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 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:
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.”
I wonder if the name Zafira was ever a contender. (I’ve blogged about multiple babies named after the cars they were born in — Ford, Jeep, Kia, Mondeo, Jazz, Camryn.)

On September 2, 2008, Leslie Russell had a baby girl at the University of Chicago Medical Center.
Here’s the catch: She wasn’t inside the Center. Instead, she was in the parking lot — specifically, in the front passenger seat of a Toyota Camry. (Luckily, a pediatrician who happened to be walking by assisted with the birth.)
What did she name the baby? Claire Camryn — middle name in honor of the Camry. Russell said:
If she’s upset with me later, I’ll tell her she’s lucky she wasn’t born in a Daewoo!

*The mother claims Tikibiinhs is an Ottawa name meaning “little spring.” I haven’t been able to verify this.
