This is so lame! One does not have some big, highly publicized contest to choose a baby name and then decide at the last minute they don’t like the name that came up as the winner. The Canadian couple who Maria Guido wrote about a few months ago had started a website called NameMyDaughter.com and were letting the Internet choose their new baby’s name. The website did state that:
‘Unfortunately internet I know better than to trust you,’ Stephen wrote. ‘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.’
When it should have basically just said, sorry Internet, I know better than to trust you and no matter what you pick we will go with a boring name anyway – because that is exactly what parents Alysha and Stephen McLaughlin did.
The epic name the internet chose for their new baby girl?
The BORING name the couple went with instead?
Amelia Savannah Joy.
Amelia is a perfectly fine and cute baby name and all, but how do you go from Cthulhu to Amelia? This would be like if I invited you all over for ice cream sundaes with extra sprinkles but then presented you with a handful of Tic-Tacs instead. And her middle name? The top choices were Of-The-Sea, Le-Dash-A, Salad and Pond. Which are nowhere near close to Savannah Joy. YAWN.
They should have gone with Cthulhu instead. Not only because that was the clear winner, but because they could have shortened it to Lulu and everything would have worked out just fine. This couple totally chickened out. They shouldn’t even be allowed to have a cat naming contest.
