WANTED: Name For Doll! Win a Surprise!

Well, after two weeks of being a bit intimidated by my new sewing machine, I actually turned it on and made something today. And here is my 'something'. I sketched a doll-shape on paper for a pattern and cut her out of muslin. Turned and stuffed her. I wanted some funky hair so I unraveled an unfinished scarf so that the yarn would have some kink to it and sewed it on by hand. Drew on a face and here she is! Little Miss Nameless.
She really needs a name, and I just can't think of anything clever and fun. She's going to have lots of adventures this summer and I just can't keep referring to her as 'that doll'. So, if you will think hard and leave a name for her under 'comments', then I will choose the one I think suits her best and makes me laugh. The winner will receive a surprise in the mail from me! I'm not certain what it will be yet, but as I reread your blog I'll send something I think suits you!
So... name the doll and win a surprise!
Love, Joni
PS The poor naked baby has a dress in the making. I just chose to watch a movie with my husband instead of finishing it. She'll model it for you tomorrow on my version of 'Project Runway'.

Angie, I left you a message on your site. I don't know what PR is???
I'm going to look really stupid when I find out, aren't I?

I've always loved the name Hattie Creef. Would it fit?

i'm holding out to see her dress before i can properly submit a name. So adorable though - love the hair!!
I had the displeasure of reading that same "mr. darcy" book and was definitely not happy to see the darcys in a harlequin romance novel..

I vote Ms. Bloomers, since that's all she's wearing. :o)

Very cute little doll. I have yet to try one, but with 3 boys and no time, I'm not that motivated. :o)
