The Cincinnati Zoo's newest member of the flamingo flock became an internet sensation when it hatched live on Facebook last week.
Now, after nearly 7,800 votes, the chick has a name.
On Tuesday, the zoo tweeted, "Welcome to the world, Taffy!"

The zoo used a Facebook poll to determine what he/she will be called.
The options were Cornell (after Chris Cornell), Streamer (because the hatching was streamed live), Phoenix, Taffy or Ostrich.
