Chippy 2000 has a strange name, no doubt. The name originated from a classroom conversation about what to name this turtle upon finding it in October 2015. Since every class that finds a turtle gets automatic naming rights, Mark Eastburn opened the discussion to names, of which “Chippy” and “2000” appeared to be the most popular. In order to quell the argument that surely would have erupted over which name might finally be chosen, we decided to give this little turtle both, and everybody seemed happy in the end.
