Cheyenne Mountain Zoo wants help naming its week-old giraffe, the 200th born at the zoo.

The female calf was about 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighed about 120 pounds when she was born June 4 to 20-year-old Muziki. The zoo's herd now has 18 giraffes, with another on the way.

"After hundreds of great name suggestions, we have narrowed it down to three choices, each of which has a special significance," the zoo's website says.

The options are CC, which means 200 in Roman numerals; Mia, short for mia mbili, which means 200 in Swahili; and Penny, short for Penrose, inspired by the zoo's founder, Spencer Penrose.

Vote online until July 1 at cmzoo.org/index.php/help-us-name-giraffe-calf-200.

More votes can be cast at the zoo. Every bundle of giraffe lettuce purchased allows the zoo visitor to vote at the lettuce hut.
