Woman Letting Internet Name Her Baby Could Get $5,000

A pregnant woman from California has sold the right to name her first baby to an internet site for a whopping $5,000.

Natasha Hill’s baby, due in September, will be decided by people voting on a baby-naming website.

Natasha, 26, from Los Angeles, said she could not decide what to name her baby and entered the $5000 competition run by the internet site ‘Belly Ballot.’

Natasha was chosen from 80 entries after she told the website she’d use the prize money to pay off credit card debts and invest the rest for her child’s college fund.

Her boyfriend Craig is less enthusiastic, expressing concern that voters won’t be able to resist the opportunity to select something crazy.

‘He’s afraid voters are going to use it as a chance to do something crazy,’ said Natasha.

However, visitors to the website will be given a list of names specially selected by the site and the advertiser who will pay the prize money.

The contest begins on March 18 at, a site based on the naming game sometimes played at baby showers, during which guests are given a list of names by expecting parents, and then vote on their favorite.

The online version allows expectant moms to sign up groups of family and friends, and gives them ten names – five boy, five girl – to choose from.

Under the terms of the $5,000 competition, Natasha cannot reject the chosen name.
