In her crib in the nursery, baby Cthulhu waits dreaming.

Stephen McLaughlin is just a regular guy who is about to become a dad. And, like most normal boring soon-to-be fathers, he created a website specifically so that random strangers on the Internet can suggest and then vote on first and middle names for his unborn daughter. Dads! Am I right?

Thus far, the Internet is being surprisingly conservative, with the top choice of name currently being Amelia Mae McLaughlin. That's surprisingly non-terrible. Still, though, there's a lot of other options that could still bubble up to the top before the April 2 due date. Some of the worst-slash-best are:

  • Cthulhu Titanium McLaughlin
  • Streetlamp Salad McLaughlin
  • Luna Le-Dash-A McLaughlin
  • Megatron Doge McLaughlin
  • Zelda Meagan McLaughlin
  • Not Zelda Meagan McLaughlin

I have to admit, I'm not totally against Megatron Doge McLaughlin. But probably not for a girl.

Anyway, don't worry too much for the well-being of this tiny human being that will come screaming into this world in just a few weeks. Her mother is aware of the Name My Daughter website and is accepting the Internet's input up to a point. So, the website is really suggesting a name more than choosing one. Which I think seems reasonable. And I think that my future son Megatron Doge DiClaudio would as well.
