In mid-2008, an Orlando couple traded the right to name their unborn child for a $100 gas card.
David Partin and Samantha Bailey agreed to name their child, due that winter, after the hosts of a local radio program called the Dixon & Willoughby Morning Show. The hosts said that once they saw the birth certificate, they would hand over the gas card.
So what happened?
I say “going to be” because right after the baby shower on the 21st, the radio program was canceled. Dixon and Willoughby were bumped to make room for a guy called Bubba the Love Sponge.
After that point, there’s no news of the show, the hosts, the parents or the baby. Were all bets off? Did the parents go ahead and use the name anyway?
A bit of a baby name mystery…
