This was a tough decision, and I really liked all the jewel names like amethyst, and alexandrite, but I tend to name all my animals people names because, to me, my animals are like little people. I purposely didn't give that hint in the beginning. So, what really appealed to me was using the prefix "pea" with another syllable to form a human name. Therefore, Cindy Sproles won with her "Peater."
So, I still need three more names using "pea" somewhere in the name and with it forming a human name.
Okay, so the contest is still on. Nah--I'm not wild about "Peabody." The "pea" can also be in the middle or end of the name, too.
I know: I'm fussy. But I'm going to have to be calling these birds by these names for a bunch of years. I need to like them.
Create away! Deadline is May 3, 2010. Thanks. Congrats to Cindy Sproles, too. Thanks, Cindy.
