A mother in Alaska wants her daughter to have an awesome name. Literally.

Lisa Flores has filed paperwork to legally change her daughter's middle name to Awesome, according to the Juneau Empire.

Viviana's middle name is currently Contea.

Flores told the newspaper she allowed her 11-year-old son to pick out his 2 1/2-year-old sister's name. He wanted Danger, but she vetoed that and went with Contea over his suggestion of Awesome for a middle name.

Now she wants to honor at least part of her son's wishes.

Flores said she also wants the name change as a way to thank her son, Dominic, for all that he has done to help her.
