Reid Park Zoo's African elephant calf, now one month old, has a name! A
poll conducted through the Arizona Daily Star’s Caliente received
7,880 votes, with 65% selecting Nandi as her name.

Nandi (Nahn-dee) is a common siSwati girl’s name, and in the Zulu
language it means “sweet” or “fun.” This calf has proven herself
to be both - capturing the hearts of Tucson residents. With two older
brothers, this feminine name also celebrates the joy of welcoming a
female calf to Tucson.
