Somehow, sticking a swear word (usually some form of the f-word) in the middle of a name helps add emphasis to the name.
Reasons can vary, from playing up how one feels about a person (which overlaps with Awesome McCoolname
), to reminding people about an aspect of that person.
Also, the swear word doesn't always have to go between the first and last name. If either of those is large enough, the swear word can go in the middle of the word if it fits.
