The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden says name suggestions for the baby giraffe will be accepted on the Zoo's Facebook and Twitter accounts through end of day Wednesday, Oct. 17. 

On Thursday, Oct. 18, the Zoo will post the top three names, chosen by Zoo staff, on its Facebook page. There, people can vote for their favorite and the winning name will be announced Friday.   

The female giraffe, born Friday, Oct. 12, is doing well and spending this time bonding with her mom, "Tessa" and her dad, "Kimba" in their indoor stall at Giraffe Ridge. 

Beginning Monday, Oct. 15,  Zoo visitors can view the family through windows on the Giraffe Ridge deck.
