We won’t know until tomorrow about the names of the first babies of 2020. Until then, here’s the story behind the name of Toronto’s first baby of 2010, Eva Violante, who arrived one second after midnight on New Year’s morning.
The parents “knew the baby was a girl and had two names picked out – Olivia and Eva.”
They chose Eva because it was the name of the doctor who delivered her, they had driven down a street in their neighbourhood with the same name, and because they thought she was going to be born on New Year’s Eve.
Neat, right? And here’s another baby whose name was chosen after a series of coincidences.
Happy New Year, everyone!
