Lincoln Park Zoo's first arrival of 2014, a female baby Klipspringer, is not yet ready for her public debut but the zoo is looking for your help in giving her a name.

The zoo has narrowed the choices for naming the dwarf antelope to five names, all in Swahili, and have put them up to an online vote. The names are:

Nadra (special)
Zuri (pretty)
Amira (princess)
Asha (hope)
Bahiya (beautiful)

Voting opened Tuesday and runs through noon May 14, with the winning name to be announced May 15. So be a true Chicagoan and vote early and often.
