Well, it's the moment we've been waiting for. Fans who've been eagerly watching the most-dramatic giraffe pregnancy unfold before them will finally have the answer they've sorely sought since April gave birth to a healthy and happy baby boy.

What is this little cutie's dang name?

Today, zoo officials released a list of 10 potential names for April's brand new calf. And guess what? You can vote for your favorites!

Will we be as baffled by these names as when Beyonce introduced us to Blu Ivy? We hope so!

Here they are:

  1. Unity
  2. Patches
  3. Apollo
  4. Patch
  5. Gio
  6. Harpur
  7. Geoffrey
  8. Noah
  9. Ollie
  10. *Allow April's handler, Allysa, to pick the name.

Votes go for a $1 donation, and those interested in voting must purchase a minimum of five votes. Donations go towards park upkeep, giraffe conservation efforts, and a fund to support area families with medical expenses, reports New York Upstate News.

So, just where did this list of names come from?

Animal Adventure Park held the first phase of this naming contest over the past week. For a $5 donation, people suggested up to five names to be considered in the second phase of the contest, when officials would pull the 10 most-submitted names and submit them to the public for a vote.

April the Giraffe rose to celebrity status over the past several months during a long-awaited pregnancy, which was live-streamed by her handlers at New York's Animal Adventure Park.

The actual birth was streamed on the park's Facebook page and was viewed more than 8 million times.

A livestream of the park's giraffe enclosure where April and her calf live is the second most live-viewed YouTube Channel, second only to a popular video-game tournament.

The livestream can be watched every Tuesday from 4 p.m. - 8 p.m. on the park's YouTube or the embed below.
