Baby’s Name Inspired by Corporate Merger

In March of 1982, shareholders approved the merger of U.S. Steel and Findlay, Ohio-based Marathon Oil. Newspapers at the time called it the “second-largest corporate takeover in history.”

Expectant parents Marilyn Chin and Ronald Yurcak were both working for a New York City investment banking firm involved in the merger. On March 24, about 2 weeks after the merger, they welcomed a baby girl named Jennifer Findlay Yurcak.

“For months, the talk was about Marathon and about Findlay, Ohio,” Ms. Chin said in a telephone interview. “The more I heard the name, the more I liked it. It has a nice ring to it.”

The couple said they would have used Findlay as a middle name regardless of the baby’s gender.
