A mother has spoken openly about the inspiration behind her son’s unusual name after being asked how she came up with the nickname.
Katie DeRouen recently shared a video of herself and her son on her TikTok page, where she was heard saying, “Bregman, what’s wrong with you? A ball?”
In one of the comments on the video, someone asked, “His name is so unique I’ve never heard it before. I love him. How did you come up with it?”
And Katie returned to TikTok to share another clip in which she responded to the person, explaining that she was named after baseball player Alex Bregman.
“Bregman got his name from that fine, tall glass, 6ft, muscular… I mean Alex Bregman,” she joked, before adding, “He’s named after Alex Bregman.”
Katie also revealed that she is an alumnus of Louisiana State University, where Bregman played for three seasons as part of the LSU Tigers baseball team.
“I also went to LSU and I’m a huge LSU fan, so there’s that too,” she added.
In the comments, others revealed the athletes who inspired their children’s names, with one writing: “My son’s name is Turner. After Ted Turner and Turner Field.”
“We also named our son after an athlete! His name is Kesler after Ryan Kesler,” added another.
“That’s great. A couple I go to church with named their son Beckham after David Beckham, the former soccer player,” wrote a third.
“You named him after Alex Bregman very cool,” wrote another.
While another commented: “Yes Girl!!! Love me some Bregman!”
Others wondered how Katie’s husband would react to her video of her jokingly drooling over the Sportsman inspiration for their son’s name.
But she replied: “He knows I’m just being silly but hey he settled on the name.”
