Starbucks patrons help choose baby’s name

Connecticut couple Jennifer James, 25, and Mark Dixon, 24, are expecting a baby boy in September.

They couldn’t decide between the names Jackson and Logan, so they took it to a vote…at their local Starbucks.

The couple got the idea for the voting based on a system used by that Starbucks location, where customers cast votes for its employee of the month.

“We saw that and thought we might as well see how it works,” Dixon said.

Nearly 1,800 votes were cast, “not including people who voted more than once.” Most people voted for either Logan or Jackson, but other votes were for “neither,” “Chaz,” “Obama,” “Lincoln” and “Webster.”

Logan won by a margin of about “400 or 500” votes, said Mark.

So the baby’s name will be Logan Jackson Dixon.

“The couple planned to end their contest Tuesday and make a poster to hang in the store, notifying customers which name won.”

Too bad Glen was never a contender.
