Couple go viral after naming their baby suitably after the solar eclipse

A couple from the States have gone viral for their choice in baby name, which they chose to the recent and rare solar eclipse.

In a Facebook post, the couple announced they had suitably named their child Eclipse and confessed it was a last minute decision to change the name. Originally, they had planned to call her Violet, but a last minute idea saw a change of plan.

“I kind of felt like it was meant to happen, to have her on this day,” the mum told ABC News.

“I think it was just meant to be, her name... We’re probably going to call her Clipsey.”

The hospital celebrated each birth on the day of the eclipse with a special 'total solar eclipse' onesie for each baby born.
