Crowdsourcing a Baby Name From Preschoolers
Deciding on a baby name is tough, prompting plenty of bickering, indecision and unwelcome feedback. Why not just let someone else decide? We’ve heard of couples leaving it up to Starbucks employees or Facebook friends, but a Wisconsin preschool teacher just took the cake, letting her students decide.
Of course, Miss Julie won’t actually be letting her 4 and 5 year olds have the final say (at least we hope not!). Sure, a few classics made the list, like Henry, Allie, Sawyer and Anna. But they’re countered with rather unique monikers like Cindy Elf, Balloon, Racecar, Grandma and Assie. Yep, Assie.
Even if none of these names make the birth certificate, they make for some cute classroom art, which Julie’s co-teacher surprised her with. Julie’s cousin posted a photo of the name suggestions — written out on pink and blue onsie cutouts — on Imgur.
“My cousin is a preschool teacher and asked her students to suggest names for the baby she is expecting. It went well,” the user captioned the photo.
