As you probably know I am having a baby girl later this summer. I mentioned in a previous post that my husband and I have very different ideas about naming this baby girl. I want something somewhat unique and maybe literary, he wants the same names everybody else is naming their baby. Talking about names can get stressful in our home.
I thought I'd have some fun and host a little baby name contest and giveway. Actually, I've got a few in mind. This first one is going to be all about famous (female) authors names.
Here is the run down. Below I will list the last names of several authors and you will need to provide me with the first name of the author. Keep in mind that they are all women (I'm having a girl) and please do not use search engines or look at the answers that others have left in the comments.
The winner will be determined by the most correct answers. If more than one person has guessed the most correct than I will have a random drawing for those people to determine the winner.
The prize: A new paperback copy of Alexander McCall Smith's 9th book in The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency, The Miracle at Speedy Motors.
Contest will run through Wednesday June 10 and I will announce the winner on Thursday the 11th. If I can not access your e-mail address through your blog (or if you don't have a blog) than please leave your e-mail with your answers.
9. Beecher Stowe
14. Bronte (3 possible correct for this one)
15. Hodgson Burnett
17. S. Buck
20. du Maurier
