A three-month old howler monkey at the National Zoo needs your input on what his name should be.
The National Zoo is appealing to fans of their Facebook page for help in naming a new black howler monkey.
If you were to ask a Howler monkey what his or her name is, you might get this: "WHOOW HOWOO WHOOO WHOO!" That's why the zoo is asking you.
It's hosting a poll in which fans can vote for one of four names. The pool of names was chosen, according to the Zoo, because each name best reflects the new monkey's traits, personality and characteristics.
The suggested names include Sumaq, which means "beautiful'' in the Quechua language; Orejas, which means "ears'' in Spanish; Nando, which is short for Fernando and means "courageous''; and Loki, which is the Norse mythological god of mischief. As of this writing, Loki is winning by a significant margin, perhaps aided by the success of The Avengers movie, where the principal villain goes by that name.
The voting ends on Friday, three months after the baby's birth. The zoo plans to announce the winning name on Facebook.
