Update – I’ve recently found another. In September of 2007, a baby girl named Georgian Lima Russell was born to Steve and Gilliane Russell. Her first name was inspired by Georgian Bay, which is part of Lake Huron. Georgian’s mother was born and raised near the Bay, and her parents were married there. Georgian’s middle name comes from the capital of Peru. (Source: ParentCentral.ca)
