contest!

Our first ever
Johnson-McCormick Family Blog
Contest!!!
**************
What do you think Baby's Sister's name is going to be???
Leave your guess in the comments below~
~the first person to guess correctly wins!
*****
Grand Prize is...
drumroll please...
a personal phone call from the two Big Brothers to congratulate you on your big win! No matter where in the world you live, as long as you have some sort of phone, they will call you! (and believe us, that is an experience worth playing for!)
*****
Rules
  • Multiple family members can play, but only one guess per person
  • To play you must leave some sort of name or identifying information so that we can announce 'you' as the winner if you win (in other words, no purely anonymous comments will be posted)
  • There exist a handful of people out there in the world who already know the name -- you are ineligible and are not allowed to play!
    • *****
      Contest is on until Baby Sister's arrival!
      *****
      Latest blog meter stats tell us that at this point we have between 450-500 readers per day (who would have ever thunk that?!?!). Anyhoo, what this tells us is that there are a lot of you out there who are reading. Click on 'comments' to play folks! We may never have another contest again! It is time to come out of the woodwork!
      **************
      P.S. There was a clue in our post from May 1...

      Cool clue! I'm guessing Mia...

      M & M said...

      I'm guessing Mallory. Am I supposed to guess here? LOL. I'm doing it for the grand prize of the PHONE CALL! (Although, I have to say it will be a close second to getting a call with my referral!!! I'll wish for both!).

      Asiaha said...

      Umm Monica?

      Maria? Would be easier if we knew all of our grandparents first names - maybe?

      I love the baby-class for the kids. We don't have that here.

      Tricia V. said...

      My guess is Megan.

      Why? It is of Welsh/Gaelic origins, just like "Kyle" and "Owen" are!

      Alexandra said...

      Too bad my top two guesses have already been taken. I guess Mirel.

      I know everyone thinks it is an "M" but I think it is a "W" turned upside down (you never know with your clever crazy boys how they might have managed to get the wheels on the 'bottom')... so, my guess is: Whitney. Jack's guess is Wendy.
      ~Amy & Jack (hoping to get our call from K & O at home in Oregon)

      I guess Edith! I googgled up the phrase you used on the May 1st post 'keeping up withe the jonesses' and apparently Edith is the daughter of the jonesses

      :)

      Laurence said...

      I am going to guess "Nora." We think that it is an "n" on the train with the "k" and "o."
      Laurence

      It may be my old eyes but it looks like an "H" to me in which case I'm guessing Hannah or Hanne (if you spell it the Scandinavian way). It it's an M I'm guessing "Mackenzie" after my dear granddaughter.

      Katherine

      Mom to 3 said...

      Apparently, I'm the only one that thought it looked like an H!! Must be the sleep deprivation that is causing my poor eyesight! It certainly couldn't be old age :)

      Well, it's a good thing that I have 3 kids who would like to enter guesses!

      Big sister thinks: Morgan
      Baby brother thinks: Madison
      Baby sister thinks: Maya

      Did I spell mine right? Moira. . .

      tracy said...

      Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!!!
      That's my pick because 1) my REAL first pick is Maya but that was already guessed, and 2) I've just always wanted to write Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!!!
      Good luck during the countdown to Baby Sister, Heather!
      Tracy

      Heather said...

      My guess was "May," but since it's already been picked, I'm going to guess "Mae"

      So fun!

      Heather

      Analeise said...

      Marley

      heutehiermorgendort said...

      My guess ist MONA. Quite a popular name here in Germany, not so sure about the US though...

      Mark and Sarah said...

      How about Madeline?

      Troy & Tara Livesay Family said...

      Lydie changed her mind - she loves getting phone calls from older men and does not want to give up a shot at that --- SO -- she is guessing : Harper

      Britt is going with Hazel - but she wants her phone call to go to Hope who also would love to get the phone call.

      and now we have run out of family members. :(

      Stella said...

      Is it Aviva??? I thought I commented before, but it didn't show up......

      Anonymous said...

      I'm the one who guessed edith

      ~Zahra

      My guess is Mia.

      From Cheryl Alander

      Candis said...

      Well...in honor of the dedicated household support from MorMor and MorFar (no offense to the McCormack side), I was leaning toward Gudrun. BUT I remembered the M, so I veered toward Margit or Maj. However, a streak of American independence won out, so I think the name is MAC! Mac McCormick sounds just great. The Peanut and I will expecting a call.

      Chelsea said...

      My guess is Macy - sp?

      -Chelsea

      memphislis said...

      I guess Hannah. This is so fun!

      Anonymous said...

      H? Hmmm, Hope I guess. . .Darn is that an H or M? Sigh

      Oh, and I will guess Michele for the M name. . .for obvious reasons!

      Michele

      Story of our Life said...

      Well, before even reading the guesses I would have "guessed"

      MYA MAE...

      why this guess?

      Because my aunt (who is my age) and ALSO has twins the same age as K & O...

      Had her baby TODAY and named her...

      MYA MAE (not sure how she is spelling it)

      That's my guess. :)

      Aves @ Call of the Phoebe said...

      My guess: Maeghan, or Marianne

      Aves

      Anonymous said...

      Thought of another name - Marty. I'll explain why I guessed that when the boys call...

      Katherine

      Stella said...

      Oh, by the way, I guessed Aviva because it means "spring" or "springtime" and if we are guessing middle names, then I guess Aviva May or Aviva Mae. I think that Kyle, Owen, and Aviva sound pretty good together!

      thebeadlady said...

      Perhaps it's Maj - Swedish for May

      Anonymous said...

      How 'bout AURELIA MAE ?_? ~Selly

      Erin said...

      I think its Madison. Then Maddie for a nickname!

      M3 said...

      Hm, I was going to guess Maya, but I think someone already guessed that. Oh well, it's still my guess.

      Holli said...

      I was going to guess May too!

      Analeise said...

      Marley

      Rose Anne said...

      My guess is Maja Lea.
      God Bless,
      Rose Anne

      Bek said...

      Ok, I also thought it was an "h" and not an M....

      I know Mae is chosen, but I'll say Hope!

      Nicole said...

      I thought it was an N. I guess Nia it means purpose in swahili and was my first choice for a girls name.

      Nicole

      Anonymous said...

      My guess is Michelle, but after seeing the other guesses not so sure!
      Good luck

      Chancesmom (and Chance who would be amazed at a call from K and O)

      ManyBlessings said...

      I guess Marissa. :)

      megadena said...

      I was going to guess my name Megan, and then May, but now I am thinking it would be Margret, aka Maggie

      Nikki said...

      I would bet a million dollars that it's Maya!! Okay... maybe not a million, but I have a good feeling!

      Mr. & Mrs. Lorentzon said...

      I was going to guess Maggie or Megan or Madison or Molly but those are taken,

      and then I was going to guess some Swedish names (since you refer to the grandparents as Mormor and Morfar) but most of those are also taken , so I will go with:

      Miranda

      -Katie in Sweden

      Anonymous said...

      My first guess would have been Maja, but since someone already said it my guess will be Matilda! I also thought about Maura, but I'll still go for Matilda :)
      -Heidi

      rhea jill said...

      Since most of the names here begin with the letter M, I'm guessing Morgan. Happy labor!

      Mayhem said...

      My official guess: Myra

      I love thinking about baby naming and wondering what people will choose. However, in this case I must say I don't have a gut feeling on what Baby Sister's name will be. Can't wait to find out!

      Aussie girl Lisa said...

      I'm thinking it will be...Maeve
