Once the final list of suggested names has been composed, three polls will be set up on the Forum -- one each for male, female, and gender-neutral names. Forum members will vote for their favorite name in each poll. One of the three the eyases will be given the winning name from either the appropriate gender-specific poll or the gender-neutral poll, depending on which winner receives the most votes. For example:

The winner of the male name poll receives 30 votes.
The winner of the female name poll receives 20 votes.
The winner of the gender-neutral name poll receives 25 votes.

In this scenario, if the eyas is determined to be a male, it will receive the winning male name because it received more votes (30) than the gender-neutral name (25). However, if it is determined to be a female, it will receive the winning gender-neutral name because it received more votes than the female name (20).

Note that only Forum members can vote, and they must be logged in to vote. If you are a Forum member and don't remember your password, use this link to reset it:

A questionnaire will be sent to the email address you supply during registration. You must reply to this email in order to have your membership approved. Even if your answer to every question is "None of your %@#& business," you must reply, or your membership cannot be approved.

The other two eyases are being named by parties whose identities will be revealed when the names of the eyases are announced.

Oh no!  scared blue Although I thought I read the directions carefully, I think I made a mistake by submitting 2 forms, the first one for male / female and a second for gender-neutral. Both forms were accepted but if only one form counts, please delete my second form for gender-neutral name. Sorry.

The name submission period is over. We received 90 names!

The Naming Committee is in the process of evaluating all name submissions. Once completed, three polls (male, female, neutral) will be set up on the Forum, and Forum members will have a chance to vote for their favorites. The winners will be announced after the polls close, and a 2013 eyas will be given one of the winning names based on its gender.

For examples of how the polls will appear, take a look at last year's results.
