Voters choose name of iconic Texas brand for Fort Worth's newest baby giraffe

A giraffe born at the Fort Worth Zoo has a fitting name for a Texan – Lucchese.

The new baby boy is named after the Texas boot brand. His name got more than 5,000 votes in a naming contest.

Lucchese was born in May and spent his first month mostly indoors with his mom because of all the rain.

He took his first steps into the zoo’s Savanna exhibit Monday morning.
