It’s been a while since I posted about babies born on airplanes (and named after that fact!). So here are
two three at once:
- Barbara Lufthansa – In July of 1965, a baby girl born on a Lufthansa flight from Germany to New York was named Barbara Lufthansa, middle name in honor of the airline.
- Shona Kirsty Yves (S.K.Y.) – In 1991, a baby girl born on a British Airways flight from Ghana to London was named Shona Kirsty Yves, the initials of her three given names spelling out the word “sky.”
- Saw Jet Star – In April of 2016, a baby boy born on a Jetstar Asia flight from Singapore to Myanmar was named Saw Jet Star, “Jet Star” in honor of the airline.
And here are some of the earlier airplane babies:
- Guynemer (1922)
- Airlene (1929)
- Lindbergh (1931)
- Aaxico (1947)
- Josephine (1955)
- Connie #1 (1956)
- Wafa (1986)
- James Good Hope Sky (1986)
- Connie #2 (1996)
- Daniella (2007)
- Qatarina (2007)
- AirAsia (2009)
- Tami (2010)
- Francis (2011)
- Ek (2012)
