Baby name story: Adrian

Six years ago, Dan Biddle lost both of his legs and one eye in the 7/7 London bombings.

He would have bled to death on the subway tracks if not for ex-soldier Adrian Heili, who stayed behind and put tourniquets what remained of Dan’s legs.

Dan then “spent six weeks in a coma and a year in hospital.”

A little over a month ago, Dan and his wife Lisa welcomed their second child, a baby boy. What did they name him? Nathan Adrian, in honor of the man who saved Dan’s life.

Dan said:

I phoned Adrian soon after the birth and said something like, ‘I hope you don’t mind but I’ve named him after you’. It choked him up a bit.

Their eldest child is 2-year-old Caitlyn.
