Expecting parents, the McLaughlins asked the Internet to help name their newborn daughter. Although they had the exclusive right to crosscheck and rule out the name that came out tops, they didn’t.
The expecting father, Stephen, said they wouldn’t be cool with names like WackyTaco692, but anything sane was going to pass.
He wrote on his website: ‘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.
‘You can vote once for as many names as you want. Don’t forget to checkout all of the first , middle or even both names for more options.
‘Inappropriate submissions may be removed.
‘So far I have only had to moderate several STIs and a couple of sexual positions… I would prefer not to have to remove anything from the list.’
Luckily for them, internet users did an awesome job of picking a beautiful name for the little girl who came into the world on April 7th at 3:42am.
And she was officially named… Amelia Savannah Joy McLaughlin!
Awww… aren’t those names beautiful? This goes to show that one can use the internet for meaningful stuff.
Congratulations to the parents!
The McLaughlins are actually not the first to do this. In 2008, Jason Morrison and his wife Ann turned to the internet for help in naming their baby
