Baby born on Key West, named Key West

Key West house

In July of 1948, Harry and Allene Jennings of Key West, Florida — the southernmost city in the contiguous U.S. — welcomed a baby boy.

What did they name him?

Key West Jennings.

My source article noted that “he will never have any trouble remembering his birthplace.”

P.S. One famous resident of Key West during the 1930s was author Ernest Hemingway (the father of John Hadley Nicanor and the grandfather of Margaux and Mariel).
