But Sandra Dee, What Will You Do If It’s A Girl?
Not since Grace Kelly, who needed a son to preserve the throne of Monaco, has anyone wished so hard for a baby son. If buying a blue layette, if selecting only names for a boy, if thinking only “boy” thoughts will do the trick, then, come this December we’ll all be welcoming a young man by the name of Jeffrey Darin.
Only when it comes to babies, wishes have just half a chance of coming true. Sandy just has to face it—she’s got exactly the same chances for a daughter as she has for a son.
And what if it is a girl? What’s wrong with having a girl? A delightful carbon copy of Sandra would be perfect. Bobby says that the more he thinks about having two Sandra’s around the Darin household, the more he likes it.
Meanwhile, since Sandy won’t think pink, Photoplay thinks Sandy’s friends should do it for her. After all, we wouldn’t want her to end up calling the baby “Hey You.”
So why not help Sandy pick a girl’s name. Just write the name you select on the coupon below, and send it along to us. Also, you might keep in mind that Sandy chose the name Jeffrey for her son because it sounds nice with Darin, and because they do not have any friends or relatives with that name.
We’ll carefully count every single name and send the most popular ones for a girl to Sandy—just in case.
