Pa. baby named for nearby college after car birth
ERIE, Pa. (AP) - January 31, 2011 (WPVI) -- An Erie-area couple has named their baby after the college they stopped in front of when the woman gave birth in their car on the way to the hospital.
Nathan and Kathy Brewer, of Harborcreek Township, say they considered naming their son Cam, because he was born in a Toyota Camry, or Otto, a play on the word "auto." Instead, they settled on Asher Behrend Brewer - Asher being a biblical name and Behrend for the Behrend College, a satellite campus in the Penn State system also known as Penn State Behrend.
The Brewers were driving to St. Vincent Health Center in Erie when the boy arrived unexpectedly at 12:20 a.m. Dec. 31.
Brewer tells the Erie Times-News he "didn't do much" to assist his wife who in the front passenger seat when she gave birth to their son, saying, "Basically, I just caught him."
