This baby’s name is inspired by Colonel Sanders and it cost KFC $11,000

In August KFC offered $US11,000 to a set of parents who named their new baby after the iconic face of the takeaway giant, Colonel Sanders.

If the parents in favour legally named their baby (which had to be born on September 9, the same as Sanders) Harland, which is the first name of the big man, they would receive the money.

There has now been a winner and a baby out there is now called Harland and it’s a…

Harland could work for a boy too, but we actually like the name for a girl a lot!

KFC announced the winner on their twitter and wrote, “I’m as pleased as pumpkin punch to announce the winner of our Baby Harland Naming Contest and the Harland who will be ushering in an all-new generation of Harlands, little Harland Rose.”

With the competition now over, there must be many Harlands out there! Luckily it’s a cute name!

A similar name, Harlan made the list of our rare baby names that are now becoming popular. Harlan means ‘hare land’ or ‘meadow of hares’ in Old English.
