Good luck finding a keychain with that name

A video game company is promising free games for life, provided that you name your child after one of their characters:

“Skyrim Day,” which is November 11th, 2011, is the day in which Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is slated to be released. To celebrate this, Skyrim developer Bethesda has announced a rather peculiar contest.

If you (or your misses, depending on your gender) give birth to a child on November 11th, 2011 and name him “Dovahkiin,” Bethesda will reward you with a Steam key that will give you, your spouse and your sure-to-be-ridiculed child access to every Bethesda/ZeniMax game ever. That includes any game to come out in the future.

In related news, I’d be happy to name any of my future children “Mercedes” if it gets me one of these.  Oh, wait: it’s been done.

    About 20 years ago, my mom had a silver haired schnauzer\poodle mix that she named “Mercedes”. She used to joke that “This is as close as I’m likely to get to having a silver Mercedes!”
