Baby name story: Nash

The first baby born in central Iowa (including Des Moines) in 2014 was Nash David Eddie, son of Lance and Christine Eddie.

The name “Nash” was chosen in honor of Nashville, Tennessee. It’s where Lance and Christine went on their first road trip together.

When the president/CEO of the Nashville Convention and Visitors Corp. learned about baby Nash, he sent the Eddie family a bunch of “Nashville-themed gifts, including a CD with music from the TV show “Nashville,” a guitar-shaped chocolate bar, the “Lisa Loeb’s Silly Singalong” children’s book and a four-foot-tall stuffed Gnash — the Nashville Predators hockey team mascot.”

The family will also get free passes to local attractions the next time they visit Nashville.

(Some of the other locational baby names I’ve blogged about over the years: Brighton, Endellion, Julian, Sonora, Kennedy, Aquinnah, Georgian, Washington, Boston, Newark, Florence, Cape Cod, Montana, Helsinki.)

Baby born on Cape Cod, named Cape Cod

Cape Cod, Massachusetts

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Dionne White of New Orleans, Louisiana, was evacuated to Camp Edwards in Falmouth, Massachusetts (which is located on Cape Cod).

One month later, on September 27, 2005, she gave birth to a baby boy — the first baby born to an evacuee staying at Camp Edwards.

In honor of her new home, she decided to named her son Cape Cod Bannister — first name Cape, middle name Cod. She’ll call him by his initials, C. C. (“Cee Cee”).
