Last summer we asked our Facebook fans to name our Monkey, and we picked our favorite of the many entries we received. Ever since then, Milton the Monkey's been a little big in his britches for being our only icon with a proper name. So this summer we turned to our Facebook fans again and asked them to name our Elephant!
We got more than 60 entries in just 3 days, and posted our 10 favorites for Facebook fans to vote:
Fans quickly gravitated to two names - Peanut and Pickles - and it was a nailbiter to the very end! When the polls closed at 4pm CST on Friday, Pickles was the winner by fewer than 5 votes. I have to admit that I had been rooting for Pickles since the beginning because of its origins - Jennifer Banks Harris submitted it "because that's what all the pregnant women perusing your site are craving!"
So, meet Pickles!!
