To all those who may have voted in the baby naming of the new African penguin chick at Atlantis Marine World in Riverhead in April, the results are in. It's Pam.

The African penguin chick, whose named is taken from Jenna Fischer's character on NBC sitcom "The Office," will remain a permanent resident at Atlantis and join the Penguin Pavilion exhibit this summer.

Those who voted had to choose from "Baby" (rooted in "Seinfeld"), "Pam," and "Pebbles" (taken from where penguins live, the beach, not from "The Flintstones").
