Over 40,000 People Voted

Nearly 40,000 people voted in a contest to decide the triplets names. Runners-up included “Snap, Crackle and Pop”, and “Mocha, Chino and Latte.”

According to a post on instagram, Rush is pretty happy about the ‘honour’ but Geddy Lee was wondering which pup was named after him since none of them were wearing glasses.
