Last week we told you about a mom in Los Angeles who is letting folks on the Internet name her baby in exchange for $5,000.

Now a couple in Texas is raffling off their baby's middle name to raise money for the Fort Worth Pregnancy Center, according to this Fox report.

Drew and Tanya Myers are due with their second child in August. They know it's a girl and have already picked out her first name, Ily, pronouced (eye-lee). It is an abbreviation for "I love you." They have decided their daughter's middle name will be determined by the raffle.

The raffle costs $25 per entry. The winner will be chosen on July 31.

Read why this couple chose to raffle off their daughter's name, the rules you must follow (no names beginning with a "b" please) and how you can participate, in this blog entry written by Drew Myers.

Want to know Drew's reaction to the video above? Here's his tweet:

What do you think of the raffle?
