Football fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts after former Newcastle striker Andy Carroll named his new born son ‘Wolf Nine’.
Now while, each is entitled to name their children whatever they choose, it must be said, ‘Wolf Nine’ is an, interesting, choice.
One can only assume the name is made of his favourite animal, his favourite (or shirt number) and his surname/his favourite player, which is presumably himself. (if that’s the case my son’s name would be Red Panda Eleven Merino).
‘Wolf Nine Carroll You Have Stole Our Hearts 15-11-17 #BabyBoy #Wolfie #MyLittleChubbyCub’.’ read an Instagram post from Carroll’s partner and former TOWIE star Billi Mucklow after the birth of their second child.
The boy is the pairs second child together, with their other son Arlo being born almost two years ago.
I for one, am not one to talk, I too have a rather unique name, however I was fortunate enough that neither of my parents were not professional sports stars who could somehow squeeze their favourite number onto my birth certificate.
Football fans too seem to think the name is rather unconventional …

Some parents should have naming rights of their children revoked. Andy Carroll is one of those. Wolf Nine Carroll? Poor bugger
