2 Typhoon-inspired baby names

So far I’ve heard of two babies born in the Philippines in the aftermath of typhoon Haiyan (a.k.a. typhoon Yolanda) who were given typhoon-related names:

  • Bea Joy, daughter of Emily Ortega Sagalis, was born in the Tacloban airport. She was named Bea in honor of her grandmother Beatriz, who died in the storm.
  • Israel, son of Emylous and Audrin Antigua, was born in an Israeli field hospital in Bogo City. His mother chose the name Israel “to show her gratitude to the Israeli team composed of doctors, surgeons, nurses and rescue personnel.”
