Two soon-to-be parents have asked the Internet for help naming their daughter.

With the approval of his (probably long suffering) wife, the husband set up namemydaughter.com, where users can vote for their favorite first and middle names for the unborn baby girl.

The husband explained himself and appealed to potential voters on Reddit, because obviously:

    "I was sitting on the end of the bed after coming home from work and the idea hit me. I tend to be very forward person (this gets me in a lot of trouble lol) and I just blurted it out - ?Hunny, I am going to ask the internet what we should name our daughter!?

    She was supportive right from the start. I think at first she didn?t think I was actually going to do it. But once the domain was registered she knew it was real.

    Hell when I saw that namemydaughter.com was available I just knew that was the sign that I HAD to do it.?

Anyway, in news that should surprise no one, the crazies of Reddit are really getting into it. Though surprisingly normal name Amelia Mae is currently in first place, it?s followed by Cthulu All-Spark. Names likes Charlotte, Leslie, Renee and Meagan also top the list, but so do Ixtley, Megatron, Slagathor, Titanium, and Salad. That, ladies and gentlemen, is what happens when you specifically solicit Reddit for help in your stupid baby naming plans.

The husband established the rule that users can only vote for each name once per household per day, wisely protecting his daughter from the neckbeards who?d inevitably spend hours voting for SwordOfDestiny SuperNova until their thumbs were too sore to play Warcraft that night.

But mayhaps this loony husband isn?t fully insane. At the top of the site, he declares: ?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.?

The very lucky baby is due April 2, so if we start voting now, we can probably make Beyonc? happen. Let?s do it.

It says on the site they removed a lot of Tor based votes, and votes with no ip.

Plus, it also says that they will chose the name in the end, regardless of what the internet wants.

 

I voted for Cthulhu All-Spark and Street Lamp Le-DASH-A.

They already did when the contest was new, they voted "Adolf" to number one within minutes, the parents removed the name from the listing. After Adolf was removed they bickered about what else to upvote.

I voted.  Though It appears they are definitely using it to come up with names that aren't super common. 

 

 

 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.

 

Not a bad idea, they will get a bunch of names that sound cool, are aren't super common, and will ultimately pick the one they like the best.
