We’ve got two pregnant ladies at Ragan Communications, publisher of PR Daily.

One is having a boy; the other is having a girl.

Neither has a name picked out yet. They both sent out companywide emails, asking for suggestions.

Well, they’re working for the right company. If you’re a communications, PR, or journalism junkie, here are 20 possible names for your newborn:


Oxford: Like the comma, only this child will be more regal.

AP: Forget AJ, PJ, or JR. Let’s honor the “journalist’s bible.” Hey, it’s better than ROI.

Dash: This kid is never going to sit still.

Slash: Tell all your friends he’s your “sweet child o’ mine.”

Umlaut: Perfect if you’ve got some German heritage.

Lede: Ideal name for your first-born, but the only problem is that people might spell it “lead.”
