A hospital MESSED UP a newborns birth certificate so there legal name IS...

Earlier this month, a woman named Kells in Seattle had a baby girl. And on Friday, she got the baby's birth certificate . . . but the hospital messed it up.

She wanted to name her baby "Kora" . . . but the hospital wrote down KORN. With a K. Yep, like the band. So her baby's legal name is now Korn.

Kells tweeted a picture of the mistake and now it's going viral. She says she's working on getting the name changed.
