Chalk this one up to the sign of the times!
When Marissa Mayer, Yahoo CEO, welcomed her baby boy into the world, she and her husband Zack Bogue specifically asked for suggestions for their infant’s name.
According to Forbes, here is the e-mail they sent to family and friends:
“Hi All –
Zack and I welcomed BBB (Baby Boy Bogue) into our family last night.
He arrived exactly one week ahead of schedule at 22:22 p.m. on 9/30/12, weighing 8 lbs 14 oz and is 21″ tall. He is now officially BBBB – Big Baby Boy Bogue! We are all very happy and excited. Name TBD – suggestions welcome!
With love and happiness,
Marissa & Zack”
Technically, the typical online inquiry of crowd-sourcing shouldn’t be a total surprise when you look at their roots. Mayer was synonymous with Google until her recent departure this summer and her husband is a managing partner and angel investor of Founders Den.
