HOLYOKE, Mass. —

Sea monsters may exist only in the imagination, but a Massachusetts couple wants to make them part of their names.

The Republican newspaper of Springfield reports (http://bit.ly/1kkYaao ) that the couple, Melanie Ann Convery and Neal James Coughlin of Holyoke, are petitioning Massachusetts to allow them to make both of their middle names "Seamonster."

The couple has made the request in a legal notice published in a local newspaper as required by state law. A hearing on the request is scheduled for Wednesday in Hampden Probate and Family Court.

The couple gave no indication why they wanted the legendary creatures to be included in their names.
