ANDALUSIA, Ala., Dec. 30 (UPI) -- An Alabama couple said their fondness for the University of Alabama led them to name their newborn son Krimson Tyde.
Summer and Steven Steele of Andalusia said they named their son, born Dec. 17, in honor of the University of Alabama's football team, the Alabama Media Group reported Monday.
"The reason we named him Krimson is that we are big Alabama fans and it is a very unique name and we loved it," Summer Steele said.
Steel said she was surprised to find some people don't approve of the name.
"I'm very shocked. I didn't think people would make a very big deal about it," she said.
"To people speaking negatively about us naming him Krimson, it's not their child nor family member so if they have nothing nice to say they don't need to say nothing at all," Steele said.
