Nothing says Christmas quite like receiving an adorable new puppy as a gift. And if you’re a passionate Ohio State football fan, why not give your new best friend a name that reps your beloved Buckeyes?

Elliott seems to approve of the name, as he retweeted the photos.

UPDATE:

Ohio State fans are naming their kids after the Buckeyes' star tailback, too.

It's safe to say that Elliott has left quite the legacy in Columbus.
