Last week we reported that a horrible mom was letting the internet vote to decide the name of her child for a measly $5,000. We can now thankfully say that the whole thing was a big, stinking hoax, perpetrated by none other than the company holding the contest.
Suddenly we feel very lucky to have been born in the '80s. Back then, our biggest naming danger was being called Brandi or Lacey. One mom-to-be is letting the internet name her child, so who knows what it will be called.
Whether it's the Pope encouraging people to use "good, Christian names", or a government agency that oversees such things, some people are meeting resistance when it comes to what they want to name their children.
