People name their kids after athletes and celebrities all the time.
I know for the longest time Peyton was the most popular baby name in the state of Tennessee after Colts QB and former Volunteer Peyton Manning.
This though, sounds a little crazy, but then again it is from someone in Cleveland.
Pregnant Cleveland radio host Cherise Navidad, who maintains that LeBron James‘ one-hour “Decision” special on ESPN was “such a cruel thing to do,” has found a way to exact some revenge: she plans to name her second-born child after Dirk Nowitzki, the MVP of the team that took down LBJ and co.
Like most Americans, Navidad saw the need to share her commitment with the Twittersphere, tweeting that she would name her unborn son after the Dallas Mavericks‘ forward if they won, adding the hashtag #cavsformavs.
The “binding contract” as she referred to it (click here to see the original tweet) spread like wildfire to her 400-plus followers, who naturally had mixed reactions to the impulsive proclamation.
So her son will be named Dirk Navidad?
I have heard worse names, but still when he is 12 and explaining why his name is Dirk will it go something like this.
“My mom was extra salty at Lebron James even though he was a free agent and could sign with whatever team he wanted to. She became a Dallas Maverick fan overnight even thought the Mavericks could care less on about Cleveland. Remember twitter? Well she tweeted she would name her son Dirk if Mavs won, of course they did now I am stuck with a German name.”
