Three Dolphin Babies Now Have Names!

Dolphin Quest Bermuda would like to thank the public for helping to name the three dolphin babies. Cooper, Cavello and Marley are the winning names chosen for Dolphin Quest’s newest dolphins selected from over 500 entries.

In April, Caliban, Bailey and Ely gave birth within 13 days of each other to Cooper, Cavello and Marley respectively. Dolphin Quest received name suggestions from across Bermuda and the world after Dolphin Quest launched its name the baby contest in June.

The name selected for Caliban’s boy is “Cooper”. Cooper was named after the Old Cooperage Building which is the former barrel-making factory in Dockyard, now home to one of Bermuda’s largest craft markets.

Bailey’s girl was named “Cavello” after the beautiful Cavello Bay in Bermuda’s West End.

Ely’s girl was named “Marley” after the magnificent Marley Beach on Bermuda’s south shore.

“Dolphin Quest would like to sincerely thank all who participated in the dolphin naming contest”, said Roma Hayward, Manager of Marine Animals for Dolphin Quest Bermuda. “There were many great suggestions, and choosing the final three names was no easy task.”

Those who submitted the winning names will receive a VIP dolphin experience and get to meet the newly named dolphins in person.
