Hermiston’s first baby of 2016 was Edgar Orozco II, born Sunday, Jan. 3, at 2:51 a.m. to Jaqueline Maya and Edgar Orozco at Good Shepherd Health Care System’s Family Birthing Center.
He weighed five pounds, 10 ounces and was 19 inches long. He is the couple’s first child.
For their first baby of 2016, Good Shepherd staff put together a special gift basket for the family that included toys, wipes and other useful baby items, plus mementos that included a free professional photo shoot.
Edgar didn’t make the list of top baby names in Umatilla County for 2015, although they could prove to be trend setters for the new year.
The list of baby names generated by the 443 new parents who signed a media release at St. Anthony Hospital or Good Shepherd Medical Center in 2015 showed a wide range of unique names and creative spellings. According to the list, five girls were named Brooklyn and four boys were named Henry, making those the top two baby names of Umatilla County in 2015.
