In Name Only

Baby Named After Video Game

Dovahkiin-Skyrim
The challenge was simple, if not easy: Have a baby born on 11/11/11, and name it after Skyrim video game character Dovahkiin. The prize was mighty: every ZeniMax/Bethesda game free, for life. And the outcome? Totally outrageous.

On 11/11/11, Megan and Eric Kellermeyer welcomed little Dovahkiin into the world. In a showing of great mercy, they blessed him with the middle name Tom -- a wholly normal name that he'll be able to go by if he so chooses.

My take? It's bad, but not so bad. Like I said, the kid got a normal middle name. And, for a few-week-old, he's pretty cute. And the parents seem pretty cool -- check out their blog for more insight into the naming decision.
