NEW HAVEN, Conn., June 26 (UPI) -- A Connecticut couple said they decided to let Starbucks customers vote on names for their expected son when they were unable to settle on a moniker.

Jennifer James, 25, and Mark Dixon, 24, both of West Haven, said they decided to put the question to customers at the Starbucks they frequent in New Haven when they were unable to decide whether to name the boy, who is due to be born in September, Jackson or Logan, the New Haven Register reported Wednesday.

The couple said a winner was declared Tuesday.

"Logan -- by far. At least by 400 or 500," Dixon said.

They said Jackson will be the boy's middle name.

James and Dixon said they also received several write-in votes during the contest, including Obama, Lincoln, Jebediah and Webster.

The couple said they are keeping the scraps of paper used in the voting to present to Logan Jackson Dixon when he gets older.
