Just last week, new Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer and her husband, Zack Bogue, welcomed a bouncing baby boy into the world. A tweet from Mr. Bogue followed, but don’t hold your breath for the pretty printed birth announcements just yet. As was reported last week by the New York Times, the littlest Yahoo will likely be named based partially on input from a large circle of friends and family. “Name TBD — suggestions welcome!” wrote Ms. Mayer in an email obtained by the Times.
Now, via a tipster, we have what looks like it might be the hub for where they are crowdsourcing Baby Bogue’s name. The source said that the parents have sent out another group email, this one pointing to a poll on a startup site called “Belly Ballot,” asking everyone to choose among six names, ranging from Zachary (presumably after his dad) to the more avant garde Neval.
All this talk of “having it all” is almost enough to make us forget motherhood sounds like an easier job than reviving a company many have written off. For instance, we’re going to go vote for Manning, after our favorite tribe of football stars, rather than watch Yahoo’s stock drop.
