never be an easy task.

Giving a tiny human a name that they will identify by for the rest of their lives is always going to bring with it a little bit of pressure.

There are literally thousands of names to choose from...

And they all carry their own unique meanings and backgrounds.

It can be difficult to determine which name is suitable for a newborn...

Because who knows which name will eventually suit them best?

And, to add to this pressure...

You have to come up with a name that your child will be happy and content with throughout their life.

So that's why most parents play it safe by settling with a name that would be considered as "normal" by most.

Sarah, Rebecca, Jack, James... You can't really go wrong with these kinds of names, can you?

But, of course, there will always be the parents who pick rather unusual names for their children.

We all know a child with a slightly bizarre name.

Celebrities tend to lead this trend of bizarre name choices...

Remember when Gweneth Paltrow called her daughter Apple? Or all the times Kim Kardashian named her 4 children North, Saint, Chicago, Psalm?

And who can forget?

When Frank Zappa named his kids Moon Unit, Dweezil, and Diva Thin Muffin. Our minds are still boggled.

Well, for the children of the rich and famous, a strange name isn't too big of a deal...

But, for us regular folk, an unusual name can be quite detrimental.

Some people live in complete turmoil over the names their parents chose for them...

And, in some extreme cases, people have been known to legally change their birth name to something a little more appropriate.

But a bizarre case has surfaced this week.

A man has gone viral after he legally changed his name in a bid to be known around the world.

The man, formerly known as Deano Wilson, is an audio and visual installation engineer from the UK.

Wilson says he prides himself on his "day-to-day" comedy jokes, with his latest stunt seeing him change his name.

But this is no ordinary name...

Wilson clearly doesn't like to do things half-hearted.

He has changed his name in a bid to be known across the world...

And to get back at people who laughed when he claimed that one day the whole world would know who he was.

He says his new name is the "height of comedy."

Now, the thirty-nine-year-old says the whole world will recognize his name.

And there's a huge reason for this...

Because his new name is something we really do see all the time.

"People laugh at me when I say ‘one day I will be so famous, the whole world will recognize my name."

"So, what better way to do so by having my name in lights in every building, in every country, in every language all over the globe. No matter where you go, my name is illuminated," he continued. 

As for how his family and friends reacted?

Well, apparently they think it's the "funniest thing ever."

In fact...

When you think about it, his new name is kind of genius - for the purposes of why he's done it at least.

Drumroll, please...

Wilson has legally hanged his name to "Fire Exit." Yep, really. Wilson (or Fire Exit, should we say), even joked that people will "run to me in an emergency" and "look for me to feel safe." It's a bold move, to say the least. For more like this, scroll on for a list of the weirdest celebrity baby names...
