I’ve posted about baby names inspired by a street, a freeway and a highway exit, but this is the first rest area-inspired baby name I’ve seen:
On 8 April 2009, Kate Flello of Gloucestershire, England, went into labor a month early. Her partner Brian Sterry began driving her to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital via A48, but they never made it. The baby boy was born in the Westbury-on-Severn lay-by (rest area).
What was he named? Toby Westbury. According to Kate, “We wanted to call him something appropriate and Toby Westbury is better than Toby Astra.”
