The Andie Summers Show

Jeff’s Maybe Baby!! Jeff Kurkjian’s wife, Emily, is pregnant with their first baby and is due on August 4th. In preparation of all of this going down, The Andie Summers Show decided they wanted to help Jeff really get ready for this commitment. He had no idea that this was happening! Not one bit.

We paired up with Collegium Charter School to get a baby for Jeff to have to father.  No, not a real baby, but actually a toy baby they use to teach the students about becoming parents.

Every Baby Needs A Name Even Jeff’s Maybe Baby

Even though this isn’t Jeff’s actual baby (that one will be called McKinley of course) we still need to name the sweet baby Jeff is going to be fathering for the next 48 hours.

If you have been following our show, you know that Jeff has always wanted to name all of his children after presidents. The baby due on August 4th, McKinley Hope Kurkjian, named after the 25th President of the United States, William McKinley.

Hopefully Jeff’s baby is a bit cuter than this man here…

What Should We Name Jeff’s Fake Baby?

This is his MAYBE baby, not his actual baby but that doesn’t mean he or she shouldn’t have a name right? And the best part about all of these amazing names is that most of them could work for either a baby boy or a baby girl, very much gender neutral for the MAYBE baby.

Listen to Jeff’s full introduction to his Maybe Baby

So we have come up with ten options for the amazing XTU Nation to vote on. All of these were part of Jeff’s original list of potential presidential baby names, you can see the whole list here. Check out these ten, then vote for your favorite one!


  • Polky (James K. Polk)

    Let’s learn about the 11th President of the United States from

    “Often referred to as the first “dark horse” President, James K. Polk was the last of the Jacksonians to sit in the White House, and the last strong President until the Civil War.”

  • Uly (Ulysses S. Grant)

    This is pronounced OOO-LEE. Ulysses S. Grant was the 18th President of the United States, more according to PBS.

    For much of his life, Ulysses S. Grant failed at every occupation he tried. But in the United States Army, his remarkable talents as a soldier and leader saved his country from falling apart.”

  • Filly (Millard Fillmore)

    This kind of has a Philly connection (cause it sounds like Philly). Millard Fillmore was the 13 President of the United States. Here’s more from

    “Millard Fillmore was the last President not to be affiliated with either the Democratic or Republican parties.”

  • Frankie (Franklin Pierce)

    We was the 14th President of the United States, just two before the famed Abraham Lincoln. Here’s a fun fact about him from

    “He was the only president to keep his entire cabinet in place for the full four year term… the only president to memorize his inauguration speech.”

  • Ford (Gerald Ford)

    Gotta love Ford trucks so why not name the maybe baby after the 38th President of the United States of America. After Nixon resigned, he became the president.



  • Donnie (Donald Trump)

    He was the 45th President of the United States (and possibly running to the be the 47th as well). Obviously, this name strikes crazy resemblance to Donnie, the producer of The Andie Summers Show. Did he add this on purpose?

  • Andie (Andrew Jackson)

    Wait a minute, did Andie pick this one??? Andrew Jackson was the 7th President of the United States of America. Here’s more from

    “More nearly than any of his predecessors, Andrew Jackson was elected by popular vote; as President he sought to act as the direct representative of the common man.”
