I can’t tell you how many times people have tried guessing the name of our mystery boy. So I thought it would be fun to hold a contest. Of course every contest needs a prize, so I looked around at my bookshelves the other day and realized I had several books for giving away. Hooray! Sadly, these are books that were never claimed *sigh*
So remember: Thou must returneth to claim thine prize (or would it be prizeth?) I dunno. But haste ye back to this post on Nov 21st to see the winner! Oh, and the fabulous books up for the taking…
The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews And
Winning Him Without Words by Lynn Donovan and Dineen Miller
So here’s how it works: You get one entry for leaving a comment below and additional entries by doing any of the following:
Share this giveaway on Facebook or Twitter
Try and guess the name of the baby. Seriously. Give it a shot! (Hint: it’s a boy bible name.) If you get it right, I’ll throw in a box of red hots.
That’s four ways to enter :]
Please let me know what you did so I can tally your entries!
All entries will go into a hat and be pulled out by a really cute two-year old. It will probably have a elk on it. Not the kid, the hat.
The winner will be chosen and announced below on November 21, 2011 so please check back or follow me on Facebook to be automatically notified! Of course, If I’m having to-be-named-baby, I will post the winner as soon as I can 😉
As the Dad do I get to guess? wait I came up with it so I guess I have an advantage. 🙂 Sorry to all the other folks trying to guess. I'm voting for Levi he said it should be (Treeclimber). Noah
Hi love! Your son has great taste 🙂 And you too since you actually came up with little man's name. xoxo
Step aside, Noah, I got this. Boy Bible names? Thomas Nelson. What? It's a boy, and a Bible. Wait, I can do better. King James. Oh, yeah.
No! I know. Zondervan. Zondervan Wycliffe Bischof.
Oh, just hand over the red hots and no one gets hurt.
And happy birthing!!
You're a riot, Beverly!
And I have "Jacob" from Cathy and "Habakuk" from Harmony. Hmmm…Habakuk Bischof…it has a ring to it! LOL
You guys are the most fun I've had all day. (Of course, that's what I get for listening to the news!)
King James Bischof has quite a ring, too.
Wishing you the best–and soon, Joanne and fam.
I'm torn, and like Rumplestiltskin, want 3 guesses (I think it was him),
but I'll go with Timothy.
I can't compete with Bev's wit (^_^) so I'll have to say Joshua. I also thought of Ahaz but somehow it doesn't seem to fit.
OK. We have to get your dad into this contest because he just won't give up on figuring out a name. These are the whole names he came up with – just a few! He has come up with Amos Hezekiah, Jonah Micah Nahum or Obadiah Johnson.
Hi, I'm an old friend of your moms. I love the name Elijah or Eli for short.
What a fun contest! I'm going to enter with "Gideon." I'm sure you're new little guy will be a "mighty man of valor." Can't wait to see pictures. 🙂
Oh, yes, and I followed, posted and tweeted. 🙂
Hi Dona and Tami! I love all your ideas!
LOL, mom. Dad has been calling this baby Obadiah Johnson for months now. Sounds like a future president :]
Awesome, Karen! I have all your votes tallied and that's one of my favorite names.
Wonder if any body's got it right yet 😉 *shakes box of red hots*
I like Asher – it means happiness in hebrew, but I think Luke sounds good with Levi. I know you have picked an awesome name for your little man. Love you, Debi Jones
I love the secret name game! We did it with Elijah and throughly enjoyed torturing everyone. My guess is Malichi, thanks !! Lindsay
Hi Joanne. Since you commented on my blog the other day, I thought I'd stop by and check out yours! Congrats on the upcoming growth of your family. 😛
How about Micah?
To both the Lindsays…love you're "M" names!!
Love all these choices and since so many people assume I'm having twins, who knows? Perhaps we'll need a backup :}

Thank you for your patience…I know I'm a couple days late but our little house has a new family member! 😀 (More to come on that story…)
I rustled up a cute two year old complete with elmo slippers and cozy nightgown and she selected our winner.
CONGRATULATIONS TAMI!!!!!! You have won both books!
And our mystery name was: "Caleb"
The box of red hots will go to Dave and Cathy who posted a guess of his due date on FB, Nov 20th. I know, not really part of the contest, but such a good guess deserves a little prize 😉
I'm too late for your contest, but I wanted to say thanks for stopping by MyCup2Yours; I always love meeting other writers! (You commented about being 40 weeks…) I hope you (and your precious baby) are doing well!
