A Mom re-names her son to match her misspelt tattoo

Ok, brace yourself for this one…. A 30-year-old woman from Kyrkhult, Sweden named Johanna Sandstrom just shared her story about the tattoo she got a few years ago of her kids’ names: Nova and Kevin.

But when she got home, she realized there was a big problem: The tattoo artist had accidentally written “Kelvin” instead of “Kevin.”

She went to a tattoo removal clinic, but when she found out how long and painful the process was, she decided to go a different direction . . . she and her husband decided to legally change Kevin’s name to Kelvin to match the tattoo.


And Johanna rationalized it like this:

“I’d never heard the name ‘Kelvin’ before. So when I thought more about it, I realized no one else had this name. It became unique. Now we think it’s better than Kevin.”

And Kevin/Kelvin wasn’t old enough to know the difference . . . so as far as he knows, he’s always been Kelvin.
