UK Baby Named After a Pub
|24 January 2013|
Two months ago, Lisa Barnaby of Ware, Hertfordshire, gave birth to her second daughter in a pub parking lot.
She and her husband Gavin were trying to get to the hospital, but heavy traffic forced them to stop at the The Bell — a pub in Benington, Hertfordshire — and call an ambulance.
The baby didn’t want to wait, though. She ended up being delivered by paramedics there in the parking lot, in the back seat of Lisa and Gavin’s Vauxhall Zafira.
That night, someone from The Bell tweeted:
Wow, what a day! A baby was born in our car park this evening! I kid you not. They are thinking of calling the beautiful baby Bella. :)

And call her Bella they did.
Mr Barnaby said naming their new baby after the pub was a good way of capturing Bella’s birth.
He said: “It will always be a reminder of that magical night.”
