Vote for your favorite whale name at Greenpeace.

Is That Mr. Splashy Pants?

If you've ever wanted the chance to name a wild animal, your time has come! Greenpeace is sponsoring a whale naming competition for the humpbacks traveling on the Great Whale Trail. The contest started with over 11,000 submissions but has been whittled down to 30 possible suggested names including, as you probably guessed, Mr. Splashy Pants.

Now, this is where you come in. Pick your top fave from choices like Talei (meaning 'special or rare' in Fijian), Veikko (meaning 'brother or a good friend' in Finnish), and other equally interesting and melodic names. You can only vote once but spread the word – the deadline is Dec. 7.
