History: Aunt Cyndee mentioned at a long-ago (3 years ago) Crab Day that she knew a couple who played a clue guessing game so family and friends could guess their baby's name. We thought, "genius!" and of course started coming up with clues that night. We had a ball teasing people for 12 weeks with Maddie's name possibilities. Last time's winner was Maddie's Nana, who guessed the First-Middle combo Madeline Rose.
Here's how the guessing game works: Every Sunday night from now until Little D makes her debut, we'll post a clue here on the blog. Because the blog posts are automatically posted as notes on our facebook accounts, the clues will appear there as well (with a slight delay, usually). You can reason and riddle (or just guess because COME ON, how long have you known us!?!?) and post your guesses as comments on the blog. Or, you can add comments on the facebook note and we'll take care of posting the facebook name guesses to the blog. You can guess first names, middle names, or first/middle combos. Guess as many times and as many names as you want, and don't hesitate to guess something that some one else already guessed, if that's what you're suspecting too. Oh, and don't whine yet if the clues are "too vague". We have MONTHS left here, we can't have you guessing it YET! Or can we...
We both hold the philosophy that a girl should have a name that is versatile. It should lend itself to a cute nickname when she’s just a little kid, and later seem professional and mature in its full form, you know, for when she's signing contracts in her law practice later. Unlike Maddie's name & nickname, which we both loved equally, this name/nickname combo was a compromise and source of significant debate between Bob & Meg.
Guess away, and check back.
OF COURSE YOU!
