A San Diego couple whose one wish is to have a child of their own is asking for the public's help with an interesting twist.

Aubrey and Jill Martin are unable to have children, but they want to try surrogacy.

With the cost anywhere from $25,000 to six figures, the Martins decided to set up a GoFundMe account to help raise the necessary funds.

The Martins said the highest donors will be able to come up with the child's middle name.

"It'd be fun someday to share with our child where their middle names came from and know that it's because of these people that we're willing to put out some money that we were able to do this," said Jill Martin.

The couple said a $10,000 will get the first middle name, while $5,000 gets the second middle name.

The Martins said there is no limit to how many middle names the child could have.
