Descriptions:

Apollo is a half-brother of Mercury.

Bran was a Celtic God of Health. Also known as Bran The Blessed..

Chase refers to a hunter.
 
Elsu is is a Native American name that means falcon flying.
 
Gawain means uncertain, from the Latin form Walganus used by the 12th-century chronicler Geoffrey of Monmouth. This was the name of a nephew of King Arthur and one of the Knights of the Round Table in
Arthurian legend. He can be identified with the earlier Welsh hero Gwalchmei, and it is likely that the name derives from GWALCHMEI. Alternatively it may have a different Celtic or even a Germanic origin. Gawain was a popular hero in medieval stories such as the 14th-century romantic poem 'Sir Gawain and the Green Knight'..

Glenn is in honor of John Glenn, United States Marine Corps aviator, astronaut, engineer and United States Senator from Ohio. John Glenn was the first American to orbit the earth, and the oldest person to fly in space.  He passed away on December 8, 2016, at the age of 95.

Letchworth is for William Pryor Letchworth, instrumental in creating one of the nation's most beautiful parks and a haven for local wildlife!

Theron is Greek for Hunter.

Tobias is a Greek version of the Hebrew name "Toviyah" which means, the goodness of God.

Uncas was a sachem of the Mohegan tribe in Connecticut and considered to be one of the most influential Native American leaders in colonial New England. (Also title character from Last of the Mohicans.)

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.
