NAMES

It’s getting to that time of the season.  And, although it is not possible to really tell them apart at this stage (if ever, if they are same gender), it’s a tradition to give them names.  It was decided to call them after our planets.    The two most popular names will be used.  You have until next Monday to vote.

Here are the planet names:

Mercury, Venus, Earth/Gaia, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune and I think we can allow Pluto, too as a minor planet.

1 Mercury = god of commerce, travel and thievery (Roman)

2 Venus = Roman goddess of love and beauty

3 Earth (or Gaia) = old English/Germanic

4 Jupiter = King of the Gods (Roman)

5 Mars = Roman god of war

6 Saturn = Roman god of agriculture

7 Uranus = ancient Roman deity of the Heavens

8 Neptune = Roman god of the sea

9 Pluto (furthest from the sun) = Roman god of the underworld.

Use the comments section below for your vote.   I don’t think it matters what name ends up with what gender (and we can always swap later if necessary!).

And Xavier has been a very good father, not just providing food, but also taking over feeding duties to let Diamond have a good fly.   He did this twice this afternoon
