'Name Drew Brees' baby' takes on a life of its own

If TwitterWorld had its way, Drew Brees and his wife Brittany would welcome little Boodat Brees into the world in a few days.

Or, perhaps, baby Blitz.

The New Orleans Saints quarterback and his wife Brittany, who is due to give birth to their son Baylen's little brother any day now, solicited name suggestions via Twitter and Facebook.

The stipulations: the name had to work for a boy and begin with the letter "B." Among the 6,000+ Twitter suggestions and 11,000+ Facebook suggestions were New Orleans names (Bienville, Bacchus, Beignet), French and Cajun names (Beaux, Bayou, Beauregard, Boudreaux), and footbally names (Bootleg, Blitz, Boodat). Saints defensive tackle DeMario Pressley suggested "BeMario" and "Bressley."

"There were five or six names that seem to come up a lot and that are on our radar and we have written down as possibilities," Brees said. "What I think is great is that obviously when the baby does come, and we do name him and announce that, there will be a lot of people taking credit for that name."

Maybe they should just go with Bob.
