The baby boy arrived just as their Volkswagen “rounded the corner from Hamilton onto Trent,” just minutes away from Sacred Heart Medical Center.

What was he named? Daniel Trent Butler — middle name for East Trent Avenue.

One thought on “Baby Named After Spokane Intersection

  1. Trent is a cute name for a baby boy, and before its time in 1986! Trents, Masons, etc. were popular in the late 90s and mid 2000s.

    Looks like there is inspiration in Spokane, Washington after all :)
