Bethesda Launch 'Child Naming' Contest For Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Bethesda has revealed that they will be hosting a rather odd contest for their upcoming title, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It will involve those who're planning to have children towards the end of 2011.

In something of a semi-joke, Bethesda disclosed that parents who have a child born on the 11th of November, 2011 (Skyrim's release date) and who name their child "Dovahkiin", which means "Dragonborn" in Skyrim's dragon alphabet, could be in line to win a rather special reward - although they didn't disclose what it would be.

The disclaimer for the competition said "Any reward for completing this quest will not ultimately justify the potential teasing your child could - and probably will - endure over its lifespan. Bethesda Softworks is not responsible for your parenting."

It's worrying to think about how many people are contemplating this.
