Minister for Climate Change and the Environment, Frank Sartor, today announced that Tarongaâ€™s new elephant calf will be named Pathi Harn (pronounced â€˜par tea harnâ€™).
â€œThe people of NSW and zoo keepers have chosen Pathi Harn – the Thai word for miracle – as the new name for Mr Shuffles,â€ Mr Sartor said.
The little darling has been called a miracle since his birth, as zoo vets had given up hope that he would be born alive after they ceased to detect signs of life.
Anyway, during an IRC conversation earlier today Mary noted that we really don’t have a name for our beloved commenters:
We figure, what the heck, why not let you name yourselves. In a similar fashion to how the adorable bundle of ubercute above was named, we’ll take ideas and poll the suggestions we like most in a future thread.
So, Open Threaders: What do you, our geekfeminist.org community, wish to be nicknamed?
