Parents Let Redditors Choose Baby's Name, and It's Actually Not Bad

Illustration for article titled Parents Let Redditors Choose Babys Name, and Its Actually Not Bad

Naming a baby is a crazy amount of pressure. A name is never just a name—it has to be beautiful and strong and fitting. And you have one chance to get it right—well without having to do more legal paperwork. So it's almost understandable that one couple decided to take some of the pressure off and crowdsource a name for their unborn baby girl—from Reddit.

Of course, Stephen (the father-to-be) wasn't exactly going to put all his eggs in the Reddit basket, as he stated on Namemydaughter.com:

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.

As expected, there were some ridiculous and pop culture-heavy suggestions like "Cthulu All-Spark," "Chalupa Batman," and "Slagathor" (just no). But given the amount of times the name Amelia was tossed around (mostly as an homage to Doctor Who) it looks like the internet came through for the couple—they recently announced the arrival of Amelia Savannah Joy McLaughlin, born on April 7.

Well done, heavily curated internet!

Some insane names I would love to use as middle names for children, but have been vetoed by Monsieur…

Theon

Sassafras

Senator (Actually, this one would be a first name, but the child would go by the second name, so their name would be, like "Senator William Lastname." Dream? That child becomes president. President Senator William Lastname.)
