Baby Name Story – Baby Named after Teletubby

In 1997, Teletubbies debuted in the UK. That same year, Jagdish and Kamlesh Sohpal of Birmingham, England were expecting their second daughter.

They asked their two-year-old Geeta what she’d like to name her baby sister. She replied Laa-Laa, after her favorite Teletubby–the yellow one with the curly antenna.

Apparently they liked Geeta’s suggestion. When the baby arrived in October, she was named Laa-Laa.

And what happened to the namesake of the yellow Teletubby soon after she was born? She developed jaundice. Isn’t it ironic, as Alanis Morissette might say.
