NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Fans of the Audubon Aquarium have passed up penguin-related monikers to name the aquarium’s youngest African blackfooted penguin chick “Hubig,” after a New Orleans snack pie company that burned down a year ago.
Aquarium spokeswoman Katie Smith said Monday that “Hubig” got 42 percent of 3,068 votes cast last week. “Pippa” — for English Princess Kate Middleton’s sister and the baby penguin’s efforts to “pip” out of her shell — got 28 percent.
Twenty percent chose “Gwynne” and 11 percent “Namibia.”
Gwynne is the name of a penguin in the animated movie “The Pebble and the Penguin.”
Namibia is the West African nation where the African penguin nests.
The Simon Hubig Pie Co. plans to rebuild in the same general area where its original factory stood.
