Name the Baby!

Fort Worth Zoo staff selected six names for the baby elephant from which the public may choose:

 

Belle (short for Bluebell) - The bluebell is a wildflower found throughout Texas; symbolizes humility and gratitude.

Maggie (short for Magnolia) - Symbolizes sweetness, beauty and love of nature.

Rose - “The Yellow Rose of Texas” is an iconic song of Texas.

Ruby - One of the four precious stones and July’s birthstone; rubies are laid beneath buildings in Asian countries to secure good fortune for the structure.

Sage - Purple sage is the official native shrub of Texas.

Tujuh (too-joo) - Means “seven” in Indonesian; this calf was born in the seventh month on the seventh day of the seventh moon.

 

Voting will take place from July 11 to 25 on the Fort Worth Zoo’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/fortworthzoo) and at the Asian elephant exhibit inside the Zoo.

The name that receives the most votes will be the baby elephant’s name. The winning name will be announced July 25 on the Zoo’s website and Facebook page.
