Dad-To-Be Wants The Internet To Name His Baby

Vote For Your Fave At NameMyDaughter.com

Reddit user digitalgecko recently posted a thread about his website, NameMyDaughter.coma site he started to basically crowd source baby names.

On his website, he explains:

“Hi, My name is Stephen and much to the disbelief of my wife, I have decided to let the internet name* my daughter. Yeah that is an asterisk, Unfortunately internet I know better than to trust you. We will ultimately be making the final decision, Alas my daughter shall not be named WackyTaco692. Sorry guys the wife wouldn't go for a free for all. Inappropriate submissions may be removed -- Yeah looking at you Graeme. You know what you did.”

People can vote on a list of name submissions for first and middle names, or submit their own.

At time of writing, the leading choice for the baby’s name was Cthulhu All-Spark, with a combined total of almost 160,000 votes.

Okay then . . . 

I guess it’s a good thing he put that little *disclaimer on the website.

Personally, my favourite combination of names was Doctor InTheFlesh McLaughlin. I can’t say that without laughing.

McLaughlin’s baby daughter is due on April 2ndlet’s hope he chooses a name for his little girl that will have just a tad more meaning and thought behind it than Alaska FromTheBlock.

How did you decide your baby’s name? Would you ever consider doing something like this to crowd-source a name?
