An American man called Jack Daniels, after the famous whiskey, has named his son Jim Beam.

32-year-old Jack Daniels Leathers from Louisiana, America told Houma Today that his own name came from the famous whiskey as a way to annoy his grandparents. Brilliant.

He said:

My parents decided they wanted to name their son something to make their parents mad.

At the time, my dad was drinking Jack, which he enjoyed. My mom said: ‘Why not’.

Now Leathers’ 23-year old wife Lydia doesn’t mind doing the same thing.


Apparently little Jim is only the beginning, the couple plan to have more children who they will also name after famous spirits.

Apparently their next child will be Evan Williams if it’s a boy or Sherry if it’s a girl.
