Couple lets Facebook choose baby's name

November 29, 2010 12:00:00 AM PST
A Canadian couple expecting their first child are using technology to name their baby.Robert and Rommy Alpinelli could not come up with a first name for their baby girl, due any day now. They wanted something that people will like, but is different.

A local social commerce website, FabFind, heard about the dilemma and came up with an idea to have people vote for a name. More than 1,300 names have already been submitted to Facebook.

Aria and Melania are currently battling for the lead.

"I like them both, but I think now we've kind of started thinking more about Melania. We started sort of lobbying for that name more a little bit," said Rommy Alpinelli.

The parents have selected Lauren as their daughter's middle name.

The person who submits the winning name will win more than $600,000 in deals from the FabFind website, and expectant mother Rommy will get $40,000 in deals.
