Mascot Naming Contest: Time to Vote!

Our mascot… who will soon no longer be nameless!

Last week, we asked you to help us name our new mascot by tweeting suggestions with #AltmetricDonut or e-mailing them in. We were delighted to receive 32 names in total. They were puns on “Altmetric”, donut puns, and a mix of male (62.5%) and female (37.5%) names.


The entries came flying in fast!

Today we narrowed the entries down to our favourite 4. (Unfortunately, we decided to disqualify “Aldo” seeing as it’s the name of one of our team members! It might be a suitable middle name, though…) Now it’s your turn to vote on your favourite name out of the chosen 4. The winning name will be announced on Friday.


Your choices are Riemann, President Icinghower, Donutello, and Iris. Click here to cast your vote!
