Komodo Dragon Naming

Help us name our young male Komodo Dragon!

On June 28, we revealed our newest addition to the Aquarium family, a juvenile male Komodo dragon. This impressive reptile was born on November 11, 2021, at the Bronx Zoo and arrived at our facility in late June. Now that he has settled in for a few days, it’s time to name him!

Our naming contest will consist of two phases. In the first phase, we will gather as many names as possible through the form below. Our staff will then select the top 3 names from those submitted. In the second phase, our followers on Social Media will be able to participate in a poll to vote for their favorite.

Phase 1: Name Submissions

Submissions are closed.

Submit your name idea below and be entered to win four (4) tickets to the Aquarium!

A winner of Aquarium Tickets will be selected on July 6, 2023, and will be contacted via the email provided. If they do not reply to accept their tickets within 72 hours, an alternate winner will be selected. Winning the ticket giveaway does not guarantee that your name idea will be the winning name.

Up to 10 unique entries are allowed for extra chances to win. Participants under 18 years old must provide a guardian’s email. See full terms and conditions.

Phase 2: Voting on Social Media

The top 3 names have been selected by Aquarium staff!

The final names are Naga, Raja, and Sunda.

Guests can vote in person during their visit by stopping at the Information desk. You can also vote in our online poll on social media by clicking below.
