Name Erica's Calf

Tue, 2010-09-21 15:57 by cmoss

In both the August and September newsletters I reported on Erica’s calf who was born in March. He was the first, and so far only, calf to be born to the EB (Echo’s) family since the terrible drought of 2009.

I am pleased that this little calf is doing well. I announced in the September newsletter that I’m looking for a name for him and I thought you might help me find one. We’ve used almost every “E” name in the Names for Babies books, so it will have to be an unusual name. For each donation of $10 or more you can submit a name. Once I get a good number I will chose the winner who will then receive a full history of the family, a current family tree and a photo of the calf. You can make the donation through Click & Pledge here on the website and submit names through the visitors’ forum or by writing to info©elephanttrust.org.

Eamnonn or Eamon, from the Gaelic, meaning "Protector" or Edan, meaning "little firey one".

I visited Amboseli for a week beginning on March 9, 2010 and was so happy to see the "lake" that was there. I paid my respects to Echo and then saw some of the newborns...a Grant's Gazelle had just been born moments before my vehicle approached, there were many predators with newborns (and I wondered whether they would get into trouble raiding Maasai manyattas as the zebra, wilderbeest, and buffalo were almost all wiped out in the drought). I was amazed to see several very young eles...and wondered how they could have made it in utero during the drought. What a heartening sight.

Thank you, Cynthia, Soila, Norah, Katito and staff...for all your hard and heartbreaking work over the years....

Yes, I rechecked the list of used E names and found that two of my names had already been used. I can't think of any other names at the moment so I will just leave it at those other 3 names. Thanks for informing me.

Cynthia,

I made a $100 donation on Monday, so here are a few names to consider...Euphoria, Ernestine, Esai, Eucalyptus, Eloquent, Elsa or Elsie (I saw Else on list of already used names and am not sure if this may be a typo), and Eternity...

This is fun...I hope you are amassing a good list of potentials!

Best Regards,

Else is German

Thu, 2010-10-21 14:40 by Hans

Else is a somewhat old-fashioned, but still perfectly correct German female name.

Perhaps the most well-known woman with this first name was Else Lasker-Schüler, a jewish German.

One more suggestion for Erica's calf's name...

Thu, 2010-10-21 01:42 by Babar

Cynthia,

I am responding to my own previous eMail with name suggestions, just now realizing we are looking for a name for a precious boy (considering i had a mix of male and female names above, LOL)...How about Ezekiel?

Best Regards,

Babar
