Vote for Baby Giraffee Name!

From Six Flags Discovery Kingdom:

A big thank you to all of you who entered our Giraffe Baby Naming Contest.
The contest closed on January 15 and we went to work to compile the more than 650 names sent in. There were some very creative and thought-provoking names. Many of you also took the time to do research to find the perfect name for our little “big” guy. We appreciate your attention to detail!

You can now vote for the Top 5 names as selected by a panel of judges from our animal care department. Please vote once from January 20-29, after which the polls will close. The winning name will be announced on or about February 1.

The Top 5 names met the contest criteria that included use of a name that included a special meaning related to the reticulated giraffe's native range of northeast Africa, Somalia and northern Kenya. These included words in Swahilli, other languages, or based on a cultural or historical reference.

Please note that the rules indicate that the duplicate submissions of the winning name will be picked randomly for the final grand prize. If your name is selected, like submissions will be placed together and the final winner will be randomly pulled from a hat.

VOTE FOR Zuberi (STRONG)


VOTE FOR Zuwadi (GIFT)


VOTE FOR Kendi (the loved one)
