Calling All Readers: Help Me Name My Pet Fern!


I brought a new friend home with me today. It’s a Boston fern (I think). A friend of a friend decided to dig one up out of the latter friend’s yard after hearing me talk about how I was thinking of getting a plant for my apartment. Now I have one, and I want your help.
I want to name my fern. So, here’s what you can do. In the comments for this post, suggest one name you would give this fern. Only one. I will only count the first name you give, so don’t name twelve or thirteen. Think of some clever, unusual, bizarre, or downright hilarious names, because I want it to be unique (although if you wanted to name it Bill, I would be fine with that, because it’s funny and dry).

Then, once the poll I have running on the left has ended, I’ll start up a new poll with a list of the names and let you all vote! Whichever name gets the most votes wins. Sounds easy enough, right?

So, have at it!

P.S.: In the event that there are too many names to put on one poll, I’ll run a series of polls in a semifinals sort of fashion and put the best choices in the final poll. Hopefully that won’t happen, but just in case.
