Jack Daniels Leathers, 32, said his parents named him after the famed American whiskey to annoy his grandparents.
"My parents decided they wanted to name their son something to make their parents mad," he told the Courier. "And, at the time, my dad was drinking Jack, which he enjoyed. My mom said, 'Why not?'"
He said his wife, 23-year-old Lydia Leathers, said they talked about baby's names on their first date, and agreed at the time Jim Beam would be a perfect baby name.
