WBZ's Shari Small found that not many were enticed by the idea, some even thinking it was a step too far for them.

"That's a little harsh to name a parasite after your ex," one resident said.

"How angry are you at your ex that you ready to name a parasite after them? It's like 'all right we're going to name this after a politician,' I would be all in for that— all day," Mike from Waltham said.
