An expectant mom in West Los Angeles has agreed to have the name of her unborn child decided by public vote.
Natasha Hill said she couldn't decide what to call the baby, due in September, so, she entered a $5,000 contest setup by a baby-naming website.
Out of 80 women who entered, Belly Ballot selected her. She told them she wanted to use the prize money to pay off credit card debts and put the rest away for her child's college fund.
The pregnant woman "thought it was a really cool idea."
Her boyfriend Craig is less enthusiastic about strangers choosing the name of their firstborn. He's concerned that voters will choose something crazy.
The voters will be given with a list of names specially selected by the website and the advertiser who has stumped up the prize money.
Product names will not be allowed, nor names that are ‘too crazy,' and everyone gets just one vote.
