Readers respond: What should the SLU mammoth be named?

On Friday afternoon, the 8½-foot mammoth tusk found in the South Lake Union neighborhood was lifted and trucked to the Burke Museum. We like to personalize things like that — we named our giant tunnel-boring machine Bertha, after all. Here’s a collection of some of your ideas for what to call the mammoth that experts believe was trundling around the neighborhood 22,000 – 60,000 years ago. If you want to share your own, send them to us on Twitter (@seattletimes) or leave them in the comments.
