Seth Rogen joyous after octopus is named Ceph Rogen in his honour
A public vote decided the cephalopod from Vancouver Aquarium’s name.
An octopus has been named after Canadian actor and comedian Seth Rogen after a public naming contest.
Ceph Rogen is a cephalopod from Vancouver Aquarium whose name earned a whopping 90% of the vote after Rogen himself promoted it.
The 36-year-old from Vancouver shared the public vote to Twitter, writing: “Please vote for me to have an octopus named after me at the aquarium I grew up going to.”
It’s fair to say he was pretty chuffed with the emphatic victory, which saw second placed name Octavia humbled.

Rogen had a lot of support on hand for the octopus-naming efforts.
Ceph Rogan. Omg I’m dying. That is so genius. Mad props to whoever came up with that one. PS, I voted. 🐙🐙🐙 Can I call him Cephy for short?— eponymous_momma (@4mandez) November 9, 2018
Although some thought there were other ways the Superbad star’s name could have been shoe-horned in.

For some though, only one question remains – when will Ceph meet Seth?
Your move Rogen.
