Meet the Adorable Baby Giraffe Who Was Just Born at the Cincinnati Zoo

Cincinnati Zoo

They're currently accepting name suggestions

Early this morning, a giraffe named Tessa gave birth to a female calf at the Cincinnati Zoo. As it turns out, baby giraffes are really, really cute.

The healthy, 125-pound calf hasn’t received a name yet, and the zoo is currently accepting suggestions on its Facebook page. Personally, I’m feeling Ellie (full name: Eleanor Roosevelt), Maggie (full name: Margaret Thatcher), Leslie (full name: Leslie Knope), or Hillz (full name: Hillary Rodham Clinton.) I’d also be okay if she were named Banana Pudding. In fact, yes, I think we should definitely name her Banana Pudding.

The zoo is only taking suggestions through Tuesday, April 29, so act fast. They’ll announce the final four choices on May 1 for a public vote.

Just look at her, hanging out with her mom. Doesn’t she totally look like a Banana Pudding, or at least a Hillz?
