What would you name a turtle?

The National Aquarium, which has a nameless baby loggerhead turtle in its midst, wants to know.

The turtle has been at the aquarium since late November. It's scheduled to remain there (in the Coastal Beach exhibit) for a year, before being released into the wild.

Anyone with a prospective name (Shelley?) should go to aqua.org/loggerhead through Jan. 22 and suggest it. The museum staff will whittle the possible names (Sheldon?) down to four.

From Jan. 25-29, the public will be asked to vote for their favorite, with the winner being announced Feb. 1.

Kurt? Urkel? Tim?
