Help Name a Hippo

I’m pulling for Dumplin’.




The Richmond Metro Zoo was lucky enough to have a baby born on December 6th. Now they’re looking for some help in the naming process.

Virginia’s most famous hippopotamus needs a name, and we need your help. Vote for your favorite name below! The poll closes Sunday, January 22 at 11:59 PM.

We want to thank everyone for submitting name ideas for our little hippo. It was difficult selecting only a few favorite names from the thousands of recommendations. The final names were suggested by followers and/or our team.

This hippo baby was born on December 6 to parents Iris and Corwin. She is now over 1 month old and is growing like a weed.

You can vote here and the options are below.
