Free Domino’s Pizza for a baby named Brooklyn

Domino's pizza

Domino’s Pizza wants to give free pizza to any Leap Day babies named Brooklyn, in honor of Domino’s BRKLYN (Brooklyn-style pizza).

The family of the first baby named Brooklyn born in the continental U.S. on Leap Day (February 29, 2008) will receive $1,000 in Domino’s gift certificates.

All other babies named Brooklyn born on February 29th will receive a “Brooklyn-style pizza party.”

In both cases, any spelling of the name is acceptable.

Domino’s Pizza spokesperson Jenny Fouracre added:

Leap Year babies beat the odds by being born on February 29, a day that rolls around only once every four years. We think they are very special and deserve a memorable birthday with a good story about how they were named. What a lucky group — they will be 10 when most people born the day before or after them are 40.

Domino’s held a similar promotion four years ago for babies named Dot and Dorothy, in honor of Domino’s Dots.

Update, March 2008: The winner, a baby girl named Brooklyn Elizabeth Threinen, was born on Leap Day in Scottsdale, Arizona. (
