Blog: Chris Brook-CarterDasani! Sit Down!

Chris Brook-Carter | 5 October 2005

If you could name your first born after a drinks brand, what would it be? Stella’s a little obvious, perhaps. Foster’s? Not the best christian name, I feel. Maybe Gordon’s? Like it. But what about Edradour? Well, you wouldn’t be the first.

A Swedish couple have won a court battle to name their daughter after the Scotch whisky. Authorities had challenged the move, claiming that the name was too closely associated with an alcoholic drink brand. But Magnus and Maris Eklof argued that they had fallen in love with the area around Edradour on a recent visit to Scotland.

I always thought Bundaburg would sound pretty good for a girl, and Absolut Brook-Carter sounds like a boy with a future to me. Sadly, the missus has used her veto on these ones. My colleague Olly Wehring apparently has first dibs on Knob Creek.
