A woman in Sweden got tattoos of her kids' names, but the artist put an extra L in Kevin, making Kelvin. After a while she liked the name and changed her kid's name to Kelvin.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. A woman in Sweden got a tattoo of her kids' names, Nova and Kevin - except the tattoo artist inserted a random L into her son's name. And instead of Kevin, she ended up with the name Kelvin inked on her arm. Getting it surgically removed was too expensive, so she just left it there. And after a while, she kind of got into the name Kelvin and decided the easiest thing to do, instead of changing the tattoo, she changed her kid's name. Little Kelvin's only 2 years old, so maybe he didn't notice. It's MORNING EDITION.
