Baby Name Story – Jorge

Imagine having to give birth in a tree:

A woman in Mozambique has given birth in a tree which she and her husband climbed to escape a flood. They named the baby boy Jorge, the name of the boatman who rescued the family 48 hours later.

I think I would have chosen the name Jorge as well in that situation. Wow.
