Cute baby. Thanks for naming him after me.

OKC Zoo’s baby elephant ventures outside, to get name today

UPDATE: According to NewsOK, the baby elephant born last month at the Oklahoma City Zoo has been named Malee. Zoo officials announced the name at a ceremony Wednesday in the zoo’s new elephant habitat. Malee (pronounced MAY-lee) was chosen in an online vote. Malee, which is Thai for flower or jasmine, garnered more than 70 percent of the 14,000 votes cast (including mine). Zoo officials billed Malee as the zookeepers’ preference out of the three names offered. Other options were Annika and Hanako.
