Couple asks internet to name baby, Cthulhu in the lead

(WXYZ) - It all started with a simple post on Reddit and now a future father is getting what he asked for--a first and middle name for his daughter due in April.

Stephen McLaughlin's post on Reddit was pretty straight-forward. The subject line simply said "I am a crazy man trying to let the internet name my daughter--yes my wife knows."

He then provided a link to , a site where people can go and suggest a first and middle name or vote on their favorites for his unborn child. 

Right now, the first name 'Cthulhu' and middle name 'A ll-Spark' is in the lead. So, the daughter's name would be Cthulhu  All-Spark McLaughlin .

Cthulhu has managed to garner more than 30,000 votes since the Reddit post three days ago.

But there is hope, in second place is Amelia Mae, so we'll have to keep our eye on this one.

Now, the father-to-be did put a disclaimer in the post, saying that they will ultimately make the final decision, but it's still fun to watch.
