The day has finally arrived.

April the giraffe’s baby boy was officially given a name: Tajiri.

You can call him “Taj,” for short.

That was the result of a nationwide naming vote where the public picked “Alyssa’s choice.” That gave one of the giraffe’s best-known caretakers the opportunity to select whichever name she liked most.

Animal Adventure Park revealed his name at 8:30 a.m. Monday on Good Morning America.

Here are the nine other options for the giraffe’s name:

– Apollo
– Geoffrey
– Gio
– Harpur
– Noah
– Ollie
– Patch
– Patches
– Unity

April became a social media sensation earlier this year as millions anxiously waited to watch her give birth. That moment came last month.
