What do Sir Isaac Newton, Humphrey Bogart, and Jesus have in common? They were all allegedly born on Christmas Day. Add to that list my niece Elisabeth (middle name "Noëlle") and Carol Herzog of Stanton, Michigan.
Herzog’s father was able to come two weeks later to take his wife and daughter home. When he went to write the name “Eleanor” on the birth certificate, he found that his wife had decided to name their Christmas present Carol instead.It could be worse. I ran across a boy born May 8, 1896, whose parents named him Arbor Day Jackson.
“He said I “caroled” all night long as a baby,” Herzog said. [Link]
