The Albuquerque BioPark's newest addition needs a name.

The public is invited to vote on a name for the new baby elephant on the BioPark's Facebook page and in person at the zoo.

The top choices include Chamiza and Jazmine, which are modeled after the names of the baby's mom and sister, Rozie and Dazie.

The other two choices include Nita, who was a beloved elephant at the San Francisco Zoo, and Roxy, a name long loved by the zookeepers.

The winning name will be announced next Monday.
