What's my name?


What's my name?

Well for those of you who have been following along on Facebook, you'll know that I'm currently working on my new Children's Book.  Although I'm not sharing any other story details right now, I am sharing that the main character is a seagull.  I ran a mini call for name suggestions, to which 179 of you responded!  I'm loving all the ideas, and I have picked one of the names for him (I will use this name in the book along with a credit given to the person who suggested it.) 
But, 
before I announce the name, I thought it would be fun to have a little competition. 
The winner of this competition (I'm hoping for 5 of you) will win a signed Limited Edition print of the seagull shown above.  He is the initial sketch for the main character.
So, before you start to leave your comments, here are a couple of clues.

The seagull is a boy

His name starts with S

To enter, leave your name suggestion as a comment.  The closest ones (spelling differences will be allowed) will be put into a hat and I'll draw out 5 winners.
Simples!

Rachelle x

I'll announce the 5 winners along with the name at midnight Friday 28th March (GMT)

Sweet image. Name for seagull would be Siggy.

al burton said...

See, normally I would have gone with SS as initials but seeing as I'm feeling a bit lonely and slightly narcissistic, I'm going to have to go with 'Burt' (as in Burt Lancaster, Lancaster as in bomber) Burt as in Burton lol xxx
