Liverpool supporter Eirin Isabell Iversen has revealed a ridiculous tribute she and her husband made to the Merseyside club after naming their four-year-old daughter 'Karoline YNWA'.

The Norwegian couple decided to pay homage to the Premier League giants after choosing a crazy name for their child, dedicating their love for LFC with a fitting moniker for the newborn.

Speaking to national newspaper Dagbladet, Eirin explained how she and her partner came to the joint decision, after she was put off calling baby Karoline 'Gerrard' after the Reds inspirational skipper.

"I'm probably not as interested in football, but it was actually my suggestion to call her 'YNWA'," she explained. "He suggested 'Gerrard', before we knew if it was a boy or girl.

"It would hardly have worked so well for a girl, and I suggested 'YNWA'. The more we talked about it with the grandparents, the more it sank in, and we decided.

"Her name is Karoline YNWA, we could not really force her to cheer on Liverpool. But she is very proud of its name."

Like she said, young Karoline could not be made to pledge her allegiance to Brendan Rodgers's side, but judging by the photograph above the youngster is happy to show off her colours.

Karoline is also set to visit Anfield for the first time as a present for her fifth birthday, which will undoubtedly go down well with the young girl named after one of the world's most famous football clubs.

Liverpool are actually in action at home tonight as they welcome Chelsea for the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final clash, as Rodgers looks to get one over his old mentor Jose Mourinho in a bid to book a place at Wembley in March.

Tottenham Hotspur and Sheffield United meet in the other last four encounter, so the winner of the bout between the Reds and the Blues will seriously fancy their chances of claiming the first domestic trophy available in 2015.
