Football fan names daughter after favourite team

Phakaaathi Reporter

A man from the suburb of Blacktown in the state of New South Wales, Australia cleverly named his daughter after the team he supports, which is Arsenal.

Arsenal fans in the stands during the FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium, London.

The man and his wife were determined to give their daughter a unique name when she was born, the father named her Lanesra.

Clare Smith went with the name her husband picked for their daughter because she thought it was unique and romantic.

Smith’s husband told her two years later that he had spelt his favourite team’s name, Arsenal backwards to come up with the name Lanesra.
