Alex Elizabeth Beeman should have been born in Louisiana.
Hurricane Katrina forced a change in plans for Jennifer and Doc Beeman, and Alex was born Thursday at Penrose Community Hospital.
The storm didn't change the baby's chosen name. Katrina wasn't even considered.
Doc Beeman, a baseball coach at Loyola University in New Orleans, said the couple joked about it but never seriously considered it.
The popularity of the name Katrina is likely to take a beating in the wake of the deadly storm.
Last year, it was the 281st most-popular girl's name in the nation. The Social Security Administration said that's a drop from 1980, when it ranked 90th.
Hurricane Rita likely will do little for a name that last made the Social Security's data list in 2002, when it ranked 926th.
