The Louisville Zoo’s Baby Elephant’s Name is…


Over 15,500 names were submitted and the votes have been tallied in the Elephant Calf Naming Contest. The Zoo and Norton Children’s heart transplant recipient 23-month-old Eli Alexander revealed the winning name today at 1:00pm at the Louisville Zoo.  It was down to Fitz, Rocket and Walt…and the winning name is Fitz!

The person who submitted the winning name will receive a behind-the-scenes tour with five guests to meet the calf and his mother, Mikki; a prize basket with merchandise from the zoo and Norton Children’s Hospital, and a Comfy Cow gift certificate.

Mikki and the calf are on exhibit daily at the zoo from 10 a.m. to noon.
