Syracuse, NY — There’s a baby penguin at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo at Burnet Park and the Penguin Post has learned that he needs a name. If you’ve got an idea for one, you’ve got until May 20 to send your suggestion to the zoo. For the second time in two years, the zoo is offering the public a chance to name a penguin. The firstborn of this year’s nine penguin hatchlings is a male, said zoo spokeswoman Lorrell Walter.Same penguin, displaying dancing ability.Last year, the zoo got 379 suggestions. Already on Tuesday, hours after the contest had been announced, entries were flooding into the zoo, Walter said. Last year, the winning name came from Ashley Redhead of Bridgeport. The 15-year-old suggested “Marisol,” a combination of Spanish words that translates to “sunny sea,” Walter said. Walter said contestants would do well to consider a Spanish name again this year. The nine new Humboldt penguins are native to Spanish-speaking Chile and Peru. All the Humboldts born at the zoo have Spanish, or Latin-derived names, said Walter. There’s a Jake, but he – and the name – came from another zoo. “If people want a shot at winning,” Walter said, “they really should make sure it has a Latin influence.” Plus, she said, “be a little creative.” Suggestions can be e-mailed to email@example.com. They’ll be whittled to five by a zoo committee. Those five will be posted online for voting from May 24 to May 31. A winner will be announced at the June 3 and the winner will be named the adoptive parent of the penguin for a year and receive a VIP tour of the zoo.
