I wanted to send a big thanks to all of you who have sent in name suggestions to the Name Mia’s Baby contest we’ve got going here at Team Nibiru. We’ve received so many great names, I don’t know how we’ll ever be able to choose the best. What a tough decision it’s going to be!
The latest contest news is important: we’ve set a deadline! That’s right. The deadline for sending us your name for Mia’s first-born baby is Saturday, December 15, 2018. That’s December 15 at noon, Pacific Standard Time. So, there’s still time to send your suggestions, for a chance to win the prize!
“Prize? What prize?! I didn't know there was going to be a prize!” you might be saying.
Well, of course there’s a prize. You can’t have a proper contest without a prize! And the prize in this contest is…a wand! A wand similar to the beauty shown below.
The winning name will be the one we at Team Nibiru feel best suits the characters involved. The most important of those characters are the parents – Mia and her husband, Hyatt – and of course the baby, too! The way the name fits in with the story will be a factor, too.
Some of you have asked me whether the new baby will be a boy or a girl. Well, I’m afraid you’ll have to wait and see. At this point, we all have to wait and see – because I haven’t completely settled on an answer to that question. So, the name you choose could be a boy’s name, or it could be a girl’s. And, if you like, you're also welcome to suggest the baby's gender, too, along with why you think it should be a boy or a girl.
Of course, since we’re talking about a baby and family who belong to a society on an alien planet, light-years away from our own, the name you choose could be one that none of us Earthlings would particularly identify with any gender. So, in truth, your choices are as wide open as the galaxy!
Remember, when you send in your name suggestions, we’d love it if you’d tell us the reasons behind your choice or choices. You don’t have to, though. After all, sometimes a name is just right because it’s right!
Winner Notification and Prize Presentation
Once the contest is over and the judges have reached their decision, we’ll notify the winner by email. Then the prize will be delivered by courier, right to their door. And if YOU are the winner, we surely hope you’ll send us a picture of yourself with your new wand. (Special wand-wielding attire is optional.)
We’ll also post a story about the winner and the winning name on our blog – along with photos, if the winner is willing. 😊
There’s just one more important thing I should mention about the contest prize. Beautiful though it will be, we can’t say for certain what magical powers the Winner’s Wand may have. That will be for the happy winner to discover! 🐲
Happy naming, everyone! And good luck to you!
All the best – and adventurously yours,
Lorna J. Carleton
