The reasoning behind the "monstrous" name is anyone's guess, since the couple are remaining private about their decision – they declined an interview on the name change after it started getting some attention.
"Thank you, but despite our crazy/flashy new middle names, my husband and I are pretty private," the wife, Melanie Convery (or Melanie Seamonster Convery), Tweeted in response to MassLive.
Another Tweet posted by Convery humorously points out that she and her husband, Neal Seamonster Coughlin, were not expecting people to notice their legal petition, which was published in The Holyoke Sun on Friday.
I thought posting our legal name change in the Holyoke Sun might mean no one would read it. Turns out grandmas like reading legal notices.— Melanie (@SeamonsterM) July 21, 2014
