  • Eclipse visible Monday — but be careful!

A baby was born Monday in SC was named after the Great American Eclipse.

A baby born at Greenville Memorial Hospital to parents Freedom and Michael Eubanks was named Eclipse Alizebeth in honor of the special day.

The Eubanks explained they don't believe the eclipse theme will end on August 21. The baby girl was not due until September 3.

But the couple changed their mind after Freedom went into labor nearly two weeks early and gave birth at Greenville Memorial Hospital at 8:04 a.m. Monday.

Eclipse's mother and father, Michael, had originally planned to name their child Violet. "We're probably going to call her Clipsey".

As it was reported just a few days ago, Google will officially unveil Android 8 .0 on the 21 August during the Solar Eclipse . Rumor mongers got a big break on Friday about the possible name for Google's upcoming Android "O" operating system.

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.

Besides Eclipse, there were 10 other babies born at the same hospital on Monday and all the babies were given eclipse-themed gifts.

In Homestead, Neb., the eclipse will be at its peak at around 2:04 p.m. However, she wasn't named Eclipse like the SC baby.
