Fresno's Chaffee Zoo holds giraffe naming contest

FRESNO, California

The baby giraffe was born in July. Mother "Baba" gave birth to the "little" boy ... who measured more than six feet tall at birth.

Staff members have come up with a list of five potential names for the two month old.

They've come up with Jabari, Hasani, Modomo, Ruka, and Johari.

Jabari means "brave, fearless", Hasani means "handsome", Modomo means "lip" or "mouth", Ruka means "jump" or "hop", and Johari means "jewel".
