What’s in a name? Prizes, for one thing! VOTE for your favorite moniker and grant the submittor a guided tour of the new paleo hall

May 14, 2012

You’ve made your nominations, and the academy has deliberated. We even put the top five names you guys submitted for our new T-Rex Trying mascot in crisp ecru envelopes and everything. We hired a calligrapher and borrowed ball gowns! I’ve gotten carried away, haven’t I?

T-Rex Trying to catch a butterfly!

Well this much is true: We’ve selected our favorite five name suggestions, and now it’s up to you to pick the winner.

Our favorite picks were *drumroll please*:

  • Tex 
  • Huey 
  • Tiny
  • Amigo
  • Sam

Whether the names were inspired by our city, our state or our sense of irony, we loved the outpouring of responses we received. So don’t stop now! Log onto the HMNS Facebook page and vote for your favorite; the winner will get a guided tour for four of the new Hall of Paleontology.
