Descriptions:

Artemis (Artie) is the Goddess (god) of the hunt.

Genesis is for the beginning.

Ontario is for the lake falcons fly over and to remember the year Lake Ontario rose to some of its highest levels in recorded history.!

Pi is the ratio between circumference and radius of a circle. The circle is a symbol of soaring flight forever..

Saor is the Gaelic word for free.

Sequoyah is for the Cherokee who invented the written Cherokee language and/or for the great trees.

Sokol is falcon in polish.  These 2 sites can give you much information: http://scienceinpoland.pap.pl/en/news/news,391240,growing-population-of-polish-peregrine-falcons.html and http://peregrinus.pl/en/peregrine-falcon/157-peregrine-story-in-poland .

Survivor is for those that have been the victor and survived challenges in life - breasts cancer, other forms of cancer or disease, relationships, high school, college, jobs anything that life dishes out!.  

Teufel is for Little devil.

Welkin is a synonym for sky.

Three polls have been posted (male name, female name, gender-neutral name). The voting period ends Sunday 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.
