Following a broken collar bone during birth, one couple decided to call their baby son Aaron Rodger, after Packers QB Aaron Rodgers suffered the same injury just a few weeks ago.

His full name is Aaron Rodger Dryer, and was born to two Packer loving parents. From the Green Bay Press Gazette,

Baby Aaron was born at 12:20 p.m. Sunday at St. Mary’s Hospital Medical Center in Green Bay. He was a couple of weeks early, and his parents had not really settled on a name yet.

But when the nurses discovered the broken left collarbone — on the same side as the quarterback’s injury — the parents did not need long to choose a name. Kyle was the first to suggest it.

“I said, ‘That’s not a bad name,’” recalled the baby’s mother, Kristal Tyczkowski. “That’s when we knew.”

They dropped the “s” from Rodgers because they thought Rodger sounded better as a middle name.

Choosing a name for the baby boy was thought to be a little easier for the parents. They weren’t planning on picking a name of a player on the Packers.

They actually were considering names from the Harry Potter book series, of which they are both big fans.
