Hello, Emilio. Calgary’s penguin chick finally has a name

You can call him Emilio. The Calgary Zoo‘s two-month-old Humboldt penguin chick now has a name.

“It’s official! YOU voted, and the name of our new Humboldt chick is EMILIO! We love it. Thanks zoo fans for the help!” the facility announced on Facebook.


The zoo’s naming contest suggested Emilio, Lorenzo and Alejandro as options.

So, sorry Lorenzo Lamas fans. Emilio Estevez is where it’s at.
