Baby name story: Yardley

Baltimore couple Colleen and Tony Serra are obsessed with baseball.

They’ve attended every Orioles home opener since 2010. They got engaged at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. And they held their wedding reception at the Camden Club, located inside the Baltimore & Ohio railroad warehouse at Camden Yards.

Their first child, a son, was named Camden.

And their second child, a daughter born this past June, was named Yardley Ruth — Yardley for Camden Yards, and Ruth for Baltimore-born Babe Ruth.

(If the baby had been a boy, he would have been named Cole after the University of Maryland’s Cole Field House.)
