Suggest a Name for DVP Baby


Update: Apparently, they've gone with Shane. The thing I find hard to believe is that this is their fifth boy with an "Sh" name and they're only just now using Shane.

This morning, the population of Toronto grew by one as a baby decided to be born on the side of the Don Valley Parkway.

The baby's parents were southbound heading to Toronto East General Hospital at around 8 AM when mom just couldn't hold him in anymore, so dad pulled over near Wynford Drive and delivered the baby happy and healthy with the assistance of an EMS dispatcher over the phone.

Since the family has four other kids already, all with names beginning with "Sh," Paramedic Marty Bulay (first on scene) suggested the parents call their new son Shawn (because it rhymes with Don).

I just wanted to take this opportunity to welcome the little one into our world, and also to see if our readers might be able to come up with any other suggestions for a name. Add a comment if you have any ideas.

I suggest Showoff. How about you?
