No joke--BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse wants you to name your child Quinoa.

Ahead of two new arrivals to its menu this summer, the Roasted Chicken with Spinach Quinoa Bowl and Roasted Salmon Quinoa Bowl, BJ's is asking its expecting customers to think of them instead of the possible humiliation your child may face for the rest of his or her life.

Although not as popular as Gwyneth Paltrow's daughter's name, Apple; BJ's wants you to name your baby Quinoa, and prove it, for a chance to win $10,000 worth of food at the restaurant.

"We are so excited to introduce these amazing new Quinoa Bowls that we wanted to do something big, maybe even a little crazy," said Kevin Mayer, executive vice president and chief marketing officer at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse. "At the end of the day, we think Quinoa could be a great baby name," said Mayer. "And who knows? Maybe it will start a trend."

Don't want to ruin your child's life? No problem! You can still get a deal. Change your first name on Twitter to Quinoa from now until July 6th to receive a coupon to BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse.
