Facebook baby name contest

Toronto couple Robert and Rommy Alpinelli are naming their firstborn via Facebook. The baby girl, due in a matter of days, will be given whichever name has the most votes when Rommy goes into labor.

Right now, the top contenders are Aria and Melania. (The middle name will be Lauren.)

The contest is being sponsored by FabFind. The person who submits the winning name will win 25,000 rewards points from the site. The Alpinelli family will also receive rewards points.

To submit a name or cast a vote, log in to Facebook and go to the FabFind page. Anyone can play, but to win the prize you’ll have to be a Canadian resident living outside of Quebec.

  1. I didnt’ hold a contest but I did have a poll on some website–just people I knew. And it taught me that I shouldn’t tell people our name choices before the baby was born. Yikes (although it also warned me away from choices I liked but weren’t the best).
