Baby born in car named after vehicle

POOLE, England, Nov. 19 (UPI) -- A British couple said they decided to give their baby the same name as the unusual place of her birth -- Kia.

Tony Richardson, 24, and Samantha Smyth, 23, said they named baby Kia after the seven-seat Kia Carens that served as the birthing room when they arrived at a Poole, England, hospital moments too late, the Bournemouth Daily Echo reported Thursday.


The Parkside, England, couple said they had originally planned to name their baby "Tilly," but changed their minds after the unusual birth.

"We have decided she doesn't look like a Tilley and settled on Kia," Richardson said.

"I don't think we would have used Volkswagen or Citroen," Smyth said.
