[CONTEST] I Just Realized…

…I never mentioned at the blog, that the wife and I are expecting our first child at the end of August!

Yes, yes, I know that this gives me +1 to virility and charm in all subsequent RPG games – but the bigger issue is the naming process.

What on Earth (or Mars, or wherever) are we going to name this future bundle of poop, ummm, I mean, JOY?

So here is what I propose: Give us your suggestions – as many as you like – in the comments (boy or girl, the gender is at yet underdetermined.) The wife and I will pick our favorites and I’ll put up a later poll for each gender.

The names that get the most votes will win a book prize package for their suggester! I don’t know what it will contain yet, but suffice it to say that there will be a panoply of reading! (No guarantee that the name will actually be our kid’s name – we have family to consider – but we thought this would be fun to do anyway.)

The name-dropping will close two weeks from today on Feb. 22, 2012.

(Feel free to have fun with this, we will seriously entertain anything. I’m rooting for something out of a fantasy book, my wife would like a prosaic name – so you could break the impasse!)
