Name that Blog Baby!

On Monday I was filling in for a day over at Sierra Godfrey's blog, on account of she's been kind of busy having a baby and all. While she was slacking away from the keyboard, I decided to blog-name her new baby boy for her, because she (like many of us) prefers not to give the real names of family members online. Some nonsense about privacy. You know how it is.

BUT, because I'm rusty at naming babies (thank the good Lord; there are perks to getting older), I figured a contest was in order. See the details HERE. Please go enter. 

I meant now.

Really. I'll wait. *drums fingers on sofa*

What? You say you don't know Sierra? Well, that doesn't matter in the slightest! She's very friendly, when she's not being evil. You'll like her.

Plus...listen, can you keep a secret? Right now she's kind of, um, hormonal (shhh!), if you get my drift. Post Dramatic Birth Syndrome, or something. So I'm thinking getting lots of blog-name suggestions for the little perpetrator of her hormone dilemma might just cheer her up. So, whadaya say?

I'll wait a little longer.

**********PAUSES**********************

You added a suggestion? Hooray! I'm sure it was pure genius. In fact, I'll bet you are going to win. Yes, YOU.

Oh, and don't forget to leave a comment here, too, telling me you entered. Or that you didn't enter, if that was your inclination, because you (wrongly) think you suck at blog-naming babies. But at least leave a good (lame) excuse here to entertain me. You know how I love it when you entertain me.

I had a name, but I felt bad adding it after all the cutesy suggestions. :)

I have never read Sierra's blog before but I can honestly say you did a great job as a guest blogger. You were all bright and cheery. Such a good look for you. Don't worry I entered. I have never met a contest I didn't like.

I'm in! Go see...

We could name it Flaunting Cactus. That's going to be my title for everything this week. I'm pretty sure it's a metaphor, I just can't figure out what for.

Now.
Right now.

You did a good job for Sierra. (no surprise there) I dutifully suggested a few inappropriate names, but my favorite is the Urinator.

I seriously flail my head against my wall just trying to name the characters in my book. time to admit I suck at naming things in general without resorting to a second grade level of maturity. Queen of the Pooheads wouldn't be a grand name for a baby so I did not enter. QofP just sounds like a Harry Potter sequel.

You're a sweetheart, Linda! I went and gave my two cents :)

You should know that my 3rd boy was nameless until he was 1 month old! LOL. I really suck at names :P But I'm glad there are already great suggestions! :D

You guys are great! Thank you all for commenting, and an extra thank you for everyone who entered the naming contest over at Sierra's blog. Winner will be posted here Monday (and likely on Sierra's blog, too).
