Brookfield Zoo recently welcomed a new baby gorilla.
She was born November 4th last year and she still needs a name!
The names are down to a final list:
- Alima—which is a river in the Republic of Congo, where western lowland gorillas are native
- Amelia—which means “industrious leader” or “flatterer”
- Emma—named after Emma Stokes, a gorilla researcher who “discovered” a large population of western lowland gorillas in the Republic of Congo
- Nora—which means “light” or “honor”
The voting ends March 3.
Starting Tuesday, you can go to BrookfieldZoo.org/gorillaname to place your vote.
On Tuesday, March 4, WGN’s Marcus Leshock will be revealing the name on the WGN Morning News.
