If someone paid you a million dollars to...

...name your baby after their company -- like Carl's Jr., Burger King, Nike or Yahoo -- would you do it?

I mean, hey, it's a million dollars.

I would do it then tell everybody how wonderful it was that the company (or whatever) was named after my baby.

My brother-in-law told me he would give me $5000 if I named my baby Barrack instead of Noah. I should have done it and made him pay me...oh well.

Shannon said...

yes because i can call my kid whatever i want but i still get paid the money. where can i sign up?

Erica said...

Burger King, never. Nike, sure. Being named after a mythical goddess isn't so bad, eh?

Jackie said...

My husband would DIE if Cadillac payed him $$ for naming a baby Cadillac. So heck yes-- if I get to choose the company ;)

I like money as much as the next guy, but I don't think names are something you should barter. Barter off advertisement space on your forehead if you want to, but don't sell off your kid for cash. Unless of course it's a billion bucks then let the kid suffer. Names don't matter... right?

Heck YES!!!!

I think most of us feel the same. Yes. B/C you could still call him "Sam" and if you knew you had a better shot to secure your children a better future by these funds, why wouldn't you?

"Kids, you're going to college."

hmmm yes, Sam's club would be a nice name.

But not as nice as Fuddruckers.

(sorry, couldn't help it. For those of you who don't know, it's a restaurant franchise. The name always shocks me just a little every time I hear it.)

In case you are wondering, this is just a hypothetical situation that Josh and I have discussed in the past. I always said, hey free money for my child's college education. Josh always thinks that a name is a little more important than that :)

ABSOLUTELY!!!!!!! When I give the child half of the dough ... I really don't think they'll mind!
