Man Trades Baby's Name For $100 Gas Card

Someday, when a boy named DIXON AND WILLOUGHBY PARTIN asks how he got his 24-letter name, he'll learn it came with a hundred bucks worth of gasoline.
DAVID PARTIN of ORLANDO offered the right to name his unborn son to COX Classic Rock WHTQ, which had offered $100 worth of free gas to the listener with the most interesting item to trade. Morning hosts RICHARD DIXON and J. WILLOUGHBY took PARTIN's deal.
When the baby is born this winter, he will be named DIXON AND WILLOUGHBY PARTIN, with the "and" included.
PARTIN's girlfriend, SAMANTHA BAILEY, tells the ORLANDO SENTINEL that at least he will have an interesting story about how he got his name.
DIXON and WILLOUGHBY plan to hand over the gas card when they see the birth certificate.
