Alabama Parents Name Child "Krimson Tyde," Face Torrent of Twitter Criticism

by at . Comments

Move over, Bear Winslet. There's a new famous baby name for Twitter users to flip out over.

Summer and Steven Steele - residents of Andalusia, Alabama - have shown their pride for Nick Saban's national title-winning football team by naming their newborn daughter Krimson Tyde.

And the Internet has responded in kind… or not so in kind, to be more accurate.

"I would despise my parents if they named me Krimson Tyde," wrote one Twitter user upon learning of the moniker, while another added: "reevaluate your life if you name your kid "krimson tyde".

"I'm shocked, I didn't think people would make such a big deal about it," Summer Steele told Alabama Media Group.

But not everyone is coming down hard on the couple.

"I would definitely say to fulfill their fantasy. Stay Alabama fans and live every day to the fullest," says Shane Broadhurst. "I hate that they're having to go through that and hear a bunch of crap. You should be able to name your young'un what you want."

Broadhurst has two children, by the way. They are named Crimson Tide and Alleigh Bama.

I thinks it's cute. It's unique and doesn't sound bad at all. It sounds a lot better then what these stars name their children.


Gawd, wait until she starts getting her period! And using K and Y thinking they're being cute? That just lowers their IQ points and looks extra trashy. No wonder the rest of the world hates us!


I might be bias because I live in Alabama but I think it's a cute name. It's not that bad.
