This Man Named Jack Daniels Named His New Son Jim Beam

This story was just too good that we had to share with you all, and nope, we’re not making it up!

A man whose name is Jack Daniels Leathers decided to pass on the whiskey-name tradition to his newborn son and gave him the name of Jim Beam Leathers.

“My parents decided they wanted to name their son something to make their parents mad,” Jack told his local paper, Houma Today. “And, at the time, my dad was drinking Jack, which he enjoyed. My mom said, ‘Why not?’”

“On our first date, we were talking about baby names. We thought Jim Beam would be a good idea,” he added.

What does Jack‘s wife Lydia think of all this? ““I’ve always tried to do stuff out of the ordinary, to do things differently than other people,” she said. “It’s hard to find a name that you like that nobody you know has. It was all Jack‘s idea. I just went along with it.”

Want to know what their next children will be named? “If we have another child, our second born will be Evan Williams, after the bourbon. If it’s a girl, she will be Sherry, like the cooking sherry,” Jack said.

    It may have been a hick name, although I’ve met some people with strange names for other reasons. Nicknames tend to be worse, this lucky little fellah might get Jimbo?
