Couple Names Daughter 'Eclipse' After Being Born During Celestial Event

Monday's total solar eclipse wasn't expected to hit parts of SC until the afternoon, but an Eclipse came early for a Greenville couple. I've had some rude comments about her name and I've had some very sweet ones but it's a name - all that matters is that my daughter is healthy and she is here.

FOX Carolina reported a baby born at Greenville Memorial Hospital to parents Freedom and Michael Eubanks was named Eclipse Alizebeth Eubanks in honor of the special day.

"And I was like, I actually like that", Freedom added. The couple originally picked the name Violent before Freedom went into labor around midnight.

Other babies [VIDEO] born during or close to the total eclipse include Lena Ray who was the first of seven babies born on Monday at Shawnee Mission Medical Center in Merriam, Kansas.
