We have a WINNER....

We have finally give the witch a name. The winner is......wait, wait, wait. Let me explain the scientific strategy that went into this.


First of all, we had 53 names to choose from with only a couple of duplications. But that was too many for Hut to handle by himself, so I thought I'd give him a hand. It was so overwhelming that we had to call in reenforcements. Wade and his girlfriend, Erin, came by to help us( we stayed up late to make sure everyone got into the competition, besides, the World Series was on.....Go Phillies). Needless to say, when they saw all the names, they looked like deers caught in the headlights. Our initial plan was to cut the list down to 10 names, put them in hat (or a plastic container, anyways) and pull the name. No matter how hard we tried, we could only cut it to 15. So 15 names went into the hat.

There were really great names. Thank you everyone that entered. I really enjoyed all the comments. Gary, you had the most traditional names. Sue, I loved your unique names and the definitions for them. That was great. Some of you guys gave me a headache just reading them, because I could tell you put alot of thought into them, like Hermoine Elizabeth Gingerbrick, or Penelope Gonagetcha Witcharini. And I have got to tell you, Cecile, that if we were picking just by the name we liked the best (and I tried to get them to change the rules, but no luck), Cole would have won because we all loved Tissy.

Oh but I have gotten off track here. I'm sure you guys are pulling your hair out right now wanting to know who won. Sorry, I tend to ramble on when I'm tired, nervous, excited...you get the picture. Anyways, meet the new witch on the block........

WITCH HAZEL.

Yes, that's right. I know we had a couple of Hazel's out there, but someone put the Witch in front of it...and since she's an witch and Witch Hazel is a natural remedy....I think it's kind of appropriate.

Okay, Okay, I don't want you all to have to go back through all the names on the blog to find out how submitted this name. It was ..........

Cecile!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations. And thanks again everyone for playing along. I hope you had as much fun as I did.
