Baby girl born on day of total solar eclipse

Baby girl named Eclipse born in SC on day of total solar eclipse

On Monday, as people across the USA looked up at the sky to witness the rare event of total solar eclipse, expectant mum Freedom Eubanks felt sharp contractions.

The Eubanks explained they don't believe the eclipse theme will end on August 21.

She added: 'We're probably going to call her Clipsey'.

Greenville Memorial Hospital announced her arrival on Facebook.

There is now a baby girl in South Carolina, US, who is named "Eclipse". She originally planned to name the girl Violet, ABC News reported.

Eclipse weighed six pounds and three ounces when she was delivered and will officially go by the name Eclipse Alizabeth Eubanks, but her parents have some ideas for nicknames already.

This little boy - given the down-to-earth name of Michael - got to wear one. The healthy baby entered the world weighing 6 pounds, 3 ounces and measuring 19 inches in length.

Ten other babies were born in Greenville Memorial Hospital, and each was given a sweet solar eclipse onesie to commemorate the special day. Instead, she was named Charlotte Roel Easterly.
