DeLAND, Fla. -

A DeLand couple is using a unique method for naming their baby--by turning to the Internet to let people decide for them.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports Shelly Nystrom, who is six months pregnant, and her husband are using the website "Belly Ballot" to pick their baby's name.

The site lets family and friends suggest names for the child. Since posting the ballot a few weeks, ago, the Nystoms have more than 1,000 votes and say they're happy with the top-voted name so far--Lillian.

BellyBallot.com launched last year and 5,000 names have been chosen on the website.
