Name that bird

So far all 30 turkeys in the presidential flock are named "Tom."

The Minnesota Turkey Growers Association is running a contest to pick two names for the two Kandiyohi County turkeys that will travel to Washington, D.C.

A naming contest, conducted on the organization's Facebook page, generated dozens of suggestions that have been narrowed down to 20 top choices.

People can vote on their favorite name by going to http://www.facebook.com/minnesotaturkey. Voting ends Tuesday.

Some of the options include Minne and Sota; Lucky and Luckier; Sven and Ole; Lutefisk and Lefsa; and Ted and Ray.

The final selection of names will be left to President Obama and his family.
