I'm awaiting the imminent arrival of my brother. Anxiously. I have never met him but got in contact with my birth family last year after wondering for 67 years what it would be like to know people I was genetically related to. First person to guess his first name wins.
edit: one guess per day

    That's pretty cool. I found out a few years ago I have three sisters that I didn't know about when I got a friend request on facebook.

    Wait, wow. Congrats. I firmly believe in family and the discovering who we are by knowing our family history is key to being our best selfs.

    I'll pass on the contest...just give your brother the deepest best and longest hug for me. Never having, but always wanting a brother, I'd be curious about the meetup story (if you're so inclined to share). 

    Wow, amazing....
    The secret word is cigars!

    My guess is Mohammed. It's the most popular name in the world so odds are in my favor

    Since it's a new day, and I didn't win with Howard, I'm guess Harold.

    first of all, sharing a genome with others is strange, it's frigin eerie how similar yet different we are, now I'm wondering about my other brothers, three of them, and sisters, two of them, but that's for another day and perhaps another contest. No one guessed correctly yet, though I do like Goldrat, Wylaff.
