Recently, two mothers gave birth to some legends.

One mother, Sophie Carter, gave birth at Huntsville Hospital to a baby girl named June Carter. A few hours later at the same hospital, Nicole Davis gave birth to a baby boy named Johnny Cash. No pre-planning was involved and the mothers were total strangers.

Sophie Davis told Tennessee Valley Living that “[they] do love Johnny Cash, but we really just thought the name ‘June’ was beautiful.” While Nicole and her husband had a harder time thinking of the name. Nicole’s father-in-law is named Johnny. They thought they would name the boy Johnny Nashville because they love the area. Then they said, “Oh, wait a minute. Johnny Cash would be perfect and we’ll call him ‘Cash.’”

When the doctors heard wind of the coincidence, they and the mothers took the babies into the hallway and snapped the darling picture “so that they will always have this cool coincidence to follow them as they grow and they’ll always have a cool story,” they tell AL.com.
