One of The First NYC Human Babies of 2013 was born in the slope

We are reporting that Gothamist is reporting that the Daily News is reporting that a live human child was born at Methodist Hospital at 12:54 a.m. on January 1, and that this was one of the first babies to be pushed out of a uterus anywhere in the five boroughs in 2013.  The parents are Jungmin Oh and Benjamin Brown, who live in Park Slope, and the baby looks healthy and the mother looks healthy and the father looks like he has a healthy beard and everything is really awesome.  Congratulations!

Though this baby was born 54 minutes into the new year, I bet the parents were aiming to have it as close to midnight as possible.  I mean, isn't it the case that the first baby born usually gets a lot of precious gifts and freebies?  Does New York City do that?  I thought every place did that.  If that's the case, then you'd think that people would be trying harder to pop out their children at the precise moment that the ball drops.  Here's a helpful hint for next year:  my crazy Aunt Cynthia (who's got an arterial flow problem and may be having a stroke at any given moment so take this for what it's worth) swears that if you eat a sack of White Castle sliders, it will induce labor.  I actually believe this to be true, because I've eaten White Castle and felt like I was gonna have a baby.  And I'm a dude.

So, what should they name the baby?  Any suggestions?
