    I wouldn’t do it but if other people want to, I’m not against it. Doesn’t mean I’d pay the money for it though, lol.

    No thank you. Seems over the top to me.

    Weird, but not my baby, so they’re the ones responsible for their kid.  Not sure why you would decide to have a baby if you were having financial issues to begin with, but to each their own.

    No way not for $5k….. But  I also don’t have one of those huge ads covering my car either.  I would be terrified of what my kid gets saddled with forever.

    When I first read the headline my first thought was that some company was brand naming the kid….like the kid would be named Pepsi or something.  But I guess as long as they are normal names there’s no harm. 

    It’s not for me though, I could bearly take people offering choices for a dog name.  I can’t imagine how picky I’ll be once I have a child to name.

    I hope the names that people will be voting on will be better than her stated picks

    It would be hard to turn down $5000 for someone to name your kid, especially since this girl had 5 boy and 5 girl names to chose from, but I personally think picking a name should be between the parents.

    I personally would not be supportive of this idea on the basis of my own feelings as well as Proverbs 22:1, which speaks about the importance of a good name vs. money:

    “A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.” (NIV)

    Well that’s an interesting way to pay off debt… I couldn’t do it.

    I think it’s odd but to each their own.  I wouldn’t do it though.

    @Brielle:  Isn’t that verse talking about reputation? I don’t like the idea of letting someone else name my baby, but that seems like a stretch.

    @UK Bride:  Yes, I believe you are correct, although when I think of this verse, I also think about the significance that was placed on the naming of many children throughout scripture and the fact that God chose to rename specific individuals found in scripture.

    I probably should clarify that I was not attempting to use this verse to say that selling the naming rights to one’s child necessarily is evil. Rather, I just found it interesting that this verse discusses the value of a good name as it relates to the value of money.  I hope that makes sense.  Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to clarify.

    If I had a list of names I loved and couldn’t decide between, and was offered money to let people vote on a favorite, maybe. If I had no input on the name options?  No way.
