Loud Mouthed Gamers: Well Bethesda threw down the challenge months ago: name your child which is born on 11/11/11, the Skyrim release date, Dovahkiin and receive free Bethesda games for life. It's happened.
That child shall forever hate his parents.
Why would he hate his parents? It's better then naming him a common name like Michael or whatever. I'd love to be named a cool name like that. Wouldn't matter to me if people made fun of my name.
Dovahkiin, is a unique and very cool name. Both of my kids have unique names. I think Dovahkiin will work well with the ladies, its a strong name.
Because the only reason he recieved that name was so the parents could get free stuff. They care more about free games than the actual name of their kid.
'Whos my namesake mum?' 'A video game character.' This is fail parenting. What losers.
Ehh, it did work out well for Zelda and Robin... But even so, I aways cry a little inside when I here news like this. Anyone remember the parents who named thier kid "Like"...after the facebook button?
Easy, just claims that he is russian.
unless he plays skyrim :P
"Ehh, it did work out well for Zelda and Robin..." To be fair, Zelda is a real name: http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
What bad parents. When you name a kid it should be after a family member not a game character so you can get free stuff
Ugh, I think everyone is just gonna call him Tom, so it's no big deal.
Better than naming him after a Twilight character
Or someone on Jersey Shore
Or Justin Bieber.... ¬¬
I think Dovahkiin is a badass name...
Maybe, but for a real life person in most places, not really.
The kid will appreciate it when he gets Elder Scrolls 8 for free on his PS5.
id name it altair or something
'it'? And no. Nobody should be named after a video game character.
yes it, i said IT. sue me.
I mean if it was a matter of life and death, like if I HAD to choose a video game character for my son, i'd name him over a common name. Like Marcus (Gears of War), or Drake (Uncharted) or Alan (Alan Wake), not names like Kratos (God of War), Altair (Assassin's Creed) and of course Dovahkiin.
There is nothing wrong with Altair and Kratos. Dovahkiin is taking it too far.
Could you imagine it? Some guy: Bethesda, somebody named their child Dovahkiin on 11/11/11. Bethesda: HOLY S**T SOMEBODY ACTUALLY DID IT? WE WERE ONLY JOKING.... um.... now we actually got to give them their prizes.... sigh.
Thanks for the life story mistr.
Haters are just hating that the kid now has a cool name which translates to Dragonborn. Bad parents? I wish my parents were that cool. :(
Better than the name of many other cultures seriously some people have 2 qq's in their names along with ks. Also better than misspelled names so I think its a great name that actually has a meaning and story behind it.
I bet people will just call him Tom...or Dovah, which may sound worse. Now I want to see how low people can go for free stuff, I bet there's no name that someone wouldn't name their kid for the right incentive.
