Initially the tax office, which in Sweden registers the names for newborns, refused the name, saying it was too closely linked to an alcoholic drink.
But the girl's parents, Magnus and Maria Ekloef, persisted, taking the case to court in their home town of Soederhamn, on the east coast of Sweden.
The Ekloefs argued that Edradour is also a beautiful town in Scotland, and said they had been charmed by the place as well as the local tipple.
"I'm interested in whisky, but this is more about the place," Magnus Ekloef told the Haelsinge-Kurir daily.

Based on Edradour generosity, (they gave the couple a case of whisky) I might call the child Ardbeg.
A good enough reason to avoid the name Loch Dhu!
I believe one of the Grants of Glenfiddich is called Glen. That must cause some confusion...
ps: I take it that the name of the child was not influenced by the number of men whose efforts are required to produce the whisky????
