Help Me Name Frontier's Latest Tails

Thu Sep 29, 2005 7:33 am

Frontier's fourth employee Name the Tails contest is under way. My previous names have never been chosen. I could use some suggestions. The conest ends on October 4. I'll give you full credit when the results are posted.

These are the three tails.

The name along with a picture of the animal on the tail is displayed prominently on a poster just inside the aircraft entry door.

I'm still looking for an appropriate animal for "Mariner." I don't think these 3 look like a Mariner. I'm waiting on a flamingo or pelican.

Don't pick any of these:

Airbus A319
901 N901FR gray wolf "Wally"
902 N902FR wood duck "Woody"
903 N903FR orca "Ozzy"
904 N904FR trumpeter swan "Grace"
905 N905FR seal "Sherman"
906 N906FR pronghorn "Andy"
907 N907FR mule deer "Mel"
908 N908FR great blue heron "Holly"
909 N909FR canada goose "Lucy"
910 N910FR cougar "Sal"
912 N912FR red fox pup "Trixie"
913 N913FR hummingbird "Hamilton"
914 N914FR great egret "Stretch"
915 N915FR mustang "Sally"
916 N916FR mallard "O'Malley"
917 N917FR snowy owl "Doc"
918 N918FR white-tailed deer "Jake"
919 N919FR ocelot "Lance"
920 N920FR coyote "Carl"
921 N921FR mountain goat "Fritz"
922 N922FR red fox "Foxy"
923 N923FR raccoon "Rudy"
924 N924FR polar bear cubs "Klondike and Snow"
925 N925FR Dall's sheep "Dale"
926 N926FR black-tailed deer fawn "Domino"
927 N927FR bottle-nosed dolphin "Flip"
928 N928FR bobcat "Hank"
929 N929FR lynx "Larry"
930 N930FR cougar and cub "Lola and Max"
931 N931FR black bear cub "Jo-Jo"
932 N932FR bald eagle "Sarge"
933 N933FR ferruginous hawk "Sebastian"
934 N934FR lynx kitten "L.J."
935 N935FR sea otter "Hector"
936 N936FR walrus "Earl"
937 N937FR blue crowned conure "Carmen"
938 N938FR arctic fox "Misty"
939 N939FR emperor penguins "Jim, Joe, Jay, and Gary"
940 N940FR snowshoe hare "Jack"

Airbus A318
801 N801FR grizzly bear "Grizwald"
802 N802FR elk "Montana"
803 N803FR rabbit "Stu"
804 N804FR red fox pups "Mo and Jo"
805 N805FR great gray owl "Ollie"
806 N806FR American bison "Humphrey"
807 N807FR cougar "Charlie"

There's a great article about Frontier in the latest issue (No.95) of Airliners magazine.

Thanks for your help!

OK how about:
Gray Wolf - Fang (to commemorate Jack London's Book)
Big Horn - Horatio (for Horatio Hornblower)
Deer Fawn - Fawn sounds nice

edit-oops forgot Jack was already in use

Quoting King (Thread starter):
937 N937FR blue crowned conure "Carmen"

Should be "mariner"

Quoting FATFlyer (Reply 1):
Gray Wolf - Fang or Jack (to commemorate Jack London's Book)

Jack is the rabbit, N940FR.

Gray Wolf should be "White Fang" (Shut up, it's close enough)
Fawn should be Bambi, shouldn't it?

And I can't think of any for N942FR.

I agree since White Fang is the true name of the book character, but I wasn't sure how a 2 word name would go over.

Thats all I got....

This is for someone without a name.

I like most of the suggestions so far. Thank you.

That's true Greg, but it didn't stop the porn industry from using Bambi. Not that I would know.

Is the gray wolf being renamed. You have N901FR showing the gray wolf already named "Wally"
My twelve year old son picks "snowflake" for the fawn. I'm guessing he's keying in on the white spots.  idea 

How about "Rocky Top" for the long horn sheep.

And how about "Critter" for the gray wolf.

The three names are:

Herman, Amanda, and Chuck, obviously.

Herman is the fawn (what did you think?)
Amanda is the wolf
Chuck is the Ram

Or Dexter. The Ram could be Dexter.

Really, anything but Keesje.

Maybe if F9 was based in TYS, that'd be perfect...

Considering most of the names that exist already are just names with some character and not especially meaningful otherwise, I think most of you are trying to be way too clever. And they aren't going to take a trademarked or copyrighted name either, as that involves money...

But how about Geddy Lee for the wolf?

Ah yes TYS, the gateway to the Smokies. F9 operates somewhat close, BNA is a mere 174 miles to the west. I just drove through Knoxville and Nashville last week. I know the I-40 and I-81 corridor well.
