For those still following the saga of April the giraffe and her new calf … you have until April 30th to help choose a name for the calf. After several weeks of preliminary submissions/voting, the top ten names, in alphabetical order, are Allysa’s Choice, Apollo, Geoffrey, Gio, Harpur, Noah, Ollie, Patch, Patches, and Unity. You can vote at nameaprilscalf.com. Votes are $1 each with a minimum of 5.
Allysa’s Choice, by the way, is not a name. It is a vote to let Allysa, one of April’s handlers, name the calf. That would get my votes, given her obvious affection for April and the many, many hours she has devoted to April’s care and welfare.
