The zoo hopes the name will help draw attention to the okapi species, which are extremely endangered. They also said, "The name is particularly fitting because okapis were coincidentally first brought to the world’s attention in 1901 by another Harry - ZSL fellow Sir Harry Johnstone."

But we think it’s also because little Meghan is just as graceful and beautiful as her namesake. 

How royally perfect is this newborn?
