In the list of life’s regrets, this shockingly isn’t one.

A British man decided to legally change his name to Bacon Double Cheeseburger as a show of his undying love of the sandwich.

"I’ve got no regrets at all."

Sam Smith, 33, told the U.K.’s Standard that the, “Bacon Double Cheeseburger was pretty much the first thing that came up,” after a night of drinking with his buddies who convinced him to do go ahead with the stunt. 

“It was the culmination of probably too many drinks in the pub where there was a conversation about names,” he said.

After he sobered up, he still embraced his new identity.

"I’ve got no regrets at all," he said.

So what do his parents think?

"My mum was furious but my dad thinks it's hilarious. He's more than happy to use my new name."

Another person not too pleased with the name apparently is Smith's fiancée.  "My fiancée is fairly reluctant about marrying a Cheeseburger. That's something we're discussing a lot. No girl ever dreams of spending her big day marrying a man called Bacon."

Who knows?  The odd name could have perks.  Remember the Burger and King couple who got married?  Fast food giant Burger King picked up the tab for their wedding.

For now, Smith proudly signs off his work emails as "B D Cheeseburger."
