    Mother names son after Martin Luther King


    Two months ago i met a woman with a cute baby and said wow u have a beautiful daughter! .She laughed so hard and said its a boy ! A boy? I was so shocked cos her baby looked like a girl.Such a cute boy.little did i know i was in for a surprise! What's his name i asked?
    His name is Mlk .Mlk as in Martin luther king? Yes she said , but its a coincidence that hes named after Reverend king even though its such a great honour so she told me the funny story of how her adorable son was named after Rev King and here it is.When my husband and i found out we were expecting we instantly started looking for names,he decided we should name him after his longtime best friend Martin and i on the other hand wanted us to name him after my brother who was called Luther King!.He wouldn't give up the race to name our son Martin and neither did would i give up naming him after my brother, so we had to compromise and ended up joining both names! Martin and Luther-king thats how we ended up naming him after Reverend King and even though its wasnt intentional its such a great honour for our little king.With the parent's consent i have added photos of the little MLk and what a cutie pie he is.Another Mlk  in his own special way
