April The Giraffe’s Baby Gets A Name!

April the Giraffe has been in the spotlight for quite awhile, especially with her new baby calf having been born a few weeks ago. The giraffe first hit fame with her live adventure cam, in which anyone could watch her and what she was up to while waiting for her new baby to arrive.

A few weeks after the world waited, April finally had her baby.

One of the challenges with the new giraffe is what to name it. So the Animal Adventure Park (where April and her new baby live) put on a public contest to come up with a name. People paid for their ballots in naming the baby, according to WUMR.

It was announced this morning on Good Morning America that the baby giraffe has been named “Tajiri” – swahili for “hope.”

The semi-finalist names include: Apollo, Geoffrey, Gio, Harpur, Noah, Ollie, Patch, Patches and Unity.

We wish Tajiri a long and happy life! Watch the live feed below!
