Here is your chance to name one of the Oakland Zoo's baby baboons.

The little baboon has become the first-ever male baboon born there. He was born alongside his sister "Kabili" last month. The name Kabili means to be honest or brave.

The zoo is hosting a naming contest for the baby boy and the public has three Swahili names to choose from. They are:

Muriu -- meaning son
Maliki -- meaning king
Mazi -- meaning sir
