What’s in a Name?

Okay, how strange is this! Our friends at the Smithsonian National Zoo gave a mother anteater three choices for her baby’s name: Fausto, Demetrio, and Pablo. Each name was placed next to a flowerpot that had a tasty treat tucked underneath. Mama Anteater chose the pot labeled Pablo, the one hiding a hard-boiled egg.

I didn’t opt for the flowerpot method when naming my little guy. If I had, I’m sure he would have upended all three pots and gobbled down the treats. Then his name would now be Pablo Fausto Demetrio. Quite the mouthful.
