Fan names child born on 11/11/11 ‘Dovahkiin’; earns lifetime supply of Bethesda titles
In the lead up to the release of Skyrim, Bethesda provided an offer to fans – anyone who had a child born on 11/11/2011 – Skyrim’s release date – and named it ‘Dovahkiin’ would end up nabbing themselves a lifetime supply of Bethesda titles. No doubt they never expected anyone actually taking them up on their offer, but die-hard fans being die-hard fans, someone has actually done exactly this.
8 pound 1/2 ounce Dovahkiin Tom Kellermeyer was welcomed into the world on 11/11/2011, and now has one of the most infamous names around. Preceeding his arrival, his mother wrote:
“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.”
….admit it, lady. You just wanted the lifetime supply of Bethesda titles. And given how amazingly awesome Skyrim is, I don’t blame you.
But naming your baby Dovahkiin? Not sure many would take up that challenge.
However, we here at Save Game wish your baby all the best and foresee greatness in his future. Talk about a lot to live up to….
