For some reason, probably fear of stalkers and candy swipers, it's all the rage to give every member of your family an alias on your blog.
Take the world famous CJane for example, she calls her husband Chup and her baby The Chief. Or Mrs. Furious--she likes to refer to her girls as Kid and Baby. And then, of course, there's me, Barbara Bettencourt Levinski. I pulled that whole Amy Lawson thing clear out of the sky, and I've got to say, for some strange reason, it just works.
More importantly, my husband LeBron and my son Amir-Rasheed feel far more secure when their legal names are kept under wraps. That's why I've been leaning on the 'Jared and James' thing for all these years--good old fashioned identity protection, that's what it really comes down to.
Welp, now that we have a little bun in the oven, the 'Lawsons' have one more thing to think about: What in the world will we name this child in real life? And more importantly, what will we call this child in blogland?
That my friends, is where you come in. Yes, you.
For the next seven days (so until Wednesday, May 20th at midnight), you will have the opportunity...no, the privilege...no, the HONOR of suggesting a blog name for this little muffin.
Here's how it will work:
1) Leave a comment on this post suggesting a boy name, a girl name, or both. Just be sure to designate which one it is.
2) On Thursday morning, after we find out if the baby's actually a boy or a girl, a fine panel of distinguished judges will select their favorite name alias suggestions.
3) We'll bring it to a 48-hour reader vote.
Now get your thinking caps on! Won't this be fun?
Suggestions go in the comment section...
