But now Megan and Eric Kellermeyer have trumped both bonkers Facebook fans by naming their new baby, Dovahkiin, after the main character in the smash hit video game, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Bethesda software, makers of the game announced back in February that anyone who had a child on the game's launch date, 11/11/11, and named him or her 'Dovahkiin' would win free games for life.
While the company now admit the offer was 'something of a spoof', they now have to keep their word – and provide the family with free computer games for life.
Writing on their blog, the Megan and Eric said:
"Mama and baby are doing perfect. The Doctor said it was a perfect delivery. Dovahkiin Tom Kellermeyer was born at 6:08pm on 11/11/11.
"He was 8 pounds 1/2 ounce and is 19 1/2 inches long. Our daughter Kyari is very excited to have a baby brother.
"We conceived long before hearing of it. But it's been a tough year and I wanted to do something special for my son. My daughter has a unique name. I wanted him to have a unique name as well.
"I am so picky about boy names that I was having a lot of trouble finding just the right one. We've toyed with Dovahkiin and the ramifications of naming a child that name, and that name being based on a video game character (however awesome), and what impact that would have on him.
"But the more I thought of it, the more I settled on Dovahkiin, contest or no."
Whatever the playground implications of the choice, Little Dovahkiin is in good company with his bonkers name-sake, as the game starring the character has made $450 in just two days...
What do you reckon?
A name with a good story or a totally ridiculous way to choose one?
