NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Here’s one baby name that probably won’t make it on this year’s most popular list: Jim Beam.

But for one Louisiana family, baby Jim Beam will fit in quite well. His father, Jack Daniels Leathers, 31, is also named after a stiff drink.

It’s somewhat of a tradition for the family, he told the Houma Courier in Houma, Louisiana, earlier this week.

The day Leathers was born, his father happened to be drinking a glass of the well-known whiskey and suggested the name, Leathers told CNNMoney. His mother agreed, after calling a local store to double check the correct spelling. (His birth certificate actually reads: Jack Daniel’s Leathers.)

And when Jack’s own son was born on November 14th, he wanted to keep booze in the family name.

“It builds character to be a little different,” he said.

Fortunately his wife, Lydia Leathers, 23, thought it was a good idea. In fact, the couple discussed naming a son Jim Beam on their very first date.

And if more children come along, they already have some names on tap. Evan Williams, after the bourbon, for a boy, and Sherry if it’s a girl.
