Uwe Schiek and Nalia Barkman of rural Lasqueti Island had been planning to travel to Vancouver before the birth of their son. But, when the baby decided to show up over a week early, that plan fell through.
Ari Edan Shaw Schiek ended up being born several days ago aboard Canadian Coast Guard vessel Cape Edensaw. His first name had been selected ahead of time, and Edan Shaw “honours the coast guard,” according to Nalia.
The lifeboat’s name comes from Cape Edensaw in Virago Sound. Uwe claims Cape Edensaw was named after Haida chief Charles Edenshaw (1839-1920), but it’s more likely to have been named after his uncle, chief Albert Edward Edenshaw (ca.1810-1894). The surname Edenshaw is derived from a Tlingit word meaning “wasting away,” in reference to ice melting from a glacier.

If you’re anything like me, you’re probably now wondering: So how can I name a cultivar of my very own?
Well, just grab your credit card and get in touch with a company that hybridizes roses. Some charge as little as several thousand dollars; others ask for as much as $75,000 to name a rose.
If you don’t have that kind of money lying around, and you happen to live in British Columbia, you may be able to name a rose for free. Just submit a name to the GardenWise Name a Rose contest before the end of August.
