GoldenPalace spent $15,000 to name another child after the company
Monday 30th May 2005
With their latest eBay purchase, online casino GoldenPalace is well on their way to overtaking the name “Smith” in the telephone book. The casino spent $15,000 to name another child after the company.
The bouncing baby boy’s official name is GoldenPalace.com Silverman and he is the latest in a series of eccentric advertising campaigns by the casino. Other babies also share the casino’s name, as well as Tennessee resident Terri Illigan, who sold her naming rights on eBay for $15,199, and subsequently changed her name to GoldenPalace.com to help support her five children.
“You can expect more baby-naming in the future as I am sure other people will follow suit and be looking to auction off the naming rights to their children”, GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe said.
