Couple letting coffee drinkers choose baby name

ASSOCIATED PRESS

WEST HAVEN, Conn.  — A Connecticut couple are letting customers at a Starbucks coffee shop choose the name of their baby.

Twenty-five-year-old Jennifer James and 24-year-old Mark Dixon of West Haven tell the New Haven Registerthey have been struggling between two names for the boy they are expecting in September.

So they decided to put it to a vote.

They’ve placed signs at the Starbucks on the New Haven Green, where they are regulars, asking people to vote for either the name Jackson or Logan.

So far, they have received about 1,800 votes in the coffee cup serving as a ballot box, and say “Logan” is leading. But there is still time.

The baby poll closes on Tuesday. The couple says they will post the winning name in the store.
