Indianapolis Zoo asking for help to name new giraffe calf

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indianapolis Zoo is asking for help naming their newest addition.

The zoo launched a poll on Facebook to help choose a name for their new giraffe calf. Kita, 3, gave birth to the baby boy earlier this month. The giraffe calf is 6-feet tall, 137-pounds.

The zoo has narrowed it down to three choices:

  • Kendi, an African name that means “loved one.”
  • Tumaini, which is a Swahili word meaning “hope.”
  • Zane, an African name that means “noble.”

The poll runs through Dec. 7.

The new arrival is the Indianapolis Zoo’s fifth giraffe.
