The 2014 B1G recruiting All-Name Team

Now that signing day is in the books, we have a whole lot of new names to learn when it comes to Big Ten football players. Some names, however, are more interesting than others.

While the league might not have gained a moniker as great as new Eastern Michigan defensive lineman Lion King, there are still some players whose names will make us smile -- and/or make us double- and triple-check the spelling.

We've got a Madre and a Mister, a Freedom and a Geronimo, a linebacker who shares a first name with a Wu-Tang Clan member and an offensive lineman whose name should fit perfectly in Nebraska. And if you don't like it, an Illinois defensive lineman might just declare his first name on you.
