Descriptions:

Admiral a strong navigator, which a falcon needs to be in the sky.

Apollo was the Greek god of the sun, light, music, prophecy, and healing.  Falcons use the rays of the sun to guide them. Our new falcons are also part of a healing population.

Balder was Norse god of purity and light
 
Frederick for our famous resident Frederick Douglass who fought for civil rights and freedom for all!
 
Hermes was the ancient Greek god of trade, wealth, luck, fertility, animal husbandry, sleep, language, thieves, and travel. One of the cleverest and most mischievous of the Olympian gods, he was also their herald and messenger.

Montu was a widely revered falcon god of war in ancient Egypt. In Egyptian art he is depicted as a falcon headed man with his head surmounted by the solar disk and two feathers with the falcon as a symbol of sky.

Osiris was the Egyptian god of life, death, and rebirth.

River is for the rivers and creeks in the Rochester area.

Sirius is a binary star and the brightest star in the night sky. Being such a visible heavenly body, it has been the object of wonder and veneration to ancient peoples throughout human history..

Zeus from a root meaning "shine" or "sky" was the highest Greek god. Zeus ruled over the earth and humankind from atop Mount Olympus. He was very powerful and majestic.

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