You are talking to Peter about Johnny’s mother, who had to be rushed to the hospital in order to give birth...

...to her third child a week before you and Peter became friends with each other. You tell Peter that while some people waited for the birth in the hospital, Sandra, Johnny’s mother’s husband’s sister, discussed with other relatives what name they should give the newborn. The first child was named April and the second child was named May. After a few minutes, they decided on the third child’s name? 

What name was the newborn given?

Yes, Nolton, I think It was stupid for me to say it was the simplest puzzle because when I came across this one first time, my answer was "June" and I thought that was a very easy puzzle, the simplest one but Naa, I was wrong :) But later, I knew it was Johny who was born:) So, Yes, you are right that the puzzle that doesn't puzzle us, may not necessarily be the same for others.

Sure, I'll volunteer. 
1) Johnny's mom  --> Johnny is one of the kids of the mom
2) third child --> there are 3 kids total
3) one child April
4) one child May

-----> 3th child = newborn = Johnny

Simple logic. :)

That was the simplest and a old puzzle Nilton! Katarina got the answer:) 

By the way, the name Johny reminded me of a rhyme--

Johny, Johny--Yes,Papa

Eating sugar? No, Papa

Open your mouth-- Ha ha ha :)
