Naming The Gingerbread Man

So my cover designer and I have done a lot of bad things to that little gingerbread man who stars on the covers of The Christmas River books. I mean, the poor little guy has been stabbed, set on fire, put in a straight jacket (as if he was the crazy one...), roasted, run over by an RV, and most recently, zapped by an evil witch: 




"Oh nooooooooo!!!" (That's always what I imagine him saying.)

Now, all those things are bad. But perhaps the worst thing that I've done to him thus far is that I haven't given the poor little guy a name! How terrible! So in order to rectify that, I thought all of you could help me name him. Please comment below with your best name idea for The Gingerbread Man, and enter to win a $10 Amazon gift card and a digital copy of Magic in Christmas River, the latest Christmas River book. I'll choose the name I think fits him best and announce the winner Friday morning on my Facebook page and blog. 

Good luck and thanks for entering! Maybe once he has a name, I'll be less apt to do terrible things to him.

Then again...

  2. Sugar since it goes with Cinnamon and he seems to do anything to be on the cover of the books. He's sweet.

  4. Redheads are often called gingers. Rory is the name for a redheaded male so that's my suggestion.
