Lisa C. Flores, a US mother, is fighting for the right to change her daughter, Viviana’s, middle name to ‘Awesome’.
Lisa promised her 11 year old son, Dominic, that he could name his sister as a reward for his accepting attitude towards the surprise arrival and all his help.
Now, Lisa is fighting the legal system to keep her promise. ‘Awesome’ wasn’t Dominic’s first choice of name, initially wanting to name his sister ‘Danger’.
However when Lisa said no, Dominic announced that he thought that having the middle name ‘Awesome’ would be cool.
Dominic, now 13, says that when his sister is older he wants her to be able to say, “My middle name is Awesome!”
