Descriptions:

Delaney is an Irish name and means an angel from heaven.

Denali means Great One in Indian (Sanskrit).  It is also the name of the national park surrounding Mt. McKinley in Alaska.  Peregrines are fast and fierce hunters and defenders of their territory, yet are capable of using their sharp beaks and talons to gently turn eggs and move among eyases without harming them.  Pair bonding at the beginning and end of each season insures the continued existence of this great predator.

Earhardt is in honor of the aviatrix. Flying free!

Genesee is for the river and valley over which (s)he will first soar.  Also, the Times Square Building was once the home of the Genesee Trust Company. The  Genesee River flows through the heart of Rochester. Flowing northward from PA through New York, it is a tributary of Lake Ontario. It was seen in the early days to be a hydropower bonanza, providing original power to the 19th century mills and still provides hydroelectric power for downtown Rochester.  The Genesee is also known for its beautiful and powerful waterfalls. High Falls is a famous part of the Genesee and is where many young Falcons have trained to fly before leaving Rochester.

Iroquois pays homage to the Confederation of Indian tribes that once populated New York State. Names of various individual tribes have been used in the past but never the name Iroquois to represent the entire nation!

Razon is Spanish for reason, need, cause, purpose. All of these apply to the protection of our local falcon population.

Shea is an Irish surname transferred to unisex forename use, from an Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Séaghdha ("descendant of Séaghdha"), possibly meaning "hawk-like."

Sorcha is an old Irish name means "shining bright ". Pronounced Sor-va.

Spirit is free from commotion and disturbance; calm, peaceful and quiet. It's also from the Spirit of St. Louis, Charles Lindbergh's plane for the first solo crossing of the Atlantic.

Taurus because the falcon was born in the sign of Taurus.                                                                  

Thunder is for a thunder storm.

Three polls have been posted (male name, female name, gender-neutral name). The voting period ends Monday night at 11:59 PM EDT.

One of this year's eyases will be given either an appropriate gender-specific name or a gender-neutral name, whichever receives the most votes. In case of a tie, the number of times each of the 2 names was submitted will be used as a tie breaker. If that is a tie too, a coin will be flipped.
