Frogs: Angels of the Forest

In early September, we wrote a post about The Prince’s Rainforest Project contest to name its rainforest frog mascot. I’ve just learned that they picked a name: Orifiel, which means angel of the forest.

I did a little research because I had never heard of this angel. Orifiel is an archangel, one of the angels that are part of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim traditions. Unlike the more charismatic angels like Gabriel, Rafael, or Michael, Orifiel is a bit more mysterious. In fact, I could only find information about him/her on a couple of angelology sites. On these sites, Orifiel is described as the angel of the wilderness who helps save the wild areas of earth.

We like the image of frogs as angels of the wildnerness!


Name that Frog!

The Prince’s Rainforest Project is looking for suggestions for a name for its frog mascot!

I need a name!

I need a name!

You can submit a name on the Name the Frog page and it will be posted on the website. Susan came up with a great name: Prince Greenway.

Check out this video, in which various people, including the Dalai Lama, come up with possible names. I like Harrison Ford’s suggestion—Charlie (after a certain HRH, the Prince of Wales).
