Woman Letting Internet Name Her Baby for $5,000

Natasha Hill internet baby name
Huffington Post

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. 

Natasha Hill is the winner of a contest being held by Belly Ballot — a website for indecisive future parents. The internet (all of it) will get to vote on what Natasha should name her child, and if she does it, she gets $5,000. People won’t get to write in — they’ll have to pick from a list of “trending” baby names and suggestions from advertisers. So, probably Ethan, Liam, Olivia, Sophia, Emma, and whatever their sponsor’s CEO’s childhood dog was called.

What do you think? Should a parent be picking out their child’s name, or is this really not a big deal at all? Let us know in the comments.

UPDATE: The whole thing was a hoax.
