A Michigan couple had a little bit of fun naming their 14th son.
Kateri and Jay Schwandt welcomed the birth of their son on Wednesday. Jay Schwandt says they’ve decided to name him Finley Sheboygan Schwandt.
The name doesn’t appear to have any ties with the Wisconsin city. Jay Schwandt says it’s inspired by a tale his father-in-law told them about a Native American chief who was the father of many boys. The chief believed his last child would be a girl. When the baby was a boy, the chief named him Sheboygan for ‘she is a boy again.’

Kateri and Jay Schwandt grew their already full house of boys by one on Wednesday
The healthy baby boy weighed in at a healthy 8 pounds, 4 ounces.
Jay Schwandt was thrilled that mom and baby had a safe delivery. The baby’s name has yet to be announced.
Kateri Schwandt has said she’s used to large families, as she is one of 14 children herself.

With their last few children, the couple also decided against learning the baby’s sex before the birth.
The couple said previously they hoped they would deliver a girl this time around – but were excited to add another boy to the family.
‘I would love to have a girl, but I just don’t think it’s in the cards,’ Jay told NBC 4 News earlier this year.

The pair said they are done having children – but mom Kateri said 13 would be their last
It looks like the pair might not have a chance of having a girl in the future – as they confirmed they are done having babies after the fourteenth.
‘I’m thinking that this is it. It just feels like this is going to be it, and we’re going to enjoy every second of it,’ Jay said.
Kateri however previously stated the couple would be done having children after their thirteenth.
The Schwandts live in Rockford, north of Grand Rapids, and their eldest son is in his 20s.
