VOTE: The 8News Elf needs a name

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Our own Elf on the Shelf showed up in our newsroom today! We’re asking you to help us name him.

We got some great suggestions from our viewers, so now it is time for the big vote.

Our five names to choose from are Ric James, Ocho, Newsome, Jasper Snickets, and Elvin.

We will announce the winning name during Good Morning Richmond on Friday.
