Posted on April 26, 2014

The Internet has named a baby Amelia after her parents let the Internet choose their baby's name.The name was a good one, but the parents were not going to let some weird name win.

Amelia's father let the Internet decide on a site named namemydaughter.com.
"Hi, My name is Stephen and much to the disbelief of my wife, I have decided to let the internet name* my daughter.

Yeah that is an asterisk, Unfortunately internet I know better than to trust you. We will ultimately be making the final decision, Alas my daughter shall not be named WackyTaco692. Sorry guys the wife wouldn't go for a free for all.
CNET reports that Cthulhu was a contender and thankfully did not win. The Amelia name was inspired by Amelia Pond from Doctor Who. The baby's full name is Amelia Savannah Joy McLaughlin.

The wisdom of crowds is not always going to work out this well when it comes to naming babies. Fortunately, Amelia worked out well for the McLaughlin family. Other families should probably avoid this baby naming concept.
