Shiloh. Jermajesty. Suri. Zuma. Ickyd. Apple. Celebrities don’t give their kids names that require a last initial on the first day of school. They name them after cities and board games and pieces of fruit.
What you see at the top and bottom of this post are photos taken of an assortment of See’s Candies®. Chocolates and caramels. Brittles and buttercreams. Maples, mochas and marzipans. A variety of lovely, old-fashioned candies with a surprise inside each one.
What do these things have to do with each other? Well, I’ve mentioned before that I have six (SIX!) pregnant friends. One is my sister. A few days ago, she decided to list all of the reasons why she couldn’t name my unborn niece after me, ranging from (accidentally!) shutting her finger in a car door when we were kids to the whole banned-for-life-from-the-Waffle-House thing. Hey, I never said I was a role model. So, in lieu of giving her an Atomic Wedgie, I’m asking you to help me give her the Celebrity Baby Name Treatment.
It’s time to *NAME MY NIECE* for your chance to win a $25 gift card from See’s Candies®.
To enter the contest, just consult your inner Gwen or Gwyneth, and come up with a name that’s truly worthy. A historical figure/spice pairing, perhaps? Or the name of your first pet plus a term used in knitting? Maybe a French word accompanied by an animal sound? Unleash your Inner Angelina!
You could even name the baby after a See’s candy. I mean, have you SEEN the See’s Peanut Butter Egg? It puts that other one to shame.
1. Established celebrity baby names will be disqualified. We need a one-of-a-kind name.
2. One entry per person. Because coming up with bad baby names can get addictive.
3. The contest officially ends Thursday at midnight (CST). Unfortunately, I can’t force my sister to use any of the names, so the winner will be randomly chosen and announced Friday at noon. Nothing makes the end of the workweek fly like deciding how to spend a gift card.
So, what’re you waiting for? Little Wynonna Cleopatra needs a real name!
