Voting is underway to choose names for the two eaglets recently hatched in a nest at Alcoa’s Davenport Works.

The first eaglet hatched Saturday afternoon, March 16, 2013.  The second was confirmed in the nest two days later.

Alcoa accepted name suggestions a week before the eaglets hatched.  They received more than 4,000 name suggestions, and used those suggestions helped create a list of names for which they’re accepting votes.

The possible names for the pair of eaglets are:  Pride and Joy; Alcoa and Legacy (to honor Alcoa’s 125th anniversary); Lindy and Amelia (for aviation pioneers Charles Lindbergh and Amelia Earhart); Peace and Harmony; Honor and Glory; Al and Coa; Charles and Julia (for the founders of Alcoa); Stars and Stripes; and Wilbur and Orville (for the Wright brothers).

You can vote as often as you like.  Voting ends at 11:59 p.m. April 5, 2013.
