Whoever has the winning entry will be bringing gnome the bacon, with a special prize to be sent by yours truly.  Good luck, and have fun everyone!

  1. Example: I suggest the name Chloe Jr. (which came from a certain small member of our household)

    *Please refrain from voting until Friday night, when everyone has had a chance to participate.*

    1. Of course! You can enter as many times as you wish ~ One name per comment, please, to keep things simple ;)

      ETA ~ We have decided to create a separate post once all the names have been submitted, at which time you can submit your vote. (Above comments were deleted due to the change in voting process)

    Gnome N. Clature


    Just saying.
