Welcome, Sekiu! Baby otter gets her name

Well, it’s official. The baby otter at the Seattle Aquarium has been named Sekiu by popular vote. Here’s the announcement from our friends at KING-TV.

“SEKIU!” by a waterslide victory capturing nearly ½ of the more than 14,000 votes” out of five name choices, declares spokesman Tim Kunihom.

For those of you not in the know, it is pronounced SEE-Q. And, it’s a place. A lovely place, out on the Olympic Peninsula, best known for its sport fishing. Very appropriate for a northern sea otter.

My vote was Shi Shi for its lovely alliteration. Maybe next time!
