Submissions are open online through Jan. 6, or when entries hit 20,000, whichever comes first. The only rules: Submissions are limited to one per person and names max out at 50 characters.
Staff at the Department of Streets and Sanitation will choose 50 finalists, with the public voting on the winners Jan. 15-31.
