The results are in and voters have named the St. Louis Zoo's newest edition. 

Nearly 54-thousand votes were submitted for the zoo’s “Name the Baby Elephant” poll and the name Priya emerged the winner with 15,777 – or 29.4 percent – of the votes.  Runner-up was Willow followed by Violet, Cai and Harper. 

 Priya weighed in at 251 pounds when she was born at the zoo on April 26. She’s the third daughter for Ellie, and the fourth daughter for 20-year-old Raja.

Raja was the first elephant ever born at the St. Louis Zoo.

The zoo’s elephant care team initially selected five female names—Priya, Cai, Harper, Violet and Willow - and asked the public to vote for their favorites on the zoo’s website, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest accounts or through ballots submitted on site.

Runner-up Willow received 13,311 votes and Violet received 12,508 votes. Cai came in fourth with 7,006 votes and Harper 5,084.

Priya has yet to make her debut to the public.
