Parents Give Baby Born On Day Of Eclipse A Beautifully Fitting Name

Baby Eclipse born at Greenville Memorial

A SC mother has named her baby girl Eclipse after giving birth just hours before the once-in-a-lifetime solar event.

A baby born at Greenville Memorial Hospital to parents Freedom and Michael Eubanks was named Eclipse Alizebeth in honor of the special day. The baby girl was not due until September 3. The new earthling weighed in at 6 pounds, 3 ounces, measured 19 inches long and sported a full head of hair.

Tara White went into labor at 9 a.m. and her baby girl was born at Sacred Hospital at 1:36 p.m. at the exact moment of the height of the eclipse in Pensacola, Florida.

Eclipse's mother and father, Michael, had originally planned to name their child Violet.

"I kind of felt like it was meant to happen, to have her on this day", Freedom Eubanks told ABC News.

Eclipse Alizabeth Eubanks was born at Greenville Memorial Hospital.

She added: 'We're probably going to call her Clipsey'.

However, because this was the first coast-to-coast total solar eclipse in almost a century, they figured the name should be just as rare and meaningful.
