Here our the winners and some of the best entries in our That's What She Said Baby Name contest, in honor of Jim and Pam's daughter, Cecilia.

As Matt points out in the forthcoming TWSS episode #91, these are my picks for the winners so all gripes go to me, not Matt.

Third Place - Winner of DVD copy of "You" starring Melora Hardin.
"I think Jim and Pam should name their baby Travis because that is the artist of the song they listen to in season 2 when they swayed."
Jamie Kushner

Several listeners/readers sent in "Travis" but Jamie was first and so she gets the prize. As much as I love the "jokey" entries this sentimental suggestion would have been a great nod to a classic JAM scene from Season 2.

Second Place - Winner of book "The Office and Philosophy"
"Herbert Halpert.  Book it."
Brandon Petersen

Very, very "jokey" but I love this entry. Can you imagine the lines that could be delivered by Michael or Kevin if the JAM baby was named Herbert Halpert?

First Place - Winner of a $50 Amazon Gift Certificate
"My Idea for a name for baby Halpert - Mistake. The reasons are fairly odvious don't you think?"

Give credit to Shelly for understanding the mindset of the judges with this entry. Though I have to admit the baby stuff has not been overplayed this season I still stick by my guns in saying that it was too soon to have a baby. In life, you sometimes cannot plan for unforseen pregnancies. On TV, there is no such thing as an "unplanned pregnancy."  Here's hoping, in a way, that Cecilia becomes as much as an afterthought as Emma was on "Friends."

Others entries that were good:
"Jim and Pam pick an obscure biblical name Obadiah and add the middle name Juan. They could call him Obi-Juan!"
Zac Cross

"Perfect PB&J Baby name: "Smuckers"  [Cue the high-hat]"
Vic Shuttee

"This is Aaron from Laguna Hills, CA and my suggestion for the name is: Damien. I know it's simple, but I like the idea of it being a nice name that Jim and Pam could choose, and it would of course prompt Michael (along with others) to make some jokes about Jim and Pam's child being the son of satan. So those are my thoughts, simple but possible."
Aaron Neuwirth

We received a lot of "Michael" related entries. You didn't really think we were going to pick those, right?
