Couple Letting Strangers Vote On Their Baby’s Name… At A New Haven Starbucks
It can be really tough for new parents to decide on a name for their child. You can severely impact your kids life in a good way or a bad way. Looking at you Kimye.
It’s tough. No doubt. But ultimately, as a couple, as parents, you have to decide on a name for you child right? Not if you are Jennifer and Mark in New Haven.
The couple has been having a hard time deciding on a name for their baby boy who is due in September. So instead of ya know, being adults and just making a decision, they have decided to let complete strangers vote on it. Oh, it gets better. Where are they letting people vote? Their local Starbucks on the New Haven Green where they are regulars. They actually have set up signs and a coffee cup ballot box for people to vote between two names. Jackson and Logan. There has been 1,800 votes cast already!
The couple says the “polls” will close on Tuesday. They will then post the winning name in the Starbucks for everyone to see who won.
