Couple Names Child After Car In Which She is Born
Being born or conceived in the back of a car is one of those cliches that still manages to romanticize our history with the automobile. For one couple, the car was so important to that moment, that they named their child after said car. Corin Stokes was in labor, being driven to the hospital, when she gave birth to her daughter. The couple eventually made it to Addensbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, UK, but the hard part was already over. To commemorate the event, Corin named her daughter Lyla May Zafira Stokes, after the Vauxhall Zafira they took to the hospital.

It was a bit of a shock for him when I leaned forward holding a baby."

The Vauxhaull Zafira is a multi-purpose vehicle, or MPV, built for Europe. The MPV is essentially a small minivan, which is perfect for the Stokes’ and their newly growing family! (Just for strange reference, there is a Vauxhall model named “Adam,” which would have been helpful if the child was born a boy.)
Lyla May Zafira Stokes was lucky to have been born in a vehicle with a decent name. Imagine how unfortunate it would have been if Corin had given birth in the back of a Taurus, Outback or Volt? On the other hand, there are some car names that would be perfect for a Hollywood couple– Mustang, Tahoe, Yukon, Renegade would all fit the bill!
