Wow, the last 2 comments regarding Calvin are way the f*ck off.

Calvin is a riotous child with a playful imagination that causes him to believe his stuffed tiger doll is a living, breathing, tiger friend named Hobbes, with whom he gets into zany adventures involving big cardboard boxes, elaborate snow sculpting, and terrorizing little girls.

OK, Watson, but I really don't see Alvin recreating his image. He's the stud of the group, why would he diminish himself by changing? It isn't as if he's the nerdy Simon, struggling to drop his Chipspunk in some Chipcunt.

There are only 2 fathomable explanations for Alvin changing his name to Calvin and recreating his image.
1) The original Alvin has died from drug overdose. This would not be surprising. Who could naturally attain such a high pitched squeak? He was probably on whip-its, passed out, and eventually died. In the revolving door of Alvins who have since portrayed him, the most recent one (who played the character "Alvin" in the movie trilogy ending Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked) decided that he'd proved his worth and should be allowed to be more himself, thereby leading Alvin to change his moniker to Calvin, along with the personality changes that would allow the newest chipmunk to show his true colors.
2) Alvin, whose religion we can only assume, changed his beliefs to that of Calvinism (more info at Wikipedia.org), and in fully accepting this change in his heart, adopted the name of his religions founder, John Calvin.

If you're gonna come from a different angle, could you at least give a slight explanation? The connection from youtube problems to netflix is obvious (both are video providers of some form), it is obvious from youtube problems to linux (better understanding of a computer's inner workings would allow the user to assess the problem on his/her own), it is obvious from linux to Linus (changing one letter), and from Linus to Calvin (two central characters in famous comic strips). Now please, if we're gonna get crazy, we need to do it in a reasonable manner. The human body doesn't function when the synapses don't fire in order, much like this jovial conversation can't function when logical connections aren't made.

And what the f*ck is a Kelvin?

More and more I like this whitestanz ('Me and the Colonel' reference) :P

But hey, it's not totally crazy. 2 popular fictional characters with similar names (drop one letter).

By the way, I take it you know that Calvin is named so in recognition of John Calvin, the philosopher (whom you mentioned).

Kelvin.... well now, that's a hot topic.

Your point? His name is still Alvin. Weight changes are a normal part of the aging process, and fashion changes through the times.
