Chile: A couple calls their child “Griezmann Mbappé”

The newborn has been talked about a lot since birth. And not just because he’s one of the first babies born in Chile in 2022 to be born on January 1. It is above all for his first name, to say the least original, since he was called Griezmann Mbappé by his parents, fervent football fans and two French internationals.

Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappé’s aura goes beyond the borders of France and Europe. If they are among the favorite players of the French, they are also the idols of many fans around the world. Especially in Chile, where a couple decided to name their son after the two 2018 tricolor world champions.

It was the Copiapo hospital, located in the Atacama region in the north of the country and where the toddler was born, that revealed this information. Griezmann Mbappé Chambi Pacaje, by his full name, who weighed 3,064 kilos and was 50 cm tall at birth, was born to Bolivian parents who had settled in Chile for four years.

For the record, it is the mother who chose to honor Griezmann and the father who opted for Mbappé. It remains to be seen whether, in a few years, the boy will follow in the footsteps of his namesakes.

This is not the first time that parents have decided to call their son this way. In November 2018, after the coronation of the Blues at the World Cup in Russia, a couple living in Corrèze had also named their son “Griezmann Mbappé”. But justice was opposed in March 2019 and the couple had finally called the boy “Dany Noé”.
