It’s a girl!

Our Siamang pair, Eve and Wayan, welcomed their first baby on Labor Day. The little family is doing great, and it’s time to give the new little girl a name! The little one was an unexpected (but welcome) surprise, so we’re doing a post-birth baby shower. (Read the full birth announcement here.)

Our Primate World keepers have come up with some great name choices for the new baby girl.
Voting ended on Nov. 1, 2020 at 5 p.m. – Find out the winning name and watch the announcement video!

Names voted on were:

Binti – Indonesian for “daughter”
Naomi – the real first name of Rosie the Riveter, since the baby was born on Labor Day
Rahsia (RAH’-see-uh) – Malay for “secret,” since she was a surprise baby
Rosie – after Rosie the Riveter, since the baby was born on Labor Day

Shower the Siamang family with gifts!
