Katie Pilgram, St. Louis Zoo
She has a name! It's Kenzi.
The internet has spoken! She shall be known as Kenzi.
As we reported last month
, the St. Louis Zoo was seeking public input on a name for their new baby elephant. The Asian elephant calf was born June 27th to Rani and Raja
, and weighed in at 297 pounds.
After she was born, zoo staff came up with four possible names and put it to a vote on the zoo's web site. The name Kenzi, which means "my treasure," beat out "June," "Zoe," and "Mya."
