Justin's brother Derek started the wonderful family tradition of announcing a forthcoming child's name through a puzzle or quiz game -- a tradition I am pleased to continue, sucker for trivia games that I am.

Our family and friends now too far-flung to do this around the dining room table at Christmas, so we will conduct our baby name challenge RIGHT HERE ON LIVEJOURNAL!

Here's how it works:
  1. I will post one clue per day, at approximately 6 p.m. (that's 4 a.m. in Auckland -- sorry David, 8 a.m. in California, 9 a.m. in Montana, 10 a.m. in Kansas City, 11 a.m. in Pittsburgh/DC, 3 p.m. in Oxford, and 4 p.m. in Ouagadougou, in case anyone in Ouagadougou decides to join in).
  2. You may then post a comment containing either your guess for the day or general commentary.
  3. Your comments will be SCREENED, which means they won't be visible to others until I approve them. I WILL ONLY APPROVE GUESSES IF THEY ARE INCORRECT; thus, if you see a name in comments, you can assume it is an incorrect guess.
  4. When you post a correct guess, I'll post that you have finished the game, but will not unscreen your comment.
  5. Using Google and other resources is totally fine.
  6. We will continue posting daily clues for as long as people are guessing!
  7. This is meant to be collaborative, so cross-talk is encouraged. If everyone thinks we're naming our daughter Gertrude but you happen to know that I was deeply traumatized by Gertrude the Puzzle Bird in 6th grade*, I encourage you to share that information.

* Totally made up. Gertrude the Puzzle Bird rocked my little 6th grade world.


Your first clue is this:
It's a saint's name.
