The baby elephant is male (a bull elephant) and Dublin Zoo are looking for a name "inspired by his Indian origin".
Fans have three weeks to submit their name ideas by private messing the Natural Confectionary Company on Facebook with "no more than 50 words telling us why you chose the name" and their contact details.
Whoever submits the chosen name will be invited to the announcement ceremony in Dublin Zoo along with several prizes.
