To Mzungu and Shaba: a baby - or rather, a calf.
He came in at between 70 and 100 kilograms at birth and stood - or rather wobbled - two metres tall.
He is the younger brother of Kebibi and Nzuri.
But a name he does not have. That's for the visitors to the zoo to decide.
The choices are Shavu, Kahmisi, Huru, Usiku, Amanzi or Soksi. There is no MIke or Dave.
The birth announcement for the giraffe said: "The National Zoo and Aquarium is overjoyed to celebrate the arrival of our newest giraffe calf! We gave our keeping staff the chance to put forward some names for the calf, from which they selected the most suitable!"
Visitors are now asked to circle their favourite, with the winner announced next week.
The nameless one seemed unmoved on Monday, snoozing in front of the publicity camera shoot.
He is indifferent to being pampered, according to "hoof stock supervisor" Sophie Dentrinos (giraffes have hooves).
"Rhinos love a good scratch but these guys don't really," the keeper said.
All the same, a surly reticence in front of cameras is not the newcomer's usual way, she said.
"He was cheeky from the beginning. He's got a lovely nature," the keeper said.
Giraffes give birth standing up, and so it was with Mzungu and her son. Giraffes have horns and the nameless one is no exception but they are soft and folded in the unborn head, only to spring out and grow after birth.
The nameless one is a growing lad. From two metres at birth, he puts on another couple of centimetres or so every day. He gets through the food, devouring 30 to 40 kilos of grass a day.
It took 14 months from conception to birth. The staff kept away from the birth and let it all happen naturally, monitoring the delivery on closed-circuit television but ready to intervene if necessary.
The mum has since kept up her interest in the growing nameless one.
The father is not so interested in the result of his previous effort. The keeper said he was trying to get the mother pregnant again.
The nameless one will grow to about five metres in height. His tongue may reach half a metre. It's dark blue so it doesn't get sunburnt.
