GRAY, La. — A man named after whiskey has named his son for bourbon.
Jack Daniels Leathers, 31, of Gray, Louisiana, says he and his 23-year-old wife, Lydia Leathers, chose the name well before their marriage.
He tells The Courier they talked about baby names on their first date, and thought Jim Beam would be a good idea.
Jim Beam Leathers was born Nov. 14, turning grandparental pique into tradition. Jack Daniels Leathers says his parents named him to upset their parents.
