Taking “Gerber Baby” a Little Too Seriously?

At least 54 baby boys have been named Gerber in the last two decades:

  • 1993 – 7 boys named Gerber
  • 1998 – 8 boys named Gerber
  • 2000 – 5 boys named Gerber
  • 2001 – 6 boys named Gerber
  • 2003 – 8 boys named Gerber
  • 2006 – 8 boys named Gerber
  • 2007 – 12 boys named Gerber

Some of these babies were surely named with the baby food brand in mind.

The Gerber company was founded in 1927 by Daniel and Dorothy Gerber. Their surname is German in origin and refers to tanning (leather tanning, not sun tanning!).
