In an attempt to boost the sagging popularity of the name, Kentucky Fried Chicken offered a challenge in August: Be the first family to have a child on the Colonel's birthday (Sept. 9), and then name that baby Harland to receive $11,000 toward college tuition.
Where does the very specific winning price amount come from? It's related to the 11 herbs and spices used in the Colonel's world famous chicken recipe.
Now we know that at least one family took the bait. Harland Rose — who weighed in at 8 pounds and 1 ounce — won the prize.
For the record, her parents plan to call her "Harley."
