These are the best and funniest names you may hear called during the 2019 MLB Draft

When the MLB Amateur Draft starts on Monday, you will get to hear names. Dozens of names. Hundreds of names. There will be a full alphabet soup of names called. And while you can get your analysis of the quality of the players with those names elsewhere, today we want to focus solely on the best names eligible to be called for this year's Draft. And what do we mean by that? We mean the most unique, the ones that roll off our tongues like a beautiful melody or those that remind us of our favorite 1990s sitcom. You know -- best.

Here are my 10 favorite names from MLB Pipeline's Top 200 players, meaning you can expect them to be called any time in the early rounds of the Draft:

1. Braden Shewmake

2. Brett Baty

3. Shea Langeliers

4. Cameron Cannon

5. Kyren Paris

6. John Doxaxis

7. Noah Song

8. Rece Hinds

9. John Rave

10. Jaxx Groshans
