Como Zoo Seeks Help Naming Baby Orangutan
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - St. Paul's Como Zoo is asking the public's help in naming its newest orangutan.
The female Sumatran orangutan was born January 7th via C-section. She went to the University of Minnesota Veterinary Medical Center for a short time and is now reunited with her mother.
Zoo staff members have picked three potential names for the little girl and they are asking the public to weigh in.
The potential names are: Aanjay (On-jay), which means unconquerable; Cinta (Chin-tah), which means love; and Kemala (Key-mala), which means "magic stone."
The zoo is asking the public to vote by making donations for their favorite name. Donations can be made on the zoo's website or in person.
The winning name will be announced in mid-February.
