The Cincinnati Zoo says its new baby giraffe now has a name.

The male calf was born Nov. 23 and has been named Theo. Zoo leaders say they picked that name because it means “divine gift."

Theo was sired by Kimba, a 12-year-old male giraffe who died last month of complications after surgery on his hooves.

Officials say he is the 17th giraffe born at the zoo.
