(USA TODAY) -- Forget asking family members for their input. One couple is turning to Internet users to help name their unborn baby.

Stephen McLaughlin took to Reddit to solicit baby names for his daughter, expected to be born April 2.

So far the top name is Amelia All-Spark for first and middle name but that could change.

Other first-name contenders are Cthulhu, Megatron and Zelda.

Not all suggestions have made the list. According to online comments, McLaughlin said he had to remove some names related to sexually transmitted infections and sexual positions.

McLaughlin and his wife, however, are not as crazy or naive as they seem for creating this online vote. They will still make the final decision.

"Alas, my daughter shall not be named WackyTaco692," McLaughlin wrote. "Sorry guys, the wife wouldn't go for a free for all."
