BIG BEAR, Calif. (KABC) -- Many have been following the birth of Big Bear's most famous couple's new eaglet. Now, you have a chance to name it!

A naming contest is underway for adult eagles Jackie and Shadow's eaglet. Since the gender of the chick is unknown, Friends of Big Bear Valley - the organization running the contest - suggests submitting a gender-neutral name.

Thirty-five names will be drawn and a Big Bear 3rd grade class will cast the final vote on the new name.

Yes, you can submit the same name multiple times.

The eaglet hatched last week. It took in its surroundings for the first time last Thursday, and it was all captured on video thanks to a livestream provided by the Friends of Big Bear Valley nest camera.
