Let me tell you a little bit about a boy named Spurrier Urban Wiley.
This name is not backwards, and this is very much real as far as we can tell. Spurrier Urban Wiley, the son of Jen Wiley, got his name from – you guessed it – Steve Spurrier and Urban Meyer. Jen and her husband, who are BIG Gator fans (as if you needed a billboard to lead you to such conclusions), named their child after Urban Meyer’s Florida team won the title in 2006 when their son was conceived.
And while Spurrier is fine name that is destined to stay (well, for now), Jen no longer wants her son’s middle name to be Urban after he was named the coach at Ohio State.

“I want to change his middle name,” she said.
Wiley actually has to travel to Ohio several times a year for work; so ironically, Spurrier Urban Wiley was born in Ohio.
The name doesn’t faze the now 4-year-old Spur. He doesn’t really understand his mom’s frustration, but he’s playing along.
“He wants to be Spur Willy Nilly Silly Bear Wiley,” said Wiley.
Wiley said anything is better than Urban.
It’s a name that reminds her of the letter the former Gator coach wrote her son shortly after his birth.
In it, Urban Meyer wrote, “I look forward to growing with you as a Gator over the years.”
Wiley’s husband isn’t on board with the change, and she said she won’t officially change her son’s name unless her husband agrees.
If he does, she’s thinking Tim after Tim Tebow, the great Gator quarterback who is becoming a star in the NFL.
The dream of having a classmate named Muschamp is alive and well, folks. Don’t give up yet.
