There's a French rugby player called Faraj Fartass.
And an Indian cricketer with the name of Arshdeep.
De Kock is a Dutch surname with hundreds of thousands of people using that surname all over the world, Nothing funny with that surname other than a bit of history, Many of the ordinary Dutch people did not use any Surnames before Napoleon got hold of the Netherlands, They were forced then to register surnames and many people regarded it as a joke and gave all kinds of funny surnames - one of which I came across was Hoenderdoos. Unfortunately after Napoleon was defeated the usage of the fake surnames became permanent and the joke then backfired on the people.
as i said...
"There are so many... some which are only funny if you dont understand different languages"
I'm sure Hardik also isnt funny if you're Hindi.
and neither is Jailbert if you're french.
Jean Condom used to play for France.
There was a NASCAR driver called Dick Trickle.
"There was a NASCAR driver called Dick Trickle."
Only you would remember that, avid NASCAR fan that you are...telling...
Yes, I thought I was hearing things when I was watching the IPL the other day. Hardik was run out by Arshdeep! 3 names spring to mind in golf: Ivo Giner played on European tour Dick Lotz and Dick Mast played on PGA Tour in USA and/or secondary tour. Would have been great had those 3 played together in a major! Then of course there was the USA swimmer Misty Hyman.....not sure of her surname spelling but you get my drift....
Camille Chat. French hooker currently. Pronounced Cami Shat I've heard.

Shota Horie ...embarrassing for the lad knowing the meaning of ‘hori’
Well David Seaman and Nicky Butt used to cause a fair few giggles amongst Football fans....

Parents must think before they name their newborn children...my mum was never crude, she was a lady but she had a naughty sense of humour...she tells of a soldier she met during war years called "John Willy" and when I think of the great Irish Lion's captain, Willie John McBride, I wonder if his parents changed the order of his first names.
But none can be as bad as Fanny Chmelar, the German Olympic Alpine skier....how awful...surely she should change her name.
My gran had a video shop in Emmarentia in Joburg. There was a little Jewish lady that bought videos from her named Fanny Hymen.
