Mike and Crystal Weber of Waukesha, Wisconsin — the birthplace of pioneering guitarist Les Paul — named their newborn son Gibson after the guitar brand.
Mike is a guitar enthusiast, and the name was picked out well in advance:
Mike Weber told the Waukesha Freeman newspaper, “I was talking to some co-workers about baby names before we even started trying for a baby and someone suggested Gibson — I loved it.”
Mike even wore his Gibson Les Paul shirt for the delivery on February 8.
“Growing up in Waukesha, you always hear about Les Paul, and this is such a cool way to honor him,” he said.
