Alabama Mom Defends Naming Son 'Krimson Tyde'

An Alabama woman is defending naming her newborn son “Krimson Tyde” because she and her family are huge fans of the Alabama Crimson Tide college football team. 

“The reason we named him Krimson is that we are big Alabama fans and it is a very unique name and we loved it,” Summer Steele told

She said she was surprised by all of the vitriol, and emphasized that she only cared about what her family, which approves, thought. 

“To people speaking negatively about us naming him Krimson, it’s not their child nor family member so if they have nothing nice to say they don’t need to say nothing at all,” Steele said.

Krimson Tyde Steele was born on December 17.
