I was thinking about naming this swan after the historian, Herodotus. as nothing keeps her from her appointed task of protecting and incubating her clutch.
"It is said that as many days as there are in the whole journey, so many are the men and horses that stand along the road, each horse and man at the interval of a day’s journey; and these are stayed neither by snow nor rain nor heat nor darkness from accomplishing their appointed course with all speed."
— Herodotus, Histories (8.98) (trans. A. D. Godley, 1924)
