Thanks. Karen and the Hippos.
that is good news..
my choice: nili – that will work for male and female i suppose
in german hippopotamus is nilpferd (horse from river nile)
hope everyone is healthy and fine
i´m right now in the “down” of livelong up and down, waiting for the next “up” 😉 – just family problems
Hi Dagmar sorry to hear about the down but as you rightly said you can only go one way and that is up. 🙂 Love and hugs sorry you did not win the name the hippo baby xxx
