Earlier this month, the zoo began asking visitors to vote for their favorite names for the cute kids. Visitors were asked to choose six out of 10 names of Oklahoma towns.

After almost 4,500 votes were cast, the goats now have names.

On Tuesday, zoo officials announced that the chosen names are as follows:

  • Sayre
  • Ada
  • Idabel
  • Ripley
  • Checotah
  • Prue.

“Anytime we can engage the community when introducing our animals, it’s exciting,” said Eddie Witte, animal curator. “I hope everyone who voted comes to the OKC Zoo and meets the goat named for their community.”
