"You guys wanna know a secret? I'm going with one of the names SportsCenter suggested."

If you haven't heard by now, Saints QB and reigning Super Bowl Champion Drew Brees (@drewbrees) has turned to his almost 275,000 Twitter followers for help with naming his next child. In fact, here's the exact Tweet:

My wife is due any day now with baby boy #2. We have a few names picked out but haven't decided yet. Looking for "b" names. Suggestions?

He would later explain that he and his wife are looking for "uncommon" names. The response has apparently been overwhelming for the Brees family, as indicated by his most recent Tweet:

WOW. I had no idea this many people would respond. We loved everyone's suggestions and are getting close. Will keep you posted.

Okay, so the rest of the world has thrown in their two cents. The rest of the world EXCEPT for your friends at SportsCenter, that is. Although we think it's great that his fans have given the Brees family plenty of names to ponder, we're pretty confident that baby boy #2's name will come from our handy dandy list of obscure, albeit well-themed, "B" names. Here ya go, Drew:


Feeling a little nautical? We hope this name sticks with you as you set sail on your oceanic adventures (it beats our whale-related suggestion, Baleen).


If you like classic TV, then you'll love this "I Love Lucy"/Desi Arnaz-themed name.


Any fan of the Flintstones would love for their son to have this name. The downside is that the boy might need to invest in a lot of spare appliances.


Who doesn't enjoy a little slapstick? Imagine the fun you're son would have at school during roll call. We're sure he'll love you for it.


We think this name would be a perfect homage to the fans who enjoy this tailgating food staple.


He'd have the coolest self-introduction ever.


We're thinking NFL quarterback superstar hybrid, here -- Tom Brady and Drew Brees. All but guaranteed to marry a supermodel AND win a few Super Bowls.


We're thinking an ode to Ludwig van. Not so much the movies about that troublesome St. Bernard (sorry, Charles Grodin).


Perfect name if you're a fan of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs". Or just really funny and ironic if your son turns out to be boisterous.


You play for New Orleans. You're in Louisiana. This name makes perfect sense.

There you have it, Mr. Brees. We look forward to reading your next Tweet, declaring your son's aforementioned name. You're welcome.
