  • Katie Pilgram, St. Louis Zoo
  • She has a name! It's Kenzi.
The internet has spoken! She shall be known as Kenzi.

As we reported last month, the St. Louis Zoo was seeking public input on a name for their new baby elephant. The Asian elephant calf was born June 27th to Rani and Raja, and weighed in at 297 pounds.

After she was born, zoo staff came up with four possible names and put it to a vote on the zoo's web site. The name Kenzi, which means "my treasure," beat out "June," "Zoe," and "Mya."

Welcome, Kenzi!
