PHOENIX - Mr. and Mrs. Kirby Brockerbox had no idea the controversy they would stir up after their twins boys were born.
The new-born twins were given the names iPad and iPod. Justine Brockerbox said that she wanted to name her twin boys Timothy and Thomas but she said she was overruled by her extremely domineering husband.
Kirby Brockerbox is a sales representative with The Copernicus Computer Consulting Firm, which is based in Phoenix.
He said that he did not like the names Timothy and Thomas because they were the names of two of his wife's ex-boyfriends.
Mrs. Brockerbox said that neither Thomas nor Timothy had gotten past third base.
Her husband commented that he did not believe his wife.
The couple recently received a call from a hospital director asking that they would like for them to change the names of their two boys.
Mr. Brockerbox asked why. And he was told that they and the hospital have become the laughing stocks of the city of Phoenix as well as the state of Arizona as well.
Mrs. Brockerbox said that she has already gotten used to the names iPad and iPod and that the babies seem to respond to their new electronic names.
SIDENOTE: According to The Cucamonga Chit Chat Chronicle the hospital has hired the legal services of noted Los Angeles attorney Ginger Allred and they plan to force the Brockerbox's to change the names of their twins.
