When Jack Daniels Leathers was born 31 years ago, his parents named him after the whiskey in order to annoy their parents. Jack has always been proud of his name, and when he and Lydia went on their first date, they agreed it could be a tradition worth continuing (the names, not the annoying). The Louisiana couple got married, and on November 14, Lydia gave birth to their first child. They named him Jim Beam Leathers, after the bourbon. But that’s not the only whiskey name connection for the Leathers.
When they got married, Judge Johnny Walker of Houma officiated the ceremony.
“When Judge Johnny Walker realized that he was marrying Lydia to Jack Daniels, he turned red. We wanted to get in touch with Judge Walker to notify him that Jack Daniels had a son named Jim Beam,” he said.
Jack and Lydia have already picked out more names. If they have a second boy, he will be named Evan Williams, or Sherry if they ever have a daughter. -via Buzzfeed
