The ABQ BioPark Zoo’s newest member is getting a lot of attention with its new name.

Rozie the Asian elephant gave birth to a healthy male calf last week.

Over the last few days, people have voted to decide the baby’s name, Thorn.

The name was chosen from a list of three final choices, the other two being Ren or Solo.

Zookeepers say Thorn continues a tradition of flower names like others in his herd.
