Even if your child was born on Halloween, would give him this name?

by Randy Allen

What his parents thinking!  Even if he was born on Halloween, is that a good reason to give him this name?  Will it haunt him the rest of his life?

A family in Alexandria, Louisiana celebrated Halloween by having a child -- and naming him Frederick Krueger.

The baby shares the name with horror movie character, Freddy Krueger from the “Nightmare On Elm Street” movies.

The parents decided to name their son Frederick when they found out they would have to have a C-section done on Halloween. The boy’s father said Frederick is a family name but was also inspired by the horror movie franchise.

The baby and mother are doing well.
