A Special Name For A Special Baby

KFC have given a big amount of money to a family who named their newborn daughter after the chain’s founder Colonel Sanders.

The newborn girl’s college fund is now $11,000 larger after her parents deliberately named Harland Rose after Colonel Harland Sanders in a baby naming competition.

The idea of the whole naming competition was to give the old name a boost among youngsters.

KFC US wrote on social media: “I am 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 Harland’s, little Harland Rose.”

The little baby Harland was born on September 9th at 8 lbs 1 oz on what would have been the Colonel’s 128th birthday. Harland was given $11,000 towards her education as a nod to the 11 different herbs and spices KFC fry their chicken in.

The company announced the competition back in August, stipulating that the first family to name their baby Harland on September 9th would receive the huge sum of money.

It is fair to say that the news have split social media. One user said: “Poor kid. She was named after a fried chicken joint.” However, one user hit back at this claim, saying: “She was not named after a fried chicken joint; she was named after one of the greatest entrepreneurs of all time. I would consider it an honor.”
