Name Your Child “Dragonborn”...Receive an Award?!

By Kyle Durant

February 22, 2011

Ever thought that you could get a reward for naming your adorable newborn a certain name? Well Bethesda is holding a promotion/contest for parents come this November 11, 2011 (Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s release date). Simply get lucky by having your baby born on November 11th and name the cute tyke Dovahkiin. Bethesda will then provide (with proof of birth info) the parents with an “unknown” reward.

If you are for some unorthodox reason contemplating this, Dovahkiin means “Dragonborn” in Skyrim’s alphabet. Though it is a cool name with a cool meaning behind it, this isn’t the 13th century anymore. Bethesda seems to realize that with their disclaimer reading, “Any reward for completing this quest will not ultimately justify the potential teasing our child could, and probably will, endure over its lifespan. Bethesda Softworks is not responsible for your parenting.”

Pretty much your above average gamer who plays games profusely and appreciates them even more. Been gaming since the NES but is in love with anything PlayStation. No I am not a typical fanboy...I appreciate each system for their strengths and recognize their weaknesses. I just love the PS brand. (Think along the lines as someone who likes to read but loves one author in particular). Ever since my time as #2 in the world at Resistance 2, I have taken video games much more seriously. Don't get me wrong, I am a laid back, fun guy to game with...but I always play to win.
