The Top Ten
1 Dermophis donaldtrumpi (Donald Trump)

A new amphibian discovered in Panama has been named after U.S. President Donald Trump, following his comments about climate change. It is called the Dermophis donaldtrumpi. The creature is blind and buries its head in the sand.

2 Freddiemercury (Freddie Mercury)

The late Queen frontman received his very own asteroid on his 70th birthday. The band's guitarist, Brian May, announced that Asteroid 17473 was renamed "Freddiemercury" on September 5, 2016, honoring the rocker's outstanding influence in the world of music.

3 CR7 (Cristiano Ronaldo)

A galaxy discovered in 2015 was named after the Real Madrid star player. Given the name "CR7" (his initials and shirt number), the galaxy was said to have existed when the universe was only 800 million years old.

4 The Hoff (David Hasselhoff)

An unusual crab species was named after the former "Baywatch" actor as the crab had a hairy chest.

5 Tom Cruise law (Tom Cruise)

A "Tom Cruise law" was passed when the actor purchased a sonogram machine for his ex-wife Katie Holmes during her pregnancy. The law prohibits non-medical people from buying personal ultrasound machines.

I'm interested as to why. Are they dangerous?
