No This Mom Did Not Name Her Baby Korn

A Seattle mother named Kells Tate has gone viral after sharing that her newborn daughter was legally given the name ​‘Korn’ instead of ​‘Kora’ due to a hospital error. ​

“The hospital messed up my baby’s name and we just got the birth certificate and it’s Korn my baby’s name is legally Korn” she tweeted alongside a photo of the mistake – a post that at the time of writing now has gotten over 14,000 retweets and 138,000 likes. Detailing the mistake – which should thankfully be corrected ASAP and with relative ease as these typos do often happen – Kells followed up by explaining that, ​“1. The name is supposed to be Kora. 2. Yes this should be able to be easily fixed if we are fast! 3. There is a chance they may have had me double check this but to be fair I was down a lot of blood at the time.” While the band are yet to respond, Tate adds that she is ​“healing well” – and is clearly taking this all in very good humor.
