A man named after whiskey has named his son for bourbon.

Thirty-one-year-old Jack Daniels Leathers of Gray 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 14 November, turning grandparental pique into tradition. Jack Daniels Leathers says his parents named him to upset their own parents.

He says that if they have another baby, a boy would be Evan Williams, after the bourbon, and a girl would be named Sherry.

The alcoholic names extended to the Terrebonne Parish judge who officiated at their wedding: Judge Johnny Walker.
