Another set of FREAK parents selling their baby's name online
ebay ^ | June 11, 2005 | TheOtherOne

She's Healthy Happy and has NO NAME!

A few weeks ago Terry Gonzalez from ABC KGUN 9 news contacted us wanting to do a story on our unnamed baby. We agreed and a few days later we were everywhere. Our story has been featured on News and Radio across America and other Countries such as the Philippines and Australia Including: KFI News Radio and CNN Anderson Cooper 360

Good Morning America has contacted us They all Want UPDATES!!!

Since all the media attention, we have received hundreds of emails and countless phone calls from people suggesting names.

After almost two years of trying to find the perfect name for our perfect child,

WE GIVE UP!!!!!!

We have come to the conclusion that no matter what she is named on paper she will always be our "Baby"

Help our daughter "make a name for herself"

Besides International Media exposure, the highest bidder is securing a wonderful future for countless children.100% goes to Charity!!!!! (minus any ebay fees) 50% will go to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and 50% to the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles.

Times are a little tough for us right now. I have just graduated from The University of Arizona and for the past few years Andrew took care of the kids while I was in school. Student Loans, Grants and help from my family have been our main sources of income. Originally, we thought selling the rights to our baby's name would be a great way to earn capital for the business we want to start. Instead, we decided that though we are in a bit of a bind, our kids are quite lucky while children throughout the world suffer tremendously. We refuse to send our children to Daycare and our love and attentiveness (and DNA) have proven effective. Mea is four and reading above a first grade level, and put together 50 piece puzzles with no effort when she was 15 months old! She has been singing since she was 9 months and has an amazing voice. She is a Prodigy, and "Baby" is on her way. She is not yet 2 and is also singing and beginning to do math!!! Our children are amazing and will go on to do great things and we want to give other children the same opportunity.

As of now "Baby's" Birth certificate is blank. The highest bidder will choose a name to fill in the blank, which will be used on all official documents (i.e. school, medical) until she is of legal age and can choose to change her name if she wishes. We reserve the right to refuse any name we deem profane or indecent.

How cute would little Pepsi, Jell-O, or Ebay be on the playground!

Why not: Gerber Barbie Microsoft Nike Oprah We figure, If Goldenpalace.com spent $650,000 to name a monkey someone out there must be willing to "Buy it Now" for $1,000,000 to help children.

I've got ten bucks that says these 'parents' are Liberals who are firmly against suborning slavery, indentured servitude, child emotional abuse, child prostitution and the pimping thereof.

Except, of course, in their own case.

OK, maybe we do need to start giving out licenses before people can have children.

That's the epitome of selfishness.

To not even feel the need to give your child a sound of personalization is almost neglectful.

I believe that it was Mark Twain who stated that the sweetest sound to any person is the sound of his/her own name. Whether we really like the name or have just come to associate it with ourself, it becomes an almost tangible part of a person. To not give this deep-seeded connection to a personalized sound seems to be an act of unconcern for that child.

I could be wrong, but there should be (at least) four grandparents hopping mad. I know my mother would still take a switch to me if I pulled something

like this.

In choosing a name, I'd venture a guess as to the parents' lifestyle and political orientation and I'd be sure I kept that in mind.

Since it's a girl, I'd pick "Phyllis Schlafly" or "Martha Dandridge" or "Laura Barbara Nancy Betty Pat Mamie".

If it were a boy, "John Paul Benedict" or "Ronald Wilson" or "James Dobson" would do nicely.

Maybe they should just do what the character Murray did in "A Thousand Clowns" when his lowlife sister deposited her infant son on his doorstep.

He didn't name the boy. Instead, Murray told the boy he could pick whatever name he wanted, for as long as he wanted, until he was 13, at which point he would have to pick a permanent name:

"He went through a long period of dog names when he was still little, Rover and King having a real vogue there for a while. For three months he referred to himself as Big Sam, then there was Snoopy, Chip, Rock, Marty, Lamont, Chevrolet, Wyatt, Yancy, Woodrow, The Phantom and Dr. Morris Fishbein. He received his library card last year in the name of Raphael Sabatini, and only last week a friend of his called asking if Toulouse could come over.”

Apparently too indecisive to even get jobs. On one hand she says "times are a little tough right for us right now" but on the other hand they want to give all the money to charity. Nothing wrong with this picture. Pity the child.

I found this whole thing so disgusting that I emailed the president of ebay. The auction has now been removed. Good!
