Name our Lesser Spotted Eagles

Post by Felis silvestris »

The female in Magnus' nest has laid her first egg. So far we only know that she wears a ring (672?) from Estonia and that she has got no official name so far.

It is time to look for a nice name. Out of respect for our Estonian hosts here, we usually choose Estonian names.

If you want to look yourself, here are a few pages to search for nice names:

that was me :whistling: but doesn't matter :D we are family, aren't we???

"Magi" I found in the internet, but obviously this was "fake news". So remains Marit as my proposal (or is the right spelling Maret?

The name is not restricted to start with an 'M', is it?

Siret is my favourite suggestion, to be replaced by Merle if it has to be 'M'.

I would say no, it is not restricted to the same letter as Magnus' name. After I few days we will vote and each name gets the same chance. We have many bird couples starting with the same letter, but we also had LSE "Tuuli" and "Remo" and "Eha" and "Koit" or WtE "Linda" and "Sulev".

Felice silvestris, the names of Magee and Marit suggested aquiline, not me. I just agreed with aquiline that these are suitable names!

I think Maia very pretty.

Otherwise I would follow Merle suggestion. :nod:

Put down your suggestions here.
