Jermichael Finley’s name – theory


There were many more interesting names in the 2008 Draft. But I thought I might share my theory on how Finley was named Jermichael. (And I should add, a scenario I’m not unfamiliar with…)

Setting – hospital in Texas, March 26, 1987:

Mother talking to father moments after mother delivers. “What should we call him. We’re so indecisive. We’ve narrowed it down to two, I love Jeremy and and you love Michael. We have to decide. I also am not sure if I should have the lasagna or the chop suey”.

Mom: “Let’s go with Jeremy”.

Father, “No, should be Michael.”

Mom: “Jeremy”

Father: “Michael”.

Nurse: “um, we need a name”.

Mom: “Fine, how about Micheremy?”

Father, “No, but Jermichael would work”.


Jokes aside – I’m excited to welcome Jermichael to the Packers. Exciting player.

    Reminds me of the old Reese’s® peanut butter cup commercials……something to do w/ the one person liking chocolate and the other liking peanut butter and then they argue b/c they get them mixed together.
    So, in reality, the commercial and Jermichael’s name don’t really have anything in common. I’ll be quiet now.
