Bethesda to Give Away Games for Life to First Person to Name Child “Dovahkiin” on 11/11/11

“Skyrim Day,” which is November 11th, 2011, is the day in which Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is slated to be released. To celebrate this, Skyrim developer Bethesda has announced a rather peculiar contest.

If you (or your misses, depending on your gender) give birth to a child on November 11th, 2011 and name him “Dovahkiin,” Bethesda will reward you with a Steam key that will give you, your spouse and your sure-to-be-ridiculed child access to every Bethesda/ZeniMax game ever. That includes any game to come out in the future.

From the Bethesda Blog:

If anyone is seriously considering this, weve got a few ideas in mind for a collection of quest rewards. Hows this for a shower gift: a Steam key that will grant you, and presumably Dovahkiin him/herself, every ZeniMax/Bethesda game past, present and future for life. Once your child eventually achieves cognition and grows old enough to play intense video games we think it will agree that this key blows away a pink pleated onesie. As for the rest of the loot, well leave it as a surprise.

As is pointed out on Bethesda’s Blog, if you want a chance to win you’ll need to get started right about now. So, what say you? Is giving your child a goofy name worth a lifetime supply of free games?
