Think you can do a better job of naming her? Now is your chance to get involved and think of something more exciting. Please comment on this ‘pinned post’ with your suggestions before 12 noon on 7 April 2017. Once collated, the best six suggestions will be put to the public vote via Facebook, with the winner announced on 21 April. And no, we won’t be calling it Floaty McFloatface! We’ll be vetoing that suggestion!
