What would you name your child if they were born on a plane?

The mother of a baby born mid-flight on an Alaska Airlines service has named her newborn son Sky.

Chrystal Hicks was flying to Anchorage where she was expected to give birth to her child.

However, the baby had other ideas and came mid-flight.

Sky Airon Hicks was born at 1am (local time), just one hour into the flight from Glennallen.

Chrystal was 35 weeks pregnant at the time.
