happiness … for me and for you

is a new penguin

introducing... ping.

But (s)he needs a name. And a gender. I’ve been tending toward he since PG is most definitely a Girl, but since chicks can’t really talk much, I’m not sure if this one is a boy or a girl, yet. In my Ravelry notebook this project is titled “Omega ‘double-oh-one'” as it’s the first one I’ve made with this Omega Nylon Thread… and while that has a fun ring when I say it and the Omega.001 is a nice entry in my book, I’ve been informed with very strongly with sharp beak pecks (in the two broken needles it took to get the feet on) that name is not to remain.

So, please help me name this wee one. You have until 11:59:59pm (aka 23:59:59) Eastern Time on Tuesday 22nd September to submit your vote. One entry per individual please. I may look the other way if children or pets or your own little stuffed wee ones are involved in alternate entries.

In your entries please also list your favourite animal and if you like it best in traditional/natural colouring or “punk” (and what colour punk).

Winner better not hold their breath, but I’ll see what I can do.

  1. Hmmm. I guess Chickie wouldn’t likely go over well either, for all that a (Canadian, as it happens – not sure if it’s relevant) friend of mine calls her kids “Chickie” as a pet name.

    I’ll see if any of my kids has useful suggestions.

  2. Percival.
    My favorite animals are beavers and red fox. Blue heron, too…

    What a cutie!

  3. For some reason the name “Chirp” comes to mind. At least that is what it says to me.

    Also, purple + sheep = awesome

  4. Puffin (because she’s not one).

  5. Pablo…a boy. :)

    And I am most fond of dragonflies, in any range of their naturally occurring colors (blue, silver, red, gold…).
