Help name our dolphin calf

The presidential election has come and gone, but the National Aquarium still needs your vote! The newest addition to the dolphin colony is now 3 months old and we are calling on the public to choose her name. Aquarium trainers and voluteers have narrowed the choices to 5 names that relate to Maryland, and fit well with the young calf’s developing personality:momcalf-blog

Bayley – after her mother, Chesapeake, and the Bay
Calli – after Callinectes, the genus of the blue crab, and Cal Ripken
Charm – because she lives in Charm City
Hanna – after the Susquehanna River
Sassafras – after the Sassafras River

Through a partnership with WBAL-TV, you can vote for your choice on, or by texting the letter “A” for Bayley, “B” for Calli, “C” for Charm, “D” for Hanna, or “E” for Sassafras to 88509. (standard text messaging rates apply)

Voting will close at 11:59 pm on November 20. The winning name will be announced on Saturday, November 22 during a live broadcast on WBAL-TV from the dolphin pools!
