Popular opinion on Olive Garden is, shall we say, divided: On one side are those who think the restaurant overpriced and faux-Italian; on the other are those who name their daughters in honor of the casual-dining chain. For instance, Justin and Jordan Garton of Arkansas, who will be naming their first child Olivia Garton in homage to the purveyor of bread sticks.
The couple has a pretty endearing relationship with the restaurant. Justin, 28, and Jordan, 26, grew up going to Olive Garden, and in 2015, not long after they were married, the couple nabbed a coveted Never Ending Pasta Pass and ate at the Italian chain for nearly seven weeks straight. The pass is $100 and blesses the cardholder with unlimited bowls of pasta, salad, soup, and breadsticks.
