Maybe Too Much Awesome?

We all know that one can be awesome. But, is it too much, to name a child that?


If a mom in Alaska gets her way, her 1-year-old daughter will go by the middle name “Awesome.”




“She’s just fun and happy and super smart and it fits her personality,” Lisa Flores told ABC News of her daughter, Viviana. “It just fits. She’s an awesome little girl.”

Flores, 36, and the mother of one other child, 14-year-old son Dominic, filed a petition in her hometown of Juneau in February to change Viviana’s middle name from Contea to Awesome.

Flores has completed the requirements of both notifying Viviana’s birth father and filing a four-week public notice in the local newspaper. The public notice landed Flores and her family on the front page of the local newspaper, The Juneau Empire, which came as a surprise to Flores.

“I don’t understand all the attention,” Flores told ABC News.

She has a hearing scheduled for July 7, at which time she will go before a judge and explain why her daughter should be named Viviana Awesome Flores.



What do you think? Is this a good or bad decision?
