The University of Toledo's new female mascot will be named Rocksy following a month-long online university poll.

Of the 1,779 who voted, 812 were UT students and another 394 were Rocket fans, according to the UT marketing and communications office. The rest of the voters were faculty, staff, and other.

For the time being, Rocksy will not appear at athletic events and only represent the university at community gatherings and campus functions, according to UT vice president for external affairs Larry Burns.

Other suggestions for the new female mascot's name from the online poll were Rachel, Ricki, Rochel, Rochelle, and Rockelle. Rocky the Rocket has been UT's primary mascot since 1968.
